Eddie Rosario returned to the Minnesota Twins‘ lineup and homered in a 10-6 win Friday night but the team will need to wait at least a little bit longer before getting third baseman Miguel Sano back in action.Sano will undergo “a few more tests” on his ailing left knee Melky Cabrera Jersey , according to manager Paul Molitor, whose team continues a three-game series with the Kansas City Royals on Saturday.He’s been out since bruising the leg while sliding into second Tuesday night in Houston. There was hope that he’d return for the series opener Friday but that plan was scratched when the pain hadn’t subsided.Article continues below ...“I was a little quick to speak about how he was the day after the injury,” Molitor told MLB.com Friday. “He’s still a little sore. I was of the mindset it would be sooner than later, and I don’t think it’s still too far out there. We’re just running a few more tests to make sure he’s going to be OK and there’s nothing that’s going to linger that we might have missed from the initial diagnosis.”The Twins will also be without first baseman Tyler Austin on Saturday.Austin’s back has been bothering him since Wednesday when he slipped and fell near the dugout while chasing down a pop fly.“His back is still feeling the symptoms there so we’re trying to go slowly and be patient as far as when we’re going to get him back out to play,” Molitor said. “He’s had some issues before. Nothing major that I know of. I just know he’s been dealing with working on keeping that back as flexible as he can and as available on a day-to-day basis as he can.”Right-hander Jose Berrios gets the ball Saturday night, looking to break out of a late-season slump.He hasn’t worked past the fifth inning in any of his last five starts and has a 6.65 ERA during that stretch. Berrios lasted only four innings his last time out, allowing five runs on five hits — including three home runs — while walking three and striking out eight in a 7-4 Minnesota loss to the Rangers last Saturday.“Realistically, he’s fighting it a little bit,” Twins manager Paul Molitor said. “I don’t know if it’s a combination of it getting late or a couple of other things, but it just hasn’t been going very well.”Saturday will mark his eighth career start and third of the season against the Royals, who hand the ball to right-hander Jorge Lopez.Lopez has been on a bit of a roller coaster since coming to the Royals as part of the trade that sent third baseman Mike Moustakas to Milwaukee at the deadline. Through four starts for Kansas City, he’s gone 1-3 with a 5.66 ERA but while he’s given up a combined 11 runs in two of those starts he’s also spun a pair of one-run outings including his last time out when he held the Orioles to a run on five hits while striking out eight without a walk over seven innings of work.“(His) command was good http://www.whitesoxfanproshop.com/authentic-jeff-keppinger-jersey ,” Royals manager Ned Yost said. “But for me, he really utilized his fastball, pitched off his fastball, established his fastball. And he pitched off it with his slider, changeup and curveball. But the key was establishing his fastball first. He was filling up the zone and staying on the attack. Outstanding start for him.”Lopez will be facing the Twins for the first time in his career. LOS ANGELES (AP) It took 56 years for Dodger Stadium to see a game like this.Cody Bellinger hit a grand slam, Joc Pederson and Yasiel Puig hit two homers each, and the Los Angeles Dodgers beat the Milwaukee Brewers 21-5 on Thursday night.Brian Dozier and Justin Turner also went deep as Los Angeles finished with its highest scoring total at Dodger Stadium. The Dodgers hit a season high-tying seven homers, and also set season highs for runs in a game, and in an inning when they had nine in the seventh.”That is more indicative of our club offensively,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said. ”You’re going to have spells where you don’t have hits and there will be bad at-bats when guys pitch well, but the last couple of nights, with a walk-off win (Wednesday) Joe Crede Jersey , that can give you a shot in the arm and hopefully it continues.”Clayton Kershaw (5-5) gave up two runs and five hits over six innings, winning his second consecutive start. He also won for the fourth time in his last six outings, while striking out seven with two walks.Christian Yelich and Jesus Augilar each hit home runs for the Brewers, who lost for just the fifth time in 13 games. Yelich’s home run off Kershaw was his 16th. Aguilar, who went deep against Dodgers reliever Erik Goeddel, hit his 26th.But this game was all about the Dodgers’ offense. The starting outfield of Pederson, Bellinger and Puig each had four RBIs. Acording to STATS LLC, the only other time that happened was in 1964, when the Milwaukee Braves’ trio of Hank Aaron, Rico Carty and Lee Maye did it.Bellinger snapped an 0-for-13 slide when he lifted a 0-1 pitch from Brewers starter Jhoulys Chacin off the right-field foul pole for his 18th of the season. It was his second grand slam this season and third of his two-year career.”It was fun,” Bellinger said. ”You never expect to score that many runs, but when you do http://www.whitesoxfanproshop.com/authentic-james-shields-jersey , you just try to take advantage of it at the plate and I think we did a good job of that today.”Chacin (10-4) gave up nine runs and five hits with four walks over 4 1/3 innings. It was the right-hander’s worst outing since giving up eight runs over 4 1/3 innings June 24 at home against the St. Louis Cardinals.”They have a good lineup,” Chacin said. ”I feel like they always have a good lineup and they have good guys like (Manny) Machado and Dozier. They’re going to be the team to beat in the National League and hopefully we play against them again.”Infielder Hernan Perez and catcher Erik Kratz each made his third appearance on the mound for the Brewers.Pederson started the Dodgers’ home-run binge when he led off the game with a drive deep into the seats in right field. It was the seventh leadoff home run of his career, with four of those coming this year. He added a three-run shot in the seventh to give him 16 on the season.Puig had a solo shot down the left-field line in the fourth inning and a two-run shot in the seventh to give him 14 on the season. Dozier, who was acquired from Minnesota at Tuesday’s trade deadline, hit a three-run shot to left field in the fifth, his 18th. It was Dozier’s second home run in two starts with the Dodgers.Turner hit his sixth home run after coming off the 10-day disabled list earlier Thursday. He had been out since July 22 with a strained right groin.The Dodgers scored double-digit runs for the second time in the second half, both against the Brewers. It was the 10th time this season the Dodgers have scored 10 or more runs in a game.The Dodgers won the season series against the Brewers 4-3 after splitting the four-game series at home.DODGERS NOT FOOLEDDespite crushing the Brewers on Thursday, the Dodgers continued the theme postgame that Milwaukee is a team they could see in the postseason.Kershaw admitted he wasn’t at his best despite earning the victory over six innings, and said a relentless Brewers offense was part of the reason.”One of these days, maybe in the payoffs, I’ll figure out how to get Yelich out,” Kershaw said. ”He’s swinging the bat unbelievably right now and fortunately our bats were a little bit hotter tonight.”Kershaw was asked about how tough the Brewers lineup would be in October.”All the way up and down the (Brewers) lineup (there are) a lot of guys are swinging the bats Ron Santo Jersey ,” Kershaw said.AX MAN COMINGThe Dodgers are expected to add new reliever John Axford to the active roster Friday for the start of a three-game series against the Houston Astros. The Dodgers acquired the right-hander at Tuesday’s trade deadline.TRAINER’S ROOMBrewers: RHP Zach Davies (rotator cuff inflammation), who has been out since the start of June, will have at least two more minor league rehab starts before he returns to the Brewers’ rotation.Dodgers: 2B Chase Utley went on the 10-day disabled list because of left wrist inflammation opening a roster spot for Turner (right groin strain), who was reinstated to the active roster. … LHP Hyun-Jin Ryu (strained left groin) went four scoreless innings, giving up two hits, in a rehab start for Single-A Rancho Cucamonga. … LHP Zach Rosscup (left middle finger inflammation) pitched one scoreless inning in a rehab outing also at Rancho Cucamonga.UP NEXTBrewers: RHP Junior Guerra (6-7, 3.43 ERA) will take the mound at home on Friday in for the start of a three-game series against the Colorado Rockies.Dodgers: LHP Alex Wood (7-5, 3.68) starts the opener of a three-game series against the Astros.—
