Dodgers Vs. Brewers Game Preview: Clayton Kershaw, Matt Kemp Aim To Snap Two-Game Skid

The Los Angeles Dodgers have lost two straight games six different times this season, including the first two games of this four-game series against the Milwaukee Brewers. The Dodgers have yet to lose three straight games this year, and Clayton Kershaw is on the mound Wednesday night to make sure that trend continues.

Kershaw is 4-2 with a 1.97 ERA in 10 starts this season, and has pitched at least seven innings in each of his last seven starts. Unfortunately the Dodgers have averaged just 3.4 runs per game in those starts and are 4-3 despite Kershaw's 1.86 ERA in those seven outings.

Kershaw is coming off a loss Friday night against Houston in which he allowed three runs, two earned, in seven innings. He has a 1.75 ERA in seven home starts this season but has already lost twice at Dodger Stadium, which is one more defeat than last year, when he was 12-1 with a 1.69 ERA at home.

Yovani Gallardo gets the start for Milwaukee, looking for his sixth straight quality start. So far in May, Gallardo is 2-2 with a 2.59 ERA in five starts.

Matt Kemp, who was 1-for-4 with a double in his first game back from the disabled list on Tuesday, is 5-for-15 in his career against Gallardo, with two doubles.

The Dodgers are 21-7 at home this season.
