    OS ANGELES -- The Dodgers are ready for their World Series rematch with the Astros. The Dodgers flexed their muscle in Thursday's 21-5 win over the contending Brewers, securing a series split behind seven home runs from five players and six solid innings from Clayton Kershaw. The Dodgers scored a season-high nine runs in the seventh; the 21 total runs are the franchise's most since July 21, 2001, in Colorado and the most ever at Dodger Stadium. Joc Pederson started the night with a leadoff homer and left the yard again in the seventh, Cody Bellinger broke the game open...

    MLB Trade Rumors ^ | July 18, 2018 | Kyle Downing and Steve Adams
    After a small medical holdup involving one of the prospects coming back, the Dodgers have acquired All-Star shortstop Manny Machado from the Orioles. Outfielder Yusniel Diaz is the key piece headed back to Baltimore in the deal. They’ll also receive minor-league right-handers Dean Kremer and Zach Pop, along with infielders Rylan Bannon and Breyvic Valera. The Dodgers will take on the entirety of Machado’s remaining 2018 salary, which checks in at about $6.3MM. Since starting out the year with an 8-20 record, it’s been all but certain that the Orioles would deal the impending free agent in exchange for more...

    Vice Sports ^ | 04/25/2016 | David Davis
    Forty years ago, a man and a child tried to burn a flag on the field at Dodger Stadium, and were thwarted by an ex-Marine outfielder. It's not as simple as it looks. On April 25, 1976, on a hazy Sunday afternoon, the Los Angeles Dodgers and Chicago Cubs were playing the final game of a meaningless early-season series at Dodger Stadium when, quite suddenly, one person and then another ran onto the field. It was the bottom of the fourth inning, and Ted Sizemore was at bat. Cubs centerfielder Rick Monday had experience dealing with streakers, drunks, and other...

    Wally Moon, the wiry outfielder with the old-school crew cut who helped take the Dodgers to the World Series three times and became a crowd favorite for his towering “Moon shots,” has died. Moon, who became part of the Dodger’s lineup shortly after the team moved west from Brooklyn, died Friday in Bryan, Texas. He was 87.

    NYT ^ | 10/25/17 | BENJAMIN HOFFMAN and DAVID WALDSTEIN
    The Houston Astros refused to quit in Game 2 of the World Series, repeatedly rallying and scoring six runs from the eighth inning forward in a wild, 7-6 extra-innings victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers that evened the World Series at one game apiece. The heroes were plentiful for the Astros, with Marwin Gonzalez homering to tie the game in the 9th, Jose Altuve and Carlos Correa hitting solo home runs in the 10th to put Houston ahead briefly, and George Springer hitting a two-run homer in the 11th that put them on top to stay. The Dodgers counterpunched with...

    Before stepping into Dodger Stadium this week, Norman Lloyd had attended one World Series. In 1926. As a 12-year-old boy at Yankee Stadium, he watched as Babe Ruth slid into second base and split his pants. Now, a mere 91 years later, the actor — known as the rigid headmaster who fired Robin Williams in “Dead Poets Society” and the villain who fell from the Statue of Liberty in Alfred Hitchcock’s “Saboteur" — returned to the Fall Classic to watch a series between the Dodgers and Houston Astros that already has the makings of a Hollywood drama.

    CHICAGO (AP) — Enrique Hernandez put a Hollywood ending on an LA story three decades in the making. Fueled by Hernandez's home run trilogy, Clayton Kershaw and the Los Angeles Dodgers are finally going to the World Series. Hernandez homered three times and drove in seven runs, Kershaw breezed through six crisp innings and Los Angeles ended the Chicago Cubs' title defense with an 11-1 victory in Game 5 of the NL Championship Series on Thursday night.

    Charlie Culberson tried to score from second on a single by Justin Turner and was initially called out by umpire Mike Winters for not touching home plate after evading Willson Contreras' tag. The Dodgers challenged the call, and after a video review, it was determined that Contreras blocked the plate before he received the ball. The interpretation of the rule infuriated Maddon. The Dodgers challenged on the grounds Contreras broke rule 7.13, which states "unless the catcher is in possession of the ball, the catcher cannot block the pathway of the runner as he is attempting to score. If, in...
