Twins close to acquiring left-hander Jaime Garcia from Braves

Tampa Bay Rays second baseman Brad Miller gets a hug from right fielder Steven Souza Jr. after his solo home run in the fourth inning of the game between the Texas Rangers and the Tampa Bay Rays at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg Fla. on Frid

Garcia has never pitched more than 194 innings in a season, and that was in 2011, when he was 24. Kershaw, who had struck out two with a walk, had not allowed a hit before leaving with an apparent injury.

The Dodgers hit three home runs to help Hill's cause and snapped a two-game slide after winning 11 in a row. They had won 31 of their last 35 to build baseball's best record (66-30).

"The walk and home run by Suzuki put them in a good spot", Roberts said. That's a good offensive club.

This season's Dodgers team seems like it could be the best one over the past several years and the team that could get over the hump. "I expect blinding betting on LA in every game moving forward will be a money-losing strategy".

The win continued Rich Hill's "less-is-more" revival.

Justin Turner missed the game with a respitatory infection that has spread like wildfire around the Dodgers clubhouse.

But few expected Wood and the Dodgers to fall to earth so quickly.

Grandal broke for home, Teheran came off the mound to field the ball and, making the only play he could, threw from foul territory to catcher Tyler Flowers ahead of Grandal.

"I looked at the last second to see if anyone was coming and I heard Yasmani Grandal yelling my name, " Wood said.

Brandon McCarthy will take the ball against the Braves Thursday night. 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.

The Braves jumped all over Wood in the first inning. "It hit the glove, the ball flied out, it's just baseball", Flowers said of the play at the plate. Before Friday's abnormal performance, Wood had not given up more than 1 run in his previous 5 starts.

The Dodgers have reportedly been interested in Texas Rangers ace Yu Darvish as the trade deadline nears. Unfortunately, Friday evening was a reminder that Wood is, in fact, still human. "He gave us a great start". "Woody will be fine". Freddie Freeman started the inning with a home run.

Utley made it 2-0 by leading off the third with his sixth home run. His seventh-inning triple to dead center field drove in Cody Bellinger with the Dodgers' second run.

Garcia earns $12 million this season, and is still owed roughly $4.7 million for the remaining two months.

That's when Joc Pederson made the mistake of hitting a ball hard.

Wood (11-1) got knocked around by his former team.

"It's a weird feeling", manager Dave Roberts said. "We do pride ourselves on playing clean baseball".

The same way people don't call the 2016 Golden State Warriors, who won a record 73 games, one of the greatest teams in the National Basketball Association because they didn't win it all. This is one of those games.
