Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw limits Giants to two hits in 5-0 shutout

KEY MOMENT: The Dodgers doubled their lead from 2-0 to 4-0 in a three-hit sixth inning that included a throwing error by Giants second baseman Dan Uggla. Yasiel Puig led off the inning with an infield hit and advanced to third on a double by Adrian Gonzalez. Puig scored on a throwing error by Uggla, who fielded a grounder by Carl Crawford. Gonzalez was thrown out at the plate on...

Dodgers 5, Pirates 2: Finally, Edinson Volquez Is Good For Something

When your offense is struggling what do you do? Well, you just find one of the worst pitchers in baseball, of course. Old friend (I guess) Edinson Volquez certainly fits the bill, and he provided just what the Dodgers needed: terrible, terrible pitching that’s conducive to offense. Volquez allowed 13 baserunners (10 hits) in 5.2 innings, allowing five earned runs, and was more...

Dodgers sign Mexican 1B Eric Meza, Venezuelan C Keivert Ruiz

The Dodgers may have found the next Adrian Gonzalez. Well, not really. But they did sign Mexican first baseman in Eric Meza. They did so late on July 2, which is why he wasn’t in the first post about July 2 prospects. Meza’s bonus amount is unknown. Odds are, it wasn’t a significant amount of money and shouldn’t really have an impact on the Dodgers signing pool. Meza is...

Dodgers 4, Cardinals 3: Costliest Win Of The Year

…aaaaaand exhale, because wow, did a lot just happen there. Clayton Kershaw was fine, but hardly up to his usual standards. I know that sounds weird when you consider that he struck out eight, walked one, and allowed three earned runs in seven innings. For most any other pitcher in baseball, that’s a pretty great night. For Kershaw, it was one of his lesser outings of the year...

Trading Crawford, Beckett and Gonzalez: The Gift That Keeps On Giving

Thank you, Rubby At the time it happened, the trade of Carl Crawford, Josh Beckett and Adrian Gonzalez cleared some overpaid, non-performing detritus from our coffers. And, for the most part, seeing those smug mugs sent packing was reward enough. But it’s good to see that trade still paying dividends for us, a year after winning the World Series.

Luck, Lonnie and the ever-elusive 7-2-4 Triple Play

The Cleveland Indians took to Dodger Stadium hoping to avenge their history-making back-to-back nights of amassing just one hit—and did they ever. While starting pitcher Justin Masterson was yanked after three-plus (wildly lucky) innings and the Dodgers had runners on base throughout the night, the Tribe bats logged 13 hits on the night, finishing with a score of 10-3.

Indians’ Crazy Triple Play Upheld After Two Video Challenges (Video)

The addition of Major League Baseball’s new replay system has been a contentious issue for some baseball purists. On Tuesday, however, that system helped the Cleveland Indians pull off one of the most impressive triple plays in recent memory against the Los Angeles Dodgers.
