Los Angeles Dodgers relief pitcher Dylan Floro against the San Francisco Giants

Clayton Kershaw passed Sandy Koufax for most wins by a Dodgers left-hander, Will Smith hit a go-ahead, two-run homer in the third inning, and Los Angeles routed the Toronto Blue Jays 16-3 Tuesday night. Taylor, who had been out since mid-July due to a fractured left forearm, had three hits and drove in four runs. He threw seven innings, allowing no runs on two hits with no walks and 10 strikeouts in a 9-1 Dodgers victory. But the Dodgers backed their eight-time All-Star with four double plays and slugged five homers while pounding out 15 hits.

Los Angeles dropped the final two games of their three-game series with the Braves on the road in a battle of division leaders. He struck out two and walked two.

The Dodgers unleashed their offence in the bottom of the third inning against right-hander Sean Reid-Foley (2-4), delivering a five-run rally with two outs. He comes in 12-2 with a 2.63 ERA, a 1.00 WHIP, 28 walks and 141 strikeouts over 137 innings of work on the year. L.A.'s dominance continued for the rest of the game and the Dodgers beat the Blue Jays, 16-3.

Toronto Blue Jays brodcaster Dan Shulman has it absolutely correct with his first instinct after seeing that ball leave the bat: "Oh boy", indeed.

The first appears to reference to the Uniform Commercial Code, a broad set of commercial laws. Meanwhile, Comedian Trevor Noah made fun of those who had fallen for the hoax.

Bichette, who has made a habit of setting records with regularity in the first weeks of his blossoming career, started the game with a bang, hammering the second pitch out of Kershaw's hand into the left-field seats for a leadoff home run.

Guerrero is one of several blue-chip prospects the Blue Jays organization now boasts. He had a pair of singles and two walks. OF Alex Verdugo (strained oblique) is still having pain and hasn't resumed baseball activities in Arizona. Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said Verdugo is still experiencing discomfort with his right oblique muscle, which sidelined him on August 6, and won't return until the start of September at the earliest. LHP Rich Hill (strained flexor tendon) will throw a bullpen session this week.

Jose Reyes, Jay Bruce, Jayson Werth, Adam Dunn, and Carlos Gonzalez were the only others to pull off the feat at any point, and none of them were rookies, nor were they as young as the 21-year-old Bichette when they did it.
