The Los Angeles Dodgers continue their homestand Friday night as they host the Chicago White Sox for a three-game weekend series at Dodger Stadium. The Dodgers thus far this season are 3-3 in interleague play, and just lost two of three games at home to the Angels.

Clayton Kershaw gets the start for the Dodgers, looking for his sixth win of the season. Chris Sale gets the call for the White Sox, looking for his ninth win of the season. Sale has won his last five starts, allowing four total runs during that span.

White Sox manager Robin Ventura returns to Dodger Stadium, eight years after ending his playing career as a Dodger. The Dodgers won the National League West in 2004, and Ventura has fond memories of that season. "'04 was a great year, having grown up a Dodger fan and coming to games here as a kid. Playing here was just special."

Here are Friday's starting lineups, which include former Dodger second baseman Orlando Hudson playing third base for the White Sox:

White Sox (34-29)
