When: 7.

Where: Dodger Stadium.

On the air: Ch. 9; Radio: 790, 930.

Pitchers: Randy Wolf vs. Wandy Rodriguez. Friday, 7 p.m. -- Chad Billingsley (9-4, 3.38) vs. Roy Oswalt (5-4, 3.85). Saturday, 7 p.m. -- Clayton Kershaw (7-5, 3.16) vs. Mike Hampton (5-6, 4.52). Sunday, 1 p.m. -- Hiroki Kuroda (3-5, 4.67) vs. Russ Ortiz (3-4, 4.44).

Update: Wolf, who has 12 no-decisions, is on track to break Bert Blyleven's single-season record of 20. The veteran left-hander said he hoped his victory in New York last week would change that trend. Changing uniforms and wearing his old No. 43 for the first time as a Dodger, Wolf broke a seven-start winless streak by holding the Mets to two runs over 6 1/3 innings. Rodriguez pitched a shutout in his final first-half start, limiting Pittsburgh to five hits and a walk. He is 3-0 with a 1.86 earned-run average over his last four starts.
