Hiroki Kuroda (7-5, 3.27) vs. Edwin Jackson (5-6, 4.63).
COMMENTS: Oh sure, Edwin Jackson, you think you're hot stuff coming off of your no-hitter last outing. You may have had a couple of extra days rest since that start, but after 149 pitches (and eight walks), we know you're tired and still sore. And might I remind you, we've got swagger too, coming off of a sweep of the Giants, fueled by Rafael Furcal (five straight multi-hit games) and the potential rebirth of Matt Kemp (who homered in his last game after being benched for most of the series). And did we mention that James Loney is 7-for-14 at Chase Field this year, the highest batting average of any opposing hitter? Well, now we did. You see, it is the Dodgers who are on fire. And we predict the snakes will be burning, man.
