    Dodgers show no signs of letting up in 4-2 victory over Mets

    After stormy days, skies are blue again for Dodgers and Ned Colletti
    The chair on which General Manager Ned Colletti sits, night after night, at Dodgers home games, once came with a very high temperature. Now, the hot seat is more like a throne. Colletti has lasted, persevered. He has gone over Niagara Falls in a...
  • It's hard to choose an MVP for the Dodgers, in a good way

    Outfielder Yasiel Puig has captured Dodgers fans' imagination with his hitting and flair for the dramatic. First baseman Adrian Gonzalez has captured the No. 3 spot in the batting order by being a model of excellence with 17 home runs and 81 runs batted...
  • Zack Greinke lives, and dives, dangerously in Dodgers' win over Padres

    Zack Greinke lives, and dives, dangerously in Dodgers' win over Padres
    Nothing seems to go wrong for the Dodgers these days. They play. They win. They count down toward the National League West championship. But, for one scary moment Sunday, they had visions of disaster. Not only had Zack Greinke decided the time was...

    Dodgers take advantage of big lead in NL West by resting players

  • Rest assured, the Dodgers can mix it up

    DENVER — Don Mattingly won't say it, but the Dodgers are already starting to look ahead to October. The proof was in the lineup the manager fielded in the Dodgers' 7-4 victory over the Colorado Rockies on Tuesday at Coors Field. Yasiel Puig, who...

    Reds' speed leaves Dodgers with 4-3 loss and a 3-game losing streak
    And now presenting those loooosing Dodgers. That’s right, the Dodgers -- destroyers of worlds -- are in a funk. They fell, 4-3, in 10 innings to the Cincinnati Reds, leaving them with their first three-game losing streak in three months. Three...
