Dodgers Vs. White Sox: Hiroki Kuroda Faces Old Friend Edwin Jackson In Series Finale

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.

Today's 11:10 a.m. PDT game will be televised on Prime Ticket and WGN. For more news and information on the Dodgers, or on today's game, be sure to read the SB Nation blog True Blue LA.
