Matt Kemp ejected in Dodgers' 3-2 extra-inning win over the Rangers

Maeda was tasked with protecting the lead. He was pitching for the first time since May 29, when he experienced tightness and discomfort around his right hip. An MRI revealed a muscle strain and sent Maeda to the disabled list. He joined a squadron of fellow starting pitchers, a group that included Clayton Kershaw, Hyun-Jin Ryu and Rich Hill. The list of sidelined starters would soon swell to include rookies Walker Buehler and Dennis Santana.
