Darvish: Return to Dodger Stadium is 'a big deal'

Dodger Stadium doesn't provide the best of memories for Chicago Cubs starter Yu Darvish, and he'll try to exorcise more than one demon when he takes the mound there on Saturday night against his old team.

Alden Gonzalez ESPN Staff Writer 

Chris Taylor was about to break this game open with a three-run double, but Albert Almora Jr. made a sensational catch up against the center-field fence, ending the seventh inning and keeping the Cubs' deficit at 2.

Turner tees off for 430-foot homer (0:18)

Alden Gonzalez ESPN Staff Writer 

Each of the Dodgers' last 13 runs have come on homers. They have two tonight, by Justin Turner and Matt Beaty, and the score is tied at 3 after three innings.

Alden Gonzalez ESPN Staff Writer 

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts spoke pregame about Yu Darvish, who will likely get booed in his Dodger Stadium return tomorrow. "I thought he had some really good moments with us, and people want to rest on Game 7 a lot, which was unfortunate, for all of us."

Clayton Kershaw was asked whether he looks at Jon Lester, four years older, as a model for how he could age. "I have a lot of respect for Jon and what he's done in this game," Kershaw said. "He's remained consistent and super healthy. He takes the ball every fifth day, he's always out there. He's a big man, too, He's a big, big man. It's impressive to see what he's doing. There's a lot of guys out there like that — Scherzer, Verlander. Guys that are, thankfully, a good bit older than me but they're still going strong. There's hope."

Seager's hammy strain milder than first thought

The Los Angeles Dodgers have placed shortstop Corey Seager on the injured list with what an MRI revealed to be between a Grade 1 and a Grade 2 strain of his left hamstring.

Alden Gonzalez ESPN Staff Writer 

Cody Bellinger, once again hearing the "MVP" chants, has his second home run of the night and his 22nd this season. He's three shy of the leader, Christian Yelich.

Alden Gonzalez ESPN Staff Writer 

David Freese is having the season of his life as a part-time player. He has 8 home runs and a 311/423/641 slash line in 50 games. His two-run shot off Jon Lester in the 5th gave the Dodgers a 6-3 lead.

Alden Gonzalez ESPN Staff Writer 

Cody Bellinger blasted his 21st home run of the year, and his first since May 28, to cut the Dodgers' deficit to 3-2 in the fifth inning. Bellinger had 6 HRs in 186 at-bats against lefties last year. This year: 8 in 83.

Alden Gonzalez ESPN Staff Writer 

Dodgers SS Corey Seager, on his Grade 1/2 hamstring strain: "It hurt pretty good. Unfortunately it did kind of catch really quickly. It would've been nice if it would've given me a little bit of a heads up, but it didn't. We are where we are. The worst part about these is it's so hard to put a timetable on them. It could feel really good tomorrow and it gets quicker, or it could linger for a while."

Alden Gonzalez ESPN Staff Writer 

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said Corey Seager's MRI results were "maybe a tick better" than the team initially thought, but Seager is still very sore. And it'll probably be at least a week before that calms down and he can begin the rehab process.

Alden Gonzalez ESPN Staff Writer 

Dodgers SS Corey Seager has officially been placed on the injured list, but it appears his hamstring strain isn't as bad as the team initially feared. It's between a Grade 1 and a Grade 2, which means he could, theoretically, come back before 4-6 weeks. Dodgers will take it day by day.
