DODGERS 9, CUBS 4 Cody Bellinger and Kike Hernandez led an offensive outburst with three-run home runs that upstaged the anticipated duel between aces Jon Lester and Clayton Kershaw, helping Los Angeles beat visiting Chicago. Dylan Bundy (5-3, 2.92 ERA) aims to end the rut when he starts at Camden Yards against Yankees rookie Jordan Montgomery (2-3, 4.30 ERA).
Strasburg (6-1) singled and scored Washington's first run on Bryce Harper's RBI grounder in the third inning.
That's in part because the Angels dropped Sunday's game against the Miami Marlins by a 9-2 final, giving them six losses in their last 10 tries. He threw 103 pitches in five innings of work. X-Rays were taken after the game that did not show any fractures.
Longoria's seventh homer of the season came off the second pitch of the inning from Hector Santiago (4-4), who is scheduled to be the Wednesday starter for Minnesota.
Joey Gallo hit his 15th home run as the Texas Rangers beat the Toronto Blue Jays 3-1 Sunday, snapping their longest losing streak of the season at five.
Also out of the starting lineup for rest days were right fielder Bryce Harper, left fielder Jayson Werth and catcher Matt Wieters. The Marlins pounded out four hits in the inning off Angels starter Matt Shoemaker, who had limited the Miami to only three hits over four previous innings.
The winning pitcher was Kirby Yates (1-0), who came on in the fifth and retired all five batters he faced. He leads the league in each of those categories as well as runs scored, walks, OPS+ and total bases.
As if a cross-country flight after a blowout loss isn't hard enough, the Angels packed up from the end of their trip while pondering a disturbing cliffhanger.
Mike Trout stood at his locker and frowned as he looked down at his left thumb, which was puffy and red and sending a clear signal. He will undergo an MRI on Monday.
Urena is seeing the Angels for the first time and is 1-2 with a 3.76 ERA in 10 career interleague games - three starts. For the Angels, their 9-2 loss became a secondary concern.
The Angels will see how star Mike Trout is feeling, a day after he sprained his left thumb making a headfirst slide to steal a base in Miami. He then popped up and began shaking his hand and grimacing in pain.
Rays 8, Twins 6 (15): Evan Longoria and Logan Morrison hit back-to-back homers in the 15th inning, Steven Souza Jr. drove in the tying run with a single with two outs in the ninth, and Tampa Bay outlasted the Twins in Minneapolis in a game that took almost 6 1/2 hours. He stayed in the game but was removed for a defensive replacement the following inning. Earlier in the season, Trout suffered a hamstring injury. It was the longest time he had been out since becoming an everyday player in April 2012.
-The St. Louis Cardinals placed second baseman Kolten Wong on the 10-day disabled list with a left elbow strain.
