Since the MLB All-Star Break, the Giants are a Major League worst 22-38, a winning percentage that would equal 103 losses if extrapolated out over an entire season.
Major League Baseball in September is an odd time of year. A handful of teams are competing for playoff berths. Most teams are wrapping up another disappointing year. But every team hazes their rookies.
Watch as Andrew Toles launches an opposite field blast to give the Los Angeles Dodgers the lead in the ninth inning.
In what is being described as a mutual agreement between the Los Angeles Dodgers and Don Mattingly, the two will part ways, following another lackluster post-season run.
When your roster costs you a cool $300 Million each year, fans expect deep playoff runs and World Series Titles; but instead the Los Angeles Dodgers are literally turning into baseball’s version of the Cincinnati Bengals. When the dust settled on Thursday night, it was the New York Mets advancing to the 2015 NLCS, and the Dodgers with yet another early exit.
With the season on the line, the Los Angeles Dodgers turned to their ace (well, one of them). Clayton Kershaw, the pitcher who has dominated the regular season over the past few seasons, has seen his share of struggles in the postseason. Prior to last night’s win against the New York Mets, Kershaw had lost his last 5 post-season starts, registering an ERA nearly 3x his regular season average.
Clayton Kershaw has two Cy Young Awards by age 25 and one runner-up finish. He just posted baseball’s lowest ERA in 13 years and became the third pitcher since 1900 to lead the majors in that category for three consecutive seasons.
Uribe hit a go-ahead, two-run homer in the eighth inning after Clayton Kershaw started on short rest Monday night for the Dodgers in a 4-3 victory over the Atlanta Braves that sent Los Angeles into the National League Championship Series.
Diamondbacks president and CEO Derrick Hall said in a statement to the Arizona Republic, “I could call it disrespectful and classless, but they don’t have a beautiful pool at their old park and must have really wanted to see what one was like.”
