Series Notes
The Pirates took the series from the Phillies and have started the season with a record of 2-1… The Dodgers took three of four from the Padres and sit 0.5 games out of first in the NL West… Last year’s NL MVP runner-up Matt Kemp is off to a hot start, hitting .412 (7 for 17) with 2 HR and 8 RBI… The Pirates face Clayton Kershaw on Tuesday night, who was the recipient of the 2011 NL Cy Young Award… Kershaw was hit with the stomach flu last week, but should be ready to face the Pirates… Kershaw is the eighth pitcher in Dodgers history to win the award… The Dodgers also won 3 Gold Gloves last season, with Kemp, Kershaw, and Andre Ethier taking home the hardware… A group led by Magic Johnson recently bought the Dodgers for $2.15 billion
