The Dodgers and Guardians finish off their three-game series on a getaway Thursday afternoon at Progressive Field in Cleveland, one of only three morning starts in Los Angeles the remainder of the season.
The finale was originally scheduled for a 10:10 a.m. PT start on Thursday, but Wednesday’s game was suspended in the third inning by rain and will need to be completed first. The resumption of Wednesday’s game starts at 9:10 a.m. PT, with the regularly-scheduled game beginning 30 minutes after the completion.
The Dodgers this season have two more pre-noon start times in the Pacific time zone — Sunday against the Red Sox in Boston, and September 10 against the Nationals in Washington D.C., both starting at 10:35 a.m. PT.
The Dodgers are giving Lance Lynn an extra day of rest, which pushes him to start Friday against the Red Sox. That means Ryan Pepiot will be back up after pitching five innings in the first game of Saturday’s doubleheader at Dodger Stadium as the 27th player.
Rookie right-hander Gavin Williams starts for Cleveland, he of the 3.02 ERA in his first 11 major league starts. Williams has a 2.10 ERA in his last six starts, with 40 strikeouts in 30 innings.
