Yasiel Puig flipped off the Cleveland crowd after hitting a home run


The Miami Marlins were 8-1 victors against the Oakland Athletics, the Chicago White Sox got the better of the Baltimore Orioles 6-1 and the Texas Rangers claimed a 4-2 win over the Houston Astros. He allowed six hits in those seven innings - including three doubles and a home run. But Hernandez, pinch-hitting for Chase Utley, hit a 1-2 pitch over the right field wall for his sixth home run.

"I left it in a spot where he can hit it pretty well".

"They gave me a bunch of IVs", said Francona, who was released early Wednesday morning. He was just trying to get on base. "He hung a slider, and I got it".

Cody Bellinger went yard twice and added a double for the Dodgers, but did not give any one-fingered waves to the fans. It came off his bat at 110 miles per hour, one of the hardest-hit home runs off Kershaw since Statcast began tracking such things in 2015.

"That's the handsome thing about baseball", Roberts said. He understood how I felt. This will be Kershaw's first start against the Indians in nine years. That was to David Ross in Game 7, and Miller made a similar frustrating gesture, bending down to his knees, after Bellinger's left the yard. Francona had to leave the dugout in the eighth inning of Tuesday's game because he was feeling ill. There was no further information on the condition of Francona, who did not meet with reporters after the game.

Taylor also had a two-run single in the eighth. The home run was Puig's 10th of the season. This was Bellinger's fourth multi-dinger game, making him the first rookie ever to achieve that feat in his first 50 games. Mike Piazza had five such games in 1993 and Corey Seager had four games in 2016.

Kluber recorded his 1,000th strikeout and became the fastest pitcher in team history to reach that mark. Kenley Jansen relieved Hatcher and picked up his 12th save by striking out Jason Kipnis to end the game.

The Indians sputtered through the first five innings, managing only a hit - a two-out double in the first from Michael Brantley - off Dodgers starter Brandon McCarthy. Chris Taylor led off with a single.

"[Bellinger] was pretty good tonight", Mills said. Perez was all over the full-count fastball that followed.

"We know he's a good pitcher, but I would expect guys are going up there grinding out at-bats", Miller said.
