Dodgers Have Been Stingy At Home

Clayton Kershaw and the Dodgers' pitching staff have been remarkably stingy at home this season.

The Dodgers look to continue their home success Monday night as they open a quick two-game series against the Arizona Diamondbacks. The Dodgers have swept four of their six opponents at home this year, which has led to a 15-3 record at Dodger Stadium.

A big part of that success has been extreme run prevention. Here are the runs allowed by the Dodgers in each of the six three-game series so far at Dodger Stadium:

That's 46 runs allowed in 18 home games, an average of just 2.56 runs per game. The Dodgers have scored 86 runs at Dodger Stadium, or 4.78 runs per game.

Dodgers starting pitching has been magnificent at home, averaging 6.56 innings per start with a 2.29 ERA and 92 strikeouts in 118 innings, with just 29 unintentional walks. The five runs allowed by Ted Lilly on Sunday marked just the fourth time this season that a Dodger starter allowed more than two runs. Dodger starters have pitched at least six innings in 15 of 18 home games this season.

Clayton Kershaw looks to continue that run of great starting pitching on Monday night, looking to rebound from suffering the only Dodgers loss last week. Kershaw allowed just two runs in eight innings to the Giants but took the defeat.

That snapped a 12-game home winning streak for Kershaw, who has allowed two runs or less in 45 of his 64 career starts at Dodger Stadium. Since the beginning of last season Kershaw is 13-2 at home with a 1.85 ERA in 20 starts. The Dodgers are 16-4 in those games.

Fellow 21-game winner and former USC Trojan Ian Kennedy starts for the Diamondbacks on Monday, and is 1-1 in three career starts at Dodger Stadium with a 6.06 ERA.
