CINCINNATI - Manager Don Mattingly wouldn't say when Clayton Kershaw could pitch again, but didn't rule out a return on Sunday for the Dodgers' series finale against the Cincinnati Reds. Kershaw, who missed his last start with a right hip injury, threw a 20-pitch bullpen session on Friday at Great American Ball Park. “We'll see what happens tomorrow,” Mattingly said. Aaron Harang is currently scheduled to pitch on Sunday on three days' rest. Harang last pitched on short rest in 2008.

Hanley Ramirez was walking around the Dodgers clubhouse before Sunday's game with lighted incense, almost like Pedro Cerrano in the “Major League” movies trying a little voodoo to turn things around. The problem with Ramirez is his sore thumb, not hitting a curveball. And the Dodgers, uncertain how quickly he will r espond from Saturday's injury and how it might affect his throwing, called up infielder Carlos Truinfel on Sunday and optioned reliever Jose Dominguez back to triple-A Albuquerque.

SAN DIEGO -- Clayton Kershaw must have been spending too much time around Andre Ethier. Ethier missed Saturday's Freeway Series game against the Angels with a stomach bug, and it apparently made its way to Clayton Kershaw. Kershaw started the season opener for the Dodgers on Thursday, despite battling the flu. After three innings, however, the flu won and Kershaw left the game against the Padres. Kershaw did not give up a run in his three innings, walking one and striking out one. He also had the Dodgers' first single, so at least he left with a perfect ERA and batting average.

Hanley Ramirez was smiling Sunday. Clayton Kershaw wasn't. Whereas Ramirez was able to pinch-hit a day after he bruised his surgically repaired right thumb, Kershaw was informed by the Dodgers he would pitch in another minor league game before making his return from the disabled list. Asked whether he was fine with the team's decision, Kershaw replied, "Not really. " Sidelined because of a strained back muscle, Kershaw hasn't pitched for the Dodgers since the their season opener in Australia on March 22. Kershaw wanted to pitch for the Dodgers on Wednesday in Minnesota.

For the first time in his career, Clayton Kershaw is on the disabled list. Kershaw would have started the Dodgers' home opener Friday. Instead, Hyun-jin Ryu will start that game -- his third start in the Dodgers' first six games. Dodgers Manager Don Mattingly said Kershaw experienced discomfort on the last of his 27 throws as he played catch Saturday. The Dodgers already had scratched Kershaw from his scheduled Sunday start because of what the team said was inflammation in his upper back, and they put him on the disabled list immediately after he reported the discomfort Saturday.

The silence in the Dodgers' dressing quarters was pierced by an expletive. For the second consecutive night, the Dodgers fell to the Atlanta Braves in extra innings at Dodger Stadium, this time by a 2-1 score in 10 innings. The Dodgers, who were nine games up in the National League West as recently as July 25, had their lead over the second-place San Francisco Giants reduced to 5 1/2 games after their ninth loss in 14 games. The last time the Dodgers led by as few games was on May 14. There was more.

Clayton Kershaw likes to win. He's absolutely used to winning, as his two Cy Young awards attest. Yet he lost one battle Sunday, without ever taking the mound. The Dodgers brought down the hammer, telling Kershaw that despite his campaigning otherwise , he will make another rehab start before rejoining the rotation. And don't think for a moment the competitive Kershaw was happy about it. “Not really, but I did the best I could,” Kershaw said. “But I'm not going to fight the team if everybody doesn't want me to do something.

There it is. What, just taking a little nap? Slipped into one of those cyclical down modes? The Dodgers offense has been something of a stop-and-start proposition this season, lately with too many stops. The Dodgers went into Wednesday having averaged fewer than two runs in seven of their last eight games (the eighth was an 8-6 win over the Diamondbacks). Among the major leagues' 30 teams they were 15th in slugging percentage (.386), 16th in runs, 24th in batting average (.235)

Progress sometimes may come in small increments, but it still makes for progress. And the good news is that Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw is making progress. Kershaw has been on the disabled list since March 30 because of a strain on a back muscle. Kershaw has been on a throwing program since suffering the injury, apparently in his Australia start, but Sunday he is scheduled to face hitters in a simulated game. “That's good news, that he's going in the right direction,” Manager Don Mattingly said.

Maybe the numbers seem slightly arbitrary, but that doesn't mean they aren't impressive. Zach Greinke is on some kind of roll and has been now for 16 regular season starts. He went six strong innings Friday night, holding the Diamondbacks to a Miguel Montero solo home run and two other hits. In each of those 16 consecutive starts he has pitched at least five innings without giving up more than two runs. That's the longest such streak since 1914, or as far back as the Dodgers can check.
