LOS ANGELES -- Ross Stripling wasnt blowing away the Arizona hitters, so when his velocity dipped the rookie gave way to the bullpen.The Dodgers relief corps combined with Stripling on a four-hitter and he helped himself with a go-ahead single in the second inning, leading Los Angeles to a 5-2 victory Tuesday night, the teams fourth straight.I heard my velocity was down. Maybe just one of those days, Stripling said. Maybe a weird day. I was happy to get through five.

The right-hander struck out five and walked none.I didnt want him pushing it, Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said. I saw his velocity dip down in the fourth.

Miller committed to the Aggies to play baseball, but instead signed with St. Louis after being drafted in 2009.Thats pretty funny, Stripling said. I squeaked it right by that bag.

I would not have protested if I was not 100 percent correct on this. This is a misinterpretation of a rule. It was very clear. Phil Cuzzi, the home plate umpire, had Mondesi running inside the line in jeopardy the whole way and stated that its OK, because he was stepping back toward the bag, which is wrong.Cuzzi said he couldnt comment because of the pending protest, according to The Orange County Register.Matt Shoemaker, who did not allow a base runner until the fifth inning, yielded singles to Alex Gordon and Paulo Orlando to start the seventh. Mondesi, who was called up Tuesday, put down a bunt and beat the throw to first as the throw by Shoemaker (5-11) ricocheted off Mondesi and sailed into right field.The question wasnt if the throw impeded him or he impeded the throww, Scioscia said.dddddddddddd It wasnt if he was running inside. Its what I believe is his misinterpretation of the rule, given the guidelines that he gave me. Theres no judgement involved. He admitted that [Mondesi] was inside the line. In Phils head, he wasnt in jeopardy, because he was stepping toward the bag, which is wrong. Thats the basis of the protest.Both runners scored, and Mondesi wound up on third. Jarrod Dyson?then rifled a triple to right, scoring Mondesi and making all the runs earned. Dyson scored on Alcides Escobars sacrifice fly.Shoemaker questioned whether he should have thrown to first.A bunt right back to me, he should be out, Shoemaker said. But he was so quick, he was going to be safe anyway. I should have held onto it.After a 6 minute, 15 second review, the call on the field was not changed.Royals manager Ned Yost said there is no way the protest would be upheld.You cant protest a judgmental call, Yost said. Ive never protested a game. Ive never been part of a game that was protested.Information from The Associated Press was used in this report. ' ' '
