Yasiel Puig Hit Three Triples And Barely Broke A Sweat

Yasiel Puig hit three triples and a double last night and made it look pretty damned easy. He finished the night 4-5 and became the second Dodger to hit three triples in one game and the first to do it since 1901. The last guy to hit three triples in one game was Denard Span did it for the Twins in 2010. » 7/26/14 4:28pm Saturday 4:28pm

Hanley Ramirez Had A Real Shit Day At The Office Yesterday

Based on the box score from yesterday's game agains the Cardinals, it looks like Dodgers shortstop Hanley Ramirez had himself a perfectly fine game. He got on base four times in five at-bats, didn't strike out, and scored a run for his team. Lost in those numbers, though, is the fact that Ramirez twice got on base… » 7/21/14 9:46am 7/21/14 9:46am

Clayton Kershaw Was Unreal Over His 41-Inning Scoreless Streak

Until the sixth inning of last night's game against the Padres, Clayton Kershaw hadn't allowed a run since June 13. The Dodgers lefty spun one of the greatest nine-inning games ever pitched in his June 18 no-hitter against the Rockies, and then just continued to reel off scoreless gems against the Royals, Cardinals,… » 7/11/14 12:13pm 7/11/14 12:13pm

Yasiel Puig Misreads Fly Ball, Catches It Anyway, Starts Double Play

Sometimes, highlights begin with an error. Yoenis Cespedes wouldn't have made that throw if he fielded that ball correctly. But aren't highlights revered because of how those plays shouldn't be made? Isn't the impressive part that few players have the ability to recover so quickly like Cespedes did in that situation? » 7/06/14 11:04am 7/06/14 11:04am

All 15 Of Clayton Kershaw's No-Hitter Strikeout Pitches In One GIF

When Clayton Kershaw came within one error of a perfect game Wednesday night, he added "no-hitter" to a list of accolades and achievements that already included three ERA titles, two Cy Young awards, and a Triple Crown.

Clayton Kershaw's No-Hitter Was Inexpressibly Ridiculous

Clayton Kershaw is the kind of pitcher who can win two National League Cy Young awards in three years for one of the most glamorous teams in baseball and still go a little underappreciated. Maybe it's because so much of the country sleeps through so many of his starts; maybe it's because he's not the most exciting guy… » 6/19/14 11:38am 6/19/14 11:38am

Ellen Kershaw's Reaction To Her Husband's No-Hitter Was Great

One of the best things about Clayton Kershaw's dominant no-hitter is the fact that Kershaw's wife, Ellen, was there to witness the whole thing in person. The broadcast showed Ellen watching nervously from the stands throughout the night, but things really got good when her husband finally recorded the last out. » 6/19/14 10:27am 6/19/14 10:27am

Yasiel Puig Loves Playing In The Snow, Is Still A Giant Six-Year-Old

When we last checked in on Yasiel Puig's Instagram account, we found him proudly showing off all of his neat toys like a kid trying to impress the new neighbor boy. This one is mine. So is this one. Do you have this one? I got it for Christmas. Now, we find him frolicking in a patch of snow and continuing to be a… » 6/06/14 2:39pm 6/06/14 2:39pm
