Dodgers top Brewers in Machado's debut

The Los Angeles Dodgers edged the Milwaukee Brewers 6-4 as Manny Machado made his debut.

Los Angeles acquired Machado from the Baltimore Orioles in exchange for five prospects during the MLB All-Star break.

Machado batted second and tallied two hits in his Dodgers debut on Friday, while he also walked twice at Miller Park.

The Brewers trailed 3-2 heading into the ninth inning. But, Los Angeles extended their lead on a three-run home run by Enrique Hernandez.

Milwaukee outfielder Christian Yelich drove in two runs with a triple in the bottom of the frame before Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen struck out Jesus Aguilar to end the game.

Dodgers starter Rich Hill allowed one run in six innings to pick up the win for Los Angeles. The Brewers bullpen combined to surrender five runs in three innings pitched.

The win moved the Dodgers to 54-43 for the season, while the Brewers fell to 55-44.

 

CARPENTER STARS IN CARDS ROUT

Matt Carpenter went five for five, hit three home runs and tallied seven RBIs in the St Louis Cardinals' 18-5 win over the Chicago Cubs.

San Francisco Giants starter Dereck Rodriguez allowed just three hits and one run against the Oakland Athletics. He also struck out five in the 5-1 victory.

 

GIVENS GENEROUS IN ORIOLES LOSS

Orioles reliever Mychal Givens allowed three hits and two runs in his one inning of work against the Toronto Blue Jays, who topped Baltimore 8-7 in extra innings.

Diego Castillo surrendered two runs and recorded just one out in the Tampa Rays' 6-5 loss to the Miami Marlins.
