Kuo aces likely final tuneup

LOS ANGELES -- Dodgers reliever Hong-Chih Kuo had what is expected to be his final Minor League rehab appearance Sunday, a perfect six-pitch inning for Class A Inland Empire.

Facing Modesto, Kuo pitched the seventh inning. He had one three-pitch strikeout, a flyout to center field and a lineout to right field.

If Kuo comes out of the appearance with no physical setbacks, he's expected to be on the Dodgers' flight to Cincinnati on Monday and activated for Tuesday's opener against the Reds.
