For just the third time ever the Dodgers will host the Yankees in the regular season at Dodger Stadium. Here is a look at the television schedule for the two-game series, and the star-packed pitching matchups.
Tuesday, 7:10 p.m. PT (KCAL, MLB Network)
Zack Greinke lost his last start after winning five straight decisions, a rarity since it is the only loss by the Dodgers in the last 15 days. But he did last seven innings for the seventh time in his last 10 starts. During that span he has pitched 68 innings and is 6-2 with a 2.91 ERA with 55 strikeouts and 23 walks. Andy Pettitte, 41, allowed two runs in his last start, which snapped a string of five consecutive starts of allowing exactly four runs. With 252 career victories, Pettitte has the most career wins of any starter at Dodger Stadium since ... Jamie Moyer, who had 268 wins before his May 11, 2012 start against the Dodgers.
Wednesday, 7:10 p.m. PT (Prime Ticket)
Clayton Kershaw has a 1.74 ERA in 12 home starts this season, with 92 strikeouts in 88 innings. But he is just 6-4 in those games and the Dodgers are 6-6, thanks to 28 total runs of support, or 2.33 per game. Kershaw has 17 strikeouts and no walks since the All-Star break in two starts, both wins. Hiroki Kuroda will make his first start at Dodger Stadium since leaving the Dodgers after the 2011 season. The 38-year-old is having a magnificent season for the Yankees, second in the American League with a 2.51 ERA to go with 91 strikeouts and just 26 walks. He has allowed zero runs in three of his four July starts and for the month has allowed two total runs in 26 innings
