The Beard is coming back.
Free-agent right-hander Brian Wilson on Thursday signed a new deal with the Dodgers, a one-year, $10-million contract to return as closer Kenley Jansen's setup man.
Wilson was looking to return to a closer role, but the...

By his standards, Andre Ethier had a fairly quiet first half. Not horrific, just not up to his standards.
He has willingly played every outfield position without complaint, but a .268 batting average, five home runs and 28 runs batted in in the first...

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.

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...

The Dodgers need to watch that seventh inning.
It can be a lu-lu.
In the by-the-numbers book late-inning baseball has become, the Dodgers have Brian Wilson to take care of the eighth inning and closer Kenley Jansen for the ninth.
That's the script,...

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...

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...

This was supposed to be Clayton Kershaw's night. It turned into Juan Uribe's.
Uribe launched an eighth-inning offering by David Carpenter high into the October sky, sending the Dodgers to 4-3 victory over the Atlanta Braves and to the National League...

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...

Things had been going so incredibly well for the Dodgers, it had to be humbling. It had to be foreign and irritating, but mostly humbling.
The Dodgers, who have been the best team in the major leagues for more than two months, were swept by the...

They each lifted their dirt-caked sleeves into the air as if raising an entire city above them.
Yasiel Puig shot a line drive into the right-field corner, scampering and sliding into second base, leaping up with a howl, throwing his arms high.

It was taunt and tense. It was a sweaty, nervous little game.
And ultimately, one extremely frustrating game for the Los Angeles Dodgers.
The Dodgers lost the opener of the National League Championship Series, 3-2 in 13 innings, on Friday night when...
