Not only do the Dodgers lose their third straight four-game set to the Marlins, but they also have to forego three-time NL Cy Young Award winner Clayton Kershaw. The 33-year-old left-handed man was put on the 10-day injured list because of an inflammation of his left elbow.
Sandy León hit a leadoff single against Uceta and moved up to second place due to the sacrifice of Jazz Chisholm. Starling Marte was deliberately run and Uceta knocked out Magneuris Sierra before facing Aguilar.
Zack McKinstry scored a one-out solo homer in the ninth game against Miami Reliever Anthony Bender (1-0) to make up for it for the 6th all. Bender knocked out Mookie Betts and Gavin Lux after McKinstry’s Homer.
Garrett Cooper had his first career multi-home game for Miami with solo shots on the first and sixth.
The Dodgers lashed out, chasing Marlins starter Ross Detwiler with a five-run third that made up a 2-0 deficit. Justin Turner’s triple homer initiated the onslaught. Los Angeles also got solo blasts from AJ Pollock and Mookie Betts.
Detwiler, one of the left-handers of the Marlins, was called up for both teams in the bullpen game. He allowed five runs and six hits in 2 2/3 innings, striking three and leaving one.
Cooper gave Miami early on with a solo shot against Dodgers starter Jake Reed in the first. Cooper drove Reed’s slider down the midfield wall for his eighth homer of the season.

Sánchez hit his third homer, a solo shot against Los Angeles’s Mitch White, in the second.
Reed, who made his Major League debut on Tuesday, was overturned after one inning.
The game that led to the Marlins’ first round to their 2-1 win on Tuesday was originally viewed as a field mistake at Dodger’s shortstop Gavin Lux after a hard grounder from Jesús Aguilar who scored Starling Marte. After the game, the decision was overturned and Aguilar was credited with an RBI single.
RHP Cody Poteet (right knee sprained) and RHP John Curtiss (neck stiffness) continue their throwing programs.
