Fresh off their weekend sweep in San Francisco and their second 7-3 road trip of the season, the Los Angeles Dodgers return home to open a nine-game homestand. First up is the Arizona Diamondbacks for three games, and here is a look ahead at the pitching matchups and television schedule for the series.
Monday, 7:10 p.m. (Prime Ticket)
Aaron Harang (7-5, 3.39 ERA) gets the start in the series opener, looking to continue his July success. In four starts this month, Harang has pitched seven or more innings three times. Trevor Cahill (8-9, 3.86) gets the start for Arizona, having allowed just four runs in 13 innings against the Dodgers this season.
Tuesday, 7:10 p.m. (KCAL)
Wednesday, 12:10 p.m. (Prime Ticket)
This is where it gets tricky. The non-waiver trade deadline is Tuesday at 1 p.m. PDT, so if the Dodgers trade for Ryan Dempster or someone else this is the spot he would likely start. But if the Dodgers don't trade for any pitcher, which seems unlikely, Stephen Fife (0-0, 1.46) will make his third major league start in the afternoon finale. Josh Collmenter (3-2, 4.13) gets the call for Arizona.
