Dodgers dominated by Yu Darvish in loss to Padres

SAN DIEGO — In keeping with the new crackdown on grip-enhancing substances, the umpires checked Padres starter Yu Darvish multiple times during Monday’s game. Like most of the Dodgers hitters, they came up empty. Darvish struck out 11 in six innings, including seven consecutive batters at one point, holding the Dodgers to two hits as a delighted sellout crowd at Petco Park watched the San Diego Padres “Beat L.A.,” 6-2. The latest renewal of this fresh-out-of-the-wrapper rivalry once again was pl...

Albert Pujols on his Dodgers days: ‘This is the most fun that I’ve had in awhile’

SAN DIEGO — The shade stretched all the way up I-5 to Anaheim. “This is the most fun that I’ve had in a while,” Albert Pujols said Monday afternoon about his time with the Dodgers. “I’m having a great time right now, enjoying every moment, And, I’m just glad every time I’m out there I can help this ballclub to win and that’s my goal. I really don’t think ahead and just really focus on the moment and I’m enjoying this moment right now.” On the field, Pujols has been exactly what the Dodgers hoped...

Inside the Dodgers: The Zach Reks effect

Long time, no newsletter. I know. Checking in today with some breaking news – Zach Reks has been recalled from Oklahoma City in advance of tonight’s game in San Diego – and some bigger-picture perspective to go along with it. If you’re new to this newsletter, that’s usually how this goes. The most interesting aspect of the Dodgers’ roster this season has been their bench – not the most satisfying, not the most electric, but certainly the least predictable. The group has included, at times, 22-ye...

Jon Rahm triumphs at U.S. Open for first major title

SAN DIEGO — Two career-changing putts for Jon Rahm brought two trophies Sunday. He cradled his 3-month-old son, Kepa, as he walked off the 18th green at Torrey Pines on Father’s Day. And then he collected the silver U.S. Open trophy after a performance filled with passion and absent of blunders that wiped out everyone else. Rahm made a bending 25-foot birdie putt on the 17th hole to catch Louis Oosthuizen. He buried another curling, left-to-right birdie putt from 18 feet on the final hole for a ...

Dodgers find themselves in unexpected 3-team race in NL West

PHOENIX — The Dodgers head to San Diego on Monday for another showdown series … between second- and third-place teams. As the midpoint of the season nears, the National League West is home to the teams with the league’s two best records. But the highly-anticipated battle in the NL West has featured an interloper. It is the San Francisco Giants who lead the division – and have the best record in the majors – not either of the two teams that dominated preseason hype. The Giants have been a surpris...

July 4th 2021: Fireworks and other fun at Southern California casinos

In 2020, Fourth of July celebrations were canceled because of the coronavirus pandemic. Even Southern California’s tribal casinos, which had just opened from their COVID-19 related closures, eschewed their typical fireworks displays. A year later, festivities will return to some casinos. Expect colorful drinks; music and the return of pyrotechnic shows for casino patrons and nearby residents to enjoy. Here’s what casinos have planned: Agua Caliente Resort Casino Spa Rancho Mirage  32250 Bob Hope...

Dodgers coach Mark Prior says pitchers will adjust to MLB crackdown

PHOENIX — Things are about to change for Mark Prior’s charges. But the Dodgers pitching coach says things change all the time. “I honestly don’t know,” Prior said Saturday when asked how MLB’s planned crackdown on the use of grip-enhancing substances beginning Monday might affect the performance of the Dodgers’ pitchers. “It’s not going to change how we go about preparing for Monday. And if things do change then we adjust. That’s part of the game anyway. We adapt. You always have to go through a...

How volunteering at Dodger Stadium during COVID-19 influenced author’s book on Los Angeles

One might assume that Rosecrans Baldwin, author of “Paris, I Love You But You’re Bringing Me Down” and “The Last Kid Left,” is L.A. born-and-raised, given that he shares his first name with the street that runs from Manhattan Beach to Fullerton. He’s not. Baldwin, who was born in Chicago and raised primarily in Connecticut, had only visited the city a handful of times before moving here more than six years ago. “I always choose George as my Starbucks name, because Rosecrans is just asking for pe...

Alexander: Richard Bland’s story of persistence plays out at US Open

This one is for the grinders. Thirteen years after Rocco Mediate stood up for Everyman at a U.S. Open at Torrey Pines, England’s Richard Bland struck another blow for persistence when his 67 put him at 6-under and, for a while Friday afternoon, atop the second-round leaderboard at the 2021 Open. The back story? Bland, 48, is in San Diego because he won the British Masters, part of the U.S. Open 2021 European Tour Qualifying Series, in May. That alone is a cool story, but consider: It was his fi...

By David Crary | Associated Press U.S. Catholic bishops overwhelmingly approved the drafting of a “teaching document” that many of them hope will rebuke Catholic politicians, including President Joe Biden, for receiving Communion despite their support for abortion rights. The result of the vote — 168 in favor and 55 against — was announced Friday near the end of a three-day meeting of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) that was held virtually.

‘The Rocketeer’ Star Billy Campbell Reflects on a Superhero Masterpiece as It Turns 30 [Interview]

This month marks a milestone for one of the most underrated Disney films. The Rocketeer arrived in theaters in the summer of 1991, delivering a 1930s-era adventure of a pilot who stumbles upon a jetpack being sought after by gangsters, FBI agents, Nazis, and millionaire industrialist Howard Hughes.
