    Dodgers keep rolling, tie club record with 12th straight road win

    There's no one formula as Dodgers weigh how best to use final days
    Hmm, what to do, what to do? I would love to tell you exactly what the right thing is for Manager Don Mattingly to do over the season’s final eight games, but I don’t know. Neither do you nor Mattingly nor anyone else on this planet. It&...

  • 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...

    Dodgers roll a lucky number in whipping Braves, 13-6,  in Game 3
    The game looked like it wanted to go in dozen different directions all at once, squirming and squealing all over the place, unable to lay claim to anything but a wild ride. And then the Dodgers suddenly seem to say enough, that they had other things...

    Dodgers' A.J. Ellis: So what if Cardinals' Yadier Molina missed tag?
    ST. LOUIS -- To a large segment of the Dodgers fan base, this was an outrage: Mark Ellis slid home with the potential go-ahead run on Friday, and replays appeared to indicate that St. Louis Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina might have missed the tag. It...

    Carl Crawford back, Hanley Ramirez out as Dodgers go for clincher
    They’re in, they’re out, they’re somewhere. Don Mattingly posted the lineup he hopes will clinch the National League West on Wednesday, and once again players were coming and going. Back after being out since Saturday with a bad back...

    Dodgers defeat Braves, 4-3, to advance to NLCS
    Juan Uribe, almost booed out of town after two disappointing seasons with the Dodgers, continued his redemption in dramatic fashion. Uribe hit a two-run homer in the bottom of the eighth to give the Dodgers a 4-3 comeback victory Monday night at...
