tuesDAY'S HIGHLIGHTS

Dodgers 5, Diamondbacks 3: In a game highlighted by a heated brawl in the seventh inning that involved both players and coaches, Tim Federowicz hit a go-ahead three-run double in the eighth inning for Los Angeles.

Arizona starter Ian Kennedy, manager Kirk Gibson and coach Turner Ward, along with Dodgers star rookie Yasiel Puig and hitting coach Mark McGwire were ejected after the prolonged bench-clearing scuffle.

Kennedy hit Los Angeles starter Zack Greinke with a pitch, a retaliation throw that triggered the fracas that nearly spilled into the stands. An inning earlier, Greinke hit Diamondbacks catcher Miguel Montero in the back and both teams came charging onto the field but it broke up quickly with no punches thrown. That was payback for Kennedy hitting Puig. The ball deflected off his shoulder and struck Puig on the nose.

Indians 5, Rangers 2: Corey Kluber allowed one run over eight innings and Cleveland beat Texas to snap an eight-game losing streak. Neither team took pregame batting practice on the field after a busted water pipe under the infield caused a sinkhole right behind the mound. Workers had to dig more than 3 feet deep to try to fix the pipe but completed the repair and had the grass back in place behind the mound about an hour before the game.

Rays 8, Red Sox 3: Matt Joyce hit one of three homers off Jon Lester for Tampa Bay.

  • Boston right-hander Clay Buchholz's next start will be pushed back by at least two days because of what the team called "neck tightness."
