PITTSBURGH — Manager Don Mattingly said he expects Yasiel Puig to remain in the major leagues for the remainder of the season.

The Dodgers won in walk-off fashion. And believe it or not, Yasiel Puig had nothing to do with the late-game heroics.
He was standing in the on-deck circle as Juan Uribe stood at the plate with runners on the corners and one out. Braves reliever Anthony...

And then on Wednesday, all was calm. No hit batters, no ejections, no bubbling testosterone.
There was just a pretty decent baseball game, ultimately won 8-6 in 12 innings by the Diamondbacks before a Dodger Stadium crowd of 41,927.

The Dodgers’ refrain: Wait until we get our guys back! Wait for the cavalry!
The first wave came Friday, and for one night, the new Dodgers looked a lot like those old Dodgers.
Offense continued to be mere rumor, the Dodgers going meekly in a 3-...

So really, honestly, this time it could be different? This time a Dodgers team finally approaching full strength and buoyed by the arrival of phenom Yasiel Puig could actually be readying a real run?

Yawn, another day, another Dodgers’ walk-off victory. Just so routine.
This time, though, it came against the New York Yankees, which at least made Tuesday’s 3-2 victory before a sellout crowd of 52,447 just a tad sweeter.

Clayton Kershaw sat on the Dodgers bench, looking up at Manager Don Mattingly and an assistant coach. Up until that point Kershaw had dominated the Yankees lineup three times through. Eight innings. No runs. Five hits. Five strikeouts.
The game would...

Say this for the Dodgers during their current hot streak -- they’ve been versatile.
They squeak out narrow victories, or clobber opponents, or use walk-off heroics. And sometimes, like Friday, they just sort of win.
Their 6-2 victory Friday over...

The lights were wrong and the throws were wrong, and this whole Dodger Stadium thing just looked wrong.
And then suddenly, things went right, things went very, very right.
After falling behind six runs to Cy Young winner David Price and Tampa Bay, the...

The scoreboard must be a depressing place for the Arizona Diamondbacks these days. Every time they look at it, it must seem the Dodgers are winning.
Because clearly, that is all the Dodgers do these days. Win against the weak and strong, against the...
