The Los Angeles Dodgers had a new left fielder in the lineup Wednesday night - Matt Kemp. The frustrated veteran wasn't in the starting lineup the previous five games, but got a chance to get back in there because of Carl Crawford's sprained left ankle.
Brandon Phillips gets as much of a charge out of making a defensive gem to save a run as he does hitting a home run. Wednesday night, he was able to do both in the same inning to help the Cincinnati Reds pin a frustrating loss on two-time Cy Young Award winner Clayton Kershaw.
The carousel in the Los Angeles Dodgers' crowded outfield keeps spinning, and center fielder Andre Ethier won't be getting off anytime soon with the way he is swinging the bat and playing defense - especially after left fielder Carl Crawford sprained his ankle.
The Cincinnati Reds didn't expect to have an easy time scoring runs against Zack Greinke, who was trying to play "follow-the-leader" after a no-hitter by Josh Beckett on Sunday and seven perfect innings by Hyun-Jin Ryu on Monday.
Matt Kemp was out of the Dodgers' starting lineup for the fourth straight game Monday, and he's being groomed to play left field because the team isn't confident he can handle the defensive demands of playing center field at the moment.
Dan Haren, the veteran that he is, has made a living pitching deep into games after giving up a few early runs. And, for a change, he was able to do it against the Miami Marlins thanks to a clutch home run by Yasiel Puig.
Dan Haren didn't let a little thing like a four-run inning discourage him. He had plenty of confidence in his teammates' ability to get him some runs, and they didn't disappoint him against a pitcher they'd never seen before.
Andre Ethier hit a three-run homer and Juan Uribe added a solo shot in the first inning off Oakland's Jarrod Parker as the Los Angeles Dodgers and A's played to an 8-all tie Monday.
Hanley Ramirez will start for the Los Angeles Dodgers in Game 3 of the NL championship series despite a broken left rib.
The Dodgers' offense is struggling, and they might have to face St. Louis ace Adam Wainwright without their top hitter in Game 3 of the NL championship series.
The Cardinals managed only two hits off Clayton Kershaw and the Dodgers, but Jon Jay's sacrifice fly set up by A.J. Ellis' passed ball in the fifth stood up for a 1-0 St. Louis victory.
A Washington Nationals batting practice pitcher claims the Philadelphia Phillies and general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. defamed him and ruined his job possibilities, in a lawsuit filed Monday in the Philadelphia County Court of Common Pleas.
The Los Angeles Dodgers signed outfielder Andre Ethier to a five-year deal through 2017 on Tuesday, keeping him and Matt Kemp together in the middle of the lineup.
The Los Angeles Dodgers signed outfielder Andre Ethier to an $85 million, five-year deal through 2017 on Tuesday, keeping him and Matt Kemp together in the middle of the lineup.
Kevin Millwood and five relievers combined on the third no-hitter in Seattle Mariners history, a 1-0 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Friday night.
"We had a quick four-run deficit and we were kind of playing back on our heels and not playing the way we were capable of doing," Ethier said. "But Gonzo and Matty came up with big hits right there and Haren did a good job from there on out and kept their guys off the bases."
"Sometimes you just have bad years and things don't come together the right way," Ethier said. "I wouldn't say you could blame it on the fact that the ownership's going through what they're going through. They have given us the people to go out and do it, and it's up to the players to execute and make it happen."
