Kershaw extends win streak as Dodgers take down Indians

It’s not clear who Yasiel Puig was directing the two birds

For the second straight night, Miller allowed a go-ahead solo home run in the eighth inning and for the second straight night it led to an Indians loss as Los Angeles secured the interleague series with a 6-4 victory at Progressive Field on Wednesday. Three of the Dodgers' seven runs came in the ninth, when Boone Logan - pitching for the first time in almost a week - allowed Cody Bellinger's second run of the evening. The oft-injured veteran has served up one home run in 28 2/3 innings since returning from a shoulder ailment in May. Kenley Jansen relieved Hatcher and picked up his 12th save by striking out Jason Kipnis to end the game.

RHP Corey Kluber (5-2, 4.38) is a flawless 2-0 with a 2.25 ERA in two starts this month, proving his full recovery from a lower back strain in early May.

Daniel Robertson hit his first major league home run for Cleveland with two outs in the ninth, a three-run shot off Chris Hatcher.

Los Angeles Dodgers starting pitcher Clayton Kershaw winds up during the first inning of the team's baseball game against the Cleveland Indians, Tuesday, June 13, 2017, in Cleveland.

The Indians and Dodgers came into the series with the two lowest bullpen ERAs in baseball.

After a video review, the call was overturned. Fifteen of the 22 runs scored in this series have been charged to relievers.

After crossing home plate following his second-inning drive, Puig raised both middle fingers in the direction of fans seated in the dugout suites located on field level at Progressive Field. On Wednesday, the Dodgers scored four times in the eighth inning on the way to a 6-4 win.

Over seven innings of work, Kluber scattered four hits and one walk and struck out 10 batters. Following that, Miller allowed a single to Yasmani Grandal and was taken out of the game and forced to go live life with an ERA over 0.50. Kluber retired Logan Forsythe on a flyout to shallow right field. Respecting Yasiel Puig's arm, Zimmer held at third.

Grandal followed with a double-play ball to Lindor at shortstop, but second baseman Erik Gonzalez was off the base on the relay and only got one out at first.

Jose Abreu went 3-for-4 and Avisail Garcia had a two-run double as Chicago won its second straight after dropping nine of 11.

The opposing pitching staff can not make a mistake when Kershaw is on the hill for the Dodgers, and Indians' reliever Bryan Shaw did.
