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 […]

Los Angeles Angels rookie Reid Detmers throws no-hitter against Tampa Bay Rays

Los Angeles Angels rookie left-hander Reid Detmers pitched a no-hitter in a 12-0 triumph over the Tampa Bay Rays on Tuesday night at Angel Stadium, becoming at age 22 the youngest pitcher to throw one since Anibal Sanchez in 2006 for the Marlins. It was the majors’ second no-hitter this season, and the 12th in franchise history. “I just blacked out,” Detmers said. “I don’t know.” The closest play to a hit came with one out in the top of the seventh inning when Tampa Bay’s Brett Phillips hit a medium-hard grounder to the right of first baseman Jared Walsh. The ball bounced off Walsh’s glove and then he dropped the […]

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 […]

Los Angeles Angels’ Mike Trout day-to-day after pitch injures left hand

Mike Trout left the Los Angeles Angels’ 8-3 win over the Texas Rangers on Sunday after being hit in his left hand by a pitch, but the team said X-rays were negative, and the three-time American League MVP is day-to-day. Trout was struck by a 1-1 slider from Rangers right-hander Spencer Patton leading off the fifth inning. Trout said he had difficultly picking up the 81 mph pitch in the shadows on a day when Globe Life Field’s roof was open and that he lowered his hands to protect his midsection. “Like a normal day, I probably just turn like this [pivoting his left shoulder inward] and just […]

Los Angeles Angels’ Shohei Ohtani makes spring mound debut, striking out five and giving up one run

Two-way star Shohei Ohtani had a solid spring training debut on the mound Monday, striking out five while giving up one run over 2⅓ innings for the Los Angeles Angels. Last year’s American League MVP was sharp in the first, getting a called strike on his first pitch to Kansas City’s Kyle Isbel and then earning the strikeout by blowing a high fastball past the left fielder three pitches later. The right-hander retired seven of the 11 hitters he faced. Edward Olivares hit a one-out single and JaCoby Jones was hit by a pitch in the second. The Royals scored their run in the third when Isbel’s […]

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. During his 12th big league season, the first baseman hit .300 (eighth in the National League) with 31 homers, 83 RBIs and an NL-leading 120 runs. Freeman’s deal has the second-highest average annual value ($27 million) ever for a first baseman (behind Miguel Cabrera’s eight-year deal with […]

Tiger Woods frustrated at pace of recovery after wreck, ‘still working’ on walking with limited golf activity

Tiger Woods stated he will be back playing golf on the PGA Tour; he just doesn’t know when. As Woods, 46, nears the one-year anniversary of the car wreck that nearly cost him his right leg and led to multiple surgeries, he said Wednesday that he’s making progress — but not nearly as fast as he wants. “I wish I could tell you when I’m playing again,” Woods said during a news conference at the Genesis Invitational, which benefits his foundation. “I want to know, but I don’t. My golf activity has been very limited. I can chip and putt really […]

Golden State Warriors’ Klay Thompson erupts in 4th quarter to down Los Angeles Lakers

The final stretch of the Golden State Warriors’ Saturday night game versus the Los Angeles Lakers felt eerily similar to the contest they played against the New York Knicks two days before. The Warriors were having trouble with the Lakers’ size. They also experienced some periods of ball-watching. And their execution was poor. But there was a major, game-changing difference. After missing the shot that would have sent their game against the Knicks into overtime, Klay Thompson came out as a flamethrower in the final quarter in a 117-115 win over the Lakers. He scored 16 points in the fourth, the most he’s scored in a quarter […]
