The Dodgers are off tomorrow. … Hiroki Kuroda pitched 3 2/3 scoreless innings, allowing one hit with two walks and six strikeouts. He now has pitched 8 2/3 innings without allowing a run this spring. With all due respect to Chad Billingsley, who has a stellar ERA (1.29) himself this spring, Kuroda is making an strong (and possibly undeniable) bid to be the Dodgers’ opening-day starter, an assignment that still would line Billingsley up for the home opener. … The Dodgers are off tomorrow. … Tanyon Sturtze, who seemed headed for retirement when the Dodgers released him in August and really was signed this winter to give him one last shot, might have pitched himself into contention for a bullpen spot this spring. He pitched a perfect seventh inning, with one strikeout, and has a 2.70 ERA in four appearances. … Matt Kemp hit his second home run of the spring. Brad Ausmus went 2 for 3 with a double. James Loney went 2 for 2 with two singles. Juan Pierre had a triple. Danny Ardoin doubled in his only at-bat. … Dodgers improve to 7-6 after lighting up Brandon Webb — lighting him up by Brandon Webb standards, anyway — for three runs on four hits over the first three innings. … Did I mention the Dodgers are off tomorrow? See ya Thursday.
