    CINCINNATI (AP) — The Cleveland Indians lost one of their best pitchers Tuesday when they placed right-hander Trevor Bauer on the 10-day disabled list with a small stress fracture in his right leg.Cleveland is in complete control in the AL Central Ken Boyer Jersey , leading second-place Minnesota by 12 1/2 games coming into the day. But any lingering issue with Bauer could hurt its chances of advancing in the playoffs.Bauer was struck by Jose Abreu’s liner in the seventh inning of Saturday night’s 3-1 win at the Chicago White Sox. He returned to Cleveland after experiencing soreness and swelling, and an MRI revealed the injury.Bauer is one of the top candidates for the AL Cy Young Award. The 27-year-old right-hander is 12-6 with a 2.22 ERA in 25 starts. This is his first career DL stint.“Knowing Trev, he’ll keep his arm in shape and he’ll be raring to go whenever he’s ready,” Indians manager Terry Francona said before their game against Cincinnati. “There’s never a good time. But he’ll keep his arm good and strong.”Left-hander Tyler Olson was recalled from Triple-A Columbus to take Bauer’s roster spot. Right-hander Adam Plutko will make his seventh start of the season in place of Bauer on Saturday.Plutko is 4-2 with a 4.75 ERA in nine appearances.Francona said right-hander Josh Tomlin is another candidate to be inserted into the rotation, but would need to be stretched out. Tomlin could return this week from a hamstring strain.Francona said he texted with Bauer on Tuesday afternoon.“He said he was sorry,” Francona said, laughing. “You feel for him. He has put himself in such a good place.”Bauer leads the AL with 166 innings pitched while ranking second with 214 strikeouts and third in ERA. LOS ANGELES (AP) — Matt Kemp is used to being an everyday player. With so much talent on the Dodgers, though, he’s had to adjust to not seeing his name in the lineup as often.“Does he like it?” manager Dave Roberts said. “Probably not, but he understands.”Kemp is just happy to be playing baseball that matters in September http://www.stlouiscardinalsteamshop.com/authentic-mike-shannon-jersey , after being on teams in San Diego and Atlanta that missed the playoffs in recent years.“This doesn’t get old,” he said after NL West-leading Los Angeles pounded out 16 hits in a 14-0 rout of the San Diego Padres on Sunday. “I’m excited about what’s to come.”The Dodgers’ division lead remained at 1½ games over Colorado, which won 2-0 at Arizona.The Dodgers finished their home slate at 44-37. They are 87-69 overall with six games remaining and would need to surpass the NL East champion Atlanta Braves (88-68) to earn home-field advantage in the NL Division Series.“We do some scoreboard watching,” Kemp said.Kemp went 3-for-4 — falling a triple shy of the cycle — drove in three runs and scored two on his 34th birthday. Fans in right field serenaded him by singing “Happy Birthday.”“I haven’t had a triple all year,” he said. “That would have been cool.”Hyun-Jin Ryu (6-3) pitched six scoreless innings and tied a career high with three hits. The South Korean left-hander allowed four hits, struck out eight and walked none to help the Dodgers take two out of three from the last-place Padres.“Because the hitters gave me a lead, it was very comfortable pitching,” Ryu said through a translator.Brian Dozier was the only Dodgers starter without at least one hit. Max Muncy entered as a pinch-hitter and drove in a team-high four runs.Los Angeles had three homers to extend its NL-leading and club-record total to 225.Manny Machado and Kemp slugged solo shots in the first, giving Ryu a 2-0 lead. Kemp’s homer was his 1,000th career RBI Whitey Herzog Jersey , making him the 11th active player to reach that mark.“It’s tough for all of us,” Kemp said, referring to those who don’t play every day, “but we all got one common goal. Sacrifices have to be made at this moment. The main thing is to get back to the playoffs and back to the World Series.” Machado’s homer was his 37th this season, matching a career high, and his 13th since the Dodgers acquired him from Baltimore.Austin Barnes‘ two-run homer highlighted a six-run fourth when the Dodgers batted around. David Freese’s two-out RBI single chased Joey Lucchesi (8-9). Machado followed with an RBI single off Trey Wingenter, who then walked Enrique Hernandez to load the bases.Left fielder Hunter Renfroe had trouble picking up Kemp’s RBI single that added two more runs to make it 8-0.Muncy had two-run singles in the fifth and seventh.Ryu’s three singles tied a career high set on April 13, 2013, at Arizona. His two runs scored also equaled a career high set on June 17, 2017 http://www.stlouiscardinalsteamshop.com/authentic-vince-coleman-jersey , at Cincinnati.“He’s a big-game pitcher and it showed today,” Roberts said. “A certain moment doesn’t get too big for him.”Lucchesi, the third straight rookie to start against the Dodgers, gave up a career-high seven runs on seven hits in 3 2/3 innings. The left-hander struck out six and walked two.“We can beat them on one given night if we get everything in the lineup correctly,” Padres manager Andy Green said, “but to be able to beat them consistently we’ve got some work to do.”UTLEY’S LAST STANDChase Utley played his last regular-season game at Dodger Stadium. The 39-year-old veteran plans to retire after the season. He took a curtain call before the game and received a standing ovation during an at-bat in the sixth, when fans chanted his last name. He grounded out to second that time and lined out to left in the eighth.HOME RECORDThe Dodgers’ home record was their worst since going 42-39 in 2011. They won eight of their last 11 this month at Chavez Ravine.HOME CROWDThe Dodgers had total home attendance of 3,809,684, second-most in franchise history and eighth-largest in National League history. They averaged nearly 47 Orlando Cepeda Jersey ,000 fans a game, the best in the majors by about 4,000 over the New York Yankees.CAN’T BEAT LAThe Padres went 5-14 against the Dodgers this season, including losing seven of nine on the road.UP NEXTPadres: RHP Bryan Mitchell (1-4, 6.16 ERA) takes the mound in the opener of a three-game set at San Francisco. He came off the DL on Sept. 1 and earned his first win as a Padre two days later.Dodgers: LHP Clayton Kershaw (8-5, 2.45) starts the opener of a three-game series at third-place Arizona.
