L.A. vs. Detroit recap

Today's MLB game remained all tied up into the seventh-inning. That's when the Los Angeles Dodgers got a key single from Adrian Gonzalez which scored the newest team member, Curtis Granderson. In the next inning, Justin Turner hit a two-out RBI single.

A home run from Yasmani Grandal in the ninth made it a 3-0 lead for the Dodgers.

Los Angeles managed to hold Detroit scoreless thanks to a combination of four different pitchers. Hyun Jin Ryu went five innings, getting four strikeouts and giving up three hits. Ross Stripling pitched two innings and also struck out four while allowing no hits. Also pitching were Brandon Morrow and Kenley Jansen. Stripling picked up today's win to go to 3-4 for the season while Jansen earned his 33rd save of the season.

In scary news for Dodgers fans, star rookie Cody Bellinger seemed to roll his ankle in the sixth while making an out. The team brought in Yasiel Puig as a replacement hitter while Bellinger left the game with the injury. It's expected he'll be available tomorrow but won't start, according to managers Dave Roberts.
