The Dodgers were manhandled by the Diamondbacks for the second time in two nights. The 11-5 loss came a day after a 13-5 drubbing. Taking it on the chin Saturday was Dodgers starter Kenta Maeda, who gave up four home runs, two more than he had ever given up in a major league game. Maeda's ERA is now a whopping 8.05. David Peralta had a Diamondbacks' record four doubles.

The Orioles have hit 23 homers this season compared to the Red Sox's eight. Boston didn't seek retaliation for Manny Machado's high slide into Dustin Pedroia one night earlier.
