Cubs explode for six runs in sixth, get series win

Walker Buehler was one strike away from escaping the sixth inning unharmed. LA was hanging on to a 3-0 lead, as the Cubs had runners on first and second with Javier Baez at the plate.

After two fastballs to start the at-bat, Baez fell behind 0-2. Buehler threw an 83 mph slider right down the heart of the plate that Baez connected on, homering and tying the game at three.

Three batters later, Jason Heyward stepped up to the plate with two runners on, and had a three-run homer for himself,...

Quakes breakup no-hitter in 10th and win 3-0

Drew Avans triple ends no-hitter and shutout in 10th

Just two games were played and an extra-inning win by the Quakes gave the Dodger affiliates a split on Tuesday.

Player of the day

Drew Avans got the only hit for the Quakes but it was a big one. A two-run triple gave the Quakes the lead and then Avans scored on Montgomery’s squeeze bunt.

Cubs completely derail the Dodgers

The Dodgers’ record falls to 15-10

The Dodgers couldn’t get ahead of the Cubs and it wasn’t pretty. They lost the series opener with a score of 7-2.

Things got off on the wrong foot in the top of the 1st, when the Dodgers went down in order without putting up any sort of fight.

The rough start continued through to the bottom half of the inning, where the Cubs would rally with Kenta Maeda on the mound. After allowing a base hit and two walks to load the bases, Maeda gave up a two-out...

Rich Hill to return to Dodgers after dominant rehab start

Rich Hill didn’t think he needed another rehab start before joining the Los Angeles Dodgers, and he backed it up with his performance. Hill has not pitched in the majors this season due to a left knee problem, and was sent for another rehab start despite his protestations. He took the mound and showed just how ready he was to join the MLB team. Unsurprisingly, Hill has been slated to start Sunday against the Pittsburgh Pirates. Hill can be a bit ornery, and it sounds like he was ready to...

Floro and Alexander are keys to the bullpen

The two relievers are flying under the radar, but their contributions are substantial.

As they enter a three-game series with the Cubs, the Dodgers’ bullpen has an ERA of just under five. Nearly half of their losses (4 of 9) have come at the hands of the bullpen. Though it is early in the season, a lot of fans have panicked over LA’s lack of bullpen depth.

Now, that is for good reason. Joe Kelly has gotten off to a rough start. Pedro Baez has struggled to find his groove. Kenley Jansen...

Cody Bellinger enjoying dream April, and it’s no fluke

Opponents of the Los Angeles Dodgers have done their best. But try as it might, no team has figured out the mystery of Cody Bellinger in 2019. Bellinger has absolutely lit up MLB pitching this season. His numbers would look outrageous in a video game. Only he’s achieved them in real life. Bellinger is hitting .424 with a 1.382 OPS. He has 11 home runs, four doubles and a triple. For good measure, he’s also thrown in four steals. That puts Bellinger on pace to hit 74 home runs, steal 27...

Dodgers Week 4: Back on track

The Dodgers rebounded from a truly bad week with an exceptionally strong performance. They won six of seven games thanks to a bolstered and revitalized starting staff and just enough offense to sweep the Reds and take a road series in Milwaukee.

The Dodgers played the Brewers seven times over a 10-day stretch and just like last year’s NLCS, Los Angeles was able to win four games. The weekend’s stretch at Miller Park featured not one but two game-winning home runs against fireman...

Bellinger is still unstoppable

His performance against the Brewers gets him named the TBLA Player of the Series

After the Dodgers made a great outing in the four-game set against the Brewers, Cody Bellinger’s performance is the one that shined the brightest.

Bellinger is one of the best hitters in baseball - in the same conversation as guys like Mike Trout and Christian Yelich - and he didn’t slack off in Milwaukee. His most impactful game came on Sunday afternoon, when he stole a home run from Yelich in the 8th and...

Oklahoma City falls, all other affiliates have off-day

The Oklahoma City Dodgers were the only minor-league affiliated team to play on Sunday, as most of minor-league baseball took the day off for Easter.

Triple-A Oklahoma City

A five-run outburst in the sixth was enough for the Iowa Cubs, as they defeated the Oklahoma City Dodgers 8-3.

The Cubs led the inning of with three consecutive walks. After a sacrifice fly and intentional walk, the bases were loaded for Jim Adduci. He hit the first pitch he saw over the center field wall for a grand...

Cody Bellinger hits go-ahead homer in ninth, Dodgers get series win over Brewers

Cody Bellinger delivered in the clutch, as his go-ahead home run in the ninth inning helped give the Dodgers the 6-5 victory over the Brewers.

It looked good for the Dodgers late in the game, as they held a three-run lead in the eighth. With two outs, the Brewers had two runners on. Dave Roberts turned to Kenley Jansen to get the four-out save. On a full count, Eric Thames took Jansen deep, tying the game at five.

After back-to-back strikeouts to start the ninth, it looked as if the Dodgers...
