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.

Albert Pujols hit his 609th career HR Friday, tying Sammy Sosa for 8th-most all time. He also ties Sosa for most HR by a player born outside the 50 states.

Aaron Judge has tied the single-season MLB record with his 35th consecutive game with at least one strikeout.

Bases loaded for Aaron Judge (again.)

Here's the paradox with Joe Kelly: Entering tonight, he had thrown 444 fastballs that averaged 99.32 mph, but nevertheless got only 47 swing-and-misses, according to Brooks Baseball. Gary Sanchez's game-tying homer came on a 99-mph heater.

Joe Kelly hit triple digits six times in that seven-pitch at-bat against Aaron Judge, including 100 on the grounder to short that got him out and ended the Yankees' bases-loaded threat. Red Sox lead, 3-2, in the middle of the sixth inning.

A decent mix of cheers and boos ahead of Giancarlo Stanton's first at-bat at Citi Field. Some loud ohhhs and ahhhs when the Marlins RF made contact for the first time (a hard foul ball to the stands high behind the first-base dugout), too. After working the count to 3-2, Stanton walked. This is his first game since his six-game home run streak came to an end Wednesday.

Back spasms for Drew Pomeranz, according to the Red Sox.

Scott Lauber ESPN Staff Writer 

Drew Pomeranz, who has been Red Sox's second-best starting pitcher, is leaving the game with an apparent lower body injury in the top of the fourth inning. Awaiting word on exact nature of the injury. Pomeranz threw two warmup pitches and was unable to continue.

Clearly shaken by Detroit's two-run first, the Dodgers bounce back with a four-run second off Jordan Zimmerman. Here's great news for the 29 teams chasing LA: Fresh off a long DL stay because of back trouble, Adrian Gonzalez doubled and scored in his Major League first plate appearance since June 11.

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.

As the Marlins and Mets wait through a rain delay, let's take a look from the section where Aaron Judge homered Wednesday, 469 feet away.

Mother Nature has been kind so far to the Yankees and Red Sox. First pitch at Fenway Park on time tonight under continued threat of thunderstorms in the Boston area.

Love this from Marlins manager Don Mattingly on Giancarlo Stanton's HRs: "He's got 44 now. If he fell asleep the rest of the year he's going to hit 50."

No on-field batting practice at Citi Field ahead of tonight's Marlins/Mets game. There's a threat of rain -- and maybe the threat of a Giancarlo Stanton upper-deck blast.

When Theo Epstein first left, John Henry wondered aloud if he was fit to own the Red Sox. I think he's answered that question
