HR-happy Dodgers surge past D-Backs, win doubleheader opener

Although the Los Angeles Dodgers keep falling behind early, they’ve had enough power lately to make sure they don’t stay there. Mookie Betts, Trea Turner and Justin Turner homered in a five-run sixth inning, and the Dodgers outlasted the Arizona Diamondbacks 7-6 Tuesday to start the first doubleheader ever played between the NL West rivals. Will Smith also connected early for the Dodgers, whose four homers matched their season high. Betts also doubled and singled, and Freddie Freeman added a key RBI single in the seventh inning of Los Angeles’ third consecutive win after a four-game skid. The Dodgers fell behind by multiple runs for the seventh consecutive game, but rallied […]

Padres win 3-2 in 10 to end 10-game losing streak to Dodgers

Austin Nola hit a sacrifice fly with one out in the 10th inning for the San Diego Padres, who won 3-2 on Saturday night to snap a 10-game losing streak to the rival Los Angeles Dodgers. Nola’s sac fly scored rookie CJ Abrams, who started as the automatic runner at second base and advanced on Trent Grisham’s sacrifice bunt. Justin Bruihl (0-1) took the loss. The Padres had been outscored 57-23 during the losing streak to the Dodgers, which dated to Aug. 24. Losing three consecutive series to Los Angeles late last season helped contribute to the Padres’ stunning collapse, which left them with a losing […]

Freddie Freeman reaches agreement with Los Angeles Dodgers on six-year, $162 million deal

Freddie Freeman has agreed to terms with the Los Angeles Dodgers on a six-year, $162 million deal, sources told ESPN’s Jeff Passan and Kiley McDaniel on Wednesday night. Freeman, 32, reached free agency for the first time in his career after helping the Atlanta Braves attain their first World Series since 1995 with a six-game triumph over the Houston Astros.

Los Angeles Dodgers promote Brandon Gomes to general manager

Brandon Gomes, a former major league pitcher just six years removed from his playing days, has been named general manager of the Los Angeles Dodgers, a position left vacant since Farhan Zaidi’s departure to the San Francisco Giants. Gomes, 37, has a long history with Dodgers president of baseball operations Andrew Friedman, who initially traded for Gomes when he served as GM of the Tampa Bay Rays in December 2010. Shortly after Gomes retired at the end of the 2016 season, Friedman — two years into his tenure with the Dodgers at that point — hired him as the organization’s pitching performance coordinator.

Cody Bellinger, Los Angeles Dodgers agreed to 1-year, $17M deal before lockout

Slugger Cody Bellinger and the Los Angeles Dodgers agreed on a one-year, $17 million contract to avoid arbitration before the Dec. 1 lockout that has shut down Major League Baseball and frozen transactions, sources familiar with the agreement told ESPN. The deal was not revealed after the lockout, as teams are not referencing players by name during the work stoppage that has lasted more than three weeks and will stretch into the new year. Bellinger, 26, is coming off the worst season of his career, hitting .165/.240/.302 with 10 home runs in 95 matches. His postseason performance, however, rekindled memories of his 2019 season, […]

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 […]
