  • Dodgers manager doesn't see Clayton Kershaw as MVP

    Clayton Kershaw for most valuable player? His manager won't be leading the campaign. With the National League lacking a dominant offensive player along the lines of Miguel Cabrera or Mike Trout, Kershaw has emerged as a candidate in a field of solid but...
  • Dodgers score four runs in ninth inning to defeat Rays, 7-6

    The creaky old stadium roared to life, late in the evening, so late that the Dodgers canceled the fireworks show scheduled to follow the game. City curfew and all. No worries. The best show in town was the one on the field. The Dodgers scored four...

    Comeback heightens Dodgers' feeling something special is going on
    Careful now, don’t get too excited. Anyway, try to remember the date and the 47 games still to go and all the strange things that can yet happen. Are you pulling it off? It can be tough after games like Friday's victory over the Tampa Bay Rays....

    Dodgers continue remarkable run with 4-2 win over the Mets
    There hasn't been anything like this in Dodgers history, not only in this century but in the last one as well. With their 4-2 win over the New York Mets at Dodger Stadium on Monday night, the Dodgers are a remarkable 38-8 in their last 46 games. And...

  • Dodgers' wins are the real thing

    Dodgers' wins are the real thing
    This is real. To those sitting in Dodger Stadium late Wednesday night as another comeback victory filled the joint with a dizzying chill, the conclusion was inescapable. For those who kicked over their long-empty plastic cups and nacho trays when...
  • Dodgers drop consecutive games for first time in nearly two months

    It’s panic in the streets! The Dodgers, baseball’s latest world beaters, are in a horrifying slump! They fell, 6-2, on Monday to the lowly Miami Marlins, marking a second consecutive loss -- which is the first time they have lost consecutive...
  • 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...
  • Zack Greinke leads Dodgers past Cubs, 6-2

    Zack Greinke leads Dodgers past Cubs, 6-2
    And then order was restored. All was calm. They worked counts, came up with some timely hits, made no real miscues. It hardly hurt any that the Dodgers had their hottest pitcher – nope, not Clayton Kershaw – on the mound, but they did more...

    Dodgers starting to get ridiculous, rally in ninth, win 5-4 in 12th
    Yeah, right, and apparently pigs can fly. Because the Dodgers can seemingly win every kind of ridiculous game known to man, and a few never before known. The Dodgers won again Wednesday, won in perhaps their most unlikely fashion yet. They won when they...
  • Dodgers are all-time kings of road after 6-2 victory over Cubs

    CHICAGO — The Dodgers have said for weeks what utility man Nick Punto said Friday. "This is a special team," Punto said. This has become more than a belief. The Dodgers are now making history. BOX SCORE: Dodgers 6, Cubs 2 With a 6-2...
  • Dodgers' Hyun-Jin Ryu wants to be NL rookie of the year

    Dodgers' Hyun-Jin Ryu wants to be NL rookie of the year
    CHICAGO — Hyun-Jin Ryu started the season with two goals: to win 10 games and be named the National League rookie of the year. Ryu reached the first of those goals Friday, as he improved to 10-3 in the Dodgers' 6-2 victory over the Chicago Cubs at...
