Hiroki Kuroda (7-6, 3.86) vs. Livan Hernandez (8-11, 5.22).
DODGERS' MAGIC NUMBERS: 4 (playoffs), 7 (division)
COMMENTS: Irie! Lively up yourself as the Dodgers get ready to roll the Nattys like a big fattie. Kuroda continues to shake off the effects of that nasty knock to the noggin and whip himself into playoff shape while Hernandez, released by the Mets last month, is finding a home with the bottom-feedingest group of rude boys in the majors. As for the Rockies? The harder they come, the harder they fall. What I say now!
