Dodgers News: LA Needs Clayton Kershaw to Be Its Stopper

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Eventually, Johnny Cueto and Yasmani Grandal spoke civilly and worked out their differences as grown men: They each apologized before tension escalated. Cueto then threw at Grandal's head in the third inning.

Clayton Kershaw was his usual dominating self on Wednesday, throwing seven scoreless innings as the Dodgers shut down the Giants 6-1. "We're on good terms now, so let's not make it a bigger deal than it is". But because the pitch was up high, Grandal was not happy, and the two had words.

Cueto (4-3) was pulled after six innings, having allowed five runs on eight hits. Maybin, batting leadoff for the second time in an Angels uniform, went 3 for 4 with two runs scored and drew a walk a day after a career-best five hits.

"Whether we were or we weren't, obviously he was displeased by it and let us know", Roberts said without acknowledging whether his team was in fact stealing signs.

Rockies-Twins • Colorado's game at Minnesota was postponed by storms and will be made up Thursday as part of a day-night doubleheader. They were sorry for the misunderstanding, Cueto said.

"Just a lot of talk", Kershaw said, dismissing the confrontation for what it was.

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

Clayton Kershaw became a career 20-game victor against the Giants, whose five-game win streak wilted Wednesday afternoon against the ace left-hander in a 6-1 Dodgers win at AT&T Park. He retired the first 10 Giants before giving up a soft single to Justin Ruggiano with one out in the fourth inning.

Houston Astros' Jose Altuve hits an RBI double scoring George Springer during the first inning of a baseball game against the Miami Marlins, Wednesday, May 17, 2017, in Miami.

Kershaw allowed three hits and didn't walk a batter for the fourth time in 2017 as the Dodgers snapped their three-game skid and ended the Giants' season-best five-game winning streak.

Diamondbacks 5, Mets 4, 11 inn.: Chris Herrmann homered off Rafael Montero leading off the 11th inning, sending NY to its season-high seventh straight loss. LHP Sandy Koufax had a 1.44 career ERA against the New York Mets.

Rays 7, Indians 4: Corey Dickerson hit a three-run shot - his third homer in two days - and Alex Cobb controlled Cleveland over seven innings.

Chicago went ahead to stay with five runs in the second against Scott Feldman (2-4), who was chased in the third.

Jason Kipnis almost extended the Indians' game against the Rays, but his would-be home run was robbed by a spectacular walk-off catch by Tampa's Gold Glove center fielder Kevin Kiermaier. Kyle Hendricks (3-2) pitched six innings and drove in a run for the Cubs. He has allowed one or fewer walks in all but one of his starts. That completed a seven-game homestand with single losses sandwiching the five straight wins. You're a pitch away from getting out of the inning a couple of times and it didn't happen.

Bradley cut it to 4-2 with a drive to center field, his second homer in two games and fourth this year.
