Dodgers bedecked in pink for Mother's Day

LOS ANGELES -- Clayton Kershaw and Justin Turner recorded base hits using pink bats in Sunday's Mother's Day game against the Giants, catcher Drew Butera wore protective gear trimmed in pink and four Dodgers wore pink spikes in a salute to breast cancer awareness.

Yasiel Puig, Carl Crawford, Matt Kemp, Kenley Jansen and Butera sported pink-trimmed shoes, and many Dodgers wore pink sleeves and sweatbands, including manager Don Mattingly.

Several others used the pink bats in their first plate appearance but went back to their regular gear.
