This, as they say, cannot be good. It could, however, be really, really bad.
Matt Kemp slowed down just before reaching first while running out a grounder to end the third inning Sunday, and then left the game.
Kemp has been nursing a sore hamstring and appeared to have aggravated the injury. After meeting with assistant trainer Greg Harrel near the photo well and exiting the game, Kemp slammed his glove into the dugout in frustration.
Kemp first suffered the hamstring injury May 5 in Chicago. He only pinch-hit the next day, but the Dodgers then elected to start him every game this week. Manager Don Mattingly talked as if he was convinced the hamstring was healthy.
