Kershaw and Ryu Set For Sydney Starts

As called out by Orel three days ago, Clayton Kershaw and Hyun-Jin Ryu will get the call to start for the upcoming two games in Australia:

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Clayton Kershaw and Hyun-Jin Ryu will be the Dodgers' starting pitchers in their two-game season-opening series in Australia against the Arizona Diamondbacks.

The games will be played March 22-23 at Sydney Cricket Ground.

Kershaw will be making his fourth straight season-opening start for Los Angeles, becoming the first Dodgers pitcher since Ramón Martínez from 1995-98 to earn the nod four consecutive seasons.

Manager Don Mattingly made the announcement Sunday after weeks of speculation about who would start in Australia.

Meanwhile, the Diamondbacks are going with Patrick Corbin and Trevor Cahill as their starters in Sydney.

Zach Grienke, meanwhile, will be forced to sit through every Crocodile Dundee and Yahoo Serious movie while eating vegemite sandwiches until he's learned his lesson

While Greinke will be idle, Kershaw and Ryu will be Men At Work
