Dodgers @ Pirates June 25, 2016: The Nick Tepesch Era Is Over

Last night’s game was one of the ugliest you’ll see played in the major leagues. The Dodgers will try to look past it today behind Kenta Maeda against southpaw Jeff Locke.

Dodgers to promote Nick Tepesch to start Friday

Texas Rangers Pitcher Nick Tepesch Threw 400 MPH Against Oakland? That's What the Radar Gunn Said...

Sometimes under extreme circumstances people are capable of doing things that people refer to as 'super-human.' There are all sorts of stories about mom's going beast mode and lifting trucks off of their babies, but that is truly an extreme circumstance. Pitching for a team that has been out of playoff contention for sometime does not qualify as such.So how in the world did a so...

Tepesch sends Rangers on road with positive vibe

ARLINGTON, Texas - At least for a day the beleaguered Texas Rangers were able to put the jigsaw pieces together in what's been a puzzling season. Texas starter Nick Tepesch did his part and the offense was there to back him up as the Rangers salvaged the final game of a 2-3 homestand with a 4-3 victory over Seattle.
