Old Dodgers return in 3-2 loss

Hiroki Kuroda had one inning to regret, allowing a single, double and three-run home run to Brandon Allen, and the Dodgers (despite Matt Kemp’s 24th home run) couldn’t rescue him and lose to Arizona, 3-2, ending their five-game winning streak.

Kuroda, who struck out seven and allowed six baserunners over six innings, combined with Scott Elbert (two innings) to retire the final 15 Diamondbacks. But following a gift run on a bases-loaded walk to Rafael Furcal, Los Angeles didn’t threaten after Andre Ethier popped out to end the top of the fifth.

Despite making his 12th quality start of the year in 19 tries, Kuroda’s record fell to 6-11.
