Tuesday Chris Taylor returned to the lineup after missing two games with a sore wrist, and he hit a two-run homer while playing excellent third base.

Mookie Betts led off the game with his fifth homer. To cap off a five-run seventh inning, Gavin Lux hit his first grand slam. Yoshi Tsutsugo made his Dodger debut and received two walks. Albert Pujols played first base again but exited early after being hit on the elbow.
