Kuroda injured in loss

Diamondbacks 4, Dodgers 3
Hiroki Kuroda was carted off the field and taken to the hospital after taking a liner to the head. (AP)
Jonathan Broxton blew two-run ninth-inning lead and Ramon Troncoso couldn't keep the D-backs off the board as the Dodgers dropped their third game in a row. To make matters worse, Hiroki Kuroda exited the game in the sixth inning after being hit on the left side of his head by a line drive.
