Kershaw, Strasburg ailing; Cubs get boost — LEADING OFF

Los Angeles Dodgers catcher Yasmani Grandal gets past Atlanta Braves catcher Tyler Flowers to score in the 6th inning. The Dodgers played the Atlanta Braves at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles

Against a team like the Dodgers, that was still pretty good.

The Dodgers are 31-5 over their last 36 games and on pace for a 112-win season.

One thing to consider as well is that Scherzer has always been vulnerable to the home run ball. "Hopefully find out more". I have to side with Arizona here behind its ace.

The crowd, so appreciative of the spectacular and sustained success of the home team, did not dream of booing this rare off night ... no, check that. "I'm not optimistic. Hopefully we'll find out more tonight".

"We enjoyed that ride", manager Dave Roberts said.

Kershaw, unbeaten in 15 consecutive starts, came out after 21 pitches.

"There's a lot of frustration", a visibly disappointed Kershaw said following the game. "Just countless hours of back maintenance and rehab just trying to stay healthy. It's good when you contribute to the team", Hill said.

Since the All-Star break, Giancarlo Stanton has five hits, four of which have been home runs. Stripling has been average so far this season, giving up 17 runs in 42.2 innings pitched. Last year, Kershaw went on the DL in late June and had the whole month of September to pitch his way back into form.

-The Nationals recalled catcher Pedro Severino and selected the contract of outfielder Andrew Stevenson from Triple-A Syracuse.

Tom Koehler (1-5) gave up six runs - five earned - and nine hits in 5 2/3 innings. "We won't know more until we get the scans, but we're holding out hope".

With some of the best bats in the league facing some of the very best pitchers, there are opportunities arising around the league for others to shine.

"I think that's to be determined", Roberts said. "Man, hopefully everything is all right". He struck out four and walked four.

But the veteran starter, who is making $12 million this year, has a history of shoulder trouble and was just 10-13 with a 4.67 ERA for the Braves last season.

Odor's two-run drive off Brad Boxberger (2-2) tied the score, and Gomez put the Rangers ahead 6-5 two pitches later.

He bounced back to be a 10-game winner for St. Louis in 2015 and 2016. If the deal is completed, the cost of acquiring Garcia would be reasonable. "Today was a good example of that". However, Arodys Vizcaino got out of the inning when Yasmani Grandal popped up. One batter earlier, Freddie Freeman drove in Atlanta's first run with a groundout.

The Braves will send Mike Foltynewicz against Dodgers in the series opener Thursday.

Jamaica goalkeeper Andre Blake kept the game scoreless with a series of saves while Mexico dominated possession despite missing most of its top players. "Teams come out and play their best against you". He belted a 3-0 pitch from reliever Rex Brothers into the right field bullpen. In his previous 10 starts, he had given up six runs in 62 innings.

NOTES: Dodgers 3B Justin Turner has bronchitis, but he returned to the starting lineup Sunday after missing Saturday's game.

With just 27 games left at Dodger Stadium, the Blue Crew guaranteed themselves a winning record at the Ravine in 2017. ESPN Stats & Info noted it was the third-shortest start in his career.
