Torre: Dodgers outfielders All-Star caliber

CINCINNATI -- Manager Joe Torre believes it's possible that the National League All-Star team could have a starting outfield consisting exclusively of Dodgers.

"They're certainly going to get some attention," Torre said. "When you put those three guys out there together, it's impressive what they're doing."

Center fielder Matt Kemp was batting .353 with five home runs and 10 RBIs entering Tuesday's game vs. the Reds, and he was riding an eight-game hitting streak. He was tied for second in the NL in homers with Albert Pujols.

Kemp's fellow outfielders, Andre Ethier, who was batting .389 with three homers and 12 RBIs entering Tuesday, and Manny Ramirez, who was hitting .375 with two homers, form a dynamic trio.

"Offensively, they've been the heart of our lineup," said Torre. "It's Manny and the two youngsters."
