Before starting a three-game series in Denver on Friday, the Dodgers, as expected, made a roster move.
Just not the one anticipated, unless your memory goes back to spring training. The Dodgers called up a minor leaguer, only not one named Yasiel Puig...

This time the Dodgers are not going to dance around with Matt Kemp and his hamstring issue. This time they wasted no time in placing him on the disabled list.
Kemp strained his right hamstring Wednesday night chasing down a Mike Trout hit in the gap and...

I think it is fair to say that Mark Reynolds is on a bit of a tear.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter expressed faith in slumping first baseman Mark Reynolds, saying he will continue to put Reynolds in the lineup despite his struggles.

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...

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.
