Found May 02, 2013 on Fox Sports West:
LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Troy Tulowitzki and Carlos Gonzalez each hit two-run doubles, and center fielder Dexter Fowler robbed Adrian Gonzalez of what would have been his second home run of the game, leading the Colorado Rockies to a 7-3 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Wednesday night. Reliever Josh Outman (1-0) got credit for the victory in the rubber game of the series, allowing one hit over two scoreless innings. Josh Beckett (0-4) gave up five runs and five hits in four innings before he was lifted for a pinch-hitter. It's the first time in Beckett's 13-year career that the three-time All-Star and 2003 World Series MVP has gone winless in his first six starts.

Sandy Koufax's scouting report surfaces

Many argue Sandy Koufax as one of the greatest pitchers of all-time. He dominated the National League as a member of the Brooklyn Dodgers. He baffled batters, especially the final five seasons of his career where his WHIP was below 1.00 a game. That’s insane for a starter, in any era. Oh, his final two seasons, he pitched in 335.2 and 320 innings. He didn’t show any signs of...

The Dodger Family Hurts

After a stellar outing on Sunday, Clayton Kershaw immediately left his shut out game and was placed on the bereavement list by the Dodgers. It was not immediately known why, but reports stated he would be ready for his Friday start against the Giants in San Francisco. Today we learned that Clayton Kershaw’s father passed away. It was later reported that Ned Colletti, the General...

Tommy Lasorda not impressed by PSY (Video)

Your browser does not support iframes. Korean pop star PSY was at Dodger Stadium Tuesday night, and it was fitting that fellow Korean Ryu Hyun-jin was on the mound pitching for the Los Angeles Dodgers. PSY was presented to the crowd before the bottom of the fourth inning, and briefly danced to a segment of his new single "Gentleman". PSY happened to be dancing right...

Jarret Martin dominates, but loses in best outing of Dodgers' career

Jarret Martin had one of the best performances of his Dodger career on Wednesday night, but it wasn't enough to propel the Rancho Cucamonga Quakes to victory. Martin's line was rather impressive: 6 IP, 2 H, 2 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 8 K. The Stockton Ports scored their only two runs of the night in the first inning, aided by a Darnell Sweeney error -- his 13th in 24 games. Addison...

Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw to start Friday

The Los Angeles Dodgers recently placed left-handed starting pitcher Clayton Kershaw on the bereavement list following the death of his father. While Kershaw has been apart from the club as a result of the loss, LA didn't expect him to miss Friday's regularly scheduled start when they made the transaction. Kershaw indeed will not miss Friday's matchup against the San...

Korean star PSY on hand for Ryu's career night

LOS ANGELES Hyun-Jin Ryu struck out Colorado Rockies first baseman Jordan Pacheco looking and calmly walked off the field back to the Dodgers dugout to end the top of the fourth inning on Tuesday night at Dodger Stadium. All of a sudden South Korean megastar PSY of Gangnam Style fame entered Dodger Stadium...on the Jumbotron that is, to a smattering of cheers. Those cheers turned...

Dodgers’ Gordon begins fielding balls at second

Dee Gordon has begun taking ground balls at second base suggesting his future with the Dodgers will not be at shortstop. The Dodgers sent the 25-year-old Gordon to Triple-A Albuquerque to start the season. Gordon has compiled a .302/.368/.417 line during his minor league stay and has stolen 12 bases. The Dodges have Hanley Ramirez and Mark Ellis at shortstop and second base. Gordon...

Source: Dodgers sign LHP Aaron Laffey

A source has told CLNSRadio.com that the Los Angeles Dodgers have signed LHP Aaron Laffey to a minor league deal. Laffey, 28, will report to AAA Albuquerque and will join the rotation there.

He was designated...

The fragility of the Rockies and Troy Tulowitzki

The Colorado Rockies are one of the biggest surprises of the early MLB season, finding themselves at 16-10 and all alone atop the NL West. But in recent days they have gotten a stark reminder of their mortality when they lost star shortstop Troy Tulowitzki to a strained left rotator cuff. Though Tulowitzki proved to be of the day-to-day, it has to be a concern for the Rockies...

Gonzalezs short-term memory has served him well

MILWAUKEE -- The game of baseball offers quite a few moments that are bizarre and sometimes just plain unlucky. Michael Gonzalez's relief pitching debut with the Brewers on April 3 certainly qualified as both. After Gonzalez walked the leadoff hitter, a perfect bunt single followed putting two on with nobody out. Rockies left fielder Carlos Gonzalez followed with a broken bat...

Fantasy: April under a microscope

On the way to another excellent season, Carlos Gonzalez hit .222 last August. You may not have noticed because it was hidden by his earlier numbers. Josh Hamilton hit .204 this April. You definitely noticed. Both months hurt you, the difference is perception. Hitters slump all the time. It's just much more apparent when that ugly early-season total is staring you in the face...
