ARLINGTON [url=http://www.whitesoxfanproshop.com/authentic-carlos-rodon-jersey]http://www.whitesoxfanproshop.com/authentic-carlos-rodon-jersey[/url] , Texas (AP) — he defending NL champion Los Angeles Dodgers in a push to get back into the playoffs. Their closer is struggling.Manny Machado drove in four runs, his most since getting to Los Angeles, and Brian Dozier hit his 20th homer of the season as the Dodgers beat the Texas Rangers 8-4 on Tuesday night for their fourth win in a row.“Everyone is moving in the right direction and everybody is feeling good about themselves,” Machado said. “It’s a matter of just getting on a nice little roll and sticking with it.”Caleb Ferguson (5-2) went 1 1/3 innings as the first of four relievers with scoreless outings before Kenley Jansen came on with an 8-2 lead in the ninth and allowed two runs on three hits and a walk.Jansen has been scored on in each of his four appearances since coming off the disabled list Aug. 20 following a hospital stay due to heart issues. He has allowed seven runs and 10 hits over four innings in those games.“I’ll be all right. At some point I’ll figure it out. A little amped up today. Command wasn’t there,” Jansen said. “Listen, people can panic like, ‘Oh God, what’s happening with me,’ but I know myself. I am going to go out there and keep competing and I will get out of this.”The big right-hander did end the game with a highlight, making a behind-the-back grab of a comebacker with a broken bat twirling above his head. He then turned to make the relay to second base that started a double play.“At least one thing went good for me,” Jansen said.Machado’s four RBIs were the most in his 36 games for the Dodgers since being acquired from the Baltimore Orioles last month. He put Los Angeles ahead to stay with a two-run single in the third, then added a sac fly in the fourth and an RBI single in the sixth that made it 7-2. The shortstop has nine RBIs the past three games.Dozier had a solo shot for his fourth homer in 24 games since joining the Dodgers from Minnesota. He also had an RBI single.FOR STARTERSDodgers rookie right-hander Walker Buehler [url=http://www.whitesoxfanproshop.com/authentic-nellie-fox-jersey]Nellie Fox Jersey[/url] , who was 2-0 with a 1.07 ERA in his previous four August starts, threw 84 pitches in four innings. He allowed two runs and four hits, with four strikeouts and two walks. Texas rookie Ariel Jurado (2-4) gave up three runs and five hits in 2 2/3 innings. The right-hander walked two and struck out one.BANNY’S TRIBUTERangers manager Jeff Banister had the initials “BK” written on his cap for Buzzy Keller, a scout who passed away Monday. “A tremendous human being,” Banister said. “He’s the guy that signed me in a Wendy’s in Baytown, Texas, and gave me $1,000 and said, ‘I’m not going to make you rich, but I’m going give you an opportunity to play this game.’ He was a huge part of why I sit in this seat and why I am the person I am.”MATCHING GWYNNAdrian Beltre, baseball’s active career hits leader, had a single in the Rangers ninth for career hit No. 3 [url=http://www.whitesoxfanproshop.com/authentic-harold-baines-jersey]http://www.whitesoxfanproshop.com/authentic-harold-baines-jersey[/url] ,141 — matching Tony Gwynn for 18th on the career list. His next hit will tie Robin Yount for 17th.LOT OF HITSEnrique Hernandez was 3 for 3 with a walk and a sac fly while scoring twice for the Dodgers. They finished with 15 hits overall, with Machado and Dozier among four players with two each.TRAINER’S ROOMDodgers: All-Star right-hander Ross Stripling (lower back) threw off flat ground and says he could probably pitch, but the Dodgers aren’t pushing his return from the disabled list. He hasn’t pitched since Aug. 9. He is scheduled to throw a bullpen Wednesday and could return over the weekend.Rangers: CF Delino DeShields (fractured tip right middle finger) started a rehab assignment at Double-A Frisco. … Hard-throwing RHP Matt Bush (right flexor tendon), who hasn’t pitched since mid-June, acknowledged that he likely won’t pitch again this season. He hasn’t been able to throw off a mound yet.UP NEXTA matchup of lefties and former Braves teammates when Alex Wood (7-6) pitches for the Dodgers against Mike Minor (10-6). They both made their big league debuts with Atlanta, Minor in 2010 and Wood in 2013. Minor missed the entire 2015 season because of injury and Wood was traded midway through that season to Los Angeles. Minor is 4-0 with a 2.73 ERA his last five starts. MILWAUKEE — With just over two weeks left in the regular season, the Milwaukee Brewers are still nipping at the Chicago Cubs’ heels in the National League Central race while trying to protect their wild-card lead from the resurgent Los Angeles Dodgers.But if the Brewers are going to snap a seven-year postseason drought, they’ll need to figure out the Pittsburgh Pirates.“They’ve got good arms, guys who throw hard with power stuff,” Milwaukee outfielder Christian Yelich said. “Any time you face them, you know it could be a tough night, a battle. You’ve got to do what you can.”Article continues below ...After opening the series with a 7-4 victory Friday night [url=http://www.whitesoxfanproshop.com/authentic-luke-appling-jersey]Luke Appling Jersey[/url] , the Brewers couldn’t do much Saturday in Game 2 of the series, mustering just one run in a 3-1 loss to the Pirates. It was the Brewers’ 10th loss in 15 meetings with the Pirates this season and the ninth time Pittsburgh’s pitching held Milwaukee to three or fewer runs.“They’ve been pitching-based for the last couple of years,” Brewers manager Craig Counsell said. “You figure that’s the game you’re going to be in when you play these guys.”The loss left the Brewers 2 1/2 games back of the Cubs in the NL Central but still holding onto a three-game lead over the Dodgers for the top wild-card spot. The Brewers will try to pad that lead while also chipping into Chicago’s on Sunday when they wrap up the series against Trevor Williams.Williams gave up four runs in five innings against St. Louis his last time out, equaling the total runs he’d allowed in his previous nine starts. “I’m just thankful I’m not pitching against the Cardinals again for the rest of the year,'” Williams said. “‘They’re a great ballclub and I wish them nothing but success going into October.”He has fared a little better against Milwaukee, posting a 2.18 ERA in four career appearances, including three starts. He threw seven shutout innings against the Brewers on June 18, allowing one hit and striking out seven.Williams followed that gem with three rough outings, allowing 12 runs in 13 innings but has been one of the best pitchers in the National League ever since, posting an 0.66 ERA in a nine-start stretch leading up to the Monday night game against the Cardinals. “It’s been really a strong stretch,”‘ Pittsburgh manager Clint Hurdle said.The Brewers look to clinch their ninth consecutive series behind right-hander Jhoulys Chacin, who has a 2.28 ERA in four outings against the Pirates this season. That success was the reason Counsell flipped Chacin and Wade Miley in his rotation. Miley has struggled against Pittsburgh [url=http://www.whitesoxfanproshop.com/authentic-bo-jackson-jersey]http://www.whitesoxfanproshop.com/authentic-bo-jackson-jersey[/url] , posting a 4.82 ERA in two starts, and will now start Monday against the Cincinnati Reds, a team he held to one run in 7 1/3 innings on Aug. 30.“Like I’ve always said, this is something I really wanted when I signed here — to pitch in meaningful games,” Chacin said. “Hopefully in the next couple weeks, we can celebrate making the playoffs. We have 15 more games, but right now it feels like we’ve earned our way. We’re finishing the season strong and in a good way, so I think that’s going to push us more in the playoffs.”
