Cody Bellinger evokes 2019 MVP prowess with 2-run double in Dodgers’ Game 2 win

For a brief, fleeting moment — the amount of time it took Giants reliever Dominic Leone’s sixth-inning fastball to travel from his hand to the plate — Cody Bellinger looked like the guy who was the 2019 National League MVP. Bellinger was balanced and quick, two elements of successful hitting that have eluded him all season. The result was a two-run double to left-center that put the Dodgers ahead 4-1 and set the stage for what became a 9-2 victory in Game 2 of the National League Division Series on Saturday. Bellinger hit .165 with a .542 OPS this season, unfathomably bad numbers for a player who […]

Dodgers rally with 3 runs in 8th to beat Rockies 5-2

Will Smith snapped a tie with a bases-loaded, two-run single in the eighth inning and the Los Angeles Dodgers rallied to defeat the Colorado Rockies 5-2 on Saturday night. Smith stroked a 3-1 pitch from Daniel Bard (7-7) into left field, scoring Max Muncy and Mookie Betts to give the Dodgers a 4-2 lead. “I feel pretty confident in those situations,” Smith said. “I’ve had a lot of success. I feel like I’m not afraid to fail in that moment.” The Dodgers finally cashed in with the bases loaded after failing to score under similar circumstances in the first and third innings. Los Angeles added a run on pinch-hitter AJ Pollock’s […]

Belt homers twice for career-best 19, Giants drub Mets 8-0

Brandon Belt hit two of San Francisco’s four home runs to push his career-best total to 19, rookie Sammy Long pitched into the sixth inning and the Giants trounced the slumping New York Mets 8-0 Tuesday night. After using late-game homers to steal consecutive triumphs from Oakland on Saturday and Sunday, San Francisco powered up early at Citi Field. LaMonte Wade Jr. and Mike Yastrzemski also connected in the first four innings as the Giants jumped to a 7-0 advantage against rookie Tylor Megill (1-3). The lone concern for the Giants: seven-time All-Star catcher Buster Posey was removed with right knee discomfort in the fifth, one inning after being visited behind the […]

Pujols homers against team that cut him, Dodgers beat Angels

Albert Pujols hit his first home run versus the Los Angeles Angels since they released him in May, sending Walker Buehler and the Dodgers to an 8-2 victory Sunday. Cody Bellinger, the former NL MVP who has struggled mightily this season, homered for the second consecutive game, helping the World Series champions take two of three at Dodger Stadium in the Freeway Series. Trea Turner, making his second start as the leadoff batter for the Dodgers since being obtained with Max Scherzer in a trade with Washington, scored twice. Pujols hit a two-run homer in the second inning, connecting as a pinch-hitter for Justin Turner, who exited with […]

Albert Pujols in agreement with Los Angeles Dodgers on major league deal

The Los Angeles Dodgers and future Hall of Fame first baseman Albert Pujols are in agreement on a major league contract, sources told ESPN on Saturday. The deal, first reported by the Los Angeles Times, isn’t expected to become official until Monday, a source said. When it does, the Dodgers will pay Pujols only the prorated portion of the major league minimum salary for the rest of the campaign, roughly $420,000, a sum that will be subtracted from the $30 million salary that is being paid to him by the Los Angeles Angels. Pujols, in the last year of his 10-year, $240 million […]

Shaw, Lauer lead Brewers past Bauer, Dodgers 2-1

Travis Shaw hit a two-run homer in the fourth inning off Trevor Bauer, Eric Lauer won in his first start of the campaign and the Milwaukee Brewers defeated the Los Angeles Dodgers 2-1 on Thursday night. It was the first meeting of the two teams since the first round of last year’s NL playoffs, a two-game sweep by the World Series champion Dodgers. Bauer (3-1) permitted four hits, but the one that hurt was Shaw’s in the fourth. After Avisaíl García walked, Shaw drove a 2-2 curveball over the wall in right. “Probably the wrong pitch,” Bauer said. “Just frustrated with choosing the wrong one.” Bauer went eight […]

Dodgers put Walker Buehler on IL, reinstate Joe Kelly

The Los Angeles Dodgers placed starting pitcher Walker Buehler on the injured list Thursday due to a lingering blister issue in his pitching hand and reinstated hard-throwing reliever Joe Kelly, who will start serving his five-game suspension for his confrontation with Houston Astros hitters in late July. Buehler was placed on the IL in late August because of the same blister, which resides on his right index finger, and he missed a couple of turns through the rotation. He pitched five scoreless innings in his return on Sept. 2, but gave up five runs (two earned) in the third inning versus the Arizona Diamondbacks on Tuesday and later was […]

Clayton Kershaw records 2500th career strikeouts

Clayton Kershaw reached two career strikeout milestones and held Arizona hitless into the sixth inning Thursday night, leading the Los Angeles Dodgers past the Diamondbacks 5-1 for their fifth consecutive victory. While racking up eight strikeouts over six scoreless innings, Kershaw (5-1) became the 39th pitcher in major league history with 2,500 strikeouts when he fanned Nick Ahmed in the second. The left-hander then caught and passed Christy Mathewson (2,502) for 38th place on baseball’s career list by getting Carson Kelly and Tim Locastro in the third. AJ Pollock had a pinch-hit homer and Mookie Betts added an RBI single […]
