Yu Darvish Left vs. White Sox with Back Tightness, Removed as Precaution

Thursday’s Sports Minute Dodgers take care of Sox

The last time a Dodgers team was this many games over.500 was in 1953, when four future Hall of Famers - catcher Roy Campanella, shortstop Pee Wee Reese, left fielder Jackie Robinson and center fielder Duke Snider - were playing for the Brooklyn Dodgers.

The rest of the National League West may not be as happy about the Dodgers' victory.

Yu Darvish will also be making his semi-long awaited Dodger Stadium debut tonight, on his 31st birthday. He allowed a hit to Jacob Turner and was lifted for Aaron Bummer, who allowed Los Angeles to load the bases before he was taken out for Jake Petricka.

He left the game with the Dodgers trailing 3-2 after surrendering a solo home run to White Sox first baseman Jose Abreu in the sixth.

Meanwhile in New York, Yankees manager Joe Girardi revealed that Masahiro Tanaka is scheduled to throw a bullpen session on Thursday and start in one of the three-game series against the Detroit Tigers starting next Tuesday if all goes well.

All four runs for the White Sox came via the solo home run. They broke open a 1-1 game with five runs in the eighth - all with two outs. Ross Stripling (2-4) earned the win for pitching a ideal ninth. Stroman allowed two runs and six hits to beat the Rays for the first time in five career meetings at Rogers Centre. He walked four and struck out four.

It was the first time in franchise history the White Sox homered in consecutive games on the first pitch.

Manny Pina hit a two-run homer in the eighth inning to lift the Milwaukee Brewers to 7-6 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Ace Clayton Kershaw remains on the disabled list with a back injury of his own; he pitched a two-inning simulated game Wednesday, though.

Tim Anderson got things off to a positive start when he led off the game with his 14th homer of the season and his fifth in what has been a strong month of August.
