The Los Angeles Angels vs. The Los Angeles Dodgers
June 26-29 1/2 Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles California, 1/2 Angels Stadium in Anaheim California
The Los Angeles Dodgers were just two games from going to the World Series last season. The National League West Champions lost to the World Series Champion Chicago Cubs in a fantastic NL Championship Series 4-2.
LAD will look to pick up where they left off last season. The Dodgers retained pitcher Scott Kazmir who chose to not opt out of his contract. They also got younger trading former Angel Howie Kendrick to the Philadelphia Phillies for Darin Ruf and Darnell Sweeney.
Los Angeles beefed up their pitching staff signing Rich Hill and Kenley Jansen to multiyear contracts. The Dodgers will be a formidable foe once again this season. Coming so close to a World Series birth last season, look for the Dodgers to tip-toe to the NL Championship Series once again.
