LA Needs Clayton Kershaw to Be Its Stopper

LA Needs Clayton Kershaw to Be Its Stopper

OUR PREDICTION: The Giants are 5-2 in Cueto's last seven starts against the Dodgers, who are just 6-20 in their last 26 games in San Francisco and 1-4 in their last five games against the Giants overall. Cueto then threw at Grandal's head in the third inning.

Dodgers pitcher Clayton Kershaw was in the zone on Wednesday against the Giants.

"We apologized to each other", Grandal said. "With guys on second base he thought we were relaying signs and so he obviously let us know and Corey early on about that". Words were exchanged, and both benches emptied.

Braves 8, Blue Jays 4: Kurt Suzuki hit a three-run homer to cap a six-run first inning, and Atlanta held on after Freddie Freeman left with an injury.

Belt homered for the fourth time in six games and scored the deciding run on Crawford's single in the sixth, while Posey added two hits. It was the 10th double of the season for Grandal, who has an extra-base hit in seven of his last nine games. If we were, that's a part of the game.

Cueto and Grandal made their apologies when Cueto came to bat in the bottom of the third and Grandal was behind the plate.

"He said, 'Sorry for the misunderstanding".

"It was a good pitch", Cueto said. "I was just going to keep on playing".

Snap Inc.'s quarterly report showed that the newly-public company lost a mind-numbing $2 billion in the previous quarter alone. Spiegel is now worth roughly $4.35 billion, based on his most recent disclosures with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Kershaw (W, 7-2) was his usual dominating self as he pitched seven shutout innings, giving up only three hits, and striking out five to pick up the win as the Dodgers ended a three game losing streak and the Giants five game winning streak.

Yasiel Puig singled in a pair of runs in the sixth as the Dodgers jumped on Cueto (4-3), who lost for the first time at home this season. He did not walk a batter in the contest and struck out five in what was a crisp, effective outing against the rival Giants.

PHOENIX - Chris Herrmann homered off Rafael Montero leading off the 11th inning, sending NY to its season-high seventh straight loss.

Cole shuts down Nationals as Pirates roll to win PITTSBURGH - Gerrit Cole shut down the best offense in the majors, holding the Washington Nationals to three hits in seven innings to win for the first time in a month as the Pittsburgh Pirates eased to a 6-1 victory Wednesday night.

Dickerson connected in the second inning off Josh Tomlin (2-5) and Logan Morrison hit a solo shot in the third for Tampa Bay, which went 4-2 on a swing through Boston and Cleveland.

"And then it happened to him again (with Puig) he gave up a base hit there to knock in a couple of runs". He has a 2.15 ERA, 26.1 percent strikeout rate, and 3.4 percent walk rate across 62 2/3 innings pitched.

Brewers 3, Padres 1 • Jett Bandy singled in the go-ahead run with one out in the ninth inning, allowing visiting Milwaukee to move into first place in the NL Central. He walked one and struck out six. They went 3-4 on their just-completed road trip and return home to face the Marlins on Thursday.

Dodgers: RHP Brandon McCarthy will pitch Sunday against the Marlins as Kenta Maeda gets a little more time to recover from a tight left hamstring that landed him on the disabled list.
