LOS ANGELES (AP) — Mookie Betts’ two-run homer highlighted a four-run fifth inning and the Dodgers defeated Houston 8-1 with angry Los Angeles fans letting the Astros have it again. The Dodgers took three of four in this shortened season from the team that beat them in the 2017 World Series, after which the Astros’ cheating scandal was revealed.
