Dodgers Week 21: Home run records, but breaking even

Jason Getz-USA TODAY Sports

The Dodgers last week put on a power display last week that included a few major league records, but somehow managed just a .500 record on the road against the Marlins and Braves.

It’s hard to muster much excitement over home run records when long balls these days are more prevalent than hard candy at your grandmother’s house. But even in a juiced-ball environment the Dodgers have managed to stand out, easily pacing the National League in home runs this...

Dodgers unsure when they'll call up hot-hitting prospect Gavin Lux

As Gavin Lux continues to shred Triple-A pitching, it isn’t yet clear if the star prospect will make his Dodgers debut in 2019, Bill Plunkett of the Orange County Register writes. Dodgers president of baseball operations Andrew Friedman simply said “I don’t know” when asked about the possibility of a Lux promotion, as Friedman cited considerations like finding room for Lux on the 40-man roster while juggling the roster status of other players returning from the injured list. “I...

Player of the Series: Justin Turner

Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

It’s the third time he gets this TBLA honor

It’s always tough to award a Player of the Series award when the Dodgers lose a series — which isn’t often.

One player who found a way to get a hit in more than half of his at-bats was Justin Turner. JT went 7-for-12 with two walks this weekend. He came in to score in each one of the three games as well.

Ronald Acuna makes 'no excuse' for lack of hustle that got him benched

Ronald Acuna Jr was benched during Sunday’s game for not hustling, and the Atlanta Braves superstar accepted responsibility following his team’s 5-3 win over the Los Angeles Dodgers. Acuna was pulled in the third inning after he admired a long fly ball that ended up hitting off the right field wall. The 21-year-old thought he had hit a homer, and his slow start to first base resulted in it only being a single. While speaking with reporters after the game, Acuna said through an...

The Dodgers record falls to 82-44

The Dodgers’ reign over the Braves is over. For the first time since 2015, LA lost a 3-game series to Atlanta.

Tony Gonsolin looked great on the mound for the Dodgers, but it was Dustin May who let the game slip out of reach in the 5-3 loss to Atlanta.

The Dodgers got off to a great start when Cody Bellinger smacked home run No. 42 to give the team a 3-0 lead with one out in...
