Darvish rocked for 3 homers in home debut for Dodgers

He got a no-decision in his debut against Kansas City, allowing two runs and four hits in six innings. On the next batter, Wood threw a breaking pitch that got away from catcher Tucker Barnhart for the game victor.

The honorary member of the Dodgers "Slug Club", Kiké Hernandez, hit his 11 home run of the season when he tied the game off Rodon in the bottom half of the fourth inning.

Los Angeles took one more step toward that direction on Tuesday breaking a tie with five runs in the eighth inning after two were out to defeat the Chicago White Sox.

Leury Garcia got the long ball parade started when he hit a first-pitch fastball from Darvish just inside the right-field foul pole for a leadoff home run.

His previous low was three strikeouts in a game on May 27, 2012 against the Toronto Blue Jays. He was 2-for-2 with two home runs against the White Sox in Chicago earlier this season. Then Gordon delivered his second run-scoring single of the series finale. He is 2-0 with a 3.42 ERA in 15 career games against the Tigers and has held them to a.230 average.

At Marlins Park in Miami, Ichiro Suzuki connected for his 20th pinch-hit this season and drove in a run to contribute to the Miami Marlins' 8-1 win over the San Francisco Giants.

Rick Renteria's team had the chance to do that again as the headed out west to play the Dodgers, the best team in the Major League Baseball who came into Tuesday's contest 49 games over.500. He was hit under his left arm by a 91-mph pitch in the second inning, tapped out to the pitcher in the fourth, grounded out to short with the bases loaded to end the fifth and singled in the eighth.

NOTES: Dodgers LHP Clayton Kershaw (back) threw a 38-pitch, two-inning simulated game Wednesday. The Angels won for the seventh time in eight games.

Darvish was unable to limit the damage as he allowed the go-ahead home run to Jose Abreu in the top of the sixth inning.

Manny Pina hit a two-run homer in the eighth inning to lift the Milwaukee Brewers to 7-6 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates. Anderson has five home runs and 11 RBIs in his past 12 games.
