What you need to know: The Dodgers open the second half of the season with a four-game series against the San Francisco Giants at Dodger Stadium, starting Thursday.

Right-hander Mitch White will start Thursday for the Dodgers against Giants left-hander Carlos Rodon. White is 1-2 with a 4.20 earned-run average, and Rodon is 8-5 with an ERA of 2.66. Rodon has started 18 games and has 131 strikeouts in 105 1/3 innings.

The Dodgers have the best record in the National League at 60-30 (.667) and lead the third-place Giants (48-43, .527) in the National League West by 12½ games.

Dodger Stadium concession workers could go on strike in advance of next week’s MLB All-Star Game, the union representing those workers said Monday.

One year ago, San Francisco was in first place in the division with a two-game lead over the Dodgers.

The Giants went into the All-Star break winning seven of nine games. The team recently put shortstop Brandon Crawford on the injured list with an inflamed left knee.
