The Dodgers open up a four-game series at home against the Brewers on Thursday night. Here is a look at the scheduled starting pitchers for the weekend series at Dodger Stadium:
Thursday, 7:10 p.m. PT (SportsNet LA)
Scott Kazmir has allowed three home runs and struck out 39 in six home starts, compared to nine home runs allowed and 36 strikeouts in seven road starts. Junior Guerra joined the Brewers' rotation from Triple-A in May, and has lasted six innings in seven of his eight starts, including his last three outings, putting up a 3.31 ERA with 41 strikeouts and 17 walks in 49 innings.
Friday, 7:10 p.m. (SportsNet LA)
Julio Urias goes for a jackpot third straight start with seven strikeouts, looking to build off his last two impressive outings. Zach Davies has allowed three runs in three June starts, with 21 strikeouts against only four walks in 21 innings.
Saturday, 7:10 p.m. (SportsNet LA)
With a pending off day on June 23, Saturday the Dodgers could shuffle the rotation if needed, meaning, combined with others in Triple-A and/or rehabbing getting closer and closer to major league readiness, Mike Bolsinger on Saturday might be pitching to retain a spot on the active roster. Chase Anderson has a 2.75 ERA in his last six starts, with 30 strikeouts and five walks in 36 innings.
Sunday, 1:10 p.m. (SportsNet LA)
Kenta Maeda is scheduled to start in the series finale, a prospect that seems more likely after his reported improvement on Wednesday after taking a line drive off his right shin on Tuesday. We should have a better idea on Thursday or Friday, after Maeda's between-starts bullpen session. Matt Garza missed the first two months of the season with a right lat strain before returning Tuesday with a four-inning outing at San Francisco. He struck out five and walked one, allowing a run on eight hits.
