Ausmus calls out Boyd, staff: Get strikes, outs

Brad Ausmus said it's not "rocket science" as to why Matthew Boyd and the Tigers' pitchers are struggling: "You've got to throw strikes and you've got to get outs."

Dodgers don't scare Justin Verlander

Verlander allowed just two hits over eight innings to beat the 87-34 Dodgers on Sunday. The last pitcher to give up no more than two hits while throwing at least eight innings in a win over an opponent that was at least 50 games over .500 was the Expos' Bob Sebra over the 103-53 Mets on Sept. 30, 1986. The last pitcher to do that to beat a team at least 53 games over .500 was the St. Louis Browns' General Crowder against the 96-42 Philadelphia Athletics on Sept. 16, 1929. (Elias Sports Bureau)

Granderson smacks first HR as Dodger in loss

Curtis Granderson took former teammate Justin Verlander deep for his first home run as a member of the Dodgers, but the Tigers won 5-1 on Sunday.

Bradford Doolittle ESPN Staff Writer 

Apparently, when Justin Verlander is on, not even the Los Angeles Dodgers can beat him. Verlander held the rolling Dodgers to two hits over eight innings, one of which was a solo homer from Curtis Granderson. The Tigers beat LA 6-1, snapping the Dodgers' six-game winning streak.

Looks like the Tigers' Justin Verlander is done after eight dominant innings against the Dodgers. Los Angeles managed just two hits off of Verlander, including Curtis Granderson's solo homer in the sixth. Verlander struck out nine. Detroit leads 4-1 as we head to the bottom of the eighth.

Umps end protest of 'abusive player behavior'

Umpires on Sunday decided to remove the white wristbands they wore to protest what they called "abusive player behavior," and they will meet with MLB commissioner Rob Manfred.

The dual no-hitter thing is done, but we're left with a pretty good contest brewing between the Tigers and Dodgers. Curtis Granderson got LA on the board, homering off of his old pal Justin Verlander by hitting the right-field foul pole in the top of the sixth. Verlander just missed with a two-strike fastball on the previous pitch. It's 1-0 LA but the Tigers are threatening against Kenta Maeda in the bottom of the sixth.

Things are getting interesting in Detroit, where we've got not one but two no-hitters going. Detroit's Justin Verlander has allowed only Yasiel Puig's walk in the fifth, while the Dodgers' Kenta Maeda is perfect through five. Verlander has thrown 64 pitches; Maeda is at 57.

The Dodgers entered today with 87 wins already on the board. The most wins the Giants could possibly finish with is 87. In other words, the Giants will be eliminated from the NL West race with one more loss or one more LA win. It's Aug. 20! According to Elias, the last time a team was eliminated from its division race this early was 1998. The Giants have never been eliminated from NL West contention this early, dating back to 1969.

We've zipped through three innings already in Detroit. Eighteen up and eighteen down so far, thanks to three perfect frames apiece from Tigers starter Justin Verlander and Dodgers starter Kenta Maeda.

Another Dodgers injury note: Clayton Kershaw will throw a three-inning simulated game on Monday. If Kershaw's outing goes well, what's next? "Once he passes that marker right there, we'll see where he goes. It's probably going to be a start either with the (Double-A) Tulsa club or (Triple-A Oklahoma City) club." Kershaw has been on the DL since July 24 because of a lower back strain. The Dodgers have gone 18-3 since that time, so clearly the need for his return is desperate.

No surprises regarding the condition of the Dodgers' Cody Bellinger, who sprained his right ankle during Saturday's game. While it appeared that there was some slight swelling around the injury, manager Dave Roberts said, "He came out of it as good as expected. It was a mild strain and he'll be available to hit (today). We'll try to stay away from it but if an obvious spot comes up, we'll use him."

Bradford Doolittle ESPN Staff Writer 

The only thing that changes for the Dodgers from day to day is how they win, not whether they win. On Saturday, it was a 3-0 whitewashing of the Tigers. Hyun-Jin Ryu threw five scoreless innings and three relievers tacked on four more. In his first game for LA, Curtis Granderson went 0 for 4 but reached on an error and scored the game's first run. The Dodgers have won six straight, 21 of 24 and 52 of 61. Now at 53 games over .500, it's getting kind of ridiculous.
