The Dodgers go for the sweep of the Diamondbacks with Walker Buehler on the mound in the series finale on Wednesday afternoon at Dodger Stadium, the second consecutive weekday with a day game in Los Angeles.

That doesn’t happen often.

Speaking of rarities, the Dodgers have swept the D-backs in a four-game series at Dodger Stadium only one other time. That came almost exactly one year ago, from May 17-20.

As expected, Ryan Pepiot was returned to Triple-A after serving as the 27th man Wednesday, starting the first game of the doubleheader.
