Clayton Kershaw may not be happy with Dodgers’ plan for his return

PITTSBURGH >> Clayton Kershaw should be happy. His back injury was less serious than might have been feared when he left his July 23 start. He has returned to health relatively quickly. And his team is so far out front that it can afford t...

    Yasiel Puig caps Dodgers’ ninth-inning rally for win

    LOS ANGELES >> The Dodgers’ dugout emptied onto the field as Austin Barnes rounded third base in the bottom of the ninth inning on Wednesday. They nearly beat Barnes to home plate, but why delay the inevitable? They all knew the script. A double by Yasiel Puig allowed Barnes to score the last run of an improbable yet predictable three-run rally, capping the Dodgers’ 5-4 come-from-behind victory over the Chicago White Sox. It was the 10th time the Dodgers have won a...

    Yu Darvish’s Dodger Stadium debut takes one pitch to go slightly sideways

    LOS ANGELES >> They’ve already provided so many moments, memories and nights that the Dodgers owe their fans nothing. Nothing, at least, until October, when they owe their fans the same thing they owe themselves – a World Series run that cements their place in baseball forever. Still, on Wednesday, this team that simply refuses to disappoint provided more anyway, the Dodgers gifting their fans a potential second ace, one whose greater contribution remains...

    Clayton Kershaw faces live hitters for first time since back injury

    LOS ANGELES >> Dodgers pitcher Clayton Kershaw isn’t always expansive in his postgame interviews. Facing live batters Wednesday for the first time in more than a month, he took the concept of a “simulated game” to heart. After throwing two innings against teammates Chase Utley, Rob Segedin and Joc Pederson, Kershaw glided past a group of reporters in the third-base dugout at Dodger Stadium. He turned his head, briefly. “Everything is...

    Yasiel Puig’s patience pays off in Dodgers’ win

    LOS ANGELES >> The Dodgers’ magic number is so low, they can clinch a playoff berth before the calendar turns to September. They are 50 games over .500 for the first time since 1953. Still, the schedule insists that the regular season lasts another six weeks. For Manager Dave Roberts, that means finding new ways to challenge his players. He batted Yasiel Puig sixth on Tuesday in a 6-1 win over Chicago White Sox, only the second time Puig has batted higher than eighth in...

    Winning Dodgers at a loss for nothing but words

    LOS ANGELES >> He had just caught another comeback victory and hit another home run, Yasmani Grandal now standing in the Dodgers clubhouse and being asked to discuss his team’s astonishing and utter awesomeness. Yet, instead of effervescing with the sort of delight that must come from playing on a club not only chasing but routinely tackling history, Grandal’s rather somber tone suggested he was recounting the passing of a childhood pet. One that was fluffy...

That isn’t the newest southpaw to join the roster. That’s Darvish. Darvish, who will make his first home start for his new team Wednesday against the Chicago White Sox, has been playing catch left-handed for years. “I’m just having fun,” he said through his interpreter. “Sometimes you...

    Claire, Carew team with City of Hope to fight cancer

    GLENDALE >> So many baseball men in khakis and collared shirts strolled the grounds of Oakmont Country Club on Monday, you would be tempted to think this is what they do in retirement: golf. You would only be half right. There was Eddie Murray, the Hall of Fame first baseman. There was Charlie Hough and Orel Hershiser and Shawn Green. On this day, all of them were volunteers for City of Hope, a cancer treatment center in Duarte. Last year, City of Hope became a...
