Sometimes you just can't win. Clayton Kershaw said he has been bothered since Friday with a sore hip, but insisted he felt good enough to start Sunday against the Giants. Despite the significance of the game, however, the Dodgers elected to go the cautious route and scratched the reigning National League Cy Young Award winner. Kershaw is now tentatively scheduled to start Tuesday in Arizona. The Dodgers are off Monday. It does, however, line him up to start the opener against the Giants in the Dodgers' final regular-season series.

With "The Office" set to retire May 16 after nine seasons on NBC, series star John Krasinski has been hitting the talk-show circuit. On Tuesday, he stopped by "Late Night," where he recalled the terror he felt his very first day on the show, talked about attending the Met Gala on Monday and, most notably, engaged in an epic lip-syncing battle with host Jimmy Fallon. PHOTOS: Celebrities by The Times The two went head-to-head, hamming it up to a series of hits by Katy Perry, Run DMC, Das EFX and Boys II Men.

NEW YORK - The Angels recalled infielder Andrew Romine from triple-A Salt Lake on Wednesday, creating the potential for a family feud in the final two games of a four-game series against the New York Yankees. Romine is starting at shortstop Wednesday night in place of Erick Aybar, who has a minor left-calf injury and is expected to return Thursday. Romine's younger brother, Austin, is a backup catcher for the Yankees and was not in Wednesday night's lineup but could play Thursday.

The Dodgers do not need scares right now, not at this time of the season, but there it is: Clayton Kershaw has been scratched from Sunday's start and is headed to New York to be examined by a hip specialist. For Kershaw to be out now in the stretch drive, with only 17 games remaining, makes his injury look frighteningly serious. Kershaw, 24, had to miss a key start against Giants last Sunday with the sore right hip following a cortisone injection. He came back to pitch well Tuesday in Arizona, holding the Diamondbacks to one run and three hits in seven innings.

Andre Ethier opened his right hand, revealing a blister on his palm that popped three days earlier. The area of raw skin was about the size of a quarter, the exposed region large enough to cause him significant discomfort in his bottom hand when holding a bat. The ruptured blister was the latest annoyance in what has been a rough few months for the two-time All-Star outfielder. Ethier was batting a season-best .333 on May 30. He had played 63 games since then entering the Dodgers' series finale against the San Francisco Giants on Wednesday.
