The Dodgers win again, this time overcoming an early 2-0 deficit and rolling to a no-sweat 8-5 win over the Detroit Tigers. Chris Taylor had four hits, Corey Seager drove in three runs and Logan Forsythe scored three. The big news was the return of Adrian Gonzalez, who doubled in his first plate appearance since June 11. Gonzalez was activated on Friday from the 60-day DL, where he landed because of persistent back trouble.

According to ESPN Stats & Info, Miguel Cabrera's first-inning double was No. 543 on his career, tying him with Tony Gwynn for 34th all-time. Next up: Derek Jeter had 544. There is probably a Marlins tie-in there somewhere.

The Tigers grab a quick 2-0 lead on Rich Hill and the Dodgers. Justin Upton's double off the wall scored the first run. On that day play, Joc Pederson leaped at the fence as if to rob a home run but the ball wasn't actually headed out of the yard. Oops. Nearly bonked Pederson on the head. Miguel Cabrera followed with an RBI double.

ROOKIE REPORT: Third-round offensive lineman Dan Feeney continues to get a handful of snaps with the starters at right guard, along with playing center with the second unit. "I did all right," said Feeney, when asked how he played against the Seattle Seahawks last week. "There's still a bunch of stuff I have to work on. But for the first preseason game I think I did all right." Chargers head coach Anthony Lynn said Feeney remains in a battle for the starting right guard job with Kenny Wiggins. Undrafted rookie tight end Sean Culkin has looked comfortable as a blocker at H-back and catching the ball lined up in the slot. Lynn noted that undrafted rookie receiver Artavis Scott out of Clemson has made some plays in the passing game this week.
