It's time to save Matt Kemp from himself. I'm convinced that somebody has to, for his and the team's sake. He needs to go on the disabled list and get that hamstring completely healthy. Sacrifice a couple weeks to avoid the possibility of losing him for a couple months. "I'm definitely not going on the DL; that's not going to happen," Kemp said. "The team needs me. I don't think this is a 15-day thing. It's maybe one, two, three days. It's not something that I need to go on the DL for. " Kemp wants to play, and that's great.

News flash: This Clayton Kershaw kid of the Dodgers just might have a future. Kershaw appeared ready to start the season Wednesday night in Goodyear, Ariz., shutting out the Reds in his four innings of a 9-1 exhibition victory. Kershaw allowed just one hit, two walks and struck out six. In just his second outing of the spring, he became the first Dodger to throw four innings. In seven innings overall, the reigning National League Cy Young winner has not allowed a run. Meanwhile, despite bringing only three projected starters - Juan Uribe, Mark Ellis and A.J. Ellis - to Goodyear, the Dodgers jumped all over Reds starter Homer Bailey.

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — Clayton Kershaw's only solace was that the game didn't count. Kershaw was visibly displeased with how he pitched in an abbreviated start Saturday that counted as his final tuneup for the regular season. "Hopefully, all the bad ones are out of my system," said Kershaw, who will take the ball for the Dodgers in their April 5 opener in San Diego. Pitching the first 32/3 innings of a 9-3 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks, Kershaw was charged with three runs, six hits and a walk.

At one point during the Dodgers' 8-2 victory over the San Diego Padres on Sunday, a fan at Petco Park shouted at Matt Kemp . "Braun got two hits!" the fan alerted him. "Braun got two hits!" The fan was referring to Ryan Braun of the Milwaukee Brewers, whom Kemp is pursuing in the race for the National League batting title. "I just started laughing," Kemp said. "Shoot, he's actually one of my favorite players. " Kemp's triple-crown ambitions took a significant hit on this day, as Braun raised his average to .333 while Kemp was one for five, dropping his to .325.

The malaise that is this Dodgers season reached its 100th game Saturday night and appeared set to take further hold after only a half inning. Dodgers starter Ted Lilly had given up two singles, two doubles and three runs to the Washington Nationals before many fans had found their seats at Dodger Stadium. But on this night, the Dodgers and Lilly -- who slugged a two-run double and had three runs batted in overall to help his cause -- declined to go quietly and made a game of it. Shortstop Rafael Furcal, who has struggled at the plate since returning from the disabled list July 3, hit a walk-off double against Washington reliever Ryan Mattheus to score Trent Oeltjen in the bottom of the ninth inning and give the Dodgers a 7-6 win. That was "was a huge hit for him," Dodgers Manager Don Mattingly said.

The so-called Four Corners Trip has been a two-week joyride for the Angels. The baseball equivalent of the four-corners offense continues to be a season-long struggle for the Dodgers. The Dodgers' offense stalled again Saturday at Dodger Stadium during a 6-1 loss to the Angels, moving the ball around without much purpose during a third consecutive defeat. Of course, it's hard to muster much of an attack when your offensive sparkplug is out for half the game. Center fielder Matt Kemp was ejected in the bottom of the fifth inning after arguing a borderline called third strike from the dugout.

Reporting from Denver The Jerry Sands Project has been put on hold. Still appearing clueless as to what they should do in left field, the Dodgers sent their top hitting prospect back to the minor leagues and promoted Australian outfielder Trent Oeltjen from triple-A Albuquerque. Of the situation in left field, Manager Don Mattingly said, "It hasn't really panned out. " In the Dodgers' 63 games through Wednesday, their left fielders had hit .216 with two home runs and 16 runs batted in. They have started six players at the position.

Andre Ethier was out of the lineup because of an infected toe. Tony Gwynn Jr. was leading off. Justin Sellers was batting second, Aaron Miles third. The Dodgers team that took the field Friday night at Coors Field looked like a spring training split squad. "This has kind of been our club, to be honest with you," Manager Don Mattingly said. He broke into a light laugh. But what figured to be the latest lowlight for the downtrodden Dodgers turned out to be a resounding triumph.

You had to see it to believe it. But you couldn't see it. The game wasn't televised. So take our word that the events about to be described actually took place. The final result was nothing out of the ordinary: the Dodgers fell to the Colorado Rockies, 7-6, in 13 innings. But this was no ordinary defeat. Aaron Miles, who is listed at 5 feet 8 in the Dodgers media guide, ended a 12th-inning stalemate by sending a ball at least 10 rows up the left-field stands.

He was talking about James Loney, and how much the Dodgers need for him to be the hitter he was in the second half. You know, the usual. But then Don Mattingly strayed ever so slightly, broadening his expectations, and that's when his comment to Orange County columnist Mark Whicker got interesting. "The guy we had at the end is the guy we are going to need,” Mattingly said. "But then we needAndre [Ethier] to be healthy, we need Juan to be a run producer, more of a 80-90 RBI guy. We're going to need all that for us to be in it.” At first I thought: "He's actually expecting Juan Uribe to hit up to 90 runs batted in?"

Nine batters and 41 pitches later, the Dodgers were down five runs. A game that had just started was essentially over. The Dodgers could never climb out of the first-inning hole Nathan Eovaldi put them in Sunday afternoon at Dodger Stadium and lost, 7-6, to the Colorado Rockies. With the tying run on second base in the seventh inning, second baseman Jamey Carroll grounded out. The Dodgers' next six batters went down in order, and the team's winning streak was over at five games.

Jered Weaver downplayed the speculation a week and a half ago when reporters compared his statistics with other American League pitchers, mapped out the Angels' rotation and surmised he was a leading candidate to start the July 12 All-Star game in Phoenix. "Oh God," Weaver said June 22, "I think we're a little ways away from that. " Not anymore. In giving up one run and four hits in eight innings of a 7-1 interleague victory over the Dodgers in Angel Stadium on Saturday night, Weaver may have solidified his first All-Star game start.
