What you need to know: The Dodgers return home from New York after dropping two of three games to the Mets and will face San Diego in a three game-series beginning Friday at Dodger Stadium.

A 5-3 loss on Thursday was the Dodgers second straight defeat to New York and the first time since late July, against Washington, that they lost consecutive games. Clayton Kershaw did give the Dodgers something to smile about when he rejoined the rotation from a back ailment, his first outing since Aug. 4.

Dustin May (1-1, 1.64 earned-run average) will make his third appearance since recovering from Tommy John surgery. He will face Yu Darvish (11-7, 3.41) who pitched for the Dodgers in 2017.
