Dodgers’ Kemp returns, homers in 1st at-bat
Question of the Day
WASHINGTON (AP) - Matt Kemp homered and doubled in the same inning Sunday in his first two at-bats off the disabled list.
The Los Angeles Dodgers center fielder led off the second with a solo shot, then doubled home Andre Ethier in a seven-run inning against Washington Nationals starter Jordan Zimmermann.
Kemp, who had been hindered by inflammation in his left shoulder after offseason surgery, was activated from the 15-day DL before the game and batted sixth. He entered the game hitting .254 with four home runs in 61 games.
It was the first time that Kemp, Hanley Ramirez and Carl Crawford appeared together in the Dodgers starting lineup this season.
Puig was hitting .160 (4-for-25) in his last six games after batting .407 (55-for-135) in his first 34 games. He was 0 for 9 with five strikeouts in the first two games against the Nationals. Mattingly said he doesn’t believe an injury is affecting Puig.
Los Angeles also optioned Scott Van Slyke.
