LOS ANGELES -- The Dodgers had two days to stew over their 14-inning loss on Wednesday, but will welcome their season-long safety nets to Los Angeles, with a three-game series against the Diamondbacks at Dodger Stadium. The Dodgers are 12-4 against the Diamondbacks this season; the only year they have had a better record against Arizona was 2004, with a 16-3 mark.
Here are the scheduled pitching matchups for the weekend series.
Friday, 7:10 p.m. PT (SportsNet LA, MLB Network)
Dan Haren is 3-1 with a 4.26 ERA in four starts against Arizona this season, with 15 strikeouts and only one walk. Vidal Nuno has been very effective since joining the Diamondbacks in July with a 3.23 ERA, 49 strikeouts and 12 walks in 61⅓ innings. But Arizona is 1-9 in the southpaw's 10 starts thanks to 27 total runs scored in those games.

Zack Greinke has allowed two runs in three starts against the Diamondbacks this season, with 22 strikeouts and four walks in 19⅓ innings.

Hyun-jin Ryu has 63 strikeouts and nine walks 62 innings in his last 10 starts. Trevor Cahill in three home starts against the Dodgers in 2014 has allowed 20 runs and 19 hits in 11⅓ innings, but in two relief appearances at Dodger Stadium this year has retired all 12 batters he faced, with five strikeouts.
