Hiroki Kuroda (5-4, 3.30) vs. Aaron Harang (5-5, 5.17).
COMMENTS: Dodgers swept by Angels, Lakers lacquered by the Celtics...not a great weekend for the L.A. sports fan. But there's a ray of hope for the once-again-second-place Dodgers as they head to Cincinnati: They traditionally play the Reds well, going 5-1 against them last year.
But this is an improving Reds team, one in first place, in fact. For that, they can point to the help they got from the Dodgers' recent sweep of the Cards. So how about some payback, Cincinnati? L.A. sports fans could use it.
(from Sax): We'll have a separate thread for the Lakers game this evening, so FOCUS on getting us back on track at the Great American Ballpark. We're only a half-game back here, but now we're tied with the Giants for second place! Let's go, Blue!
