Chase Utley led off the game with a walk, went to second base on another walk, took third on a wild pitch then scored when the throw to third base skipped out of play. Justin Turner walked and scored on another walk/wild pitch combination.In the fourth inning, Kershaw helped his own cause by driving in Crawford with an RBI double to center field. Kershaw went 2 for 2, nearly doubling the total number of hits by Dodger pitchers to this point in the season (three).The Dodgers put a pair of runners on base in the ninth inning against Marlins closer A.J. Ramos, but could not score. They had only six hits, which wasn’t enough once Koehler discovered his control.“Kersh put the best at-bats, it seemed like, all night,” Roberts said. “Without those at-bats I don’t know how much offense we had.”Added Kershaw, “I kind of get lucky every once in a while.”Kershaw gets unlucky every once in a while, too. Luck helps explain how the Marlins finally got the ball rolling.Not Stanton. He’s put on one too many shows here to get lucky anymore. He has six home runs already this season; Joc Pederson and Adrian Gonzalez lead the Dodgers with three.“He’s a guy obviously in baseball who if you make a mistake he’ll make you pay,” Roberts said. “It happened quick. The first five innings, you’d think (Kershaw) would throw a shutout, the way he was throwing the baseball, commanding and was in complete control. It turned quickly.” “Obviously you don’t want their best hitter to beat you,” Kershaw said. “That’s what happened.”It happened at Dodger Stadium on Monday, too, and again the day before; Stanton has hit home runs in three consecutive games. The former Sherman Oaks Notre Dame High School standout has a .750 slugging percentage in his career at Dodger Stadium.Stanton missed more than half of last season because of a broken bone in his hand. Coincidentally, he suffered the injury in a game against the Dodgers in Miami. Stanton was leading the major leagues in home runs and RBIs at the time.“With him in the middle of the order it’s important to get the guys out prior,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said. “Obviously the way Yelich is swinging the bat, he’s been getting on base a lot. To combat those great players in the middle of the order you’ve got to get the guys in front of them out. When you don’t do that it just creates stress. Three-runs homers, they win games.”For five innings Kershaw gave up only one hit, a gift triple in the second inning that fooled Dodgers left fielder Carl Crawford as he drifted back and to his left. With Marcell Ozuna on third base, Kershaw came back to strike out J.T. Realmuto and Chris Johnson, two of his 10 strikeouts in the game, beginning a streak of 12 consecutive outs. One bad inning is one more than anyone expects from Clayton Kershaw in 2016, at least in the regular season. The Dodgers’ ace never expects a bad inning from himself.The Marlins scored all of their runs against Kershaw in the sixth inning Tuesday, beating the Dodgers, 5-3, before an announced crowd of 41,102 at Dodger Stadium.The threads of a near no-hitter had barely unraveled when Giancarlo Stanton, the most feared slugger in the Miami Marlins’ dugout outside of Barry Bonds, stepped in to face Kershaw with two runners on base. After delivering his second pitch to Stanton, a 1-0 fastball over the heart of the plate, Kershaw took a knee on the mound.When he looked up, Kershaw could see the baseball land 433 feet away in center field, the scoreboard declaring Stanton’s home run a 109 mph moonshot, and the Dodgers trailing for the first time all night.
