DENVER -- On his first day with the Dodgers, Michael Young said his childhood idol was his new manager, Don Mattingly.

Among other things, the Dodgers can win awkwardly. They can win on those exceedingly rare occasions when ace pitcher Clayton Kershaw is something less than brilliant, can win when closer Kenley Jansen gives up a home run and can win when they almost...

DENVER — With the Dodgers holding a 12 1/2-game lead in the National League West, Manager Don Mattingly will take the next two days to offer his players some extra rest.

Hello Juan Uribe. Goodbye losing streak.
There are gentle ways to turn around a bad skid and then there are nights like Monday, when led by Uribe’s three solo homers, the Dodgers went the sledge-hammer routine, pounding the Diamondbacks behind a...

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

The game looked like it wanted to go in dozen different directions all at once, squirming and squealing all over the place, unable to lay claim to anything but a wild ride.
And then the Dodgers suddenly seem to say enough, that they had other things...

It was taunt and tense. It was a sweaty, nervous little game.
And ultimately, one extremely frustrating game for the Los Angeles Dodgers.
The Dodgers lost the opener of the National League Championship Series, 3-2 in 13 innings, on Friday night when...
