A day after the Dodgers were held to one hit by the Cubs, they returned the favor with their own combined one-hitter. The Dodgers' 5-0 victory Tuesday countered the Cubs' 2-0 triumph Monday. Scott Kazmir pitched six scoreless and Corey Seager hit a three-run home run.

Tigers pitcher Anibal Sanchez, who entered tonight's game with a career-high ERA of 6.04, has another disastrous performance. The erratic starter lasted just three innings, giving up six runs on eight hits and three homers over the span of 64 pitches. Cannot see how the Tigers can afford to keep him in the rotation. Hasn't made any discernible progress, continues to leave team vulnerable every time he takes the mound. Seems a mental roadblock more than anything.

Kris Bryant is playing SS for the Cubs for the first time in his career as Joe Maddon pulled a double switch taking Addison Russell out of the game. This year alone Bryant has played LF, RF, 3b, 1b and now SS.

Dodgers reliever Joe Blanton stepped up with two scoreless innings in support of Scott Kazmir, who pitched six scoreless. In five two-inning outings this season, Blanton has given up just one run and it came Friday at New York. The Dodgers lead the Cubs 2-0 in the ninth inning.

Tigers pitcher Anibal Sanchez made a mechanical tweak in his most recent bullpen session, one that left him feeling good and the Tigers seemingly encouraged. Guessing that optimism is going out the window quickly. Sanchez has given up two homers in the first two innings; most recently, a three-run shot to Angels star Mike Trout. 5-2 LAA

Adrian Gonzalez keeps hitting on the road. His RBI single in the eighth inning gave the Dodgers a 1-0 lead over the Cubs. In five games of the Dodgers' current seven-game trip, he has 10 hits. His only hitless game was Monday during the Cubs' combined one-hitter.

Tigers manager Brad Ausmus rarely steps in to talk to hitters. Usually leaves that to hitting coaches Wally Joyner and David Newhan. But he felt it was time to approach the scuffling Justin Uptpn prior to Tuesday's game, when the two looked over video of previous years to pinpoint any issues. Not sure if that was a coincidence or not, but Upton smacks a solo shot to LF in second inning. His first HR in over a month.

Jake Arrieta is done after 7 scoreless innings against the Dodgers. He threw 107 pitches giving up 2 hits and four walks while striking out 8. His record will remain 9-0 while the Cubs are still attempting to keep a team streak of consecutive wins when he pitches intact. They've won 23 in a row when Arrieta takes the mound. It's 0-0 Top 8.

Nice night for Dodgers starter Scott Kazmir, who matched Jake Arrieta by allowing just one hit over six innings. The left-hander struck out seven while throwing 90 pitches. The Dodgers and Cubs are locked in a scoreless duel in the bottom of the seventh.
