Dodgers vs. Padres TV schedule, & starting pitching matchups

The Arizona Republic-USA TODAY S

The Dodgers are 9-7 against the Padres this season, including 4-3 at Petco Park.

The Dodgers have already captured the National League West, so the weekend series against the Padres in San Diego has less urgency than previously expected. Here is a look at the television schedule and starting pitchers lined up for this weekend at Petco Park (all times PT).

Friday, 7:10 p.m. (Prime Ticket)

Edinson Volquez gets his first start against his old team in the series opener. Volquez led the National League with 105 walks in 2012 and, despite pitching just 159 innings in 2013, leads the NL this year with 105 earned runs allowed. Since returning the Padres in late August, left-hander Robbie Erlin has allowed just five total runs in three starts.

Saturday, 5:40 p.m. (Prime Ticket)

Clayton Kershaw has lost all three starts against the Padres this season and has allowed five home runs in 17⅓ innings against San Diego. Against every other team, Kershaw has allowed six home runs in 205⅔ innings. Burch Smith struck out 10 Braves on Sunday in seven scoreless innings in just his fifth major league start.

Sunday, 1:10 p.m. (Prime Ticket)

Since breaking his collarbone in San Diego on April 11, Zack Greinke has allowed two runs in 15 innings in two starts against the Padres, both wins. Andrew Cashner has lasted seven or more innings in each of his last six starts, with a 1.41 ERA during that span, including 38 strikeouts and seven walks in 44⅔ innings.
