Turner injures right hamstring, Dodgers beat Marlins 7-2

They swept a four-game series from Los Angeles in manager Don Mattingly's first return since parting ways with the Dodgers two years ago.

Gonzalez started at first base after a 14-day layoff and batted sixth against the Miami Marlins.

Prior to his stint on the disabled list, Gonzalez had played 1,833 games without a trip to the DL, which was the most among active players.

Madrid Open: Djokovic, Nadal fight on as Wawrinka bows out
Nadal didn't convert any of his six break point chances in the first set but had no problems in the tie-break to take the opener. Fognini played aggressively, however, and forced Nadal on to the defensive as he took the match into a deciding set.


Gonzalez was batting.255 with 11 RBI's and six runs scored in 105 plate appearances this season. The southpaw allowed two runs in the first inning, five in the second - though none counted against his ERA due to an Austin Barnes error - and three more in the fourth (the final run in that frame scoring on a balk) before being relieved of duty. Because the 91-mph fastball from Edinson Volquez (0-6) hit him in his non-throwing arm, Ryu was able to remain in the game.

The Dodgers, three games back on the Colorado Rockies in the NL West, open up a four-game home series against the Miami Marlins Thursday night at 10:10 p.m. ET.

"The strength was there still, which is a positive", Roberts said. Ryu walked a whopping six batters in the contest and threw just 57 of his 101 pitches for strikes. Volquez said he apologized to Ryu after.

"I'm good, I'm playing", Gonzalez said in a brief exchange with reporters before the game.

Miami placed RHP Junichi Tazawa (ribs) on the 10-day disabled list, designated INF Mike Aviles for assignment, optioned RHP Tom Koehler to Triple-A New Orleans, added INF Christian Colon (waivers from Kansas City) to the 25-man roster and recalled RHPs Brian Ellington and Odrisamer Despaigne from New Orleans. LHP Wei-Yin Chin (arm fatigue) traveled with the team to Los Angeles, and doctors are discussing his situation and options. RHP Kenta Maeda (left hamstring tightness) will throw four innings tomorrow in a rehab start in Class A Rancho Cucamonga and is expected to make his next start next week against St. Louis.

The 30-year-old is 1-1 with a 3.97 ERA and 1.24 WHIP in two home starts this season compared to being 0-4 with a 5.59 ERA and 1.81 WHIP on the road.
