Benches clear in first Astros-Dodgers game since scandal

  Benches clear in first Astros-Dodgers game since scandal HOUSTON (AP) — Benches cleared Tuesday night in the first game between the Astros and Dodgers since it was revealed that Houston stole signs en route to a 2017 World Series championship that came at Los Angeles' expense. The fracas occurred after Dodgers reliever Joe Kelly threw high-and-tight pitches to Astros stars Alex Bregman and Carlos Correa in the sixth inning. The Dodgers led 5-2 after a five-run fifth when Kelly, who was with Boston in 2017 and also faced Houston that postseason, threw behind Bregman for ball four. Bregman grimaced after jumping to avoid being hit, then trotted to first base.

Joe Kelly says his extra hustle against the Dodgers may stem from his disliking the team as a child.

Kelly has allowed at least one run in five of his six appearances despite changes to his approach.

When the Los Angeles Dodgers squared off with the Houston Astros on Tuesday night everyone wondered how long it would take for one of LA’s pitchers to hit an Astros player with a pitch in retaliation for the cheating that lifted Houston over the Dodgers in the 2017 World Series.
