The Dodgers make their first trip to Cleveland since 2003 in starting up an interleague series with the Indians on Tuesday night. Here is a look at the pitching schedule for the three-game series.

Tuesday, 4:10 p.m. PT (SportsNet LA, Twitter)

Clayton Kershaw has faced the Indians just once — a no-decision at home, in 2008, his sixth career start — but has never pitched in Cleveland. Progressive Field will be his 27th career ballpark.

Former UCLA star Trevor Bauer has faced the Dodgers twice in his career, picking up his first major league win with the Diamondbacks in 2012 and earning a no-decision at Dodger Stadium in 2014 with Cleveland.

Wednesday, 4:10 p.m. (SportsNet LA, MLB Network)

Brandon McCarthy has allowed five total runs in his last four starts, with a 1.96 ERA, 21 strikeouts and five walks in 23 innings. But he is also 2-2 during that span thanks to one total run scored by the Dodgers in his last two starts.

Corey Kluber missed a month with a lower back strain, but since returning from the disabled list has 18 strikeouts in 12 innings, winning both of his starts with a 1.50 ERA.

Thursday, 9:10 a.m. (SportsNet LA, MLB Network)

Rich Hill has allowed one run in five innings in four of his seven starts this season. Josh Tomlin has 44 strikeouts against only four walks this season, but also has a 5.73 ERA in 12 starts, with opposing hitters .314/.326/.487 against him.
