  • Yasiel Puig singles, scores upon entering game for Dodgers

    Yasiel Puig singles, scores upon entering game for Dodgers
    Yasiel Puig was held out of the Dodgers' lineup for the second consecutive day, but he made an appearance as a pinch-hitter in the fifth inning of Sunday’s game against the Colorado Rockies. Puig, who received a rousing ovation when he appeared in...
  • Dodgers' Yasiel Puig hits go-ahead home run in 6-4 win over Marlins

    Clearly, Yasiel Puig is not going to do anything in typical fashion. Not his throws, not his baserunning and not being sent to the doghouse. Dramatics are the order of his day, every day. Puig was benched prior to Tuesday’s game with the Miami...
  • Yasiel Puig sits, Scott Van Slyke optioned, Stephen Fife starts

    Yasiel Puig and his sore hand were out of the lineup Sunday, which sounds kind of scary but probably isn’t. The Dodgers must think it’s a fairly minor injury, because before their game against the Cubs, they optioned outfielder Scott Van...
  • Hanley Ramirez expected to start Wednesday; Andre Ethier scratched

    Hanley Ramirez expected to start Wednesday; Andre Ethier scratched
    About thoseĀ plans thatĀ if Hanley Ramirez didn’t start Tuesday, the Dodgers would just hold him another day to take advantage of Thursday’s off-day? Turns out, that was Monday’s plan. On Tuesday, Ramirez remained out of the lineup...
  • Dodgers have Kyle Kendrick's number

    Dodgers have Kyle Kendrick's number
    The Dodgers own Phillies starter Kyle Kendrick. Their starting lineup Sunday had a career .348 batting average, .402 on-base percentage and .596 slugging percentage split against the right-handed Kendrick (7-4, 3.46 earned-run average), who took the...
  • Cardinals, Lance Lynn too tough for Dodgers in 7-0 loss

    Seems it was a bad night for grit and fight. Certainly Friday didn’t offer much for left-hander Chris Capuano, or for Dodgers news, unless you count another loss. Suppose you have to. The Dodgers went ever so meekly against the Cardinals and...
  • Dodgers, Diamondbacks meet in first series since June 11 brawl

    Dodgers, Diamondbacks meet in first series since June 11 brawl
    This could get interesting. The Dodgers open a three-game set against the Arizona Diamondbacks in Phoenix on Monday night, their first series meeting since engaging in an epic, benches-clearing brawl June 11. In that game, Arizona starter Ian...
  • Dodgers walk off with wild victory against Braves, 2-1

    The Dodgers won in walk-off fashion. And believe it or not, Yasiel Puig had nothing to do with the late-game heroics. He was standing in the on-deck circle as Juan Uribe stood at the plate with runners on the corners and one out. Braves reliever Anthony...
  • Dodgers starting to get ridiculous, rally in ninth, win 5-4 in 12th

    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 waste no time, put Matt Kemp on DL with hamstring strain

    This time the Dodgers are not going to dance around with Matt Kemp and his hamstring issue. This time they wasted no time in placing him on the disabled list. Kemp strained his right hamstring Wednesday night chasing down a Mike Trout hit in the gap and...
  • Dodgers: Matt Kemp benched for day, not bound for disabled list

    Matt Kemp was not in the Dodgers' starting lineup Sunday, one day after expressing his anger about being removed from Saturday's game as part of a double-switch. Manager Don Mattingly called the move "a baseball decision" and said the benching was not...
  • 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...
