Dodgers’ four-run seventh reclaims lead, secures win over Diamondbacks

PHOENIX — The Dodgers might have won the trade deadline. But they took their time winning anything else. Against the Arizona Diamondbacks Saturday, the Dodgers scored three times in the second inning then left their lead in the car and forgot to crack a window. It melted away and the Dodgers had to rehydrate it with a four-run seventh inning that secured an 8-3 win over the Diamondbacks. The win was their first since Wednesday in San Francisco. The first-place Giants also won Saturday, keeping t...

Clayton Kershaw’s return to Dodgers unclear due to ‘residual soreness’

PHOENIX — After Clayton Kershaw threw a three-inning simulated game in San Francisco on Tuesday, Dodgers manager Dave Roberts laid out a tentative plan for how and when the left-hander would return to the Dodgers’ starting rotation. Kershaw would throw another simulated game, stretching out to four innings and 50 to 60 pitches, on Sunday in Arizona, Roberts said. Then he would likely rejoin the Dodgers to start next Saturday against the Angels at Dodger Stadium. That plan has gotten a little fuz...

Angels blank A’s behind strong start from Jaime Barría

ANAHEIM ― The Angels are temporarily wearing the uniforms the team used from 1973 to 1992, with a sans serif script across the front, a pin stripe down the pant leg, and a red silhouette of the state of California on the left sleeve. Saturday, the Angels won a game from an earlier era. Starting pitcher Jaime Barría scattered four hits across 6 ⅔ scoreless innings in a 1-0 win over the Oakland A’s before an announced crowd of 23,207 at Angel Stadium. The two teams combined for 11 hits and no home...

Still an Angel, Alex Cobb is open to a contract extension

ANAHEIM ― Alex Cobb was still an Angel after Major League Baseball’s trade deadline passed Friday. He’d like to be an Angel a while longer. The right-handed pitcher, on the injured list with a mysterious wrist ailment, said Saturday that he is open to signing a contract extension. Cobb will become a free agent at the end of the season. “I knew this is somewhere I wanted to be months ago ― really from the moment I got traded over here,” said Cobb, whom the Angels acquired in February from the Ori...

Dodgers’ extra-inning frustrations continue in Arizona

PHOENIX — Back on April 16 at Petco Park, the Dodgers scored five times in the 12th inning to beat the San Diego Padres. If they had known then that it might be their only extra-inning win of the season, maybe they would have savored it a little more. The Dodgers spotted the Arizona Diamondbacks a three-run headstart, ran them down in eight innings but lost in the 10th, 6-5, on Friday night. The Dodgers have ventured into the dark alley of extra innings 12 times this season and came out at the o...

Dodgers’ Andrew Friedman took ‘roller-coaster ride’ to making blockbuster trade

PHOENIX — The days blur together for Andrew Friedman as the trade deadline nears. But Wednesday afternoon, he thought “there was a real chance” the Dodgers were going to be able to pull off the biggest move of baseball’s mid-season swap meet and acquire both three-time Cy Young Award winner Max Scherzer and five-tool shortstop Trea Turner from the Washington Nationals. By Wednesday night “we felt like there wasn’t much of a chance,” Friedman said Friday. “Then Thursday morning that kind of chang...

Corey Seager returns to Dodgers after ‘very frustrating’ recovery

PHOENIX — The goal line kept moving for Corey Seager. An original – overly optimistic – prognosis had the shortstop returning to the Dodgers’ lineup four to six weeks after suffering a fracture in his right hand when he was hit by a pitch on May 15. That changed to a more realistic six to eight weeks. He seemed on track to return in early July … then right after the All-Star break … then during last week’s series at home against the NL West-leading Giants. But none of that proved to be true. Sea...

Shohei Ohtani’s next start pushed back because of sore thumb

ANAHEIM — Shohei Ohtani is going to need another day or two before his next start after a freak accident. Ohtani was sitting in the Angels’ dugout on Wednesday when a foul ball came shooting into the dugout. Ohtani put his hands over his head to protect himself, and the ball clipped his right thumb, Manager Joe Maddon said. “It’s sore,” Maddon said on Friday. “There’s nothing wrong with it. It’s just sore. It may require an extra day.” After Maddon explained what happened, the Angels did scratch...

Alexander: Dodgers’ deadline deal fuels a frenzied Friday

The world according to Jim: • There are two ways to look at baseball’s most frenetic trade deadline in years from a Los Angeles standpoint. The Dodgers might have made themselves unquestioned World Series favorites – that’s the way the oddsmakers leaned following the Max Scherzer/Trea Turner deal, anyway – and at least did all of L.A. a mental health service by overshadowing that recent 2-5 stretch against the Giants. But it also helped energize their current/potential foes. The Giants’ trade fo...

friends and family reunion road trip: day seven: dodgers vs giants!

Yesterday, family and friends from different areas of my life were brought together, through our plans -- and through baseball! We dropped the dogs at the daycare place in the late morning, then headed back to the BART station. (I noticed that regular parking is $3.00, which means the reservation service is double the normal cost.) We took the BART to the Muni Metro. From the train I saw many homes in Oakland with memorial murals for victims of police shootings, painted in ways that would be vis...

Crawford Back With 2-Run Double As Giants Blank Dodgers 5-0

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Brandon Crawford doubled home two runs in his first at-bat after coming back from a left oblique strain and the majors-leading San Francisco Giants beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 5-0 Thursday in the rubber match of a three-game series. Wilmer Flores, Austin Slater and LaMonte Wade Jr. also drove in runs for San Francisco, which extended its NL West lead over Los Angeles to three games. The Dodgers were shut out for just the third time this season. “We have so much respect for ...

Alexander: Dodgers’ dreary day got a lot better later

Lakers general manager Rob Pelinka left a tough act to follow Thursday, negotiating a trade that brought Russell Westbrook home to Los Angeles in the hours before the NBA draft. Andrew Friedman may have topped it hours later. As the Dodgers were being shut out, 5-0, on four hits by the NL West-leading Giants on Thursday afternoon in San Francisco – another example of the feast-or-famine nature that has characterized their season – they acquired left-handed starting pitcher Danny Duffy from Kansa...

Dodgers set to acquire Max Scherzer, Trea Turner from Nationals

SAN FRANCISCO — Go big. Or risk going home.

Hearing on restraining order against Dodgers’ Trevor Bauer postponed again

A hearing on a restraining order filed against Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Trevor Bauer by a San Diego woman who said the athlete chocked and punched her at his Pasadena home earlier this year has been postponed again, officials said. Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Dianna Gould-Saltman granted a continuance for the hearing on Wednesday after Bauer and his attorney, Shawn Holley, asked for more time to prepare, adding that they had not yet received medical records from the woman who soug...
