After taking the rubber game of a three-game series against the Arizona Diamondbacks on Sunday afternoon, the Los Angeles Dodgers will host the Philadelphia Phillies for four games at Dodger Stadium this week. The Dodgers schedule keeps the team at home in Los Angeles until next Tuesday, when they head to Minnesota to take on the Twins starting April 29.

Ticket prices will be much lower than home average for the first three games against the Phillies. The average price of a Dodgers game at Dodgers Stadium this year is $69.59, but with tickets 44% below average, fans looking to get in cheaper should take advantage when the Phillies come to town this week.

Hyun-Jin Ryu will get the nod for the Dodgers and will face A.J. Burnett in Tuesday night’s 7:10pm game. Burnett was impressive in his last start, throwing seven shutout innings and leading the Phillies to a 1-0 victory against the Atlanta Braves last Thursday. The average price for Tuesday Dodgers tickets is $48 with a get-in price of $13.

Wednesday night’s 7:10 pm game will have Zack Greinke take the mound against probable Phillie favorite Cole Hamels, making his season debut. Greinke has shined for the Dodgers this year, starting four games and going 3-0 with a 2.42 ERA. Average Wednesday Dodgers tickets will go for $26 with a get-in price of just $2.

The final game of the series will be played Thursday night at 7:10pm, with Dan Haren going for the Dodgers against the Phillies’ Kyle Kendrick. Fans in attendance will receive a Clayton KershawCy Young” bobblehead in honor of the Dodgers ace’s remarkable season last year. Average Thursday night Dodgers tickets against the Phillies will go for $71 on the secondary market, the only game of the series above regular home ticket price average, with a get-in price of $23.

The Dodgers have started the season hot and Los Angeles fans hoping to see their team will see lower-than-average ticket prices at home this week. In addition to a Kershaw bobblehead Thursday night, fans can expect Yasiel Puig and company to continue their hot early-season streak against the Phillies.
