Dodgers vs. Diamondbacks pitching matchups: Clayton Kershaw opens series

The Dodgers conclude their road trip with a three-game series in Phoenix against the Diamondbacks beginning on Friday night at Chase Field.

Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports

The Dodgers move on from their Zack Greinke woes to battle the Diamondbacks in Phoenix. There was so much anger, dismay, and hostility in the Dodgers clubhouse on Thursday night that one wonders if Clayton Kershaw will hit Gerardo Parra on Friday night just for old times sake.*

Here are the pitching matchups for the weekend series.

Friday, 6:40 p.m. PT (Prime Ticket, sort of)

Kershaw gets the call, trying to extend his scoreless streak past 20 innings. Patrick Corbin, who allowed three runs in 14⅓ innings to the Dodgers in 2012, is the sixth left-handed starting pitcher they will have faced in 10 games this season.

Saturday, 5:10 p.m. PT (KCAL)

Hyun-jin Ryu looks for his third quality start in three tries on Saturday night, his first road game. Ian Kennedy gets the call for the Diamondbacks.

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

After two mediocre starts, Josh Beckett looks to get back on track in the series finale, facing off against Trevor Cahill.
