Clayton Kershaw gets his first start of the second half Saturday evening as the Los Angeles Dodgers continue their three-game series with the Milwaukee Brewers at Miller Park. Injuries to his biceps and back limited Kershaw to 13 starts in the first half, and while he went into the All-Star break with a losing record (3-4) for the first time since his rookie season, the veteran left-hander posted a 2.74 ERA. “I definitely feel healthy these last five starts since I got back,” Kershaw said.

Moments after Yasmani Grandal was cut down at the plate on a nice pickup by catcher Manny Pina, Taylor singled in Chase Utley to give the Dodgers a 2-1 lead.

One by one, the Milwaukee Brewers filed into an auditorium at Miller Park as reliever Josh Hader offered his latest apology for years-old tweets that surfaced during the All-Star Game. Fellow All-Stars Jesus Aguilar of Venezuela and Lorenzo Cain, who is African-American, were among those who stood directly behind Hader during a news conference about 90 minutes before the Brewers returned from the break by hosting the Los Angeles Dodgers. It tells me that they have my back and that we are a true family,” Hader said about the show of solidarity.

Milwaukee Brewers relief pitcher Josh Hader made good on his word, apologizing to his teammates ahead of Friday’s game against the Los Angeles Dodgers after years-old racist and anti-gay tweets surfaced during Tuesday’s All-Star Game. Hader had apologized when speaking to reporters Tuesday night about the controversial comments, and he said he intended to apologize to the team. “I just wanted them to know I’m sorry for what I did back in the day and the mistakes I made,” Hader told reporters after Friday’s meeting.

Manny Machado will be at Miller Park this weekend to open the second half, just not in the way the Milwaukee Brewers were hoping for. The Brewers were among the teams bidding for Machado’s services but ultimately the Los Angeles Dodgers won the sweepstakes, sending five prospects to the Baltimore Orioles on Wednesday to add the All-Star shortstop for the stretch run. Instead of taking at-bats for the Brewers, Machado will be in the starting lineup for the Dodgers at shortstop Friday night in the opener of a three-game series.
