The team with the best record in baseball returns to the friendly confines of Chavez Ravine on Thursday after a winning road trip to Washington D.C. and Denver.
The first-place Los Angeles Dodgers will return to Dodger Stadium to host the San Diego Padres, St. Louis Cardinals, and Arizona Diamondbacks during a 10-game homestand to open the month of August.
The Dodgers will have two new additions to the roster when fans see them at Dodger Stadium over the next ten days.
Jedd Gyorko and Adam Kolarek were both acquired at the MLB Trade Deadline on Wednesday. Kolarek, a left-handed reliever who is lights out against left-handed hitters was added to the 25-man roster ahead of the Padres series on Thursday.
