Dodgers vs. Mets schedule, probable starting pitchers

Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY Sports

The Dodgers are back home beginning Friday night, hosting the Mets for the first time in 2015 and playing New York for the first of two series in July. Here is a look at the weekend schedule and probable starting pitchers for the three games at Dodger Stadium.

Friday, 7:10 p.m. PT (SportsNet LA, ESPN)

Clayton Kershaw has double-digit strikeouts in five of his seven home starts, including each of his last four starts at Dodger Stadium. Kershaw is 4-2 with a 2.31 ERA in seven home starts this year, with 70 strikeouts and nine walks in 46⅔ innings. Noah Syndergaard has been pretty solid in his first nine major league starts, with 53 strikeouts and only 10 walks in 52⅔ innings to go with a 3.59 ERA. Syndergard is tops in baseball with his 96.9-mph fastball average among pitchers with at least 40 innings this season.

The ESPN broadcast, with Jon Sciambi on play-by-play with analysts Rick Sutcliffe and Doug Glanville, is a full national telecast, and will not be blacked out in the Los Angeles market.

Saturday, 4:15 p.m. (Fox)

Matt Harvey is third in baseball in fastball speed, with an average of 95.9 mph. He has also allowed two total runs in his last three starts, over 19⅔ innings. Zack Greinke brings a streak of 20⅔ scoreless innings into his Saturday start, having allowed 20 total runs in 16 starts all season.

Sunday, 1:10 p.m. (SportsNet LA)

Mike Bolsinger gutted through four scoreless innings but had to leave early thanks to eating some bad oysters in Miami, but that was the third time in four starts he failed to complete five innings, averaging 4⅔ innings during that span. Steven Matz makes his second major league start in the series finale, and his first road start. The left-hander did it all in his major league debut, allowing two runs in 7⅔ innings against the Reds last Sunday, and also went 3-for-3 with a double and four RBI.
