Despite having Clayton Kershaw on the mound Tuesday night, the Los Angeles Dodgers once again found themselves trailing the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim in the early stages of the game.

Behind a single and two doubles in the second inning, the Angels jumped out to a 2-0 lead. The two runs allowed exceeded the total of runs Kershaw allowed in his previous two starts.

The Dodgers went to work in picking up their ace in the second inning and put two runners on with no outs for Juan Uribe. The third baseman put the Dodgers ahead with a three-run home run halfway up the left field pavilion.

The home run was Uribe’s sixth of the season, first since July 8 and he increased his RBI total to 34. While some Dodgers have scuffled at the plate this season, Uribe has been a consistent contributor when healthy.
