LEADING OFF: Kershaw faces Brewers; M's await injury reports

Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Clayton Kershaw works against the San Francisco Giants during a baseball game in San Francisco. Kershaw starts Friday's series opener for the Dodger

LA tied the game on a homer by Yasmani Grandal off Brewers' closer Corey Knebel in the top of the 9th to send it to the extra frames.

With four strikeouts on Friday night, Kenley Jansen has now struck out 37 batters and walked none over his entire 2017 season.

Kershaw pitched eight innings on the mound against the Brewers and finished with 14 strikeouts, one short of his career high.

Per ESPN Stats & Info, Kershaw hit the 2,000-strikeout mark in 277 games, second-fastest to reach that plateau in Major League Baseball history.

The teams would trade scoreless innings until the 12th when Bellinger, who was 0-for-3 with three strikeouts and an intentional walk, bombed a home run to right, his 12th, to give the Dodgers the lead and ultimately the win.

In a game that featured 42 strikeouts, one especially stood out. The Dodgers hitters struck out 16 times which is three less than their season high.




Milwaukee Brewers' Manny Pina and Jesus Aguilar (24) collide going after a foul ball hit by the Dodgers' Cody Bellinger during the seventh inning Friday, June 2, 2017, in Milwaukee.

OUR PREDICTION: The Dodgers are 6-1 in their last seven games against the Brewers and have won four of their last five games in Milwaukee.

Chris Taylor hit a go-ahead grand slam off Carlos Torres in a five-run ninth inning, and the Los Angeles Dodgers rallied late for the second straight day to beat the Milwaukee Brewers 10-8 Saturday. Pedro Martinez reached the milestone in 1,715 1/3 innings, and Randy Johnson was next at 1,734 innings.

The Dodgers acquired LHP Jason Wheeler from the Minnesota Twins for cash considerations and optioned him to Triple-A Oklahoma City. Wood might return for the Dodgers' series next weekend at home against the Reds, Roberts said.

Cleveland's Josh Tomlin, who starts the opener of a three-game series in Kansas City, is 1-0 with a 1.13 ERA in two starts against the Royals this season and has a 10-4 record against them in 19 starts.
