Emmet Sheehan makes his second career start in the opener and is still looking to allow his first hit. Bobby Miller makes his sixth start for the Dodgers on Saturday.
Three rookie Astros right-handers will start this weekend in Los Angeles. J.P. France starts his ninth game on Friday. Ronel Blanco makes his fourth career start Saturday (he also has pitched 16 times in relief in the majors), followed by Hunter Brown in his 17th career start on Sunday, the relative veteran of the group.
National television has exclusive broadcast rights for the final two games, with Fox showing Saturday’s game, and ESPN ‘Sunday Night Baseball” taking over for the series finale.
