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...

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 scoreboard must be a depressing place for the Arizona Diamondbacks these days. Every time they look at it, it must seem the Dodgers are winning.
Because clearly, that is all the Dodgers do these days. Win against the weak and strong, against the...

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...

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...

Tuneups, that’s where the Dodgers are at. Fine tuning, healing, getting any bugs out before they start the postseason.
Not a bad start Saturday in their 4-0 victory over the Padres in San Diego.
If Clayton Kershaw was any more finely tuned he&...

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...

As much entertainment as Yasiel Puig has provided in his three weeks with the Dodgers, his presence hasn't had a pronounced effect on the team's win-loss record.
Until now, perhaps.
By virtue of a 3-1 victory over the San Francisco Giants at Dodger...

In all the pandemonium of the Dodgers-Diamondbacks seventh-inning brawl Tuesday night, it was hard to tell exactly who landed a punch on whom. Lucky for us, there’s video replay (complete with Vin Scully live play-by-play: “No sense in calling...
