Brandon League faced five batters in a scoreless inning for Triple-A Oklahoma City on Saturday night. The right-hander allowed a single, double and struck out one in what’s expected to be his penultimate rehab game.
League is scheduled to pitch Monday for the Dodgers’ top affiliate before he is activated from the 60-day disabled list. He hasn’t pitched this season due to a shoulder injury.

MIAMI — The outfield at Marlins Park was an unforgiving place Saturday, and defense cost the Dodgers in a 3-2 loss. Clayton Kershaw didn’t get too hung up on an unfortunate factoid, that he’d never lost three straight games before in his career.
The box score is here.
The Giants’ win over the Rockies means the Dodgers are 1 game up in the National League West. The Dodgers have been in sole possession of first place 64 of the last 65 days.

MIAMI — Yasiel Puig will return to the Dodgers’ starting lineup Sunday after missing four straight games with a hand injury.
“I think his hand’s good,” Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said. “I just really wanted to — I know we have a day game tomorrow, I want to play him for that. I figure give him one more day.”
Puig pinch hit for the second straight day Saturday against the Marlins and grounded out in the seventh inning. He’s been battling an exposed callus on his left palm.
