Nola is 2-0 with a 2.57 ERA in his last three starts after going 0-2 with a 7.04 ERA in his first three outings. He was outstanding in beating the Astros last Friday in Houston as he allowed one run and three hits in eight innings while striking out six and walking none.

Stone is a 24-year-old right-hander who was the Dodgers’ fifth-round draft pick in 2020 from the University of Central Arkansas. He went 2-2 with a 4.74 ERA in six starts for Oklahoma City this year and has a 13-10 career record in the minor leagues and a 2.69 ERA in 55 games (53 starts) over three seasons.
