Dodgers Puig suspended 1 game for obscene gesture to fans

19 June, 2017, 05:15 | Author: Douglas Reid

Los Angeles Dodgers' Yasiel Puig avoids an inside pitch from Cleveland Indians starting pitcher Trevor Bauer during the fourth inning of a baseball game, Tuesday, June 13, 2017, in Cleveland.

No matter how the moment happened, or how the picture gets used, just enjoy the fact that there's now a picture out there of Yaisel Puig beautifully flipping you off. "So where do we go from here?"

Cody Bellinger continued his outstanding rookie season with two home runs, including a tiebreaking shot in the eighth inning off Andrew Miller.

Puig's actions came during the second inning.

Francona felt ill late in the Indians' 7-5 loss to the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Puig went 1-for-4 with a pair of strikeouts on Wednesday.

Lester brought up 150 career victories as he led the Chicago Cubs past the New York Mets 14-3.

Brandon McCarthy breezed through the first five innings for the boys in blue before he ran into trouble in the bottom of the sixth.

Portugal and Mexico draw 2-2 in Confederations Cup
A few minutes after this, he was part of the build-up play which saw Portugal take a 2-1 lead late on. Too bad for Portugal as they left a stoppage time goal and Mexico earned a 2-2 draw.

Corey Seager followed with an infield single, and the next two hitters, Justin Turner and Bellinger, drew walks, loading the bases. His return will send Michael Brantley to the bench.

An error on Indians second baseman Erik Gonzalez on a failed double-play attempt that would have ended the inning spurred the Dodgers' big inning.

"That was something else. I need to be better at getting ahead and throwing strikes", said Miller, who still is having an All-Star caliber season. "I kept thinking 'How can I be this lucky?' but somehow things worked out and I'll take it".

"I reacted that way", Puig said through an interpreter after Tuesday's contest, noting that he was spontaneously responding to a group of hecklers at Cleveland's Progressive Field. It was Robertson's first major-league home run and set up a one-out save for Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen.

It was a short night for Mariners pitcher Christian Bergman, who was yanked after giving up nine earned runs on 10 hits in just 2.2 innings.

Jose Ramirez tied it at 2 with a solo homer in the seventh and the Indians scored two more times in the eighth to make it interesting.

"My main focus this season is to do damage and drive the ball", Hernandez told SportsNetLA. He is 5-0 with a 1.94 ERA since his most recent defeat on May 1.

More importantly for the Dodgers, they moved into a tie atop the National League West after the Rockies lost in Pittsburgh for the second straight night.
