After celebrating homer, Yasiel Puig aims obscene gesture toward fans in Cleveland

After a video review Cody Bellinger was ruled safe at second, and Corey Seager scored to make it 4-2.

Yasiel Puig was suspended one game Wednesday by Major League Baseball after making an obscene gesture in the Dodgers' 7-5 road win Tuesday over the Indians.

However, the Indians did put up a combined 15 runs in Kluber's last two starts, so perhaps that is the start of a trend.

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts struck a more serious tone Wednesday, saying (via MLB.com), "I talked to him today, and it was just something that he wishes didn't happen. And I got to go with the lights on to the hospital, so that was a treat". Ramirez smacked a solo homer on Wednesday; Lindor had two hits and a run. It was the first response run given up by Cleveland's bullpen this season and marked the second time in as many games that Miller allowed a go-ahead home run.

I'm still trying to wrap my head around how that ball left the yard. "I couldn't strike anybody out", McCarthy said of his outing.

"He's got really good stuff, so you have to keep everything short and battle", Hernandez told Alanna Rizzo of his at-bat against Miller. "He hung a slider, and I got it".

The Dodgers scored four times in the eighth inning against Miller and hung on for a 6-4 victory over the Indians.

"That's the handsome thing about baseball", Roberts said. He understood how I felt.

The Dodgers have won the first two games of this series, picking up a 7-5 win on Tuesday and following that up with a 6-4 win on Wednesday night. He was replaced by bench coach Brad Mills. There was no immediate word following the game on Francona's condition.

The climactic moment in the ballgame came in the sixth, when Miller left all three of his inherited runners stranded on a bases-loaded strikeout of Puig...

Dodgers' reliever Josh Fields surrendered the game-tying homer, his third home run allowed in his last four appearances. Cueto allowed five runs and 10 hits over 5 2/3 innings. Kenley Jansen relieved Hatcher and picked up his 12th save by striking out Jason Kipnis to end the game.

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. Chris Taylor had a two-run single to ultimately give Los Angeles the winning runs.
