Dodgers' Yasiel Puig suspended one game for obscene gesture

Fortunately we have a lot of baseball in front of us, but we need to get moving.

Bellinger's first homer Tuesday came against Miller, one of the best left-handed relievers in the majors, who had not allowed a home run to anyone this season or an extra-base hit of any kind to a left-handed hitter. "He's been so good, so incredibly good, that when he gives up a run it's shocking to people". Batting from the left side of the plate, Ramirez hit a hanging breaking ball on a 2-2 count over the wall, but the Dodgers had an answer in the form of a four-run eighth inning.

Los Angeles (40-25) is riding a five-game winning streak that has taken them to the top of the National League West. Three walks isn't ideal, but when it's paired with five strikeouts and just six hits against the Los Angeles Dodgers, it's far from awful.

Puig's homer Tuesday was the 10th of the season, as the 2014 all-star attempts to bounce back from a disappointing pair of seasons that saw him deal with injuries, struggle at the plate, get sent to the minors and earn a reputation as something of a head case.

Closing statements expected in Boston Baby Doe murder trial
After 15 days of testimony, the defense rested its case on Monday morning - without Michael McCarthy taking the stand. McCarthy is accused of killing Bella Bond two years ago. "Can you believe anything this woman says?" he asked jurors.

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said he didn't see the gesture and asked jokingly, "Are you sure it wasn't No. 1 he was signaling?" "For us to be talking about obscene gestures - I don't want to do it and I know he doesn't want to do it either".

McCarthy is 0-2 in his last two starts, despite a 3.27 ERA. Before his final, five-pitch, blister-shortened start for the A's on July 17, 2016, Hill pitched six consecutive quality starts for Oakland against AL opponents. Then, first baseman Cody Bellinger drew a walk when he took a 3-2 pitch outside of the zone, which loaded the bases.

For Tomlin, all that strike-throwing has not translated into a successful season. Though the team has rarely had issues with their bullpen, the best in the American league, nor have they had a great year from their rotation, worst in the AL, it was the small things that wound up their undoing. In his last five starts, he has not walked a batter but is 1-4 with a 5.53 ERA. The Indians are 2-2 in the first four games of this six-game homestand. Los Angeles is 4-0 all-time at Progressive Field and 24-9 this season when playing outside their division. The Indians rank near the top of the American League in team ERA, but that's mostly due to their stellar bullpen. Bradley Zimmer, in the leadoff spot in Kipnis' absence, tested his arm and won the battle to make it 2-1.
