Cody Bellinger went 3-for-5 with a pair of two-run home runs and four total RBI in Sunday's 12-6 win over the Rockies.

The Rockies worked their way out to a 5-0 lead heading into the bottom of the third before the Dodgers made their offensive presence felt against Tyler Anderson. Following a two-run home run by Kike Hernandez, Bellinger crunched a two-run shot of his own to draw the team to within 5-4. They would keep that offensive momentum going as the game progressed, with Bellinger coming through for yet another two-run shot in the eighth inning. The young phenom is hitting a sparkling .274/.342/.679 with 24 homers and 55 RBI in just 57 games played. He has 11 extra-base hits (including six home runs) in his last nine games.

Enrique Hernandez went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Sunday's win over the Rockies.

Hernandez connected for a two-run homer off Tyler Anderson with one out in the third inning. The long ball was his eighth of the season. He has gone yard in two of the last four games and sports a .233/.315/.503 triple-slash in 68 games overall.
Jun 25 - 9:00 PM

Brandon McCarthy surrendered five runs (four earned) on four hits over three innings while taking a no-decision in Sunday's win over the Rockies.

McCarthy allowed three runs in the second inning and two more in the third. He struck out two and walked four on the afternoon. Up next on the docket, a road date with the Padres. He will carry a 3.25 ERA and 1.11 WHIP into that one as he looks to bounce back from Sunday's shaky affair.

Yasiel Puig is not in Sunday's lineup due to a nagging hamstring issue.

Puig has often had hamstring issues during his career, but Dodgers manager Dave Roberts insisted that this one isn't a major concern. "It's not serious," Roberts said. Cody Bellinger will handle right field Sunday, with Logan Forsythe sliding over to first base and Austin Barnes getting a start at second base.
Jun 25 - 2:57 PM

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said Sunday that Corey Seager (hamstring) "feels considerably better" and could be available off the bench.

There had been some speculation that Seager might be placed on the disabled list with a hamstring injury he suffered Friday, but it doesn't appear it will come to that. The star shortstop will miss a second straight start but it sounds like he could return to the lineup relatively soon.
Jun 25 - 2:20 PM

Dodgers recalled INF/OF Mike Freeman from Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Freeman has just two hits in 30 at-bats in a couple stints in the majors this season. He'll back up at several positions.
Jun 25 - 2:16 PM

Dodgers placed OF Franklin Gutierrez on the 10-day disabled list with ankylosis spondylitis.

It's something Gutierrez has dealt with before and he just hasn't been feeling well enough to play. Mike Freeman has replaced him on the roster.
Jun 25 - 2:15 PM

David Vassegh 570 AM in Los Angeles writes that the "indication" is that the Dodgers will place Corey Seager (hamstring) on the disabled list Sunday or Monday.

Seager strained his right hamstring on Friday. It's considered a Grade 1 strain and doesn't look like a long-term ailment, but it appears the Dodgers intend to play things safely here. Mike Freeman has been added to the Dodgers' taxi squad and looks like Seager's replacement on the roster.

Cody Bellinger took the collar in Saturday's game against the Rockies, stopping a nine-game hitting streak.

It's a rarity when Bellinger doesn't hit a home run, let alone reach base at all. That's how high the rookie has set the bar. He is still hitting .317 (13-for-41) with nine runs scored, five homers and 12 RBI over the past 10 outings.
Jun 25 - 3:08 AM

Yasmani Grandal finished with a single, double and a run scored across four at-bats in Saturday's win against the Rockies.

Grandal has hit safely in each of his past five games, and he has three consecutive multi-hit efforts. He is a career .242 hitter, so his .272 mark overall on the season is the biggest surprise of all of his offensive stats to date.
Jun 25 - 3:06 AM

Justin Turner was hitless in two at-bats with three walks and a run scored in Saturday's win against Colorado.

Turner's average has tumbled from .399 to .388 over the past four games, although he has a three-hit game during the span. He has also scored at least one run in seven straight games. He didn't get aboard via hit on Saturday, but he was still very productive with the three walks. That's now 21 walks and just 25 strikeouts across 188 at-bats this season.
Jun 25 - 3:03 AM

Clayton Kershaw allowed just three singles, a double and a walk over six scoreless innings while striking out eight Colorado batters in a win Saturday.

Kershaw has been winning on a regular basis, but he has also been serving up plenty of long balls lately. Saturday's start was his first outing since May 23 where he did not have one of his pitches leave the year. He'll look to keep it rolling in Saturday's road game in San Diego.
Jun 25 - 3:00 AM

Kenta Maeda will start Tuesday against the Angels.

The Dodgers will move all of their starters back a day. Maeda has spent the better part of a month see-sawing between the bullpen and the starting rotation. The right-hander sports a mediocre 4.87 ERA in his 11 starts this year.
Jun 24 - 8:36 PM

Corey Seager (hamstring) is not in the Dodgers' lineup Saturday against the Rockies.

Seager will get the night off after leaving Friday's game with a right hamstring injury. His MRI confirmed a Grade 1 strain, but the Dodgers are still calling him day-to-day. Enrique Hernandez will fill in at shortstop and bat eighth against right-hander Tyler Chatwood.
Jun 24 - 7:37 PM

Alex Wood pitched six innings and allowed one run and three hits Friday in a victory over the Rockies.

It was a surprise to see Wood hit for himself in the bottom of the sixth, but he didn't come back out for the seventh after 98 pitches. That's actually a season-high pitch count for him this year, as the Dodgers have tried to be very careful with him after he opened the season in the pen. He's 8-0 with a 1.86 ERA.
