ON THE MOUND: Right-handed reliever Chris Hatcher inherited a runner on second base and a one-run lead in the eighth inning.

MATTINGLY EJECTED: The Dodgers bullpen had eaten plenty of innings recently, so when Clayton Kershaw walked over to first base umpire Paul Emmel to argue a balk call in the third inning, Mattingly came out to intervene. "I just wasn't going to really let him — when he takes a step toward Clayton, then I got to go out and make sure that Clayton stays in the game," Mattingly said. Mattingly argued for about 25 seconds, and, as he turned to the dugout, he got the hook, his first this season. He used the opportunity to argue some more.
