Mi­ami 3, Dodgers 2

Los Angeles Times - - SPORTS - —Dy­lan Her­nan­dez

KEY MO­MENT: Field­ing a sin­gle by Adeiny Hechavar­ria, right fielder An­dre Ethier tried to throw out Chris­tian Yelich, who was run­ning from first base to third. How­ever, Ethier’s throw ended up in a cam­era well next to the Mar­lins dugout, al­low­ing Yelich to score for a 1-1 tie. Hechavar­ria ended up at third base on the play and scored on a wild pitch in the next at-bat to move the Mar­lins in front, 2-1. The Mar­lins led for the re­main­der of the game. Ethier’s er­ror was the first of two made by the Dodgers, who hadn’t made an er­ror in their pre­vi­ous 13 games. Their er­ror­less streak was an all-time fran­chise record.

AT THE PLATE: Justin Turner hit his 11th home run, in the first in­ning. The Dodgers scored in the fourth in­ning when when Adrian Gon­za­lez sin­gled in Howie Ken­drick to cut the Dodgers’ deficit to 3-1. Starter Tom Koehler lim­ited the Dodgers to six hits over seven in­nings.

ON THE MOUND: Clay­ton Ker­shaw is on a three-start los­ing streak, the long­est of his ca­reer. He gave up only one earned run over seven in­nings. His record dropped to 5-6.

ON THE LINEUP CARD: Yasiel Puig will re­turn to the Dodgers’ start­ing lineup Sun­day for the se­ries fi­nale, Man­ager Don Mat­tingly said. Puig played as a re­serve in the se­ries opener Fri­day night and could have started Satur­day, but Mat­tingly de­cided against it. The game Satur­day was the fourth in a row that Puig didn’t start be­cause of a rup­tured cal­lus on his left hand. “I knew we had a day game to­mor­row,” Mat­tingly said. “I fig­ured we’re play­ing OK. Give him one more day. This thing should be gone by then, where it’s to­tal free­dom.”

MED­I­CAL RE­PORT: Left-han­der Paco Ro­driguez will un­dergo arthro­scopic surgery Thurs­day to re­move loose bod­ies from the back of his throw­ing el­bow, the Dodgers an­nounced. Ro­driguez will be side­lined eight to 10 weeks. Ro­driguez has been on the dis­abled list since May 30. He has pitched in 10 games for the Dodgers this sea­son, post­ing a 2.61 earned-run av­er­age. Ro­driguez re­cently pitched in four mi­nor league games as part of a re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion as­sign­ment. He ex­pe­ri­enced dis­com­fort in his last game, which was Tues­day. “It was kind of back to those same feel­ings of not be­ing able to let it go,” Mat­tingly said.

UP NEXT: Zack Greinke (5-2, 1.70 ERA) will face the Mar­lins and Jose Urena (1-3, 4.34) on Sun­day at 10 a.m. PDT at Mar­lins Park. TV: Sport­sNet LA; Ra­dio: 570, 1020.
