The Dodgers finish up their road trip with three games against the Brewers at Miller Park in Milwaukee, and if we're going to get technical are scheduled to send three rookies to the mound in the series, with a total of 21 major league starts between them.

Here is a look at the schedule and the probable starting pitchers for the three-game series in Milwaukee.

Tuesday, 5:10 p.m. PT (SportsNet LA)

For the first time in his seven major league starts, Julio Urias will pitch against an opponent he has faced before. The left-hander struck out eight in five scoreless innings at home against Milwaukee on June 17. This will be the second straight start for Chase Anderson against the Dodgers, after the right-hander got blitzed for seven runs while recording just seven outs on June 18 in LA.

The 28-year-old in his third major league season was skipped the last time through the rotation, with manager Craig Counsell telling Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel "The purpose is to give him a break. If we look at his first two years in the major leagues (with Arizona), there was stuff scheduled with him when he did have a break. We have the off-days and we're able to do it, so we'll take advantage of it."

Wednesday, 5:10 p.m. (SportsNet LA)

Brock Stewart is expected to get the call from Triple-A for the middle game of the series, with just four walks and 10 runs allowed in his last seven minor league starts, with 55 strikeouts in 45 innings. Junior Guerra has a 3.09 ERA in five starts at Miller Park this season, with 26 strikeouts and nine walks in 32 innings.

Thursday, 11:10 a.m. (SportsNet LA, MLB Network)

Kenta Maeda struck out eight and pitched into the seventh inning against the Brewers on June 19 in Los Angeles, allowing one run. He is 10 outs away from earning a $250,000 bonus for reaching 90 innings on the season. Zach Davies has been excellent in June, at 3-0 with a 1.64 ERA in five starts, with 36 strikeouts and six walks in 33 innings, including allowing a run in seven strong innings in a no-decision at Dodger Stadium on June 17.
