It is old friend alert galore as the Dodgers shift their road trip to Phoenix, ready to battle the Diamondbacks for three games beginning Monday night at Chase Field. Here is a look at the schedule and probable starting pitchers between the two teams in Arizona, including two from each side facing their original team.
Monday, 6:40 p.m. PT (SportsNet LA)
Mike Bolsinger faced his old team just once this year, allowing two runs in seven innings, matching his season best with eight strikeouts on June 8 at Dodger Stadium. That was the last win for Bolsinger, who has lasted 4⅔, 5⅓ and 4⅔ innings in his last three starts. Allen Webster has never faced the Dodgers since getting dealt in the Punto Trade™. In three major league starts this season Webster has 10 walks and nine strikeouts, with three home runs allowed in 15⅓ innings.
Tuesday, 6:40 p.m. (SportsNet LA)
Carlos Frias played with fire and battled sickness to gut through five scoreless innings on Wednesday at Wrigley Field. After lasting at least six innings in four of five starts, Frias has not pitched longer than 5⅓ innings in his last three starts. The Dodgers have battered old friend Rubby De La Rosa in their two meetings this year, to the tune of four home runs and 14 runs in 10 innings, both at Dodger Stadium.
Wednesday, 6:40 p.m. (SportsNet LA)
Arizona drafted Brett Anderson in the second round in 2006, and in three starts against his original organization this year has a 3.71 ERA with 11 strikeouts and two walks in 17 innings, and three no-decisions. The Dodgers have beaten two straight left-handed starters to improve to 6-8 against southpaws in 2015. Robbie Ray allowed just two runs in 6⅔ innings at Dodger Stadium on June 9, but was stuck with the tough-luck loss.
