Dodgers drop opener
Photos
Diamondbacks 4, Dodgers 1
Manny Ramirez led the Dodgers with three hits on Friday night. (Jon SooHoo/LA Dodgers)
Clayton Kershaw had one bad inning as he let up four runs in the second, but with the Dodgers facing D-backs ace Dan Haren, Kershaw's second-inning struggles were too much to overcome. Matt Kemp plated the Dodgers' only run of the night, as he blasted a solo homer off Haren in the fifth.
