    导出博客文章LOS ANGELES -- Dodgers rookies Ross Stripling and Grant Dayton got to face David Ortiz on Saturday when the Red Sox designated hitter made a rare start in the field in an NL park. Cheap Yuli Gurriel Jersey . It turned out to be a special experience for both pitchers.Stripling and three relievers combined on a five-hitter and held Ortiz hitless in three at-bats while Los Angeles beat Boston 3-0.Ortiz made his first start this season at first base and had two nice catches, but didnt do much at the plate.Stripling got Ortiz to ground out with two men on in the first inning, and then got him to fly out to end the third.That will be something I look back on and really remember, Stripling said. To think the legacy that he has and the year hes having, to get him out in a big jam in the first and to get him out again, thats pretty cool.Stripling (3-3) pitched five innings after being called up from the minors when pitcher Bud Norris was put on the disabled list.Making his first start for the Dodgers since May 19, he gave up hits to the first two batters and loaded the bases in the first inning. He retired Sandy Leon on a soft grounder back to the mound to end the inning.That was probably the biggest pitch I threw all day, looking back, Stripling said. I threw a 3-2 changeup after a 2-2 changeup ... and was lucky I fooled him a little bit.Stripling settled down after the rough start to retire 15 of the last 18 hitters he faced, allowing four hits and a walk and striking out four.Dayton, up from the minors on Thursday, followed with two scoreless innings, including a strikeout of Ortiz in the sixth.I was trying not to think about it, Dayton said when asked about facing Ortiz. Obviously, hes a legend, but I still had to do my job. I just tried to execute my pitches and trust (catcher) A.J. (Ellis).Kenley Jansen closed for his NL-leading 33rd save.Adrian Gonzalez added three hits and an RBI for Los Angeles. Hes batting .386 (22 for 57) since July 1 and has nine games with at least three hits this year.Eduardo Rodriguez (2-5) gave up three runs and eight hits over 4 1/3 innings.The first ball hit by the Dodgers, a soft liner off the bat of Howie Kendrick, forced Ortiz to move to his right to make a lunging catch. With runners on first and third in the fifth, Ortiz made a diving catch of Josh Reddicks liner to end the inning.Good hands never leave you. Remember that, Ortiz said.Ortiz left in the sixth inning and Travis Shaw shifted from third to first.I just didnt want to go three days without playing, but Im OK, Ortiz said. I got a little sore out there.Mookie Betts had two hits for Boston.Corey Seager set the Dodgers rookie record with his 31st double of the season, an RBI hit that made it 2-0 in the fifth. He had been tied with Eric Karros (1992).Ellis got his first RBI since June 27 with a two-out single in the second.DISH DECISIONThe Red Sox may put newly acquired C Bryan Holaday behind plate Sunday, manager John Farrell said. Holaday was a teammate of Sunday starter David Price in Detroit in 2014-15.Holaday was claimed off waivers from Texas on Friday.There would be no hesitation for Bryan to handle David tomorrow, Farrell said. David had a lot of history with Bryan back from Detroit. Theres a comfort level there.TRAINERS ROOMRed Sox: 2B Dustin Pedroia, who left Friday nights game after fouling a pitch off his left ankle, was still sore Saturday and didnt play. Farrell said Pedroia would hopefully be back in the lineup Sunday. ... OF Chris Youngs rehab assignment date will depend upon a baserunning workout Sunday. ... 1B Hanley Ramirez, after sitting out two games with a jammed left wrist, came through Fridays game without incident. He struck out as a pinch hitter in the seventh inning Saturday, and Farrell expected him back in the Red Sox lineup on Sunday.Dodgers: Norris is on the disabled list with a back strain. No timetable has been set for the right-handers return. ... LHP Brett Anderson (herniated disk) will make a rehab start at Triple-A Oklahoma City on Monday, with a 75-pitch/five-inning limit. ... OF Trayce Thompson (lower back tightness) has scaled back his baseball activities. Manager Dave Roberts said the team took measures to stabilize his back and core. ... RHP Casey Fien (elbow tendinitis) will begin a rehab stint at Arizona on Monday.NEXT UPRed Sox: LHP David Price (9-7,4.30) enters Sundays start with a 3.15 ERA over his last five outings. He leads the American League with seven double-digit strikeout games.Dodgers: RHP Brandon McCarthy (2-2,2.76) has seen the team lose each of his last four starts, despite him allowing six runs in 17 1/3 innings ( 3.12 ERA). Current Red Sox are batting .328 against McCarthy (64 at-bats). Cheap Craig Biggio Jersey . -- Jakob Silfverberg is making himself right at home with the Anaheim Ducks, scoring four goals in his first four games. Cheap Roy Oswalt Jersey . They hope to persuade the other team owners and commissioner Roger Goodell to put pressure on Redskins owner Daniel Snyder to drop the nickname they find offensive. "Given the way the meeting transpired," Ray Halbritter, an Oneida representative and leader of the "Change the Mascot Campaign," said Wednesday, "it became somewhat evident they were defending the continued use of the name. http://www.cheapastrosjerseys.com/ . -- Charline Labonte couldnt have asked for a better homecoming. TROON, Scotland -- Its already been quite a road trip for Patrick Reed.Hed love to return home with the claret jug.Not long after arriving in Scotland, Reed learned hell get a chance to play in the Olympics. Then, he went out and shot 66 Thursday in the opening round of the British Open.I need to stick to my game plan, Reed said after his 5-under score left him three shots behind fellow American Phil Mickelson. I know it works.Until now, Reed is perhaps best known for his youthful boast two years ago that he already considered himself one of the top five players in the game. He added to his bad-boy reputation in the Ryder Cup, where he seemed to thrive on the heckling by European fans.While he hasnt exactly backed up that swagger, the 25-year-old was playing well enough to land a spot in the first Olympic golf competition since 1904, getting on the U.S. team when Dustin Johnson dropped out last weekend because of health concerns in Brazil.Even so, Reed hasnt made the same mark as other youthful Americans. Jordan Spieth already has two major titles. Rickie Fowler has a bunch of endorsements and no shortage of hype.I dont mind flying underneath the radar, Reed insisted. Of course, if youre playing well you want to be noticed.Reed has yet to win in 2016.Royal Troon wouldnt be a bad place to start.This year hasnt been quite how I wanted it to be, he said. Ive had a lot of top 10s, but I dont go to play golf tournaments to finish top 10. I try to go and win golf tournaments.Reed is playing in the Open for only the third time, but his familiarity with links golf goes back a lot farther than that. A decade ago, he got a chance to play in the Junior British Open.He fell in love right away.Just watching the different shots that other players were hitting, I always thought it would be fun because I love to create shots and hit the funny things, the Texan said. At home, we cant do that. Its too soft. You cant hit the stinger 2-iron and let it run, or the low hook chip shot and watch it bounce up a hill and kind of trickle over.Back in 2006, Reed not only gott a chance to play links golf. Cheap Marwin Gonzalez Jersey. He was also able to watch the big boys at Hoylake, where Tiger Woods romped to his second straight Open title on a fried-out course.It was scorching, Reed remembered. I dont think Tiger really hit a driver. It was nothing but irons. To watch somebody hit an iron 320 or 330 yards, yet the ball is only flying 240, 230, and just watching it run, it just showed that it would probably be a pretty cool, pretty fun place to play to be able to do different things.Reed was on top of the leaderboard at Troon much of the day, sparked by an eagle at the third hole when he holed out a fairway shot from 139 yards. Mickelson surged in front late in the afternoon with a 63 -- matching the best round in major tournament history.By the time everyone had finished, there was an All-American look to the board, which is nothing new at Troon.Defending Open champion Zach Johnson was among those at 67, joined by Justin Thomas, Steve Stricker, Keegan Bradley and Bill Horschel. The last six Opens held at the course in western Scotland have been won by U.S. players, going back to Arnold Palmer in 1962.Ive heard that stat as well, but honestly with how competition is these days, it doesnt really matter where youre from or anything like that, Reed said. You have to be on your game, you have to stick to your game plan.Especially with stormy weather expected to move in Friday -- a striking contrast to an opening round played in gorgeous conditions, the sun glistening off the Irish Sea, a light breeze barely rippling the flagsticks.Reed didnt sound too concerned.Whatever the wind or rain or if its cold or hot, its not really going to make a difference to me, he said. My game plan is to play to certain areas on each hole. Im not really going to stray too far away from that.---Follow Paul Newberry on Twitter at www.twitter.com/pnewberry1963 .
