  • Dodgers blow lead in ninth but rally to win in 11 innings, 5-3

    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...
  • Dodgers continue turnaround by sweeping Nationals, 9-2

    A month ago, the Dodgers were adrift. Riddled by injury, they were the season’s biggest disappointment —their lineup unproductive, their bullpen unreliable, their rotation in constant flux, their manager’s job status under scrutiny....
  • Dodgers go extra only to lose to Diamondbacks, 8-6

    And then on Wednesday, all was calm. No hit batters, no ejections, no bubbling testosterone. There was just a pretty decent baseball game, ultimately won 8-6 in 12 innings by the Diamondbacks before a Dodger Stadium crowd of 41,927. This marked...
  • New troops can't get Dodgers offense going in 3-0 loss to Pirates

    New troops can't get Dodgers offense going in 3-0 loss to Pirates
    The Dodgers’ refrain: Wait until we get our guys back! Wait for the cavalry! The first wave came Friday, and for one night, the new Dodgers looked a lot like those old Dodgers. Offense continued to be mere rumor, the Dodgers going meekly in a 3-...
  • 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...
  • Dodgers keep rolling, tie club record with 12th straight road win

    Dodgers keep rolling, tie club record with 12th straight road win
    Say this for the Dodgers during their current hot streak -- they’ve been versatile. They squeak out narrow victories, or clobber opponents, or use walk-off heroics. And sometimes, like Friday, they just sort of win. Their 6-2 victory Friday over...
  • Dodgers trying to play it safe with Adrian Gonzalez neck injury [Updated]

    Dodgers trying to play it safe with Adrian Gonzalez neck injury [Updated]
    It’s not so much that they’re making it up as they go with Adrian Gonzalez, as they are constantly ready to adjust on the fly. When you have nine players on the disabled list as the Dodgers do, including starters Hanley Ramirez and Mark...
  • Dodgers keep it going, come back to edge Padres, 2-1

    Dodgers keep it going, come back to edge Padres, 2-1
    The Dodgers have won in a lot of different ways this season, but they haven't specialized in come-from-behind victories. Before Saturday night, they were 5-38 when trailing after six innings. And there they were in the bottom of the seventh inning,...
  • Clayton Kershaw emotional about Mattingly's decision to pull him

    Clayton Kershaw emotional about Mattingly's decision to pull him
    Clayton Kershaw sat on the Dodgers bench, looking up at Manager Don Mattingly and an assistant coach. Up until that point Kershaw had dominated the Yankees lineup three times through. Eight innings. No runs. Five hits. Five strikeouts. The game would...
  • Dodgers juggle lineup another day with Carl Crawford still ill

    Dodgers juggle lineup another day with Carl Crawford still ill
    Dodgers left fielder Carl Crawford was kept out of the starting lineup for the second consecutive game as he continued to fight a fever Sunday that forced him to an emergency room a day earlier. “Obviously, it’s still going on, his...
  • It all feels wrong in the Dodgers' 3-2 loss to the Cubs

    It all feels wrong in the Dodgers' 3-2 loss to the Cubs
    It was all backward, all wrong. The weather was semi-muggy, as if the Dodgers were playing the Cubs in Chicago. The mighty Dodgers offense acted like something the talent-thin Cubs might produce. And Clayton Kershaw looked almost mortal. It all turned...
  • Is the Dodgers' shaky defense a growing problem?

    The Dodgers have bullpen problems and hitting with runners in scoring position problems and health in the rotation problems. And one other little thing: They’re a lousy defensive team. This defensive trouble might come as a surprise. All three...
