The Houston Astros and Los Angeles Dodgers begin a three-game series Friday at Dodgers Stadium with the Astros looking to end Dodgers pitcher Clayton Kershaw's 22-inning scoreless streak. Kershaw has been one of the best in the game again this season, with 4-1 record and 1.90 ERA to his cred.

And the Astros have only scored twice in their last 28 outings against the reigning NL Cy Young Award winner. Something is going to have to give if Houston plans on starting this series off with a victory, which would be its fourth straight have a three-game series sweep of the Chicago Cubs, to date the league's worst team.

Lucas Harrell (3-3, 4.09 ERA) will make the start for the Astros in game 1.

Take a look at schedule for the Astros-Dodgers series:

Dates/Times: Friday, May 25, 9:10 p.m. CT

Saturday, May 26, 9:10 p.m. CT
