Los Angeles Dodgers (76-58) @ San Diego Padres (62-70)
Game 1. Friday, 7:10PM. Sports Net LA.
For all of the hand-wringing over Haren's five-game losing streak, he has 11 wins and 150 innings as the fifth starter after beating the Mets.vs.
Cashner returned to the rotation on Aug. 23 after missing 51 games with soreness in his right shoulder, allowing two runs in five innings in a no-decision against the D-backs. His command wasn't where he wanted it, especially early in the game.
Game 2. Saturday, 5:40PM. Sports Net LA.
He hit some bats, but Greinke's elbow held up for 6 2/3 innings against the Mets. He's been wearing a compression sleeve, so the issue remains.vs.
Kennedy defeated his former team, the D-backs, his last time out. He has allowed at least three earned runs in each of his last three starts as he shakes the residual effects of an oblique injury earlier this month. Still, he's been very durable.
Game 3. Sunday, 1:10PM. Sports Net LA.
Stults' August streak of four consecutive starts with two or fewer earned runs allowed ended his last time out, vs. Milwaukee, though this month has been his best (2.43 ERA). In his last start vs. the Dodgers, he allowed one run in five innings.
