Homer Happy: Dodgers Pummel Samardzija, Giants 7-2

LOS ANGELES (AP) – Mookie Betts homered for the first time at Dodger Stadium, and Max Muncy, Will Smith and Edwin Ríos went deep to help Los Angeles defeat the San Francisco Giants 7-2 on Friday night. The Dodgers have won three in a row and eight of 10. Betts was back in the lineup for the first time since injuring his left middle finger last Sunday in Phoenix. He didn’t waste any time, doubling in his first at-bat. He homered into the left-field pavilion in the third, tying the game 1-all. Two...

Dodgers’ hot-hitting Corey Seager leaves game with back injury

LOS ANGELES – Corey Seager was removed from the Dodgers’ game against the Giants in the top of the third inning Friday with low back discomfort. Austin Slater led off the inning with a ground ball to Dodgers second baseman Chris Taylor. Seager wasn’t involved in the play, but he was visited by assistant athletic director Yosuke Nakajima a moment later. The visit was brief. Taylor replaced Seager at shortstop and Kiké Hernandez took over at second base. Manager Dave Roberts told SportsNet LA duri...

Corey Seager’s aggressive approach is paying off for Dodgers

LOS ANGELES – On the same day Mookie Betts returned to the Dodgers’ starting lineup, their most dangerous hitter kept plugging away in the No. 5 spot in the batting order. Corey Seager entered a three-game series against the Giants leading the team in batting average (.347), on-base percentage (.396), runs (10) and tied for the club lead in home runs (3). He managed all this while striking out just five times in 53 at-bats – a lower rate than all but 10 qualified hitters through Thursday. Seager...

Murphy’s Pinch-Hit HR Lifts Rockies Over Giants 6-4

DENVER (AP) – Daniel Murphy hit a two-run, pinch-homer during a five-run seventh inning to lead the Colorado Rockies over the San Francisco Giants 6-4 on Thursday. Trevor Story and Charlie Blackmon also homered for the Rockies to spoil Tyler Anderson’s return to Coors Field. Anderson was Colorado’s opening day starter in 2019, but knee surgery in June ended his season after going 0-3 with an 11.76 ERA. The Giants picked him up off waivers in October, and Thursday was his second start in four gam...

Belt’s 3-Run Homer Lifts Giants Over Rockies 4-3

DENVER (AP) — Brandon Belt extended his success against Colorado starter Jon Gray with a three-run homer and a double to lead the San Francisco Giants past the Rockies 4-3 on Wednesday night. Belt’s two hits raised his career average against Gray to .417 (10 for 24) and helped Logan Webb (1-0) get his first win in his fourth start of the season. Nolan Arenado homered for the third straight game for the Rockies, who had their four-game winning streak snapped. Colorado had scored five or more runs...

Dodgers defend decision-making with top prospect Gavin Lux

The reigning Minor League Player of the Year, as determined by Baseball America, the Dodgers’ Gavin Lux came into spring training seen by many as a strong candidate to not only be the their primary second baseman, but also to make a run at the franchise’s 19th National League Rookie of the Year award. As camp progressed, however, it became apparent the Dodgers did not see Lux as a lock to open the season on their roster, and that raised questions about service-time manipulation — a frequent mane...

Revisiting Saskatoon Blades Trades: Schenn & Ferland from Wheat Kings

It was a sequence of events that certainly charted a course for both teams involved, it just didn’t set each club on the path many expected. The Saskatoon Blades and Brandon Wheat Kings were frequent trade partners in the first half of the 2010s, headlined by blockbuster swaps in 2011 and 2013 that sent career Wheat Kings’ stars and future NHLers Brayden Schenn and Micheal Ferland to Saskatoon in hopes of delivering an ever-elusive Memorial Cup to the Bridge City. Though the marque...

Márquez Strikes Out 9, Rockies Beat Giants 5-2

DENVER (AP) – Germán Márquez struck out nine in efficiently throwing into the eighth inning and benefited from an overturned home-run call as the rolling Colorado Rockies beat the San Francisco Giants 5-2 on Tuesday night. The Rockies moved to 8-2 for the second time in franchise history, joining a 2011 team that finished 73-89. Trailing 3-0 in the fifth, the Giants thought they tied it on a three-run homer by Steven Duggar that hit off the top of the wall. A crew chief review overturned the cal...

Rockies Beat Giants 7-6, Match Best Start In Team History

DENVER (AP) — The NL West-leading Colorado Rockies are off to a sizzling start with their top slugger in a slump. Now even he’s starting to heat up. Nolan Arenado hit his first homer of the season to ignite a five-run sixth inning and the Rockies matched their best start in franchise history by holding on for a 7-6 win over the San Francisco Giants on Monday night. The Rockies are 7-2 for the fifth time in team history. They also had that mark in 1995, ’97, 2011 and ’15. “Our group is mentally i...

Dodgers hit four home runs to pound Diamondbacks

Whatever challenges traveling in the midst of a pandemic might present off the field, the Dodgers are having no problems with it on the field. Edwin Rios, Matt Beaty, A.J. Pollock and Chris Taylor each hit home runs as the Dodgers beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 11-2 Saturday. The win was the Dodgers’ fourth in the first five games of this season-long nine-game trip. After scoring 17 runs and hitting .338 as a team in the first two games of the season, the Dodgers’ offense slowed down, batting .24...

Pinch-hitter Greg Garcia added a key two-run single against Tyler Rogers (1-2) in the big six-run 10th. “It’s definitely differernt.

Dodgers were ‘shocked’ by Joe Kelly’s eight-game suspension

Joe Kelly’s eight-game suspension landed with a thud in the Dodgers’ clubhouse on Wednesday. “I think we were all pretty shocked,” outfielder AJ Pollock said. “It seemed very, very harsh.” “I think that this is an unprecedented number for a pitcher,” Manager Dave Roberts said. Roberts wasn’t alive in August 1965 when Giants pitcher Juan Marichal clubbed Dodgers catcher John Roseboro over the head with a baseball bat. That incident left Roseboro with a gash in his head that reportedly required 14...

Giants follow season's first walk-off with socially distant celebration

In the biggest moments, it's easy to forget about everything else that's going on in 2020. Mike Yastrzemski teed off on a fastball and leaned back to admire it. The Padres dropped their heads. Duane Kuiper's voice continued to rise as the ball sailed through the dark night. "Headed to the water ... it ... is ... outta here!" he yelled as Yastrzemski put his head down and began circling the bases after clinching a Giants win.

Whicker: Can the NBA survive in the ecosystem it built?

Where were they all standing when the music stopped? The Lakers were sitting on top of both the Western Conference and the rim, knocking away shots like kings on a mountain. The Houston Rockets, also known as Smurfin’ USA, were trying to find a title by running through everyone’s legs. The Milwaukee Bucks, a fiery dumpster for so long, were setting historic standards for creating garbage time. And the Clippers had learned to win in between guest appearances by Kawhi Leonard.

Revenge? Dodgers say pain of 2017 loss to Astros can’t be exorcised now

LOS ANGELES — Their bitterness and anger were close to the surface and readily apparent in January and February. An awful lot has happened since January and February, hasn’t it? Back then, a lot of the Dodgers aired their grievances after the Houston Astros were found to have cheated on an unprecedented scale while winning the 2017 championship — a championship that came at the seven-game expense of the Dodgers in the World Series. The Dodgers’ Cody Bellinger walks back to the dugout after str...

As Marlins deal with coronavirus outbreak, MLB proceeds with caution

Thursday, a couple hours before the official start of the new season, Major League Baseball owners ratified a 16-team playoff structure. It was no more radical, perhaps, than the idea of a 60-game regular season. No plan is too large for last-minute tinkering this year – not in this, the shortest and strangest of seasons. MLB will have to adjust on the fly again after postponing two games Monday. A total of 11 Miami Marlins players reportedly tested positive for coronavirus in Philadelphia. Four...
