Ryu, Kershaw to start 2 games in Australia

Clayton Kershaw and Ryu Hyun-jin will be the Los Angeles 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.

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

Ryu got the start in Game 2 because of an injury to Zack Greinke, who strained his right calf while throwing four pitches in his only spring appearance on Feb. 27 against Arizona.
