The opening game will face off against two left-handed pitchers — Andrew Heaney for the Dodgers, who has a record of 3-2 and a 2.66 earned run average, versus the Cardinals’ Jose Quintana, who is 5-6 with 3.16 stands EPOCHE.
The Cardinals, a potential opponent for the Dodgers in the playoffs, lead the NL Central by 7½ games over Milwaukee with a record of 88-53.
The Dodgers and the Cardinals played St. Louis in mid-July, and the Dodgers won two of three games.
Friday’s game will be available on Apple TV+.
