The Los Angeles Dodgers will be forced to finish their series against the Chicago Cubs on Sunday without early MVP candidate Matt Kemp.

Kemp, who has a .392 average to go along with 12 home runs and 27 RBIs, was scratched on Sunday due to a tight left hamstring.

There is wet weather in Chicago so it might be a precautionary measure, but it is still alarming to have a triple crown contender sidelined with a hamstring injury. 

Kemp was bothered by his left hamstring last June, but did not miss significant time. The Dodgers are hoping that this is another minor nuisance that does not result in Kemp missing a drastic length of time.

The Dodgers return to L.A. Monday night to welcome the San Francisco Giants.
