    Dodgers lean on pitching in 1-0 win over Indians
    ON THE MOUND: Dan Haren allowed only two baserunners in seven innings. He walked David Murphy and gave up an infield hit to Michael Bourn in the third inning, but nothing else. "That's the best I've thrown the ball this year," said Haren, who is...

    Dodgers' Josh Beckett has a shaky start in loss to Indians

    For sake of argument, baseball's replay review system has a downside

    Dodgers don't plan to start Carl Crawford in the outfield
    After 13 months of debate and discussion about how to fit four starting outfielders into three spots, the Dodgers finally have an answer. Yasiel Puig plays right field, Andre Ethier center, Matt Kemp left. Carl Crawford? Left out. The Dodgers flew...
  • There's no follow-up for Dan Haren in Dodgers' 8-7 loss to Rockies

    Tough to get excited in baseball about one performance or even a good beginning to one. Dan Haren was coming off his best start of the year, and Saturday came back with his worst. Rockies pitcher Jorge De La Rosa, who had been miserable against the...

    Clint Robinson's first hit, Dan Haren's pitching lead Dodgers to win

    KEY MOMENT: Adrian Gonzalez singled and Matt Kemp drew a walk with one out in the eighth inning and the Dodgers trailing, 3-2. Miguel Rojas pinch-ran for Gonzalez, but didn't score, as Andre Ethier struck out and Juan Uribe popped up to catcher Tony...
  • Clayton Kershaw shuts down Royals in Dodgers' 2-0 win

    Not that Clayton Kershaw has built unrealistic expectations or anything, but the guy gave up six hits Tuesday. And get this, he walked a batter. He did, however, hold the Kansas City Royals scoreless all night, which was a very good thing because the...
  • Dodgers again flex their muscles against Diamondbacks in 7-0 win

    Dodgers again flex their muscles against Diamondbacks in 7-0 win
    If every team they played were like the Arizona Diamondbacks, the Dodgers would be the ’27 Yankees. They’d be less a team than a legend. Forget cable, network television would demand they be on in prime time. When the Dodgers play the...

    Time for these oh-so-average Dodgers to actually get it rolling
    The Los Angeles Dodgers, most expensive mediocre team in baseball history? Of course, they’re the most expensive any kind of team right now, but are hardly looking like that juggernaut that was supposed to pillage the Nation League on its way to...
