Rough first inning for Kuroda

Dodgers starting pitcher Hiroki Kuroda entered Monday having never allowed more than two home runs in a start in his entire career (Dylan Hernandez via Twitter). It only took the Nationals five hitters in the first inning to set a new mark Monday.

Ian Desmond led off the Nationals' half of the first inning with a home run. After a Rick Ankiel single and Ryan Zimmerman fly out, Michael Morse homered. Again, this tied a career high in home runs allowed in a single game for Kuroda and it was only four batters into his outing. Jayson Werth then followed with a home run of his own, meaning Kuroda had established a new career-low in terms of the longball in a single game.

At least he got it out of the way quickly.

What a said story for the Dodgers this year..maybe Kemp can win the MVP and give them something to cheer about.  How long will it be before the Dodgers make the playoffs?
