When the Dodgers take the early lead, they normally win.
Trouble was, little about Friday seemed normal to the Dodgers, except perhaps Hanley Ramirez hitting another home run.
But after Ramirez hit his two-run homer in the first inning, the Dodgers...

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...

The Dodgers can actually afford to lose a few games, but players suddenly falling by the wayside are another matter.
The Dodgers did lose Friday, 4-2, to the San Francisco Giants before a Dodger Stadium crowd of 52,650.
Yet with the Arizona...

One day after almost everything went right for the Dodgers, precious little did.

It was taunt and tense. It was a sweaty, nervous little game.

The Dodgers could have imagined a lot of scenarios for their Game 6 Friday night and never come up with the one that actually unfolded.
Not in the wildest dreams or darkest nightmares. Clayton Kershaw almost melting. Their defense unable to make a play....

There were the numbers of the day, the ones that showed them dropping the Twins, 6-4, on a cold, rainy Wednesday night in Minneapolis.

SAN FRANCISCO — Chris Withrow had a 2.60 earned-run average as a rookie last season. He hasn't given up a single run in his six relief appearances this year.
But the hard-throwing 25-year-old right-hander isn't comfortable.

That hurts. Not sure what, but something. Something bothersome enough to land a reliever on the disabled list.
Chris Withrow has been one the Dodgers’ best and most valuable relievers this season. In his first six appearances (seven innings) he&...
