LA drops 5 of 7 games

The Dodgers had their worst week of the season, and saw their pitching depth stretched to its breaking point. But amazingly it could have been even worse after two disappointing series against Pennsylvania teams.

They dropped two of three to the lowly Pirates, snapping a 16-game winning streak over the Bucs. Then the Dodgers came home and got bludgeoned by Bryce Harper and the Phillies for three games. A four-run deficit had Los...

Sunday in the Dodgers minor leagues saw a multi-homer game for a player on the 40-man roster, a promotion for a 2020 draftee, some eye-popping run totals, and another downturn for a pitcher in Triple-A.

Hidden in the path to Sunday’s win over the Phillies was Justin Turner’s advice that later helped Gavin Lux, whose ninth-inning double gave the Dodgers their first walk-off win of the season.

The counsel happened after Lux struck out in the fifth inning, per Jack Harris of the Los Angeles Times:

Turner noticed the weight distribution in Lux’s swing was off. Where earlier this season he was loading slightly more on his back leg, he was now...

Dodgers' Gavin Lux delivers walk-off hit after committing key error

Lux booted a routine groundball during the top of the second inning against the Phillies. Instead of Lux recording what should have been the third out, he didn’t field the ball, and a run scored on his error.

Gavin Lux made a two-out error that opened the door for four unearned runs in the second inning. But he also hit a two-out, two-run double in the ninth inning to deliver a Dodgers walk-off win over the Phillies on Sunday afternoon at Dodger Stadium.

Lux saves the day, Dodgers win 5-4

Lux’s two-out hit drives in winning run in walk-off victory

One of those things that always seems to happen is a player will make a great defensive play and then immediately be up to bat in the following half-inning. Well, today, Gavin Lux had a different fielding play in mind when he stepped up in the bottom of the ninth.

The Dodgers were trailing 4-3 and Lux knew that the Phillies would not have scored at all if he didn’t make an error to extend...

Phillies have not swept four-game series at LA since 1985

The last time the Dodgers were swept at home by the Phillies was from August 29 to September 1, 1985. The Dodger starting rotation for that series was Orel Hershiser, Fernando Valenzuela, Bob Welch and Jerry Reuss.

Today, Michael Grove makes his major league debut in a starting role for the Dodgers. He is the Dodgers first pick from the 2018 draft to make his MLB debut.

Pages reached base four times

Three of the four affiliates won for the Dodgers quite easily Saturday night, outscoring their opponents 24 to 4. A pair of top prospects show up among top performers in the system for the night.

Hitter of the day

Andy Pages has struggled at the plate over the last two weeks and if you go back to April 24, his slash line has dropped from .316/.435/.509 all the way to .216/.336/.343 entering Friday.

No timetable yet for Treinen’s return

Dodgers pitcher Blake Treinen is expected to be out quite a while with right shoulder discomfort. The exact timetable isn’t clear, but it doesn’t seem like the veteran right-hander will be back before the All-Star break.

Treinen, who last pitched in a game on April 14, told reporters Saturday that he hasn’t resumed throwing yet. From J.P. Hoornstra in the Orange County Register:

Still, the range of motion in Treinen’s shoulder hasn’t...

It’s been just over ten years since Bryce Harper made his major league debut at Dodger Stadium, when he was a mere teenager. On Saturday night, the 29-year-old closed escrow on the third-oldest ballpark in the majors, leading the Phillies to a third straight win over the Dodgers, this one 8-3.

Harper doubled and scored in the first inning, then hit a majestic three-run home run in the...

Dodgers to promote Double-A pitcher Michael Grove

The 25-year-old Grove was a second-round pick for the Dodgers in the 2018 draft, and could have gone higher if he hadn’t had over a full season of college ball wiped out by Tommy John surgery.

Michael Grove expected to debut Sunday

The Dodgers will send Julio Urías on Saturday night against the Phillies, one day earlier than originally planned. But schedules had to be altered after Clayton Kershaw went on the injured list Friday.

Walker Buehler allowed five runs on nine hits, both season highs, in five innings on Friday in four days rest. Urías will be pitching on four days rest on Saturday. Dodgers starters have pitched nine times on four days...
