The Dodgers go for for their first road sweep of the season Sunday against the Diamondbacks. They send Clayton Kershaw to the mound in the series finale, looking to build on his NL Pitcher of the Month award from July.
Kershaw has won five straight starts, including in Phoenix on July 15. The last Dodger to win at least six straight starts was Kevin Brown, who won seven straight in May and June 2003. Kershaw has won both starts against Arizona this season and has yet to allow an earned run, though he did allow four unearned runs at Chase Field 23 days ago. In those two starts against the D-Backs, Kershaw has four walks and 19 strikeouts in 14 innings.
Ian Kennedy is 2-0 in two starts against the Dodgers this season, allowing three total runs in 13 innings.
Dee Gordon and his shoulder are out of today's starting lineup.
