LOS ANGELES — Justin Verlander stomped his way into the sixth inning, looking for more grapes.

He had ended the last three innings with strikeouts. He had given the Dodgers one hit and no walks, except for a lot of head-down walks back to the dugout.

He had struck out Cody Bellinger twice, dropped an obscene curveball to eliminate Joc Pederson.

“I didn’t really feel like I was really going at it,” Verlander said. “But I’d look up at the scoreboard and it would say 98 (mph).”
