LOS ANGELES -- David Ortiz made two nice catches in a rare start at first base. Oddly enough, he just couldnt help spark the Boston Red Sox at the plate.Ortiz was hitless in three at-bats, Ross Stripling and three relievers combined on a five-hitter and the Red Sox lost to the Los Angeles Dodgers 3-0 on Saturday.Boston is 5-5 on this road trip.We couldnt get anything going offensively, Red Sox manager John Farrell said. This trip has seen games where weve scuffled to not only get a runner in scoring position and get a base hit in that situation, but to string any kind of base hits together, and that was the story line here today.This was Ortizs first start at first base this season. Asked if this loss might keep him from playing the field in the future, Ortiz laughed.Future? What future? The future is right now, he said. Theres no more future, buddy. Have you read the newspaper. Im not playing no more after this season.Since June 24, 2005, the Red Sox had won 40 of 54 interleague games with Ortiz starting at first. The Red Sox had a 47-23 record at NL parks since 2003 with Ortiz at first, compared to 26-29 without him starting at the position.The first ball hit by the Dodgers was a soft liner by Howie Kendrick that forced Ortiz to move to his right for a lunging catch. Ortiz also made a diving grab of Josh Reddicks liner to end the fifth with runners on first and third.Good hands never leave you. Remember that, he said.Yeah, he made two outstanding plays, said Farrell. Its somewhat ironic that he hasnt been on the field in nearly a year, and the first ball that is put in play is a snare of a line drive on his part.Ortiz was replaced by Aaron Hill in the sixth inning.I just didnt want to go three days without playing, but Im okay, Ortiz said. I just got a little sore.Prior to the game, Farrell said he was considering shuffling the Red Sox batting order, including moving Mookie Betts into the No. 3 spot.I dont know. Never done it. I cant say that Ive ever done it in my life, Betts said when asked about possibly batting third. Im sure its going to be something different, but its still another at-bat.Newly promoted Stripling and the Dodgers bullpen combined on a five-hitter, and Adrian Gonzalez got three hits and drove in a run as Los Angeles rebounded from a 9-0 loss to Boston on Friday night.Stripling (3-3) pitched five innings after being called up from the minors when pitcher Bud Norris was put on the disabled list. Making his first start for the Dodgers since May 19, he gave up hits to the first two Boston batters.He was just mixing his pitches, throwing them all for strikes, said Betts, who had two hits. He has a high arm slot, so its kind of hard to pick up. He has a good fastball. It kind of rides through.Eduardo Rodriguez (2-5) gave up three runs and eight hits over 4 1/3 innings.Corey Seager set the Dodgers rookie record with his 31st double of the season, an RBI hit that made it 2-0 in the fifth. He had been tied with Eric Karros (1992).A.J. Ellis got his first RBI since June 27 with a two-out single in the second.DISH DECISIONThe Red Sox may put newly acquired C Bryan Holaday behind the plate Sunday, Farrell said. Holaday was a teammate of Sunday starter David Price in Detroit in 2014-15.Holaday was claimed off waivers from Texas on Friday.There would be no hesitation for Bryan to handle David tomorrow, Farrell said. David had a lot of history with Bryan back from Detroit. Theres a comfort level there.TRAINERS ROOMRed Sox: 2B Dustin Pedroia, who left Friday nights game after fouling a pitch off his left ankle, was still sore Saturday and didnt play.

He struck out as a pinch hitter in the seventh inning Saturday, and Farrell expected him back in the Red Sox lineup on Sunday.NEXT UPRed Sox: LHP David Price (9-7,4.30) enters Sundays start with a 3.15 ERA over his last five outings. He leads the American League with seven double-digit strikeout games.Dodgers: RHP Brandon McCarthy (2-2,2.76) has seen the team lose each of his last four starts, despite him allowing six runs in 17 1/3 innings ( 3.12 ERA).

CINCINNATI -- One trip around the bases has Yu Darvish thinking more like a hitter.Darvish connected for only the second homer by a Rangers pitcher, and Adrian Beltre hit a tiebreaking double in the eighth inning Wednesday night for a 6-5 victory over the Cincinnati Reds and a split of their two-game interleague series.Darvishs solo shot to center field was one of three homers by the Rangers, who wasted a three-run lead before rallying late. Beltres double off Blake Wood (5-2) snapped a 5-5 tie.The right-handers next start will be in an American League game with the DH preventing him from getting to try for an encore.Just take the DH off and let me hit, he said, through a translator.Well, maybe not.If I get another at-bat, I might strike out, he said. I want to keep that (home run) image in my mind.Darvishs big moment came in the fifth when he ended his 0 for 12 career slump. He tipped the bill of his batting helmet as he rounded third base and raised an index finger briefly as he headed for the plate. The only other Rangers pitcher to homer was Bobby Witt in 1997 at Dodger Stadium, in only their third interleague game.The way he did it -- his whole at-bat looked good, Beltre said. That wasnt a cheap home run. He hit it to straight center field.Darvish looked good in batting practice before the game and assured manager Jeff Banister that he could hit.When he came back after hitting the home run, he reminded me that hed told me he could hit, Banister said. Thats a big boy home run to center field. That ball was struck well.Hes the fifth pitcher to homer against the Reds this season.It was just a really bad pitch, something he could handle, pitcher Tim Adleman said.Nomar Mazara had a three-homer, and Ian Desmond followed Darvishs homer in the fifth with one off Adleman.

He hit Adam Duvall and walked two to load the bases. Duvall scored when Ramon Cabrera grounded into a forceout, and another run scored on Jonathan Lucroys passed ball.Shortstop Elvis Andrus throwing error set up another unearned run in the fifth. Cabrera had an RBI double as the Reds tied it with three runs in the sixth, aided by another walk.INTERLEAGUEThe Rangers are 11-6 in interleague play, with their pitchers going 4 for 21 at the plate.
