The Dodgers return home for a six-game homestand at Dodger Stadium, beginning with a four-game series against the Reds. Here is a look at the television schedule and pitching matchups for the long weekend at Chavez Ravine.

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

Zack Greinke has allowed one run in 22 innings over his last three starts, and though he didn't garner a win in his last start, snapping a five-start winning streak, the Dodgers have won each of his last six starts. Mat Latos in three July starts has allowed 13 runs and 10 waks in 15 innings, though he does have 23 strikeouts during that span.

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

Clayton Kershaw has lasted at least seven innings in each of his last five starts, two shy of his career best streak, which he tied earlier this season. Homer Bailey no-hit the Giants on July 2, but has a 5.50 ERA in three starts since then, though with 22 strikeouts against just five walks.

Saturday, 6:10 p.m. (Prime Ticket)

Hyun-jin Ryu has exactly three strikeouts in each of his last three starts, though despite his nine strikeouts and seven walks and a 5.82 ERA in 17 innings during that span he is 2-0 and the Dodgers have won five straight starts by the left-hander. Bronson Arroyo has allowed five runs in four July starts. He has been with the Reds for eight seasons, and his Saturday start will give Arroyo 254 starts with Cincinnati, good for 10th place in the long history of the franchise.

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

Chris Capuano has allowed five earned runs and recorded 13 or fewer outs in three of his last four starts, with a 7.23 ERA during that span. Tony Cingrani made six starts in April and May for the Reds before moving to the bullpen. Since his return to the rotation in July, the left-hander has allowed exactly two runs in all four starts, with a 2.70 ERA during that span.
