• The Dodgers lead the NL with 197 homers while Miami, which was swept in a three-game series by Los Angeles last month, has hit the fewest in baseball with 99. Second baseman Starlin Castro is 14-for-27 during a six-game hitting streak and had two homers and eight RBIs as the Marlins split a four-game set with NL East leader Atlanta.

• May was previously lined up for Wednesday, but the Dodgers decided to flip flop him with ace Clayton Kershaw. May allowed one run over 5 2/3 innings against the Cardinals last week and got a no decision in that start.

• Yamamoto posted a 3-0 mark with a combined six earned runs allowed over his first five major league starts before hitting a slump over the past three weeks. The 23-year-old Hawaiian fell to 0-3 with an 8.55 ERA in his last four turns after giving up four runs over six innings at the New York Mets on Wednesday. After not surrendering a homer in his first five starts, he’s served up six in the last four, including two in a four-inning loss to the Dodgers on July 21.

• Dodgers rookie C Will Smith has 22 RBIs in his last 17 games.

• Marlins rookie INF Jon Berti is batting .357 with six multiple-hit games this month.

• Dodgers 3B Justin Turner, who homered twice Sunday, is a career .349 hitter versus Miami.
