Trent Grisham had two singles, an RBI and a stolen base Wednesday against the Brewers. Grisham's one-out single in the third inning plated the game's first run, and he then immediately swiped his third base of the season. He also led off the fifth with a single but was retired on a force out. He got a late start to the season because of a hamstring injury, but Grisham has hit the ground running since then, boasting a .954 OPS with three homers and three steals through his first 11 contests.

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said he expects Mookie Betts (forearm) to return Thursday against the Padres. Betts was held out of Tuesday's matinee game in Seattle after taking a pitch off his right forearm in the ninth inning Monday night. It's convenient that the defending World Series champions have a scheduled team off day on Wednesday ahead of Thursday's big series opener versus San Diego.
