Welcome to the fish fry. In the fourth, he hit Dodgers pitcher Hyun-Jin Ryu, who was trying to bunt, and loaded the bases, but threw only 11 pitches - including three strikes.

"It seemed a certain DL, but we'll hold out hope", Roberts said, via MLB.com's Ken Gurnick. "But if I needed to, I could have stayed in the game".

One bright spot has been the play of Justin Bour, who homered in the loss and has gone 21-for-56 with six home runs and 16 RBIs since April 30. He allowed two solo home runs, and has now been touched for eight long balls this year in 36 innings.

"Something like that would be appreciated if that could happen again", Mattingly said.

Giancarlo Stanton led off with a low line drive off the left-field wall for a double.

Ryu was taken out of Thursday's game with one out in the fifth after taking a batted ball off his left leg.

The Marlins' second inning was a clinic in getting unlucky.

To make room for Gonzalez on the roster, infielder/outfielder Scott Van Slyke was optioned to Triple-A Oklahoma City. "When you have herniated discs, you just have to try and keep the inflamation down".

Eibner has played five games for the Dodgers this season, seeing time in left, center and right field.

Kenley Jansen entered with two on and two outs in the eighth and struck out all four of his batters for his eighth save.

Jansen then earned his eighth save by striking out the side on nine pitches in the ninth, the so-called "immaculate inning".

"He sent me a picture", Volquez said. "They explained it to me and that was awesome". He hit over.400 in the year's first month, since tailing off to.379. It was his first hit since 2010, the first plate appearance of his career.

Before Turner shrieked in pain, the loudest sounds in Dodger Stadium were created by hitters from both clubs, who combined to produce 14 batted balls with an exit velocity of 100 miles per hour or more in the first six innings.

Five frozen ropes, two hits, one run. He left the game and is expected to be placed on the 10-day DL on Friday. "It didn't look good from my vantage point". He's apparently strained his right hamstring. He hobbled his way home, where he was easily thrown out to end the inning, and was replaced by Chris Taylor at third base. Turner will be re-evaluated on Friday. In his major league season debut on Sunday, Nicolino received a no-decision in a 3-1 victory over the Atlanta Braves. First pitch is scheduled for 7:10 PM PST.
