    Dodgers' options have been limited by injuries

    Scott Van Slyke has two homers, four RBIs in Dodgers' 6-2 win
    KEY MOMENT: Scott Van Slyke already had hit one home run against left-hander Tony Cingrani when, in the fifth inning, Van Slyke came up with two on and two out. The Reds had right-hander Logan Ondrusek warming up, but they stuck with Cingrani. He gave...
  • Carl Crawford unsure where he fits in Dodgers' outfield

    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...
  • Dan Haren has rough start in Dodgers' 3-2 loss to Nationals

    KEY MOMENT: After a rough first inning, Dan Haren retired nine of the next 10 batters to keep the Dodgers in the game. But that came undone in the fifth when three of the first four batters reached base ahead of a bases-loaded sacrifice fly by Wilson...
  • Dodgers' Yasiel Puig, Dee Gordon exit game because of hip injuries

    For all the problems the Dodgers have encountered this season, they have remained relatively healthy. Until now, perhaps. Yasiel Puig and Dee Gordon sustained hip injuries Saturday at Coors Field, prompting their early exits from a 5-4, 10-inning...
  • Dodgers get 7-2 win over Rockies and better review from Don Mattingly

    When talking about his team's performance Friday night, Don Mattingly was back to using words that could be printed in a family newspaper. With the Dodgers opening a three-game series against the Colorado Rockies with a 7-2 victory at Coors Field,...
  • Will Dodgers respond to Don Mattingly?

    Will Dodgers respond to Don Mattingly?
    There was nothing surprising about Don Mattingly's recent criticism of the Dodgers, other than perhaps the decision to use an obscenity to describe the team. Mattingly tried something like this early last year, when the Dodgers were playing even worse...
  • All systems fail for Dodgers in 13-3 loss to Marlins

    All systems fail for Dodgers in 13-3 loss to Marlins
    Nothing seemed to be working properly at Dodger Stadium on Wednesday. Not the scoreboard, which struggled to keep up with every run the Miami Marlins scored and finally gave out entirely. Not the phone line between the dugout and the bullpen, which...

    Error helps fuel six-run rally in Dodgers' 13-3 loss to Marlins
    KEY MOMENT: There was no score and one out in the second inning, and the Marlins had the bases loaded for pitcher Anthony DeSclafani, batting for the first time in his major league career. He grounded to second base for what should have been a forceout...
