Kemp gets in seven innings in third rehab game
PHOENIX -- Matt Kemp continues to make progress and remains on track to join the Dodgers after the All-Star break.

On Thursday, Kemp went 1-for-4 with an RBI and played seven innings in center field in his third rehab appearance for Class A Rancho Cucamonga in a 5-2 loss to Inland Empire. He has five hits in 11 at-bats for the Quakes.

The plan for Kemp is to play one more seven-inning game, a nine-inning game and then one more at DH. He is scheduled to participate in the State Farm Home Run Derby, on Monday at 5 p.m. PT on ESPN.

Before the rehab assignment, Kemp had not played since he aggravated his left hamstring strain on May 30.
