Los Angeles Dodgers shortstop Hanley Ramirez had to leave Sunday's game in the seventh inning with a shoulder injury after flipping into the stands at Wrigley Field. Ramirez chased a popup by Chicago Cubs batter David DeJesus as the wind took it into foul territory towards the third base stands. Ramirez caught it just a few feet from the stands, but his momentum carried him into a short brick wall in front of the fans. Ramirez held onto the baseball after the collision sent him flipping into the stands, but jammed his right shoulder while using his right arm to brace himself from falling head first. Ramirez will receive an MRI on Monday to determine the severity of the shoulder injury. Video via MLB. H/T AP via ESPN. Visit us at and follow us on Twitter @HoldoutSports.

Dioner Navarro breaks Hanley Ramirez's bat

Funny stuff: Hanley Ramirez moans about a pitch he had no right ******** about. He adjusted his cup while discussing the pitch, eventually dropping his bat between the legs of Dioner Navarro...who promptly picked up said bat and snapped it before handing it to the bat boy. Mission accomplished. [BWO FTW] Your browser does not support iframes. **Follow us on Twitter, View via Our...

Yasiel Puig Smooches Adrian Gonzalez During Dodgers Game

There is plenty of love to go around for the Dodgers right now.  Although Yasiel Puig receives a good chunk of the love thrown LA’s direction, he doesn’t hoard it all for himself. He shares it with his pals. This beautiful moment was caught on tape during the Dodgers tilt with the St. Louis Cardinals tonight at Busch Stadium after Puig almost lapped A-Gon on the base paths....

Los Angeles Dodgers get sweep but at what cost?

The Los Angeles Dodgers completed a four game sweep of the Chicago Cubs with a 1-0 victory on Sunday afternoon. The Dodgers are now 31-7 in their last 38 games, have a franchise-best streak of 14 consecutive road wins, and have increased their lead in the NL West division to 5 1/2 games over the Arizona Diamondbacks. Heading into the series with the Cubs, the Dodgers had made the...

Skip Schumaker, now a Dodger, will always be a big shot here

ST. LOUIS -- When Skip Schumaker left Busch Stadium last October, he figured his time with the Cardinals was up. "And that was OK," Schumaker said from the visiting team's clubhouse Monday afternoon. "I understood the direction they were going. There were never any hard feelings. As much as I loved it here, I understood. Your time runs out eventually." ...

Yasiel Puig kisses Adrian Gonzalez on head, gives peace sign, tells ESPN to keep talking

So ESPN and everybody were hyping up this discord between Yasiel Puig and Adrian Gonzalez during the game tonight, mainly because Puig was unjustifiably mouthing off to Gonzalez about not scoring from first on his double (I mean, really? He could have hit the ball to the moon.). So in the top of the ninth, after somehow word had trickled down to them, Puig and A-Gon hammed it up...

Puig makes incredible catch off wall at Wrigley Field (VIDEO)

Has anyone made so many ridiculous catches in such a short span of time as Yasiel Puig? It seems like the Los Angeles Dodgers rookie right fielder tacks one or two grabs onto his highlight reel every game. Even when the catch doesn't count as an out, Puig makes it interesting — like this one at Wrigley Field. After initially ruling this catch an out, the umpires conferred...

Dodgers give Greinke, Puig day off

Dodgers manager Don Mattingly pushed Zack Greinke's scheduled start back to Monday, saying he wanted to keep his starting pitchers fresh and rested. Mattingly, who hinted on Saturday that he might make this move, also kept Yasiel Puig out of the lineup because the outfielder has a hurt left thumb. Stephen Fife will start Sunday against the Cubs. The move will also give Dodgers...

Cards welcome Dodgers -- two road wins shy of NL record -- to Busch

ST. LOUIS -- If you don't recognize the Dodgers who show up at Busch Stadium this week, it's understandable. They hardly resemble the team that lost two of three to the Cardinals at Dodger Stadium in late May. Those Dodgers were mired in last place and their manager, Don Mattingly, was dealing with questions about his job security. Yasiel Puig still was in the minors,...
