The white-hot Los Angeles Dodgers look for their seventh straight victory Tuesday night as they open a three-game series against the Milwaukee Brewers at Miller Park. The game is the first of a six-game road trip that will take the Dodgers to Milwaukee and Houston.
The Dodgers have the best record in baseball at 9-1 after beating up on the San Diego Padres and Pittsburgh Pirates, and send Chad Billingsley to the mound in Tuesday's series opener, looking for his third straight win. Billingsley has allowed one run in two starts so far this season.
Yovani Gallardo gets the start for the Brewers. He is 1-1 with a 5.91 ERA through two starts, but is coming off a win against the Cubs in which he allowed just one run in seven innings. Milwaukee (4-6) has struggled so far this season.
Matt Kemp won National League Player of the Week for the third straight week on Monday, dating back to last season, and is hitting .487 with six home runs through 10 games. The Dodgers are 34-11 in their last 45 games.
Tuesday night's 5:10 p.m. PDT game will be televised by KCAL. For more news and notes on Dodgers baseball, be sure to read True Blue LA.
