    Yasiel Puig closes out record-setting first month

    Dodgers' winning streak ends at five in 3-0 loss to Rockies

    Hyun-Jin Ryu leads Dodgers to 3-0 victory over Cardinals in Game 3

    Jon Jay's defensive lapses prove costly for Cardinals in 3-0 loss to Dodgers
    Jon Jay was the last Cardinals player out of the shower Monday, which is understandable because there were a lot of things he needed to wash away. Like the memories of Mark Ellis' fourth-inning fly ball that he let drop for a double, setting up a two-...

    Dodgers blow lead in ninth but rally to win in 11 innings, 5-3
    Say this for the Dodgers, they may not win a lot, but when they do, they tend to make it interesting. They seemed all set to win a routine game Saturday -- getting great starting pitching, a spurt of timely hitting and even a game-saving defensive...
  • Hanley Ramirez, Andre Ethier make sure Cardinals hurt worse

    Hanley Ramirez, Andre Ethier make sure Cardinals hurt worse
    More than two hours before Monday's first pitch, amid the early stirrings of a stadium on the brink, two men made a single quiet decision. They each announced it alone. They each spoke while wincing in pain. There were no fans around to cheer it....

    Hyun-Jin Ryu gets big win, and save, in Dodgers' 3-0 NLCS Game 3 victory

    Yasiel Puig displays all his talents, and emotions, in Dodgers' win
    For the true baseball fan, Cuba is a mecca. There are no giant video screens with animated hands demanding that you clap. There are no overcaffeinated and overamplified cheerleaders pressuring you to make some noise. In Cuba, there is no artificial...
  • A.J. Ellis has five RBIs to lead Dodgers past Blue Jays, 14-5

    And on it goes, the Dodgers – yawn – winning again, setting a season-high this, a career-high that. Despite Matt Kemp's being out with a sprained ankle and Yasiel Puig still acting mortal (at least at the plate), the Dodgers kept rolling...
