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

Bellinger hit home runs Saturday and Sunday (two) in the weekend series at Dodger Stadium and resumed his latest power surge with his 16th and 17th of the season Tuesday at Progressive Field.

One location mistake tends to be the defining moment of a tightly contested ballgame.

Yasiel Puig crushed a two-run homer in the second inning Tuesday to give the Dodgers an early 2-0 lead over the Indians.

Padres 6, Reds 2: Clayton Richard carried a shutout into the ninth inning, Franchy Cordero homered twice and San Diego beat slumping Cincinnati. Robertson's first career Major League home run came with two outs, and the Indians were unable to extend the game after the blast.

After stranding two in the opening inning, Bauer allowed a leadoff single to Chris Taylor and a two-out, two-run homer to No. 9 hitter Yasiel Puig for the first runs of the game in the second. Bench coach Brad Mills fdid the postgame interview in place of Francona, but he said little about why Francona left the game. "I'm sure he would say that he would have liked to have a couple of those pitches (called strikes), maybe put him in some better counts and maybe keep the pitch count down".

"Tonight was not a great night for me", Kershaw said. "For the first time all year, I think the results were better than I actually pitched".

Bellinger got a lot of advice from teammates before the game about facing Miller.

That's a pretty good Mr. Met impersonation. So while Judge has 22 home runs in 255 plate appearances, Bellinger is ahead of that pace, having stepped into the batter's box just 184 times this season. "I felt like I wasn't as sharp as I'd like to be and was able to kind of grind through it". It was just a pretty poor at-bat (to Bellinger). "It's easy to look back and see what I could've done differently".

Nationals 10, Braves 5: Ryan Zimmerman hit his 18th and 19th home runs of the season in his return from back soreness, and Washington scored five sixth-inning runs against R.A. Dickey to defeat the Braves. If this was indeed a preview of the 2017 World Series, the Indians will go into knowing firsthand what to expect from Kershaw, whose list of accomplishments is as long as the 430-foot home run Tribe catcher Roberto Perez hit off him in the bottom of the fifth to tie the game, 2-2. He has lost a couple games. Neither pitcher had given up a homer previously this year.

"The guys had some real good at-bats", said Mills.

In his last three games, Bellinger is 6-for-12, with five home runs and eight RBIs.

Kershaw cleaned up his ledger with two scoreless innings before Pedro Baez set down all three hitters he faced.

"He's one of the best relievers in the game and is super deceptive", Bellinger said.

"I thought he battled through it".

"I had no feeling whatsoever", said Robertson. He beat me on that one. "So after I it, I was pumped because we got a little bit of momentum, and when you roll over the top of the order and you have to pitch to Kipnis, Frankie and Brantley, that's what your trying to do".

Bart Swain, Indians director of media relations, told reporters that Francona, 58, left the game with an illness, but gave no further details. The 28 hits are the most in a game since the Rangers had 29 in a 30-3 win over the Orioles on August 22, 2007.
