Hiroki Kuroda takes the mound tonight for the Dodgers, hoping to rebound off a subpar outing and extend LA’s winning streak to four. Hoping to do just the opposite is Oakland righthander Trevor Cahill, a 21-year-old with outstanding stuff. Typically, the Dodgers do well against these types of guys. And don’t look now, but Matt Kemp is hitting the cover off the ball, OPSing .873 with 14 stolen bases.
With a win, the Dodgers would move to 44-22, a .667 winning percentage (meaning they literally win two out of every three games they play.)
