Clayton Kershaw earns 20th career win against rival Giants

Clayton Kershaw earns 20th career win against rival Giants

The Dodgers gave their ace all the support he would need before he even took the mound, scoring twice in the first inning on Grandal's two-run double that followed a single by Corey Seager and a double by Justin Turner.

The Dodgers tacked on two more runs in the sixth on a double by Yasiel Puig, and like Gandal's RBI hit in the first, Puig's came with two strike. Grandal figured Cueto was throwing at his head in the third out of frustration and retaliation.

Grandal said "it caught me by surprise" and insists that wasn't the case at all in the Dodgers' 6-1 victory behind Clayton Kershaw on Wednesday, but rather just him trying to get ready to move "because I'm slow". "We apologized to each other", Grandal said.

Things got a little testy in the third inning, as Johnny Cueto and Yasmani Grandal had words after a fly out.

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. Giants starter Johnny Cueto threw a first-pitch fastball up and in to Grandal.

Tigers 5, Orioles 4 • Tyler Collins snapped an 0-for-30 skid in style, hitting two home runs for Detroit in a win over visiting Baltimore. If we were, that's a part of the game. Cueto covered home plate, giving Grandal a convenient opportunity to have a conversation with the right-hander. They were sorry for the misunderstanding, Cueto said. Cueto seems to be improving the further removed he is from his blister issues.

"I'm not going to use that as an excuse but they were relaying signs", Cueto claimed through an interpreter after the game.

Los Angeles Dodgers left-hander Clayton Kershaw won his 20th career game against the San Francisco Giants on Wednesday, preventing a three-game sweep with seven innings of shutout ball in a 6-1 triumph in the series finale. He did not walk a batter in the contest and struck out five in what was a crisp, effective outing against the rival Giants.

When asked if he got any added satisfaction of being the stopper to end the losing streak Kershaw replied, "You know it doesn't change my mindset as far as starting".

Kershaw began the day 19-9 with a 1.66 earned run average - 1.36 at AT&T - in 38 outings against the Giants.

The home team didn't break the ice until Eduardo Nunez hit his first home of the season off former Giants reliever Sergio Romo with one out in the ninth.

Yankees 11, Royals 7 • Aaron Hicks hit a three-run homer to cap a five-run fourth and NY had 16 hits in a win at Kansas City.

Things didn't go almost as smoothly for Cueto, who lost at home for the first time since August 30.

Giants rookie Christian Arroyo started at shortstop, his third infield spot in as many days after playing third on Monday and second Tuesday night.

Belt, who hit his eighth home run of the season leading off the fourth, singled against the shift to open the sixth. The seven-time NL MVP is working for the club again as a special adviser.

"He pitched himself out of some traffic", Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said.
