Dodgers Vs. Cubs: Kuroda Tries To Win Series At Wrigley

The Los Angeles Dodgers look to win their series against the Chicago Cubs with Sunday's finale at Wrigley Field. Hiroki Kuroda gets the start on the mound for the Dodgers, looking to get some support from the offense that has scored 20 runs in the first two games of this series. Carlos Zambrano takes the hill for Chicago.

The Dodgers came into this series in Chicago averaging just 3.4 runs per game, scoring just five runs six times in their first 20 games. However, the Dodgers have score 20 runs on 25 hits in two games against Cubs pitching, including belting five home runs. Casey Blake in particular has had a good series, with four hits in eight at-bats, including a home run, and three walks.

Kuroda is 2-2 with a 3.33 ERA in his first four starts this season, though he has lost his last two start. In two career starts against the Cubs, Kuroda has allowed just one earned run in 15 1/3 innings. Zambrano is 2-0 with a 4.21 ERA in four starts this season for the Cubs. Today's 11:20 a.m. PDT game will be televised by Prime Ticket.
