PHOENIX -- The Arizona Diamondbacks emerged from the All-Star break the same way they went into it -- with a loss.Patrick Corbin lasted only four innings and the Los Angeles Dodgers pounded Arizona pitching for a season-high 18 hits in their 13-7 victory Friday night.The Diamondbacks lost their fifth straight and 13th in the last 15 games.Chris Taylor, acquired by Los Angeles in a trade with Seattle a month ago, fell a single shy of the cycle, and Bud Norris finally beat Arizona.Taylor, a utility infielder recalled from Triple-A Oklahoma City on June 25, tripled in the fourth, doubled in the fifth and hit a grand slam in the sixth, his first career home run. He was thrown out on a bunt in the eighth.Norris (5-7) entered 0-7 with a 13.92 ERA against the Diamondbacks but ended the drought with the help of the Dodgers offensive outburst. The right-hander went five innings, allowing five runs, four earned, and eight hits.Its a tough place to pitch, he said. I personally have struggled here a few times, so I just wanted to go as deep as I could, kind of just leave all my pitches out there.Corbin (4-8) gave up seven runs, six earned, and seven hits. He struck out seven but walked three.It is just frustrating, he said. It is not the way I liked it to turn out. I just have to move past it and get better.Corbin said his biggest problem is not getting ahead of hitters like I have in the past.It is leading to walks and hitters counts, he said. It is something I need to get better on.The Diamondbacks took a 3-2 lead with three runs in the third, two on Michael Bourns triple, but as has been the case so often this season, gave it up in the very next inning.It is very tough mentally, Arizona manager Chip Hale said. It is one of the things we talked about over the break and talked to the players about today and yesterday. I thought we did a nice job of continuing to play. Our guys battled.The Dodgers scored five in the fourth, with two scoring on Taylors triple. Yasiel Puig singled in two more before being thrown out trying to stretch it into a double.Los Angeles loaded the bases with no outs in the sixth. Silvino Bracho struck out the next two, but Taylor hit one into the seats beyond left field and the Dodgers led 12-4.In the eighth, needing only a single, Taylor chose to lay down a bunt and was thrown out by the pitcher.I thought it was a good time, the situation, he said. They had the third baseman back and its always been a part of my game, regardless of the hits (I had). I think you put me in that situation again Im still going to try it. Its something I take pride in.Third baseman Jake Lambs two errors in the third led to an unearned Los Angeles run.The Diamondbacks fell to 15-33 at home.KERSHAW CLOSERDodgers ace Clayton Kershaw is inching closer to a return.Kershaw, sidelined since June 27 with a mild disk herniation, will throw a simulated game in Los Angeles on Saturday. Manager Dave Roberts said Kershaw will throw 60 pitches.Before he was hurt, Kershaw, as usual, was one of the games best pitchers, going 11-2 with a 1.79 ERA.TRAINERS ROOMDodgers: Roberts said a bone scan Friday of OF Andre Ethiers right tibia showed the fracture has not completely healed but its healed enough that Andre, to his tolerance, can continue to progress with baseball activity. Roberts said the Dodgers will ramp him up and see where it takes us. ... LHP Alex Wood (posterior elbow) will pitch in the same simulated game as Kershaw.Diamondbacks: RHP Zack Greinke (strained oblique) played catch Thursday night, the first time hes done so since the injury.UP NEXTDodgers: RHP Brandon McCarthy (2-0, 2.70 ERA) makes his third start since coming back from Tommy John surgery, facing his former team for the first time.Diamondbacks: RHP Archie Bradley (3-5, 4.64), coming off a strong but losing effort against San Francisco, makes the start for Arizona in the second game of the three-game series.

Nike Running Shoes Clearance Sale .Y. -- Bills receiver Stevie Johnson has a bone to pick with the NFL schedule maker. JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The Jacksonville Jaguars can reach another miserable milestone Sunday against Denver.With a loss to the defending Super Bowl champion Broncos (7-4), the Jaguars (2-9) would become the fifth team in NFL history to post double-digit losses in six consecutive seasons.Its a dubious distinction Jacksonville surely would rather avoid. To do that, though, the Jags need to win out. That seems like an ultra-long shot for a team that has lost six in a row and already secured its ninth consecutive non-winning season.Its definitely frustrating because you always think year after year that this could be the year to turn things around, and when things dont go the way you expect, its so easy to get down, said veteran defensive end Tyson Alualu, one of three guys who have been on Jacksonvilles roster for six seasons. This is by far the most talented team Ive been a part of. We know thats not the issue.That just shows that this is a team that could be a contender in this league and we just have to find answers to how we need to finish games and win games.Only four others have lost as consistently often as the Jaguars. Tampa Bay had 12 consecutive seasons (1983-94) with double-digits losses. Detroit (2001-06), Oakland (2003-09) and Cleveland (2008-13) werent nearly as inept as the Buccaneers, but they still managed to post at least six straight seasons with 10 or more losses.The Jaguars seem like a lock to join the exclusive -- and depressive -- club. After all, they are winless in four games at EverBank Field this year and havent beaten a team thats finished with a winning record since 2012.Jacksonville seemingly will catch a break with Broncos quarterback Trevor Siemian sidelined because of a sprained left foot, leaving rookie Paxton Lynch to make his second career start and first on the road.Denver needs a victory to keep pace in the crowded AFC playoff picture. Coach Gary Kubiaks team has dropped four of its last seven games, including two of three on the road. The Broncos trail Oakland and Kansas City in the AFC West.I dont pay attention to that stuff, star linebacker Von Miller said. We just are trying to put our best football out there. That is all we can do. We still have five weeks left. It is a long way. Taking it one game at a time, playing as good as we possibly can and whatever happens, happens.The Jaguars, meanwhile, continue to play hard despite mounting losses and speculation about coach Gus Bradleys job security. Players, though, seem to realize theyre playing out the string down the stretch.ddddddddddddEvery time you come to work, its like a job interview because these coaches go other places, Alualu said. This league is all about what have you done for me lately, so its about producing on the field and making plays if you want to stick around.Here are some other things to know about the Broncos and Jaguars:GROUNDED GROUND GAME: The Broncos struggling ground game took another huge hit when battering ram rookie fullback Andy Janovich underwent season-ending surgery on his left ankle Tuesday. When healthy, Janovich added toughness to the group thats been missing since C.J. Andersons knee surgery in October. The Broncos likely will play more two-tight end sets now with A.J. Derby and Virgil Green.PLUCKING BRONCOS: The Jaguars have signed a free agent from Denver in each of the last three seasons, and only defensive tackle Malik Jackson has panned out . Jacksonville signed guard Zane Beadles to a five-year, $30 million contract in 2014 that included $12.5 million guaranteed. Beadles struggled and was cut after two seasons. Jacksonville gave tight end Julius Thomas a five-year, $46 million deal last year that included $24 million guaranteed. Thomas missed four games in 2015 because of a broken bone in his hand and two more this year because of elbow and back injuries.BRONCOS INFIGHTING: Kubiak insists the incident was an emotional, heat-of-the-moment thing, but Aqib Talibs shove of Jordan Norwood after the returners second muffed punt last weekend might foretell fractures in the locker room. Denvers dazzling defense has carried an inept offense and inconsistent special teams all season, just like last year. Talib said he apologized and Norwood said he accepted. The Broncos own the best pass defense in the league and are fourth in total defense, but their offense is 19th because their O-line cant protect the passer or bore holes for running backs.DEPLETED BACKFIELD: The Jaguars would like to keep the ball on the ground against Denver, which ranks 27th against the run. But running back Chris Ivory (hamstring) wont play and backup T.J. Yeldon is still recovering from an ankle injury. So Jacksonville might have to count on seldom-used reserve Denard Robinson.---For more NFL coverage: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP-NFL ' ' '
