Los Angeles Dodgers
San Diego Padres
The San Diego Padres have inexplicably had Clayton Kershaw's number all season.
On Saturday night, however, the former Cy Young Award winner struck back in a big way.
Kershaw struck out 10 in seven dominant innings, Yasiel Puig and A.J. Ellis hit two-run homers and the NL West champion Los Angeles Dodgers defeated the Padres 4-0 Saturday night.
Kershaw held San Diego in check on three hits after losing to the Padres in three other starts this season.
Kershaw (15-9) lowered his major league-leading ERA to 1.88. He leads the NL with 224 strikeouts.
''I think the difference was being able to get those key hits,'' Padres rookie Jedd Gyorko said. ''You can't get him all the time and he kind of got us. I'd say our at-bats were just as good as any other game against him. We just couldn't push through.''
San Diego had runners on first and second in the first with one out and men on second and third with no outs in the third and couldn...
BEST OF MAXIM
After a tough few outings, Clayton Kershaw is backing to pitching at Cy Young form.
Kershaw rebounded with seven dominant innings and got two-run homers from Yasiel Puig and A.J. Ellis as the NL West champion Los Angeles Dodgers defeated the San Diego Padres, 4-0, on Saturday night.

I think that is the Raiders logo on the top of his head as well. I wonder if this guy is married or has a girlfriend. Vegas should have a prop bet on this. “Men who have tattoos of sports teams or athletes on their bodies have a significant other.” Yes +10000000000 No -100000000000 Are you ready to see the @Dodgers in the postseason? This guy is probably more ready: http://t...
Thursday night the Los Angeles Dodgers did something that looked impossible 70+ games in to the season--they won the NL West division! As could be expected from such an accomplishment, the players were a little excited as they celebrated on the field in Arizona--by jumping into the pool at Chase Field.
Little did they know that it would draw a public condemnation by Senator John...
Current Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Brian Wilson knows a thing or two about making a fool out of himself, and he did just that in response to a tweet from US Senator John McCain about the Dodgers' pool party in Arizona on Thursday. after clinching the division title.
Senator McComplain knows a thing or two about coming in second and watching someone take a plunge in the...
The Los Angeles Dodgers' NL West-clinching celebration on Thursday in the Arizona Diamondbacks' swimming pool at Chase Field seems to have sent Sen. John McCain off the deep end.
No-class act by a bunch of overpaid, immature, arrogant, spoiled brats! "The #Dodgers are idiots" http://t.co/KfZZliBFBV

Arizona senator John McCain let the Dodgers know how he felt about them jumping into the Diamondbacks pool via Twitter. No-class act by a bunch of overpaid, immature, arrogant, spoiled brats!

I completed my second trade with Wes from Jaybarkerfan's Junk. Wes pulled a card I just had to have, and after a few e-mails back and forth he was willing to deal it for a number of items that would soon head his way.Ric Flair WOOOOOOO! From 2013 Bowman Chrome, this Yasiel Puig Cream of the Crop Mini Refractor would have been much too expensive via eBay. I never really expected...
The mound felt familiar to Edinson Volquez even if the visitor's dugout didn't.
The Los Angeles Dodgers right-hander started his first game against the San Diego Padres since they released him on Aug. 25.
Volquez pitched well. The Padres' Robbie Erlin pitched better.
Erlin allowed four hits over 7 2-3 innings and fellow rookie Jedd Gyorko hit his 20th homer to lead...
The other night, after the Los Angeles Dodgers beat the Arizona Diamondbacks and clinched the National League West title, they jumped into the Chase Field swimming pool in right field.
A pretty cool sight, right?
Apparently, the act upset Diamondbacks fans and, somehow, mocked the team's "playoff tradition". Say what? Tradition?!? Oh, that...
The Los Angeles Dodgers have moved on. Having dispatched the Diamondbacks, their last obstacle to the NL West title, they can now turn their attention toward getting ready for baseball's postseason.
For the Diamondbacks and their fans, there are no such diversions. And so the resentment over the Dodgers going out of their way to take their pennant-clinching celebration into...
The Dodgers have a plethora of outfielders. They have Matt Kemp, Yasiel Puig, Andre Ethier and Carl Crawford. They have one problem. They can't play all of them at the same time. Because of that, don't be surprised if they look into trading one of those four to upgrade other positions.
Rival executives expect the Dodgers to move "at least" one of their elite...
It’s that time of the year again-time to make our predictions for who will be bringing home silver this offseason. We’ll be looking at my predictions for the MVP, Cy Young, and Rookie of the Year. Yesterday, I predicted who will be winning these awards in the American League which can be found here. Today, I’ll be predicting who will win these awards in the National League...
