Francona feeling better, expected to manage Indians game

Miller served up a go-ahead solo home run to rookie Cody Bellinger to lead off the eighth inning and the Los Angeles Dodgers rolled from there, scoring four more times to beat Cleveland 7-5 in the opener of a three-game interleague series at Progressive Field.

Whether Cleveland manager Terry Francona will be in the dugout remains to be seen. Cleveland is 1-7 in interleague games this season, including 0-5 versus NL West teams Arizona and Colorado, while Los Angeles plays the AL for the first time.

The Indians are expected to issue an update on Francona's condition before game time. And in the ninth, Bellinger struck again in what proved to be the decisive blow, blasting a three-run home run off Boone Logan that put the game out of reach. Bellinger goes into Wednesday's game having hit.500 (6-for-12), with five home runs and eight RBIs in his last three games.

Following Corey Seager's National League Rookie of the Year campaign, the Dodgers have unleashed Bellinger onto the scene.

In Anaheim, New York pitcher CC Sabathia exited early with a strained left hamstring, and Eric Young Jr. rallied Los Angeles to an 11-inning victory that snapped the Yankees' six-game winning streak.

If that matchup occurs, when the weather will predictably be about 40 degrees cooler than the balmy 86 degrees that settled around Progressive Field on June 13, the Indians will need more fire than they showed in front of a crowd of 22,171. This was Bellinger's fourth multi-dinger game, making him the first rookie ever to achieve that feat in his first 50 games.

Although the Indians did not have an immediate response for the early production from Los Angeles, they got a run back off of Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw in the bottom of the third inning.

Six days after his big-league debut, Faria (2-0) became the third Tampa pitcher all-time to win his first two career games, joining Jeremy Hellickson and Joe Kennedy.

In Minneapolis, Eddie Rosario hit three home runs and drove in five runs and the Twins set a franchise record with 28 hits while batting around in two different innings.

Wednesday will be Kluber's second career start against the Dodgers. Gerrit Cole (4-6) broke out of a funk to allow just one run in seven strong innings. LAD starter Clayton Kershaw gave up a pair of runs on six hits and two BB before Chris Hatcher allowed three runs in the 9th.

"I was 3-0 to a couple guys".

"Obviously I didn't do my part", said Miller, who struck out the final batter of the sixth, then retired the side in order in the seventh before Bellinger beat him in the ninth. His 2.36 ERA in 278 starts is the lowest among hurlers with more than 1,500 innings pitched since 1920.

McCarthy is 0-2 in his last two starts, despite a 3.27 ERA.
