Nationals-Dodgers Preview

(AP) -- The Washington Nationals can win a road series in Los Angeles for the first time in nine years, but Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw could prove a considerable obstacle.

Kershaw looks to become baseball's first 17-game winner by earning a fifth consecutive victory over the Nationals on Tuesday night to keep the NL West leaders from a fourth loss in five contests.

Washington (78-58) hasn't earned two wins in a road series against the Dodgers (77-61) since May 2-4, 2005. The Nationals put themselves on the cusp of that achievement with Monday's 6-4 victory. Denard Span hit two home runs for the NL East leaders, who won for the third time in four games after opening a nine-game trip with three consecutive losses.
