Dodgers Vs. Pirates: Game Times, Pitching Probables, TV Info

The Los Angeles Dodgers opened their 10-game road trip with a weekend series win in Miami against the Marlins, and now move on to Pittsburgh for four games against the Pirates at PNC Park. Here is a look at the series schedule and probable pitching matchups against the team leading the race for the second wild card.

Monday, 4:05 p.m. PDT (Prime Ticket)

Aaron Harang (7-7 3.80 ERA) gets the call for the Dodgers in the series opener, facing Jeff Karstens (4-2, 3.77) for Pittsburgh.

Tuesday, 4:05 p.m. PDT (KCAL)

Chad Billingsley (8-9, 3.84) looks to win a fifth straight start for the first time in his career, while Kevin Correia (9-6, 4.49) gets a second spot start as the Pirates continue temporarily with a six-man rotation.

Wednesday, 4:05 p.m. PDT (KCAL)

After allowing just three runs in his last three starts, Clayton Kershaw (10-6, 2.88) looks for a fourth straight win in the third game of the series. Left-hander Wandy Rodriguez (7-11, 3.91) starts for the Pirates, looking for his first win in four starts with Pittsburgh.

Thursday, 1:05 p.m. PDT (Prime Ticket)

Joe Blanton (8-10, 4.61) makes his third start as a Dodger, searching for his first win. Old friend James McDonald (10-5, 3.77), who was absolutely stolen by the Pirates from the Dodgers at the trade deadline in 2010 (for reliever Octavio Dotel), looks to regain his first half form in the series finale, at an odd 4:05 p.m. local start time.
