The Dodgers will try to translate some of their early-season home success on the road, opening up a road trip on Monday night against the Brewers at Miller Park in Milwaukee.
At Dodger Stadium this year the Dodgers are 13-2 and have averaged 5.60 runs per game. But on the road thus far the team is just 3-6, scoring just 3.44 runs per game.
The face a Brewers team with the worst record in baseball at 7-18, and that's with two straight wins and three wins in Milwaukee's last four games. That prompted the managerial change, with one old friend, Ron Roenicke, getting fired on Sunday, with another old friend, Craig Counsell, taking over as manager on Monday.
The Brewers have not won a home series this season, and are 3-10 at Miller Park, outscored 73-41 at home.
Clayton Kershaw has won all four of his career starts at Miller Park, allowing three total runs in the process. The last time he was in Milwaukee, Kershaw also did this:
Kyle Lohse is off to a rough start for the Brewers, at 1-4 with a 7.28 ERA, but the right-hander has lasted seven innings in each of his last two starts.
So far this season, only three pitchers have lasted at least seven innings against the Dodgers - Madison Bumgarner (eight), Andrew Cashner and Brandon Morrow. Opposing starting pitchers this season against the Dodgers have averaged 5.5 innings with a 5.18 ERA.
National League starting pitchers as a group in 2015 have a 3.83 ERA and have averaged 5.85 innings per start.
