Baez's struggles tough on Dodgers' bullpen

September 20, 2017

Manager Dave Roberts gave Baez a 36-pitch rope to show his slump was over, but a bases-loaded walk was followed by Rhys Hoskins‘ 10-pitch bases-clearing double, exposing Baez’s one-pitch arsenal and leaving Roberts waffling on whether the right-hander, a postseason participant the past four Octobers, will be one this time.

Kershaw disappointed after allowing first slam

September 19, 2017

In the fourth start of his return from a lower back strain, Kershaw allowed the first grand slam of his career, erasing a two-run lead in an eventual 4-3 loss to the last-place Phillies. He wasn’t even satisfied with his five scoreless innings to open the game, much less the rocky sixth. “No progress,” Kershaw said bluntly. “We had the lead, I blew it and we lost. Not a lot…

Dodgers open with back-to-back HRs in Philly

September 19, 2017

Taylor’s wind-blown home run caromed off the metal guardrail in front of the center-field bleachers and took a fortuitous bounce toward left field. Running hard all the way — “I thought it was going to be a deep flyout, I thought I got under it too much,” he said — Taylor stepped on second as the ball first bounced on the outfield grass after the crazy carom. Taylor circled the…
