Here are your starting pitching matchups for the four-game series this week at Dodger Stadium between the Dodgers and Marlins.

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

Ross Stripling has yet to allow an extra-base hit to a right-handed batter this season, with righties 4-for-22 (.182) against him, with two walks and five strikeouts. Opposing runners have stolen off Wei-Yin Chen at a 76.9-percent clip (10-for-13) since the start of 2014, but they rarely get the chance. Among the 89 pitchers to make at least 50 starts during that time frame, Chen ranks eighth in fewest stolen base attempts allowed.

Tuesday, 7:10 p.m. (SportsNet LA)

Clayton Kershaw has 16 strikeouts, and 12⅔ innings, since his last walk at Dodger Stadium, which came on Sept. 24, 2015 against Arizona. Overall, Kershaw has three walks in four starts in 2016 and 24 straight starts with two or fewer free passes. Opposing batters have a .406 on-base percentage against Tom Koehler in his three starts so far this season, compared to his .327 lifetime mark entering 2016.

Wednesday, 7:10 p.m. (SportsNet LA)

Scott Kazmir has 31 strikeouts in 24 career innings against the Marlins to go with a 3.00 ERA, but he hasn't faced them since 2013. Jarred Cosart was traded with Kike Hernandez from the Astros to the Marlins, and now Hernandez is 2-for-2 with a home run against his former teammate.

Thursday, 7:10 p.m. (SportsNet LA, MLB Network)

Nobody dating back to at least 1913 has had four scoreless starts in their last five career games, but Kenta Maeda will attempt to do just that in the series finale. Jose Fernandez is 2-0 with a 2.84 ERA in three career starts against the Dodgers, with 25 strikeouts against just six unintentional walks in 19 innings.
