    Dodgers' Josh Beckett has a shaky start in loss to Indians

  • Dodgers activate A.J. Ellis from the disabled list

    Clayton Kershaw, Matt Kemp lead Dodgers past Diamondbacks, 4-3
    Ah, the good ol' days. Matt Kemp hammering the ball, Clayton Kershaw dropping curves that seemed to fall two feet. The Dodgers returned to those thrilling days of yesteryear -- or at least 2011 -- in their 4-3 victory over the Diamondbacks Friday...
