The Dodgers look to win their first interleague road series since 2009 on Sunday as they face the White Sox in the rubber game of a three-game series at U.S. Cellular Field in Chicago. Hiroki Kuroda gets the start for the Dodgers, taking a 14 2/3 scoreless inning streak into today's contest. Former Dodger Edwin Jackson gets the start for Chicago.
The Dodgers took the first game of the series on Friday, 6-4 in 10 innings after Russ Mitchell hit a home run with two outs in the ninth inning to tie the game. The White Sox came back on Saturday with a six-run fourth inning to knock out Jon Garland and picked up a 9-2 win. Rookie Jerry Sands did hit his first major league home run for the Dodgers in the loss.
Kuroda hasn't allowed a run in each of his last two starts, and on the season is 5-3 with a 2.80 ERA in nine starts. Andre Ethier is in a 1-for-28 slump in his last eight games for the Dodgers. Edwin Jackson, the former Dodgers draft pick who was traded away in 2006, is 3-5 this season with a 4.53 ERA.
