Yu Darvish Left vs. White Sox with Back Tightness, Removed as Precaution

Once again, the White Sox were up to the challenge for the first 7 1/2 innings at Dodger Stadium thanks to an early homer from a young player and a solid starting pitching performance.

Barnes scored the Dodgers' third and final run in the ninth inning, the finishing touch on a 5-4 come-from-behind victory over the Chicago White Sox.

For the first time in 64 years, the Los Angeles Dodgers have a record that is 50 games over.500 at 84-34.

The Dodgers closed to 4-3 with one out in the ninth on Logan Forsythe's RBI double in the left-field corner that scored pinch-hitter Cody Bellinger, who singled.

In the home debut of Yu Darvish, the Dodgers' pitcher hardly figured into the final outcome on his 31st birthday.

Darvish gave up three runs and eight hits in his six innings. Also, Adam Dunn once struck out in 36 straight games, but that straddled two seasons: he struck out in the final four games of 2011 and the first 32 games of 2012. That quieted the denizens quickly. Xander Bogaerts hit a solo homer for the AL East-leading Red Sox, who won for the 12th time in 14 games and maintained their 4 1/2-game lead over the second-place New York Yankees. The Dodgers will fly to Detroit on Thursday and begin a three-game interleague series against the Tigers on Friday. He struck out six and walked one and ended his four-game losing streak.

White Sox starter Carlos Rodon made a strong lineup look weak.

Darvish left the game as the losing pitcher, but did not factor in the deicion, allowing three runs on eight hits with one walk and just two strikeouts in six innings of his first Major League Baseball start at Dodger Stadium.

The honorary member of the Dodgers "Slug Club", Kiké Hernandez, hit his 11 home run of the season when he tied the game off Rodon in the bottom half of the fourth inning. After 118 games, the 2001 Mariners were 85-33, so the Dodgers can change that pacing in a hurry.

The birthday boy did not enjoy the same run support Wednesday.

Darvish said he first felt tightness in his back last week in his start at Arizona. He finished with two - a career low in his 125th major league game. He allowed eight hits and one walk while striking out only two.
