Dodgers lose heart-breaker on balk

The Dodgers hit three late solo home runs on Saturday night. Sadly, it was to no avail. A bases-loaded balk would be the deciding factor, as the Mariners beat LA 5-4.

This marks yet another game the Dodgers bullpen wasn’t able to keep it together.

With one out and the bases loaded, Kyle Seager stepped up to the plate. On an 0-1 pitch, Floro stepped out, but was issued a balk, thus ending the game.

LA would put a run on the board in the first after a Cody Bellinger RBI single.

Manny Machado finally living up to expectations

Last night Manny Machado hit his first home run since July 30. He made up for lost time by hitting two.

Through Machado’s first 16 games with LA, he had a very under-whelming slash line of .250/.360/.391/.751. When the Dodgers traded for him during the All-Star break, they were expecting to be getting one of the best hitters in the game.

In the first-half with Baltimore, Machado’s slash was .315/.387/.575/.963, so the drop-off was a fairly significant one.

Even more concerning than...

Rich Hill’s up-and-down season

Rich Hill has been one of the best pitchers in baseball over the last month

It’s been an eventful season for the 38-year-old Rich Hill.

After numerous DL stints and disastrous starts, Hill has completely turned his season around, and gone from being a question mark with every start, to one of the more reliable pitchers on the Dodgers.

Hill’s season got off to a shaky start. Through three starts, he allowed 10 runs in 15 innings. On April 18, he was placed on the DL with a left third...

Dodgers hit five homers in blowout win

Theme of the night: Dingers.

The offense left nothing to chance for the Dodgers Friday, making Safeco Field look small and giving the bullpen plenty of wiggle room. The visiting team launched five home runs in support of a strong effort from Walker Buehler, cruising to an 11-1 win over the Mariners.

It was the sixth time the Dodgers have hit at least five homers this season. At least since 1908 — and it’s highly doubtful it was done before then — there have been only six teams to hit...

Dodgers activate Hudson, Jansen hopeful

The Dodgers on Friday activated reliever Daniel Hudson from the disabled list, while sending reliever Erik Goeddel back to the 10-day disabled list with right elbow inflammation.

Hudson missed the last 10 days with forearm tightness after making only one appearance this month, going two scoreless inning on August 3. The right-hander has appeared in 38 games, trailing only Scott Alexander (55) and Kenley Jansen (51).

Hudson has allowed 23 runs (19 earned) in 43 2?3 innings this season,...

Chris Taylor and his strikeout woes

Taylor currently leads the NL in strikeouts

It hasn’t been a great year for Chris Taylor.

After a breakout 2017 campaign, Taylor has been struggling to recapture last years magic. Last season, Taylor hit .288 with 21 home runs and 72 RBI. He was one of the better surprises in all of baseball.

Currently for the season, Taylor is hitting .248. He has 13 home runs and 52 RBI. Not a huge drop-off by any means. In fact, he was near the leader board in runs batted in for the month of July....

Walker Buehler innings limit a near non-factor

Where might he slot into a playoff rotation?

Coming into the season, folks wondered about Walker Buehler for a number of reasons — the most prominent being his innings restriction.

It was reported back in spring training that the official/unofficial number would be somewhere in the 140- to 150-inning range. This being his second full year back from Tommy John surgery, that’s more than a fair number.

Well here we are in the middle of August and Buehler is sitting at just 81 1?3 innings at...

Isaac Anderson leads Quakes, errors cost OKC

Rain outs and off days caused nearly half of the Dodgers farm system to not play a game.

Player of the day

Isaac Anderson shut the Storm down. In seven innings, the right-hander allowed zero runs while striking out nine. He also issued zero walks and only allowed four hits. His nine strikeouts are a season-high. It’s also the second time he’s gone seven innings.

Do you have home video celebrating the 1988 playoffs?

MLB suspends Yasiel Puig for two games

Tuesday night, things got a little heated between the San Francisco Giants and Los Angeles. But that’s not the surprising part. In fact, that’s fairly common for the NL West rivals. What kind of surprises us is the fact that Yasiel Puig is getting a two-game suspension while the San Francisco backup catcher gets… zero. Both players will receive a fine, however. Before the incident, the Dodgers outfielder got upset after fouling off a pitch. He thought he should’ve hit the ball better...

Justin Turner and Cody Bellinger are the hottest hitters in baseball

Both are hitting above .400 since August 4

Over the last few weeks, the Dodgers offense has been among one of the worst in all of baseball. Ironically, they have the two best hitters in baseball during that stretch.

Since August 4, Cody Bellinger (.441) and Justin Turner (.436) have the highest averages in baseball.

Prior to the start of the hot streaks, both players were experiencing underwhelming seasons.

Turner has been fighting to stay on the field all season. He started the season on...

Yasiel Puig Suspended Two Games

As expected, Yasiel Puig has been suspended by Major League Baseball for his role in Tuesday night’s benches-clearing fight with the Giants.

The punishment will be two games due to inciting the incident with Nick Hundley. Puig will also be fined, as well as Hundley.

The fight took place in the bottom of the seventh, and essentially came out of nowhere.
