    Dodgers find reason to smile in 9-4 victory over Padres

  • Dodgers lose a marathon, 8-5, to Nationals in 14 innings

    Baseball, such a stupid game. Such an impossible, wonderful, completely insane game. It was all that and still more on a surreal Wednesday afternoon at Dodger Stadium. It wasn’t one game, it was about seven. Had more twists than 10 Agatha Christie...
