Vin Scully is staying in the booth for the Los Angeles Dodgers.
His absence from the field this year probably hasn't helped; Harper missed just over two months after undergoing surgery on his thumb in late April, and has struggled at the plate since rejoining the lineup.
The lawsuit sought millions of dollars for the 45-year-old Stow, who was left with disabling brain damage following the attack in a stadium parking lot after an opening day game between the California rivals.
Welch went 27-6 with a 2.95 ERA and won the American League Cy Young award in 1990 as he led the Oakland Athletics to the World Series. The A's announced Welch's death Tuesday afternoon.
Brandon Cumpton was nearly flawless through the first four innings in his eight previous starts in the big leagues, allowing just one run. The Los Angeles Dodgers did quite a number on the Pittsburgh Pirates right-hander on Saturday, scoring 11 times before the fifth inning.
Francisco Liriano finally got that long-awaited first victory of the season.
The career-high 128 pitches Josh Beckett threw in his no-hitter didn't hurt him Friday night against the Pirates - at least not as much as Ike Davis' tape-measure home run.
Through most of the first two months of the season, Yasiel Puig batted second and Hanley Ramirez hit third for the Los Angeles Dodgers. Ramirez is still hitting behind Puig, only now they are in the third and fourth spots, and the change is starting to generate positive results for manager Don Mattingly.
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.
"Brooklyn had their heart broken," he said as he held up the jersey and referred to the Dodgers leaving for Los Angeles after the 1957 baseball season. "We cried for so many years. ...Look how far we've come."
He added: "But the county and the town did not want to spend any money to support them. It's too much of a commute to go to Brooklyn to a game. I will watch it on television."
