The Dodgers play their first repeat opponent of 2013 beginning Monday night, when the Padres come to town sans Quentin for a three-game series at Dodger Stadium. Here is a look at the pitching matchups and television schedule for the three night games at Chavez Ravine.
Monday, 7:10 p.m. (Prime Ticket)
Chad Billingsley looks for more of the same against the Padres, against whom he allowed just one run in six innings on Wednesday at Petco Park. Old friend Eric Stults, who also started Wednesday in San Diego, gets the call for the Padres. He took the loss last week after allowing home runs to Carl Crawford and A.J. Ellis. Stults will be the seventh left-handed starting pitcher to face the Dodgers in the first 13 games of the season.
Tuesday, 7:10 p.m. (KCAL)
Jason Marquis starts for the Padres, five days after he allowed two runs in five innings in a no-decision against the Dodgers at Petco Park. This game would have been a rematch as well were it not for Zack Greinke's uncooperative collarbone. Instead, Chris Capuano gets his first start after starting the year in the bullpen. Capuano put up a 3.13 ERA in four starts against San Diego last season but was just 1-2 in those starts.
Wednesday, 7:10 p.m. (KCAL)
Clayton Kershaw starts the series finale for the Dodgers, looking to bear down after actually giving up runs in a start his last time out. Kershaw in his last 12 home starts is 8-2 with a 1.21 ERA with 99 strikeouts and 22 walks in 89 innings. Tyson Ross starts for San Diego, after putting up a 4.82 ERA in a pair of starts, both Padres losses, against Colorado, though he did have 10 strikeouts in 9⅓ innings.
