The Dodgers play the San Francisco Giants at home - with no real fans due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Recently, Kershaw came out in support of 'Black Lives Matter' in a video with other Dodgers players.

The game today will be the first of 40 divisional games against the Giants, Padres and Rockies and Diamondbacks, according to the emailed LA Dodgers press release.

The Dodgers will also close the season on Sept. 27 against the Angels at Dodger Stadium.

There will be three exhibition games on July 19, July 20 and July 21.
