The Arizona portion of spring training ended for the Dodgers and Angels, with both back home for the Freeway Series beginning Sunday night in Anaheim.

Walker Buehler starts for the Dodgers in the opener, in his final spring training tuneup before taking the ball on opening day Friday against the Rockies at Coors Field in Denver.

Noah Syndergaard starts for the Angels, his first start for his new team in his new home stadium after signing a one-year, $21 million contract in November.

Joe Davis is back on the call on SportsNet LA for the Freeway Series, calling the opener in Anaheim alongside Eric Karros. The Angels broadcast is also available locally, which on Sunday is on KCOP channel 13. For folks outside of Los Angeles and Orange County, ESPN+ will simulcast one of those broadcasts.
