Los Angeles Dodgers starter Zack Greinke has built some great momentum heading into the All-Star break. A winner in his last five starts, Greinke has not given up a run in three of those games and for the second straight start only allowed two hits as the Dodgers defeated the Colorado Rockies 1-0.
In the Dodgers 10th sellout of the season Greinke lowered his ERA to 3.49 with 80 of his 110 pitches going for strikes in a complete game shutout. This was the 13th complete game of his career and the 6th by a Dodgers starter in 2013.
The only run of the game came on a Hanley Ramirez groundout in the first inning that scored Skip Schumaker. The bullpen’s were not used for either team as both starting pitchers were good. Rockies starter Tyler Chatwood was the tough luck loser tossing eight innings only giving up four hits.
With the win the Dodgers have now won 17 of the last 21 games which makes them the hottest team in Major League Baseball by far. The All-Star break may come at a bad team...

With the Major League Baseball season more than half over, it's time to unveil my midseason Top 25 Dodgers' prospect list.
There are some new faces, some young faces (Julio Urias, right) and some players who have broken out. There are also some who have fallen from their preseason rank. There wasn't as much an infusion of talent as there was in last year's midseason...
Zack Greinke retired his first 13 batters before finishing with a two-hitter for a win in his fifth straight start and leading the Los Angeles Dodgers over the Colorado Rockies 1-0 on Saturday.
The Dodgers won for the 14th time in 17 games, despite the absence of rookie outfielder Yasiel Puig, who missed his first game since his promotion on June 3 because of a sore left hip. He...
Team: Los Angeles Dodgers
Record: 47-47 (2.5 GB)
Biggest Surprise of First Half: For the Dodgers it would have to be Juan Uribe. Uribe has had a terrible first 2 years in Dodger blue but seems to have found his stroke. His first half slash line looks like this, .271/.344/.415. He seems to be healthy and also seems to be seeing the ball well. He is in the walk year of the contract...
Last night, Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig
attempted to play through the hip injury that caused him to exit Thursday’s contest.
He was able to return to the Dodgers’ starting lineup, but he didn’t make it
past the fourth inning. Puig was removed after four frames, as he told
reporters – including Austin Laymance of MLB.com – that his hip was bothering
The Los Angeles Dodgers have been on some kind of roll over the past 20 games with a record of 16-4. The team is looking to get healthy and make a run into the postseason. Manager Don Mattingly answered questions about injuries and the team today before Photo Day at Dodgers Stadium.
“Just a little over a week ago we were talking about having four outfielders and now we only have...
The Yasiel Puig effect and the Dodgers recent hot streak are having an effect on Los Angeles' local ratings. Tuesday's Dodgers-Diamondbacks tilt, a game featuring the top two teams in the NL West, drew a 5.2 rating and 470,000 viewers on KCAL in Los Angeles, the highest on LA network since 2007. The game on Tuesday was also the Dodgers debut of new starting pitcher Ricky...
Every season, a new member of the MLB fraternity welcomes himself to the big leagues and unexpectedly steals our heart. This guy remains a favorite for the duration of his career and someone we follow into the future while trying to remember his humble beginnings by doing a post about it on this blog.
This year, that guy is Yasiel Puig. Here are the top five moments (in our opinion...
Through the first couple months of the season the Los Angeles Dodgers bullpen was a mess. The group as a whole had an ERA of 4.65 which is obviously not helpful when you’re in a good deal of games that are close. It’s hard enough to keep a consistency to a bullpen as it is but when the team’s closer isn’t pitching well for an extended period of time it has a ripple effect...
Maybe what Yasiel Puig needs right now is a day off. He could
probably use it. His aching left hip â the one he
injured running into a wall July 3 at Colorado â
is still not fully recovered. A little rest probably wouldn't hurt.
Some people believe that the Philadelphia Phillies will be deadline sellers and that Chase Utley is L.A.-bound. (Image source: The Sports Quotient at http://thesuicidesqueeze.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/Chase-Utley.jpg)
The Dodgers are planning to make a few decisions before the trade deadline that could potentially strengthen the team’s position in the National League West...
