KEY MOMENT: With no outs and men on the corners in the fourth inning, Adrian Gonzalez flied out to left field. Dee Gordon tagged up from third base but was thrown out at the plate. As Gordon was running home, Yasiel Puig tried to go from first to second. Puig was initially ruled to have beaten a throw to second by Cleveland catcher Yan Gomes, but the Indians challenged the call and successfully overturned it. The Dodgers issued a challenge of their own, asking for the play at home to be reviewed. That play stood, meaning the play went in the books as a 7-2-4 triple play, and the Dodgers' deficit remained at 5-3.
IN THE STANDINGS: The Dodgers dropped into second place, half a game behind the San Francisco Giants, who beat the St. Louis Cardinals, 5-0.
AT THE PLATE: The Dodgers loaded the bases three times and failed to score all three times. In six at-bats with the bases loaded, they struck out five times. In all, the Dodgers struck out 14 times against seven pitchers.
ON THE MOUND: Josh Beckett was charged with five runs and six hits over five innings. He walked one and struck out five. Jamey Wright and Paul Maholm combined to give up five runs over three innings.
MEDICAL REPORT: Hanley Ramirez didn't start for the sixth time in the last seven games, but he pinch-hit in the fifth inning and struck out. Manager Don Mattingly insisted that Ramirez's condition was improving and that he expected the former All-Star to return to the lineup before All-Star break. … Carl Crawford has been hitting and running at the Dodgers' spring-training complex in Arizona and could start a minor league rehabilitation assignment with triple-A Albuquerque.
UP NEXT: Hyun-Jin Ryu (9-4, 3.12) will face the Indians and Trevor Bauer (2-4, 4.39) at Dodger Stadium on Wednesday at noon. On the air: SportsNet LA. Radio: 570, 1020 (Spanish).Copyright © 2015, Los Angeles Times
