The Dodgers welcome the White Sox to town for a brief two-game series beginning Tuesday night at Dodger Stadium, the reciprocal interleague visit to their two games in Chicago on July 18-19.
Here is a look at the schedule and pitching matchups for this series in Los Angeles, the culmination of a five-game homestand for the Dodgers.
Tuesday, 7:10 p.m. PT (SportsNet LA, MLB Network)
Alex Wood has allowed three runs in 12 innings over his two August starts, both wins. Since the All-Star break, Wood’s ground ball rate is 45.9 percent in five starts compared to 63.5 percent in 80⅔ innings before the midsummer classic.
Miguel Gonzalez, a San Fernando High School grad, had one bad start in his last five — allowing seven runs while recording five outs — but also has four quality starts during that span, including allowing one run in eight innings to beat the Astros last Wednesday.
Wednesday, 7:10 p.m. (SportsNet LA)
Yu Darvish, with two wins and 20 strikeouts under his belt in his first two starts with the Dodgers, makes his Dodger Stadium debut on Wednesday night. The right-hander hasn’t faced the White Sox since 2013.
Carlos Rodon, the third overall pick in the 2014 draft, has 24 strikeouts and just two walks in his last three starts. The southpaw has totaled 22⅓ innings during that span, including at least 6⅔ innings in all three starts, with no more than two runs allowed in any of the three outings.
