Watch (or not): unbelievable catch robs Diamondbacks of home run

Watch (or not): unbelievable catch robs Diamondbacks of home run”

"He's close", Roberts said. "But I think as an organization it's best for him and best for all of us to err on the side of caution".

Except Lamb won this day.

"I definitely knew it wasn't as bad as a year ago", he said, referring to the mild disc herniation that sidelined him for 75 days last season. "And I want people to cheer for the Diamondbacks". After what was looking to be a game of inches, a grand slam off the bat of Jake Lamb in the bottom of the 7th broke the game wide open.

"We're playing good baseball".

The Dodgers lost for just the fourth time in 29 games since July 4. This loss doesn't hurt the Dodgers' lead much as it drops to 15 games.

That loss a month ago completed a three-game sweep of one-run Arizona losses in the series. "We've got to get ready to play on Tuesday". "I know it motivates me".

David Hernandez (1-0) struck out the only batter he faced in the seventh inning for his first victory since rejoining the D-backs at the trade deadline. Exactly half his homers have come from the seventh inning on. "It was the second one of the AB".

"For the most part, I've had a few days off but pretty much have been throwing the whole time minus those first few days (after the injury)". He is no going to let me get by on two of them. (I'm) going to have to simulate that at some point, go through the whole bullpen, sim game, rehab, all that stuff.

Lamb, hitting.143 in 91 at-bats against left-handed pitchers this season, yanked an outside slider off the right field foul pole against lefty Tony Watson (5-4) to overcome a 3-2 deficit.

Yasiel Puig robbed J.D. Martinez of what would have been a game-tying home run with a soaring grab above the right field fence in the sixth inning.

Archie Bradley pitched a scoreless eighth inning and Fernando Rodney pitched the ninth for his 26th save.

"It was nothing disrespectful to the Dodgers", Bradley said. "When the MRI came back as good as it did, I wasn't as anxious". I want to win and I want our fans to be here to back us.

Umpire Joe West was to have worked the Dodgers-Diamondbacks series but was suspended for three games for comments he made about Texas third baseman Adrian Beltre.

Clayton Kershaw threw aggressively off flat ground on Tuesday but Los Angeles manager Dave Roberts says the team will take a cautious approach to the Dodgers' ace's return to the rotation.

"How many wins is that?" the unidentified player said. There's still no official timetable for his return despite the improved outlook following his Tuesday throwing session, though. Lovullo said Anthony Banda would make Ray's scheduled start against the Dodgers on Thursday.
