Houston’s McCullers leaves game with elbow discomfort
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Houston starter Lance McCullers Jr. left a game against the Dodgers because of right elbow discomfort.
The right-hander gave up two hits in four innings, struck out five and walked two before departing Saturday night.
The Astros were leading 1-0 when McCullers walked off while pointing to his right arm.
They added four runs in the sixth to take a 5-0 lead.
McCullers was back on the mound at Dodger Stadium for the first time since starting Game 7 of last year’s World Series, when the Astros beat Los Angeles.
He had lost his previous three starts.
