The Dodgers are back home on dry land in Los Angeles, with no snow in sight and the Marlins in town for three games at Dodger Stadium. Here is a look at the pitching matchups for the three games:
Monday, 7:10 p.m. PT (SportsNet LA)
Zack Greinke since joining the Dodgers is 20-4 with a 2.43 ERA in 32 starts at Dodger Stadium, with 208 strikeouts and 44 walks in 211 innings. Tom Koehler on the road this season has allowed 14 runs and 18 hits in 14⅔ innings, including five home runs.
Tuesday, 7:10 p.m. PT (SportsNet LA)
The Dodgers haven't announced a starter for Tuesday yet but Mike Bolsinger was scratched from his start on Monday for Oklahoma City, so look for him to start in Los Angeles in the middle game of the series, his second start of the season for the Dodgers. Old friend Dan Haren allowed six home runs in only 24 innings in April, but has won both starts in May, allowing two runs in 13 innings, with no walks and no homers allowed, and seven strikeouts.
Wednesday, 4:50 p.m. PT (SportsNet LA)
Carlos Frias has been stingy with the walk this season, walking three with 11 strikeouts in 12⅔ innings in the majors, plus 15 strikeouts and no walks in the minors. He has won each of his last three appearances, including two starts. The Dodgers have scored 22 runs in his two starts this season. Jarred Cosart, who went from Houston to Miami last year with Kiké Hernandez, has a 3.67 ERA this season but is just 1-3, thanks in part to 14 total runs of support in six starts, including just eight runs with Cosart in the game. Miami has scored two or fewer runs in four of Cosart's six starts.
The series finale has a weird start time thanks to a quirk in the collective bargaining agreement.
