Yanks go down in order. Mariano Rivera enters the game looking for his 25th save of the season. The Dodgers need to get a runner on base to get Yasiel Puig to the plate.
AP is reporting that Derek Jeter took batting practice on the field today for the first time since suffering a broken ankle in October.
Robertson finds the zone and escapes the eighth inning. Yankees fans can exhale a bit with Mo set to come in for the save.
David Robertson walks Uribe on four pitches and can't find the strike zone. Girardi isn't going to use Mariano Rivera in the eighth inning with another game to play tonight.
David Robertson walks Andre Ethier to bring the tying run to the plate in Juan Uribe.
DH Hanley Ramirez rips a line drive home run to left field off Preston Claiborne to make it 6-4 Yankees. Ramirez is 4 for 4 today and hitting .343 in just 34 at-bats this season.
Ichiro robs Adrian Gonzalez of an extra-base hit and crashes into the wall. What a day for the 39-year-old Ichiro.
Puig laces one up the middle than beats the throw to second base. This guy is awesome. He's 2 for 4 today and hitting .481 on the season.
Fun Fact: Puig has drawn just one walk in the first 54 plate appearances of his career.
The game might be all but over, but Puig leads off the top of the eighth inning. Puigmania!
Ichiro drives in two runs with a bloop base hit to left field. That should just about do it.
Belisario is charged with two errors on the play. The Dodgers have tied a season-high with four errors today. Yes, they have to play another one tonight.
Ronald Belisario botches a Vernon Wells' jam shot and throws it into center field. E-1. Then, he hits Thomas Neal. Your 2013 Los Angeles Dodgers, ladies and gents.
As he comes to the plate, Vernon Wells is in a very bad, no good, awful slump:
Since his final at-bat on May 22, Vernon Wells is 9-for-83 (.108) with one walk, one double, three RBI and 14 strikeouts. Ouch.— Mark Feinsand (@FeinsandNYDN) June 19, 2013
Kelley fans Nick Punto to get out of the jam. He's now stranded 15 of 16 inherited runners this season.
Kuroda's final line: 6.2 IP, 107 pitches, 2 ER, 2 Ks, 8 hits, 1 walk
Pinch-hitter Jerry Hairston drives in Andre Ethier with a single to make it 3-2. Shawn Kelley comes into the game as Kuroda is done for the day.
A.J. Ellis' sacrifice fly gets the Dodgers on the board. First and third, 2 outs. 3-1 Yankees.
Based loaded, one out for the Dodgers. Let's see if they can convert another great chance into runs.
Hanley Ramirez is now 3 for 3 with two singles and a double. He has half of LA's hits.
After six innings, that likely does it for Ryu who threw 110 pitches and allowed three earned runs. He finished with four strikeouts, five hits and two walks.
Ichiro puts one into the short porch in right field for his third homer of the season. That's just the second home run Ryu has given up to a lefty.
Puig lashes a one-hopper which is snagged by Robinson Cano who throws him out from his knees. Puig could easily be 3 for 3 today, but he has just one knock.
