The Dodgers return home after a disappointing 3-3 road trip and look to end the first half of the season on the right track. The homestand starts on a sour note as Clayton Kershaw was placed on the injured list, as was widely expected. In his place, the Dodgers turn to Michael Grove once again who has been recalled from Triple-A.
The Pirates counter with right-hander Mitch Keller (9-3, 3.34 ERA) who has been their best pitcher so far this season.

The Dodgers go with the best they have at the moment. Mookie Betts is back out in right field. Will Smith catches after a game off. Max Muncy starts at third and bats cleanup. One name missing is James Outman who will open the night on the bench as Jason Heyward gets the start in center field.

Michael Grove is back and will look to give the Dodgers more than he’s been giving them all season long. He posted a 6.86 ERA in 5 games (3 starts) in June.
Mitch Keller is in the midst of the best season of his career thus far and was rewarded with an All-Star berth. He has, however, struggled against the Dodgers in the past, posting a 5.27 ERA in 3 starts.
