The benches cleared briefly after the top of the third when Cueto and Grandal exchanged words.

Los Angeles Dodgers starting pitcher Clayton Kershaw (22) throws a pitch during the first inning of the game against the San Francisco Giants at AT&T Park. "We're on good terms now, so let's not make it a bigger deal than it is".

Cubs 7, Reds 5: Anthony Rizzo and Kyle Schwarber drove in two runs apiece, and Chicago handed Cincinnati its season-high fifth straight loss.

Los Angeles Dodgers' Yasiel Puig swings for a two run single off San Francisco Giants' Johnny Cueto in the sixth inning of a baseball game, Wednesday, May 17, 2017, in San Francisco. Maybin, batting leadoff for the second time in an Angels uniform, went 3 for 4 with two runs scored and drew a walk a day after a career-best five hits. "With guys on second base he thought we were relaying signs and so he obviously let us know and Corey early on about that".

"Well it was a big win in NY and then we're able to win that marathon game against the Reds".

Grandal said he and Cueto settled matters when Cueto came to the plate in the bottom of the third.

"He said, 'Sorry for the misunderstanding".

"Just a lot of talk", Kershaw said, dismissing the confrontation for what it was.

Left-hander Clayton Kershaw (6-2), who has a career 1.66 ERA in 38 appearances against San Francisco, starts for the Dodgers in the afternoon finale on Wednesday while the Giants counter with right-hander Johnny Cueto (4-2). Kershaw was on his game from the start and did not allow a hit until Justin Ruggiano finally picked up a single with one out in the fourth inning.

Kershaw allowed three hits and didn't walk a batter for the fourth time in 2017 as the Dodgers snapped their three-game skid and ended the Giants' season-best five-game winning streak.

Chris Taylor homered for the Dodgers in the sixth.

The Tampa Bay Rays overcame the Cleveland Indians 7-4, the Houston Astros shut out the Miami Marlins 3-0 and the Arizona Diamondbacks took 11 innings to get past the New York Mets 5-4.

Yasmani Grandal plated two runs in the first inning by going down and liberating a slider in the dirt and somehow hitting a line drive off the brick wall in right field.

Chicago went ahead to stay with five runs in the second against Scott Feldman (2-4), who was chased in the third.

The Dodgers got to him for two runs in the first.

"You look at the damage with us today - four or five runs with two outs", Roberts said.

Cole (2-4) struck out three, walked two and received an overdue dose of support when Josh Bell smacked a three-run homer in the sixth off Jacob Turner (2-2).

Dodgers: RHP Brandon McCarthy will pitch Sunday against the Marlins as Kenta Maeda gets a little more time to recover from a tight left hamstring that landed him on the disabled list.

Jeff Samardzija's strong outing on Mother's Day earned him his first win of the year and helped the Giants put together a five game winning streak.

The Texas Rangers enjoyed an eighth straight win by beating the Philadelphia Phillies 9-3, the New York Yankees held off the Kansas City Royals 11-7 and the Boston Red Sox had a 5-4, 13-inning win against the St Louis Cardinals.
