Dodgers: Weekend TV and streaming options, lineups vs San Francisco Giants
The Dodgers are set to play two games on national television this weekend.
After winning the first two games against their rival San Francisco Giants, the Los Angeles Dodgers will go for the four-game sweep on Saturday and Sunday while being featured on national television.
If you’re anxious to see the Dodgers in action, here’s everything you need to know for your weekend plans.
What channel are the Dodgers on?
Saturday 1:00 PM FOX: San Francisco Giants at Los Angeles Dodgers
On Saturday, the Dodgers will be the 1:00 PM PT game of a rare Fox quadruple-header with SportsNet LA’s Joe Davis doing the play-by-play alongside AJ Pierzynski—we’ll miss you Orel.
Sunday 7:08 PM ESPN: San Francisco Giants at Los Angeles Dodgers
On Sunday, the Dodgers will be featured on ESPN’s Sunday Night Baseball broadcast at 7:08 PM PT after the Braves take on the Mets at 4:08 PM PT. Hopefully, the Worldwide Leader puts on a better performance than they did on opening night when they missed the first batter of the game and found different ways to effectively annoy Dodger fans throughout the broadcast.
Where can I stream the Dodgers game?
Fans looking to stream Saturday or Sunday’s game, can look for a live Reddit stream.
The Sunday night game will also be available on the ESPN Watch App, however you will need a subscription to access it.
Since both games are national telecasts, they will also be available via any streaming service that offers Fox and ESPN.
What is the Dodgers lineup?
We will update this section as information becomes available.
For Saturday, the lineup has been announced by manager Dave Roberts. Since the Dodgers are facing a right-handed starter in Logan Webb, Max Muncy will move back to the lead-off spot, where he batted on opening night. Returning to the two-hole against a left-hander on Friday, Muncy connected on two home runs. However, the Dodgers seem committed to adjusting the order to stagger righties and lefties based on the opposing starting pitcher.
With Muncy leading off, Mookie Betts will bat second, Justin Turner will drop to fourth, and Cody Bellinger will bat third.
Chris Taylor will start at DH after colliding with Pablo Sandoval on Friday. Roberts said Taylor texted him on Saturday morning that he was feeling good, but it still made sense to give him a partial day off.
Kiké Hernandez gets the start at second base. And Joc Pederson will play in left-field. Austin Barnes will catch left-hander Alex Wood.
