  • Cubs bring Dodgers crashing back to Earth, take series with 7-3 win

  • Dodgers' Josh Beckett remains ineffective, loses to Cubs, 7-3

    Every time Josh Beckett or Dan Haren take the mound these days, Manager Don Mattingly or General Manager Ned Colletti are asked a variation of the same question: Will the Dodgers make a change to the back end of their rotation? The inquiry was made...

    Dodgers use six-run first inning to beat Cubs, 14-5
    AT THE PLATE: Catcher A.J. Ellis entered the day with only one home run. On Friday, he hit a pair of two-run home runs, including a blast that capped the Dodgers' six-run first inning. The multi-home run game was the second in Ellis' career. The first, in...
  • Dodgers crushed in 10-4 loss to Rockies

    Dodgers crushed in 10-4 loss to Rockies
    So it won’t be easy, or pretty, as the Dodgers try to wrap up the National League West. Against the Colorado Rockies on Tuesday, there were missed scoring chances by the inning, some lousy baserunning, misbegotten throws, an error, a wild pitch...
  • Dodgers pummeled by Rockies, 10-4

    KEY MOMENTS: With two outs and the bases loaded in the sixth inning, Yasiel Puig worked the count full. Puig took a borderline 3-2 pitch that was called a strike by home plate umpire D.J. Reyburn, ending the inning with the Dodgers still trailing, 5-2....
  • Adrian Gonzalez drives in six to power Dodgers past Arizona, 7-2

    Adrian Gonzalez drives in six to power Dodgers past Arizona, 7-2
    If Adrian Gonzalez could face the Diamondbacks every game, he’d be the stuff of legend. They’d compare Hank Aaron and Babe Ruth to him. They wouldn’t name candy bars after him, but ballparks. Gonzalez treated the Diamondbacks on Sunday...
