Coronavirus testing kiosk at Union Station foretells future of pandemic recovery

Andrew Raposa stood in line outside Union Station in Los Angeles on a recent Wednesday with a handful of friends waiting to be tested for the coronavirus at a unique walk-up kiosk. Unlike most of the testing sites throughout the county, this one operated by Curative in partnership with the city and county, did not require a car and it was located in a heavily trafficked area. That’s one of the reasons Raposa said he chose the spot as he lives in downtown L.A. and doesn’t own a car. People ta...

Dodgers support Dustin May with five home runs against Rockies

LOS ANGELES – Dustin May turns 23 on Sunday. He made eight starts as a 22-year-old and did not allow more than two earned runs in any of them. The last Dodger pitcher so young with a streak so long was Fernando Valenzuela in 1981. May’s consistency was not rewarded with a victory Friday; the Dodgers needed three home runs in the eighth inning to come from behind to beat the Colorado Rockies 10-6. It had already been rewarded with something bigger: a spot in the starting rotation for the duration...

Clayton Kershaw dazzles as he passes milestone in Dodgers’ victory against Diamondbacks

LOS ANGELES – Each time Clayton Kershaw takes the mound at Dodger Stadium, the public-address system cranks up the same lyrics: “Toni-i-ight/We are young.” Each time, it sounds a little less like wishful thinking.

He didn’t allow a run and lowered his earned-run average to 1.50, the third-lowest in baseball. It was the fourth consecutive start in which Kershaw has allowed one run o...
