Garcia pitched seven innings and hit a grand slam.
Suzuki rounds the bases after his two-run drive off Brandon McCarthy.
"A couple bad pitches they ambushed me early in the count", Blach said. However, since flipping the calendar to July he has been atrocious, going 0-3 with an 11.37 ERA, nine walks and three homers allowed over just 12 2/3 innings. Garcia capped the scoring with a grand slam - on an 0-2 pitch, no less - to give the Braves a 9-0 lead.
Garcia, who has seen his nine-inning strikeout rate dip to 6.88, rebounded to allow one earned run in seven innings on Sunday in a win over the Arizona Diamondbacks.
What may come as a surprise is just how expensive oddsmakers are making it to back the ball club.
"The walk and home run by Suzuki put them in a good spot", said Dodgers manager Dave Roberts. He also hit one in '11.
After a walk to Nick Markakis, Kurt Suzuki hit a two-run homer in the fourth to give the Braves some breathing room. Medical reports were still being evaluated as well, but the deal was said to be "very close to final". It's rumors season. Buckle up. That gave the Braves a 4-0 lead. "I heard Yas yelling my name". "Obviously that was the goal tonight". Ross Stripling took over, spelling the shortest start by Wood since April 21. Only six out of those thirteen teams wound up winning the World Series: Tigers (1984), Yankees (1998), Yankees (1961), Reds (1975), Orioles (1970), Mets (1986). He's hit into a DP in each of his last three games. Both times, Wood has lost.
Matt Kemp hit into his MLB-leading 21st double play in the 3rd inning. "Woody will be fine". They have now lost five - that's right, five - of their last 36 games.
Dodgers center fielder Kiké Hernandez went 2 for 4 and scored twice. "He had good stuff, was on the attack".
"I tried to talk to the guys who had already faced him, especially if he's a starter and Teheran was still in there", Taylor said of his first at-bat coming off the bench to leadoff the seventh inning.
"Even until that last out, I thought we were going to find a way to win the game", Roberts said.
It was a weird night all around.
This is not the first time Kershaw has dealt with a back issue.

Unfortunately, Friday evening was a reminder that Wood is, in fact, still human. "He gave us a great start". "Woody will be fine". It was Wood's first error this season. "I felt a little something in my back that wasn't normal", Kershaw said after the game.
Spieth's Eagle Putt On 15 At 2017 Open Championship

US Soccer heads to Gold Cup final
His first goal for the United States came in 2005 when the former Fulham player scored in a friendly defeat to England. A striker like Altidore doesn't even think of attempting that when he is routinely finding the back of the net.

But while Spieth held his nerve to register to one last birdie from further out on the last shot of the day, Kuchar lost his. The 2017 Open Championship is down to its final round and Jordan Spieth is moving himself away from the rest of the field.
Spieth Finishes Strongly To Win Open
To add a claret jug to his collection, Spieth overcame bogeys on three of his first four holes Sunday at Royal Birkdale. So disturbed was Spieth that he nearly aced the next hole, then canned a serpentine 40-foot putt for eagle on No. 15.
