Dodgers’ Max Muncy persevering through side effect of broken finger

Max Muncy might have reached a turning point. The Dodgers’ first baseman entered Game 4 of the World Series with the same number of hits in his last five postseason games – six – as he had in his first 10. Although Muncy’s superlative patience has kept him hitting cleanup in Dave Roberts’ lineup, the erstwhile slugger hasn’t had much success putting the ball in play until recently. Muncy had just two home runs to show for his first 15 playoff games. Call it a lingering side effect of the broken ...

Dodgers’ Cody Bellinger has lower back stiffness, will DH in Game 4

ARLINGTON, Texas — Cody Bellinger has provided highlight plays in center field during this postseason and is a Gold Glove finalist at the position in the National League. But he was moved to designated hitter for Game 4 of the World Series after waking up with a stiff lower back on Saturday morning. Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said Bellinger arrived at Globe Life Field for treatment and tried moving around on the field and taking swings in the batting cage. “He just didn’t feel good,” Roberts s...

Alexander: Austin Barnes is more than just a personal catcher

The Fox broadcast guys were fumbling with this one. Austin Barnes, heretofore Clayton Kershaw’s personal catcher and now appearing to add Walker Buehler’s starts to his resumé, had just followed a near-perfect safety squeeze bunt in the fourth inning with a booming 425-foot home run into the Tampa Bay bullpen in the sixth, for the Dodgers’ sixth run in their 6-2 Game 3 victory on Friday night. At first, John Smoltz suggested – guessed? – that it might have been the first time it ever happened in...

Dodgers’ Justin Turner continues his postseason dominance in World Series

Justin Turner celebrates his hits with a simple gesture: he raises both wrists, droops his hands downward, and wags his fingers back and forth. Teammate Chris Taylor inspired it after a four-hit game in 2017. Turner picked it up. Now it’s become a ritual. The ritual is getting a lot of camera time in 2020. Turner has hits in 13 of his last 15 games dating to Game 1 of the National League Division Series. He’s reached base one way or another in each of his last 11. Turner’s steady bat was thumpin...

Whicker: Walker Buehler’s Octobers belong in an era when people were actually watching

If nobody sees Walker Buehler throw enough heavy baseballs to scatter the Tampa Bay Rays like tenpins, does it still count? The Dodgers think so. They lead this World Series 2-1, thanks to a 6-2 Game 3 win on Friday that continued Buehler’s blossoming into a legend of the fall. It wasn’t just him. Justin Turner took Charlie Morton deep in the first inning, then snatched Mike Zunino’s bullet and turned it into a double play in the third inning. Zunino was the ninth batter to face Buehler. It took...

Dodgers torment Rays with two-out hits, take World Series Game 3

ARLINGTON, Texas — Just when you think you’re out – they pull you back in. The Dodgers’ offense has been ruthless this postseason when opposing pitchers start to peek toward the dugout, wondering which flavor Gatorade (the ubiquitous beverage of the postseason) they will swig with satisfaction after retiring the side. Five times on Friday night the Tampa Bay Rays pitchers were one out away from sweet hydration when the Dodgers scored. The two-out torment carried the Dodgers to a 6-2 victory over...

Dodgers’ unpredictable bullpen order is by design

The Dodgers were leading the Tampa Bay Rays 8-1 in the seventh inning when Dylan Floro entered Game 1 of the World Series. He only retired one of the three batters he faced, then gave the ball to left-hander Victor Gonzalez, who allowed both inherited runners to score. In Game 2, the Dodgers were trailing 1-0 when Floro relieved Tony Gonsolin in the second inning. This time, Floro was tasked with retiring a different trio than he saw the day before: Willy Adames, Kevin Kiermaier and Mike Zunino....

Angels pitcher Griffin Canning among Gold Glove finalists

Griffin Canning was listed among the three finalists for the American League Gold Glove at pitcher on Thursday. He is the only Angels player with a chance to win a Gold Glove when the winners are announced Nov. 3. The other two finalists are Kenta Maeda of the Minnesota Twins and Zach Plesac of the Cleveland Indians. Gold Gloves are normally determined by a vote of managers and coaches, along with a statistical component, but this year only the metrics were used because teams did not play games ...

Dodgers’ Alex Wood not drawn into 2017 revisionist history

ARLINGTON, Texas — It is one of many alternate endings that have been suggested for the 2017 World Series (and there are many). The Dodgers should have started Alex Wood in Game 7, the revisionists say. He was the Dodgers’ best pitcher in that series against the Houston Astros and even on just three days’ rest Wood would have given the Dodgers a better chance than Yu Darvish, who lasted only 10 batters in the Game 7 loss. Wood pitched the final two innings of that game in relief, striking out th...

Dodgers marvel at Mookie Betts’ everyday excellence

ARLINGTON, Texas — Mookie Betts finished second to Mike Trout in the voting for the American League MVP Award in 2016. There was no shame in that. After all, Mike Trout wins the award every year, or seems to, and has been acclaimed as the greatest player of his generation, one of the best in baseball history. Betts had just finished his second full season in the big leagues with the Boston Red Sox. He received nine first-place votes (to Trout’s 19) following a season that saw him make his first ...

For the Dodgers, Charlie Morton is a familiar, forbidding face in the World Series

The manager, A.J. Hinch, brought the hook. The starter-turned-reliever, Charlie Morton, brought the sinker. The line was something that almost never happened at the expense of the 2017 Dodgers:  Four innings, two hits, one runs, seven strikeouts. Game 7 of that World Series ended with a first-pitch grounder by Corey Seager, and Morton celebrated with his Houston teammates, although a small part of him probably wanted to keep pitching. It should be noted that Morton brought no garage cans or surv...

Whicker: Brandon Lowe, as in pow, gives Rays the power surge they need

First off, it’s Brandon Lowe, rhymes with “Somehow.” For most of this playoff grind he has been trying to get a hit somehow. He was 0 for 18 in five games against the Yankees and 4 for 26 in seven games against Houston. He was the final member of the American League champions to remove the cloak of anonymity that tends to shroud members of the Tampa Bay Rays, thanks to where they play and how relatively little they get paid and how few fans bother to see them. Snap judgments are dangerous in bas...

Whicker: Rays win Game 2’s march of the relievers

The Dodgers and Rays played spin-the-reliever Wednesday night, the new gaming craze that suits some teams more than others. Tampa Bay’s more orderly pitching procession was superior to the Dodgers’ grab-bag approach. That, along with an awakened Tampa Bay offense, evened the World Series with a 6-4 Rays’ victory. Once upon a time, relief pitchers were used to lift the burden off the starters. Like so much else in baseball, that process has somersaulted. Tampa Bay pushed young Tyler Glasnow, from...
