For all the problems the Dodgers have encountered this season, they have remained relatively healthy.

Justin Turner wasn’t looking like much of a grand Dodgers addition. He seemed light years away from the utility players lost in the off-season, Skip Schumaker and Nick Punto.

The Dodgers do not know when Hanley Ramirez might play again. Maybe Saturday. Maybe not. Maybe he goes on the disabled list.

The trouble with an outstanding performance is trying to follow it. Harper Lee wrote “To Kill a Mockingbird” and called it a career. Steam never could follow up “Na Na Hey Hey Kiss Him Goodbye,” which was a genuine American...

KEY MOMENT: Chone Figgins drew a two-out, 11-pitch walk in the fifth inning to load the bases for Yasiel Puig. But Puig popped out to second base to end the inning and the Dodgers still trailed, 2-0. The Dodgers are now four for 37 this season with the...

This was more like how the Dodgers pictured themselves playing.
Even after Adrian Gonzalez hit a two-run home run in the fifth inning to put them in front, they continued scoring runs. They didn't make any errors on defense. Their bullpen pitched four...

It is worse than last time, the Dodgers placing third baseman Juan Uribe on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right hamstring Wednesday and calling up light-hitting prospect Erisbel Arruebarrena from double-A Chattanooga.
