Hiroki Kuroda may be hitting the wall for the Dodgers. Kuroda has only managed 11.2 innings in his last three starts getting banged around for 17 runs for an ERA of 13.11. He has allowed five runs or more in five of his last nine starts compared to just one in his first 11. Yusmeiro Petit had been relegated to the pen for most of '08, but his two starts have produced results, where he has worked 11 innings and allowing just two runs. The D-Backs are also back to their winning ways having won nine of their last 11, and the pitching has been outstanding, allowing three runs or less in nine of the 11 games. We like the D-Backs here in a valued dog role.
