The Dodgers conclude their week-long homestand with three weekend games against the Diamondbacks. Here is a look at the schedule for the series and the probable starting pitching matchups for the series at Dodger Stadium.

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

Kenta Maeda has a 4.02 ERA in three starts against the Diamondbacks, though he has allowed more runs and been removed earlier in each successive appearance against them. He went from six scoreless innings at home on April 12 to allowing three runs in 5⅓ innings on June 14 and five runs in 4⅓ innings on July 17, the latter two in Phoenix. Jake Lamb has been his biggest tormentor, going 5-for-7 (.714) with two doubles, a home run and a walk against Maeda.

Since rejoining the starting rotation this month, Zack Godley has a 6.89 ERA in three starts, allowing 13 runs (12 earned) on 24 hits in 15⅔ innings, with 12 strikeouts and six walks.

Saturday, 6:10 p.m. (SportsNet LA)

Dodgers vs. Diamondbacks

Scott Kazmir has a 3.00 ERA in four starts in July, with 26 strikeouts and only three walks in 21 innings, and a 30.2-percent strikeout rate. The Dodgers have won all four starts.

Braden Shipley makes his second major league start after allowing six runs, including three home runs, in 5⅓ innings in his major league debut on Sunday in Milwaukee. The right-hander, drafted by Arizona in the first round in 2013, had a 3.70 ERA in 19 starts with Triple-A Reno this season, with 77 strikeouts and 22 walks in 119⅓ innings.

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

Since joining the Dodgers, Bud Norris has a 1.56 ERA in three home starts, with 19 strikeouts and five walks, with one home run allowed. In three road appearances, including two starts, Norris has a 8.74 ERA in 11⅓ innings, with 13 strikeouts and two walks, and four home runs allowed.

Patrick Corbin last earned a win on June 21. In six starts since, the left-hander has failed to complete six innings, putting up a 7.45 ERA during that span, allowing 33 runs (24 earned) on 39 hits in 29 innings, with 24 strikeouts, 20 walks and seven home runs allowed.
