    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...

    Clayton Kershaw strikes out 12 as Dodgers defeat Braves, 6-1
    The Dodgers looked like that team from midsummer that stormed to the top of the division, while Clayton Kershaw looked a lot like the pitcher they’ve seen all season. It all proved too much for the Atlanta Braves, who saw the Dodgers jump out to a...
  • Carl Crawford back, Hanley Ramirez out as Dodgers go for clincher

    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...

    With Matt Kemp and Hanley Ramirez back, Dodgers roll to 9-3 win
    There now, feel better? Those Dodgers, suddenly all adrift and looking lost, got it together in a big way Tuesday night in a 9-3 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks to snap their four-game losing streak. Amazing what getting a couple of big bats...
  • Matt Kemp, Hanley Ramirez return to Dodgers lineup

    Matt Kemp, Hanley Ramirez return to Dodgers lineup
    Mr. Kemp, meet Mr. Ramirez. Manager Don Mattingly did this weird thing prior to Tuesday’s game against the Diamondbacks. He handed in a real, live lineup. Matt Kemp, the guy they thought was still running too tentatively with that sore hamstring...
  • Scott Van Slyke's homer lifts Dodgers to 5-3 win over Diamondbacks

    Scott Van Slyke's homer lifts Dodgers to 5-3 win over Diamondbacks
    And now a voice from the Dodgers’ not-so-distant past. Scott Van Slyke, who has seemingly spent half his season jettisoning up and down between the Dodgers and the minors this season, was summoned to pinch-hit in the 11th inning Tuesday in game...

    Mark Ellis, wife, reach out to stricken family after son's death
    CINCINNATI — The youngest of Mark Ellis' three children is a 2-year-old girl named Dylan. So when Sarah Ellis, wife of the Dodgers' second baseman, read about the death of an 8-year-old Indiana boy named Dylan Williams following a baseball...
  • Dodgers drop consecutive games for first time in nearly two months

    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

    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...
