Times Staff WriterThe Dodgers might remember this evening forever. They would not let go of the National League West lead, and their fans would not let go of them. After a ninth inning that ranged beyond improbable and near impossible, in which the Dodgers tied the...
Tribune staff reporterThe offensive outburst brought back pleasant memories for Jim Thome. "Whenever you can score the runs like we have, it reminds me a lot of those mid-1990s teams we had there," Thome said Wednesday night of the White Sox's Cleveland-like performance in...
Tribune staff reporterThe Los Angeles Dodgers are putting the ex-Cub factor to the test this season, employing no fewer than six former Cubs in their pursuit of a World Series title. There's a 25-year-old theory that no team can win a World Series with three or more ex-Cubs...
