Taylor's 9th-inning slam leads Dodgers over Brewers 10-8

  • 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

And Kershaw needs to strike out only four Brewers tonight to reach 2,000 career strikeouts in fewer innings than all but two previous pitchers - both Hall of Famers.

Milwaukee Brewers shortstop Jonathan Villar was the victim of Kershaw's 2,000th punch out.

Dodgers starting pitcher Clayton Kershaw throws during the first inning against the Milwaukee Brewers Friday, June 2, 2017, in Milwaukee. When he struck out Jimmy Nelson in the third, Kershaw moved past Andy Benes, who finished his career with exactly 2000 strikeouts to climb further up the ladder. Kershaw was dominant, retiring 20 in a row until Domingo Santana hit a two-out solo home run to provide the first run of the game.

He is the 79th Major League pitcher to accomplish the feat.

Prosecutors seeking jail time for former Penn State president Graham Spanier
In the emails, Shultz, Curley and Spanier allegedly discussed plans to tell Sandusky to seek professional help. He played the washboard at a local bar in town, and spent a night each semester sleeping in freshman dorms.

But Bellinger had the biggest hit after lining a 1-2 fastball from Feliz (1-5) into the right-field bleachers to break the 1-1 tie. The left-hander needed 86 pitches to get through his five innings, and with his blister issues it was probably best not to push him to complete a sixth. That tied the record for the most strikeouts by a team in a single game.

"His stuff is electric", Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said. Garza, on the other hand, has given up 10 runs in his last two starts covering 11 innings of work. He has not allowed more than two earned runs in consecutive regular-season starts since his last start before going on the disabled list with a back injury a year ago (in June) and his first start after returning (in September).

The Dodgers will start Rich Hill and the Brewers will counter with right-hander Matt Garza. Garza has now struggled in two straight starts and it seems likely that his ERA will continue to rise.
