The Dodgers conclude their National League West homestand with three games against the Diamondbacks, beginning with a Labor Day affair against an old friend. Here is a look at the schedule and pitching matchups for the three-game series at Dodger Stadium.
Monday, 5:10 p.m. PT (SportsNet LA)
Kenta Maeda has a 3.68 ERA in four starts against the Diamondbacks in 2016, with 20 strikeouts and three walks in 22 innings, including two quality starts and two total runs allowed in two starts against them at home.
Zack Greinke is 29-5 in 47 career starts at Dodger Stadium, and his 2.00 ERA at Chavez Ravine is second all-time among all pitchers with at least 200 innings there, trailing only Sandy Koufax (1.37).
Tuesday, 7:10 p.m. (SportsNet LA)
Ross Stripling has allowed exactly three runs in each of his last three starts, and has allowed three or fewer runs in nine of his 13 starts this season.
Shelby Miller did well in his return from the minors, allowing just two runs in six innings at San Francisco last Wednesday. But because Miller has been snakebit this season, he suffered the loss.
Wednesday, 7:10 p.m. (SportsNet LA)
Brock Stewart gets the spot start in the series finale, which allows the Dodgers to reset their rotation with the return of Clayton Kershaw on Friday, getting ready for the playoffs with a Kershaw-Hill-Maeda trio. Stewart at Dodger Stadium this season has allowed one run in eight innings, with 10 strikeouts and six walks.
Robbie Ray has a 3.81 ERA and a 31-percent strikeout rate in nine starts since the All-Star break, after a 4.41 ERA and 26-percent strikeout rate before the break. He is the lone left-handed starter the Dodgers are scheduled to face in this series.
