The Dodgers play their first Cactus League night game of the spring (they had one in Taiwan) Friday when they travel to Peoria for a game with the San Diego Padres. Hiroki Kuroda will start for the Dodgers and will be followed by James McDonald, who already has pitched his way out of the fifth-starter competition and now is fighting to hang on to a bullpen spot. He has a 13.50 ERA in two games. The Dodgers are also taking 2007 first-round pick Chris Withrow on the trip.
