"Up-and-in changeup slipped out of my hand," he said.
"We know that Kennedy's not trying to hit Hanley," Mattingly said. "That was a changeup. They were just trying to get in. That's nothing."
Nolasco's two-out single to right brought in the game's first run in the second. A.J. Ellis and Skip Schumaker singled to start the inning, then Jerry Hairston Jr. grounded into a double play, leaving a runner at third with two outs as the pitcher came to the plate.
Andre Ethier led off the Dodgers fourth with a single. With Ethier running on the play, Ellis struck out but Montero's throw to second sailed into center field and Ethier wound up at third with one out. With the infield playing in to cut off the run, Schumaker bounced one to second, but Hill dropped the ball, ruining any chance for a play at the plate. Schumaker was thrown out at first, but the unearned run scored to make it 2-0.
Nolasco opened the fifth with a double to right-center, then Carl Crawford reached on a bunt single and Puig walked to load the bases with no outs. Gonzalez lofted one to deep center, where Eaton lost his footing on the warning track and as he fell to the ground the ball popped out of his glove for an error. Two runs scored to make it 4-0.
Puig came barreling around third on the play and attempted to score, but Montero took the relay throw from shortstop Didi Gregorius. Puig shoved Montero as the tag was applied, then the two stared at each other as the young Dodgers star walked toward the dugout.
"He plays with a lot of arrogance," Kennedy said. "I don't know if he was trying to run (Montero) over or what."
After Kennedy walked two to load the bases in the sixth, Gonzalez's two-run single off Tony Sipp broke it open at 6-0.
Gregorius robbed Schumaker with a soaring grab of a line drive to end the Los Angeles seventh.
NOTES: Kennedy leads the NL with 10 hit batters. Detroit RHP Doug Fister leads the majors with 13. ... Arizona 3B Eric Chavez was a late scratch with a sore hip. ... Los Angeles pitchers have five hits in the first two games of the series. ... Seeking a sweep, the Dodgers send Ryu (7-3, 2.82 ERA) to the mound and Arizona counters with Tyler Skaggs (2-1, 3.65) in a matchup of left-handers Wednesday night.
