The Los Angeles Dodgers look to snap their three-game losing streak as they conclude their 10-game road trip with a weekend series against the San Francisco Giants. Here is a look at the weekend pitching matchups and broadcast television schedule.
Friday, 7:15 p.m. PDT (Prime Ticket)
The Dodgers have been able to avoid Matt Cain in their first two series against the Giants, but cannot do so in the third series, facing Cain (10-3, 2.74 ERA) in the opener Friday night at AT&T Park. The Dodgers haven't yet announced their starter, in place of new Marlins hurler Nathan Eovaldi, but all signs point to Stephen Fife getting the call in the opener. Fife (0-0, 1.50) would be making his second big league start.
Saturday, 1:05 p.m. (Fox)
Chad Billingsley (5-9, 4.15) makes his second start since returning from the disabled list, facing off with Barry Zito (8-6, 3.75). Both pitchers are making their third start against the other team this season.
Sunday, 1:05 p.m. (Prime Ticket)
Clayton Kershaw (7-6, 3.14) saw the wheels fall off on Tuesday in St. Louis, allowing eight runs for just the second time in his career. He looks to get back on track against the Giants, facing Ryan Vogelsong (8-4, 2.26) for the third time this season. Kershaw has allowed just four total runs in 14 innings against San Francisco this season, but took the loss in both games.
The Dodgers are three games behind the Giants in the National League West.
