That was part of a five-run second inning that put Los Angeles up for good, as Kemp went deep in the second and third innings, both of which were solo shots. Chris Taylor drove in three for the Dodgers, who had 15 hits on the day and added another five-run frame in the fifth inning. They take two of three in their first series with Machado, who went 2-for-5 in the series finale with his one RBI. His career-high on-base streak was extended to 22 games, dating back to his time with the Baltimore Orioles.
Meanwhile, just one day after snapping their seven-game losing streak, the Brewers dropped their eighth in their past nine games. Combined with the Chicago Cubs' win over the St. Louis Cardinals, they now sit 3.5-games back in the NL Central. Although, they still hold the final Wild Card spot, tied with the Philadelphia Phillies, two games ahead of the Arizona Diamondbacks.
Brent Suter dropped to 8-7, who gave up six runs, including both of Kemp's long balls, in just three innings of work. The Dodgers' outfielder continues to enjoy a revamped season, now with 17 home runs on the year. Alex Wood overcame a two-run single from Travis Shaw in the first to earn his sixth win, as he allowed just five hits over six innings. Los Angeles continued their road trip on Monday night against the Philadelphia Phillies.
