Miller threw seven pitches in the seventh inning Monday night before leaving a game against the Boston Red Sox.

Wendelstedt was hit after Kelly replaced Eduardo Rodriguez in the sixth inning of a game against the Cleveland Indians on Monday night.

Wendelstedt stayed in the game for the remainder of the inning. We all remember how important home field advantage was last October, when the Indians swept the Red Sox with relative ease.

Quite a bit has changed since that brief postseason appearance for the Red Sox last season, with Chris Sale now in the mix in their starting rotation. This will be Rodriguez's second career game against the Indians.

Dodgers outfielder Curtis Granderson became both the first player in Major League Baseball history to hit two grand slams in a four-game span for different teams, and the first player in history to hit a grand slam both batting leadoff and batting cleanup in the same season when he he cleared the bases in the seventh inning of a 6-5 win in 12 innings against the Pirates. The Cleveland Indians have won 10 of their last 11 games when scoring more than three runs.

- Clevinger lasted just three innings in a July 31 start in Boston, surrendering five runs off of seven hits.

Pollock hit a two-run home run in the top of the 10th inning to lead the Diamondbacks to a 3-2 win over the Mets.

The Red Sox are 6-1 in their last 7 vs. The Indians are 4-0 in their last 4 vs. Kluber is expected to make his next start later in the week. His first win for the Red Sox after being dealt from the Padres last season came against the Indians last August. He stands 6-5 on the year with an up-and-down 3.97 ERA, 1.34 WHIP, and 99/48 K/BB ratio over 88 1/3 frames. Just ask Xander Bogaerts, who is 1-for-11 against the righty. Boston won with three runs off of Indians closer Cody Allen in the ninth inning.
