  • Dodgers lose, 3-2, to Braves, may have lost Hyun-Jin Ryu to injury

    Finally losing to the Atlanta Braves, that was probably inevitable. Losing left-hander Hyun-Jin Ryu to injury, that's not any part of the Dodgers’ future plan. The Dodgers had gone 5-0 against the Braves this season, but fell, 3-2, on Wednesday at...

  • Solution to Dodgers' outfielder surplus discovered: Use one as a DH

  • Dodgers' Dan Haren gives a baffling effort in 2-1 win over Angels

    The Angels knew Dan Haren well from the 21/2 years he spent in Anaheim from 2010 to 2012, and the right-hander they remember did not jibe with the one who went 0-5 with a 10.03 earned-run average in his previous five starts and was on the verge of being...
