Dodger Stadium, 1 p.m.

TV--Fox Sports West 2. Radio--AM 1150, KWKW (1330).

* Update--Martinez would rather not pitch against Astacio, his longtime friend and former teammate, and Astacio isn’t eager to oppose Martinez, whom he considers his big brother and mentor. “I know it’s going to be tough, it’s almost the same thing like when I pitched against my brother [Pedro in Montreal on Aug. 29, 1996],” Martinez said. “But we’re on different teams, and we have jobs to do. I told him the same thing that I told my brother, ‘You have to try to do your best, and I have to do the same thing.’ ” Astacio understands. “I just have to pitch my regular game,” Astacio said. “He’s my best friend, but you have to do your job.”
