    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
    Recovering from a career-threatening operation and reinventing himself as a pitcher was only part of Josh Beckett's comeback. Now comes what could be the greatest obstacle: Maintenance. Beckett made one of his least effective starts of the season...

    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...
