  • Dodgers go big and go home in streak-ending 16-1 loss to Phillies

    The Dodgers could not have ended their season-best six-game winning streak any more spectacularly. Their 16-1 defeat to the Philadelphia Phillies on Friday night marked their most one-sided home loss ever in Los Angeles. That's right: ever. The last...
  • Dodgers prospect Joc Pederson might be top trade bait

    NEW YORK — As May turned to June, the Dodgers needed a center fielder. Matt Kemp's hamstring had given out on him. The Dodgers liked Skip Schumaker in center field for a day or two, but no way for a month. They did not like any of their center...

  • 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...
  • The top 5 matchups in last night's Dodgers-Diamondbacks brawl

  • Zack Greinke nearly perfect in Dodgers' 1-0 win over Rockies

    It wasn’t perfect, but it was pretty close. Zack Greinke, the Dodgers' $147-million man, threw a two-hit shutout, all while taking a perfect game into the fifth inning for the Dodgers' 17th win in 21 games. Greinke (8-2) threw only 110 pitches,...
