Hiroki Kuroda has made three starts against the Cardinals and his ERA is on the wrong trend. 0 runs, 1 run, then 2 runs.  Then again I'll take a three in his fourth game if he can go seven.

Nice mastery over a good lineup, for our second best pitcher.

Dodger Notes:

  • Last year, both clubs protected their home turf with the Dodgers winning all three games in Los Angeles and the Cardinals sweeping a four-game set in St. Louis.
  • Kuroda has walked just two batters in 15.2 innings this season and the Dodgers’ starting rotation is averaging just 2.31 walks per 9.0 innings thus far (18 BB/17.0 IP), which is the second-lowest mark in the NL (Source: Stats, LLC).
  • Kuroda ranks 11th in the National League with a 1.72 ERA through his first two starts, including finishing an out shy of his third-career shutout on Saturday at San Diego.
  • Dodger center fielder Matt Kemp continues to lead the Majors with a .531 on-base percentage and seven steals. Kemp also ranks fourth in the big leagues with a .425 batting average (17-for-40).
  • The Dodgers are tied with the Padres for the National League lead and rank second in the Majors behind the Kansas City Royals (15) with 13 steals.
  • The Dodgers have made just five errors on the season, tying for the second-fewest miscues in baseball. In the National League, only the Brewers and Phillies (4) have fewer errors. Los Angeles has not committed an error in five straight contests and seven of their last eight. Last season, the club’s longest errorless streak was eight games, accomplished twice, most recently from Sept. 25-Oct. 3, 2010.
