Paper Planes Crash on Dodger Stadium

It was a strange night at Dodger Stadium. Never mind the Dodgers lost to the Colorado Rockies 3-0, only the fourth loss in their last 20 games. Never mind they only had four hits, their first single-digit hits over the last five games. But as the game ground to a crawl in the late innings, each pitch taking on more importance on both sides, the scene throughout the stadium began to resemble the opening scene of M.I.A.'s "Paper Planes" video.

The Dodgers Are Winners

"It's up to us today," catcher A.J. Ellis said hours before the Dodgers defeated the Colorado Rockies 6-1. The Dodgers were coming off of their most impressive victory Wednesday night in Arizona, a 7-5 14-inning victory that took over five hours to complete. It marked their first victory in 30 times they have trailed after six innings.

Live and Let Puig

There has been a lot of ridiculousness going on with Yasiel Puig lately. Puig made his debut on June 3. In 34 games he is batting .407 with an OPS of 1.101. He has eight home runs, 19 runs batted in, seven unintentional walks and five stolen bases. He batting average has never seen the south side of .400. Since he made his debut the Dodgers are 21-13, the best record in the Major Leagues in that span.

Dodgers Continue To Roll

With their 6-1 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks, the Dodgers return to one game under .500 while trailing the D-Backs by only 2 1/2 games for NL West supremacy. The last time the Dodgers were one game under .500 it was May 1 when the Dodgers lost to the Colorado Rockies 7-3 to drop their record to 13-14. Things went downhill from there until the arrival of Yasiel Puig and the return of Hanley Ramirez.

Times They Are A-Changin' for the Dodgers

Before the last homestand the Dodgers were a joke, the silly $200 million team that was one of the worst in the majors and 9 1/2 games out in one of the worst divisions in baseball.

Dodgers Prove Mortal, Can't Win Them All

At least it wasn't the 16-1 slaughter that the Dodgers endured on Friday, but the 9-5 loss against the Colorado Rockies isn't exactly a morale lifter either. Again it was Chris Capuano on the mound who only made it through 4 1/3 innings giving up six runs, five of them earned. Brandon League also made an appearance and didn't fail to disappoint giving up two earned runs in the 1/3 inning he pitched.

Dwight Howard Choo-Choo-Chooses Houston? [Updated]

For the first time in Lakers history, a free agent has opted to take less money to leave the team. Or did he?

Dodgers Continue to Amaze as They Exit the Cellar

I really try to have some perspective on things and not get caught up in the moment. But what Yasiel Puig, Hanley Ramirez and the Dodgers are doing has my jaw lying prostrate on the floor.

Chris Paul Remains a Clipper

Chris Paul's tweet this morning said it all:

Dodgers Walk Off Paved By Bullpen and Fielding Adventures

See what happens when I go to the game as a fan? The Dodgers lost to the Phillies 16-1 Friday night, their worst home loss since 1947 just months after Jackie Robinson made his debut in Brooklyn. Sanity was restored on Saturday as I returned in a professional manner, meaning I had not a drop of the Coors Light that flows aplenty at the stadium, and the Dodgers beat the Phillies 4-3.

Puig and Kemp Fuel Dodgers to Six Straight Wins

Things really are looking up for the Dodgers. Despite Zack Greinke having a subpar start, the Dodgers still managed to win their sixth straight game in a 6-4 win over the Philadelphia Phillies.

Dodgers Start the Climb Out of the Cellar

I really want to say the Dodgers have turned the corner. For starters they beat the Giants 4-2 getting the three-game sweep, the first home sweep by the Dodgers since 2009. They got yet another dominant performance by starter Clayton Kershaw marred only by a Buster Posey two-run homer in the fourth inning that gave the Giants their first lead of the series.

Dodger Bullpen Makes Fourth Straight Win Too Exciting

I don't know whether this is frightening, uplifting, depressing or hopeful. Here are two sentences Dodger manager Don Mattingly uttered before Tuesday's game against the Giants: "This is the team. Our lineup is getting pretty much at full strength."

The Clippers Have Credibility? The Clippers HAVE Credibility!

"I don't really understand what all of the fuss is about," Clippers president Andy Roeser said during the press conference. And here I thought the Clippers finally decided to be a competent NBA team.

Lakers and STAPLES Center Woo Dwight Howard

The Lakers are want Dwight Howard back. Since they are not allowed to talk to him until July 1 when free agency begins in the NBA, they've opted for billboards.

For only the second time this season, the Dodgers have won three games in a row. With the wünderkind Yasiel Puig leading the way, the Dodgers struck late for the 3-1 win over the Giants.

Doc Rivers Is the Clippers New Head Coach, Hopefully

According to multiple reports, the Boston Celtics and the Clippers have reached an agreement sending head coach Doc Rivers to the Clippers.

On the Clippers and Getting Bumped by Golf

I got bumped because of golf. I recorded a segment for this week's Going Roggin that airs on NBC4 at midnight on Sunday. But my little "Jimmy in Distress" segment got bumped because they were airing a very special episode at the conclusion of the US Open. So instead of my segment, they talked about golf.

Dodgers, D-Backs Suspensions Announced

It was as if Joe Garagiola and Joe Torre were communicating with carrier pigeons, but they finally announced the suspensions and fines for the Dodgers and Diamondbacks today for their brawl in the seventh inning on Tuesday.

Dodgers Lose to D-Backs in 12

A night after the Dodgers and Diamondbacks abused each other, the two teams took it out on the public Wednesday night. For four hours, 21 minutes the two teams tried to best one another. It took a wild 12th inning to decide things as the D-Backs took the series win with an 8-6 victory.

Fight Night at Dodger Stadium

A baseball game broke out at the fights today. So that phrase is usually reserved for hockey, but for one night it was the Dodgers and Diamondbacks who created the turn in the phrase.

Things Getting Interesting with the Dodgers

Things are getting interesting at the Ravine. Today the Dodgers recalled shortstop Justin Sellers from Triple-A Albuquerque after optioning Sunday's starter Matt Magill back to Triple-A after his emergency start. While with the Isotopes, Sellers batted .337 with a homer and 17 RBI in 24 games. With runners in scoring position he was batting .321 (9-for-28).

The Dodgers MASH Unit Continues to Ravage

This is getting ridiculous. The Dodgers have used the disabled list 19 times this season after announcing this morning that Ted Lilly was going back on it for the third time, this time with a neck strain.

Tim Leiweke Really Loves Toronto, Takes Shots at Los Angeles

Former Anschutz Entertainment Group President and CEO and current Maple Leafs Sports & Entertainment President and CEO Tim Leiweke gave an interview with Maple Leafs sideline reporter Paul Hendrick for Maple Leafs TV. Let's just say some of his comments were interesting.

Hey Puig, Yeah You

He keeps doing it. When the Dodgers need him, Yasiel Puig continues to deliver. "It just feels like something's going to happen everytime he gets up," Skip Schumaker said.

Kings Pushed to the Brink in Game 4

A hush fell on STAPLES Center early in the third period save for the Blackhawks fans who dah-dah-dah-ed to "Chelsea Dagger". Marian Hossa's laser shot got past Kings goaltender Jonathan Quick 70 seconds in the period, and the images of the season started flashing through the eyes of the 18,621 who were fans.

Yasiel Puig Continues to Marvel

A day after going 0-for-4 with two strikeouts, Yasiel Puig started his fourth day in the Majors modestly. Until the eighth inning he went 1-for-3 with a strikeout.

Padres Salvage A Game

Baseball proves over and over that we are all human and mere pawns to the game. It dictates its own terms; no human in over a century has been able to bend the game to his own will.

Kings Rebound at Home, Take Game 3

Where the hell was this Kings team in Chicago? Looking like a completely different team to the one that showed up in Chicago, the Kings kept alive hopes of a repeat with a 3-1 win in Game 3 of the Western Conference Final.

The Yasiel Puig Era for the Dodgers Begins with a Bang

The beleaguered Brandon League was on the mound in the ninth inning to close out a 2-1 ballgame to pitch to the 4-5-6 hitters of the San Diego Padres. He entered the game with a 5.31 ERA, a rather bloated ERA for a closer.

Another 2-1 Kings Loss This Postseason

For the sixth time this postseason the Kings lost on the road 2-1, this time to the Chicago Blackhawks. In fact every time the Kings have lost on the road it has been by a 2-1 margin.

Kings Get Ready for Game 1

If you thought the Kings first two playoff rounds were something, you ain't seen nothing yet. On Saturday at 2 p.m. the puck will drop in the Western Conference Final at the United Center in Chicago with the reigning Stanley Cup champions facing off against the best regular season team in the Blackhawks.

Should College Athletes Have Better Health Care? This Documentary Kickstarter Thinks So

It's one thing for me to rail against the NCAA and call them one of the shadiest cartels this side of Medellin. It's another to talk to a former "student-athlete" about what needs to be done about the system.

Dodger Stadium to Host International Soccer Exhibition

For the first time in its over 50-year history, Dodger Stadium will play host to soccer. On August 3 Dodger Stadium will be a venue for the semifinals of the inaugural Guinness International Champions Cup.

Epic Drama of Game 7 Goes the Way of the Kings

Game 7. The seconds couldn't tick down quickly enough for the Kings holding on to a slim 2-1 lead against an always dangerous San Jose Sharks team.

POV Camera: Kings-Sharks Game 7 In Case You Missed It

Former LAist contributor Eric Locko strapped a GoPro camera to his head for last night's Game 7 at STAPLES Center between the Kings and the Sharks.

Dodgers Take Advantage of Another Angels Pitching Collapse

It was a beautiful pregame ceremony at Dodger Stadium honoring those who sacrificed their lives fighting for our country on this Memorial Day. There was a moment of silence and the giant flag that covered the outfield. The highlight was astronaut Buzz Aldrin throwing the ceremonial first pitch.

Matt Kemp Reunites With Joshua Jones

Matt Kemp was obviously touched by Joshua Jones. Earlier this month as the Dodgers were getting swept by the San Francisco Giants, Kemp heard about the Tracy, Calif. 19-year old who was sticken with inoperable tumors and given only months to live. He went over to where the family was sitting, signed a ball and in an act of spontaneity gave Jones his cap, jersey and cleats.

Broken Bats, Broken Hearts for the Dodgers

After the Dodgers took Saturday's game against the St. Louis Cardinals, you figured with Clayton Kershaw pitching today they would have a good chance of winning the series against the team with the best record in the National League. But bloop hits and broken bats broke some hearts as the Cardinals got the 5-3 victory.

Dodgers Go Station To Station, Can't Come Home

In the second inning of the Dodgers 9-2 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers on Wednesday, the Dodgers scored five runs. Five runs in one inning! That certainly is a miracle of sorts.

No Extra Base Hits? The Dodgers Hit Five in Victory.

It really does feel nice when the world just falls perfectly in place. I came to the park on Saturday wanting to address the Dodgers chronic inability to get an extra-base hit as a big reason why they can't score runs.

Don Mattingly Still Managing, Dodgers Shutout by Cardinals

"I expect Donnie to be here a long time," Dodgers president Stan Kasten told us unsavory media folk. Rumors have been spreading like wildfire about at which inning manager Don Mattingly will be fired tonight. It turned out that Mattingly managed the entire game as the Dodgers were shutout 7-0 by the St. Louis Cardinals. The press clippings went past the point of bemusement for Kasten to just sheer hilarity. Kasten decided to set the record straight.

Kings Reanimated in Game 5 Win

For the first 38 minutes of the game, the standing-room only crowd of 18,584 in addition to the countless people watching on television looked like they would all have to go to the pharmacy to pick up some Preparation H. Which is a fancy way of saying that the game was tight and tense. Every rush and scoring chance elicited a response from the crowd.

Kings Guest Tweeter Tweets a Rape Joke

The Kings just found out about the hazards of allowing guests to use their official Twitter account. Kevin of the "Kevin & Bean Show" fame tweeted this out during the second period:

Kings' Slow Start Dooms Them

The Kings are in trouble. A third period rally was a case of too little too late as the Kings took a 2-1 loss to the San Jose Sharks. Their series is now tied at two games apiece.

Will the Dodgers Oust Manager Don Mattingly?

Tick. Tock. Tick. Tock. The clock keeps ticking down the games of Don Mattingly's tenure as manager of the Dodgers. Since the sweep at the hands of the Atlanta Braves was completed on Sunday, the fans have turned into a collective Salome demanding his head on a silver platter. Even winning two of three against the Milwaukee Brewers can't save him from the mob.

Clippers Heave Head Coach Vinny Del Negro

It has come to pass. The Clippers will not be renewing head coach Vinny Del Negro's contract when it expires on June 30.

Penultimate Minute Comeback For Kings Was Ultimate

"It's not been a good day," Kings head coach Darryl Sutter opened his postgame press conference. He lost his reading glasses and paid $79 for a pair of reading glasses knowing that he could have gotten three for $20 from Costco.

Greinke's Return Sparks Optimism for the Dodgers

It's one of the few times this season the Dodgers impressed me. They beat the Washington Nationals 3-1 winning the series and winning four of their last five games. It looks like things are looking up especially with the return of Zack Greinke.

Quick Helps the Kings Get the First Bite on the Sharks

The words "Jonathan Quick" should have the remaining eight teams shaking in their skates. Quick made 35 saves in his franchise record sixth career playoff shutout as the Kings took Game 1 2-0 over the San Jose Sharks.

It's Back to the 'L' Column for the Dodgers

The Dodgers won two straight games over the weekend which is quite a feat considering they were coming off of an eight-game losing streak. I know I brushed aside their victory on Saturday, but then I started wondering if maybe the taste of victory could cleanse the psyche that was tainted with all the losses.

The Dodgers Win a Ballgame

It certainly was an exercise of contrasts when after watching the Kings clinch their first round playoff series against the St. Louis Blues last night, I come over to watch the Dodgers tangle with the Miami Marlins tonight. On one night I watch hockey at its finest. The next night? Well, it was a Marlins-Dodgers game.

The Four Seconds In the Kings Series Win Against the Blues

It was four seconds that ended the series. After the Blues tried to clear the puck out of their zone, the puck found Dustin Penner in the center faceoff circle. Penner circled back bringing the puck down the left wing. He started coiling up for the slap shot with 1.2 seconds left right as he crossed the blue line. "I got all 240 pounds behind that one," Penner remarked.

Every Day Is Exactly The Same for the Dodgers

I knew the Dodgers would have some troubles this season despite their big payroll, but I didn't think it would get this bad. Three errors and the lethal Paul Goldschmidt kept the Dodgers freefalling as the Arizona Diamondbacks handed the Dodgers a 3-2 loss.

Dodgers Lose Sixth in a Row, Again

The Dodgers continue to plummet in the standings losing their sixth consecutive game, a 5-3 loss to the Arizona Diamondbacks. The two big problems continue to plague the team as each loss piles onto another loss: lack of power and the bullpen.

Teen Who Scored Matt Kemp's Cleats Has 90 Days To Live

With the Dodgers mired in a horrendous start to the season, it's easy to pile on. But for one moment there has been an oasis of hope.

Kings Rally Back To Even Series

With scores of 2-1, 2-1 and 1-0, no one would have thought Game 4 between the Kings and the St. Louis Blues would see a bevy of goals being scored. But that's what happened. After falling into an early 2-0 deficit, the Kings rallied back to win 4-3 and evened up the series as it heads back to St. Louis.

Are the Gray Skies Going To Clear Up for the Dodgers? Not Tonight

I've used the song from Bye Bye Birdie "Put On a Happy Face" to talk about the Dodgers before. It seems appropriate with the gray clouds covering Dodger Stadium after the team got swept by the San Francisco Giants over the weekend. The Dodgers have put on a happy face led by manager Don Mattingly who reiterated his optimism after the sweep in San Francisco.

It's Official: Dodger Stadium Will Host an NHL Game

We've hinted about it back in March. We reported about the rumors last month. Today the NHL made it official: the Kings and the Ducks will play a regular season game at Dodger Stadium on Jan. 25, 2014 as a part of the 2014 Coors Light NHL Stadium Series.

Kings Grit Their Way Back Into the Series

It wasn't pretty by any means, but the Kings announced their presence in the series. Thanks to a gritty goal by Slava Voynov in the second period, the Kings got the 1-0 victory after losing two disappointing games in St. Louis.

The Night Lob City Died

The Laker haters in town climbed aboard the Clipper bandwagon, and it got them to the same place: a first-round exit. Sure the Clippers might have been really exciting during the season. They might have won a franchise-record 17 consecutive games. They might have seemed more functional and exciting than the Lakers. But after the Clippers lost 118-105 in Game 6, "Lob City" is as dead as the Lakers.

The Dwight Howard Double Standard

Chris Paul was ejected with 2:29 remaining in the Clippers elimination game, the game out of hand. Dwight Howard was ejected early in the third quarter of his elimination game with the Lakers, their game also out of hand. So why hasn't there been the same amount of outrage against Paul as there was to Howard?

Not So Quick...

Anyone who watched the Kings Stanley Cup run last season would have been shocked after watching last night's 2-1 overtime loss to the St. Louis Blues. The Kings, save for Jonathan Quick, were nonexistent through 59 minutes. Quick made 35 saves through regulation as he held the Blues to a 1-0 lead, the one goal coming in the first period by Alexander Steen on a power play thanks to the Kings too-many-man-on-the-ice penalty.

Sometimes Baseball Isn't Pretty

If you want to know why some people hate baseball look no farther than this game.

Ryu Overpowers the Rockies, PSY and Hanley

It wasn't all smiles and roses in the Dodgers 6-2 win over the Colorado Rockies. Ask PSY. It really is a sad world he is inhabiting right now. A year after his "Gangnam Style" took over the world he's not getting the same amount of love for his new single "Gentleman". It was bad enough that he was overtaken in the Korean pop charts by the 63-year old Cho Yong-Pil last week. But on the day he came to Dodger Stadium to help renew his PSY-mania, he got upstaged by his fellow countryman Ryu Hyun-Jin.

It Was So Ugly At Dodger Stadium...

"Let's go Skip! Let's go Skip," went the chants at Dodger Stadium in the top of the ninth inning which should tell you about all you need to know about the Dodgers 12-2 loss to the Colorado Rockies Monday night.

Gay Athlete Comes Out: It Actually Happened

We have an active gay athlete in a major North American sport. Jason Collins, 34-year-old center recently of the Washington Wizards, has come out. Holy shit.

Kings Finish Strong, Head to St. Louis

When the schedule came out, this final game against San Jose stuck out like a sore thumb. There was a feeling the two teams would be fighting for something. The something turned out to be a fight for the five-seed and the opportunity to open in St. Louis. The loser will open in Vancouver.

Kershaw Fans 12 and Crawford Hits 2 Home Runs

I don't know what was the bigger Dodger story today in their 2-0 shutout win of the Milwaukee Brewers. The win returned them to .500 as they won their second consecutive series and third overall this season

Fred Roggin Took My Cherry

Sure this is a cheeky headline and all, but it's perhaps the best metaphor about my experience last night at the taping of "Going Roggin."

Dodgers Reach .500

It turned out to be home sweet home for the Dodgers as they opened their six-game homestand with a 7-5 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers. The Dodgers are officially a mediocre team with an 11-11 record.

Lakers Suffer Worst Home Playoff Loss

The Lakers flagship radio station was especially funny. Knowing that the team would essentially have to start Andrew Goudelock, the newly minted D-League MVP, and Darius Morris in their backcourt, they were trying to pump up hope that the Lakers could pull this game out.

Clippers Fourth Quarter Woes Cost Them Game 4

When news broke on Friday that Oklahoma City Thunder point guard Russell Westbrook had surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his knee, there were some murmurs when talking about the Clippers. Depending on how long Westbrook would be out, the Clippers have a possibility of facing Miami in the NBA Finals.

Kings Lose Their Captain and the Game Against Red Wings

The NHL suspended Kings captain Dustin Brown for his elbow to Jason Pominville in the second period. NHL discipline czar Brendan Shanahan with the video explanation:

Dodgers Start Well But End Disastrously Against Mets

Never would I have thought that today's match up in the Dodgers 7-3 loss to the Mets would go the way it did. The Dodgers had 37-year old Ted Lilly making his first start since last May having been stitched together after injuries held him back last season. Meanwhile the Mets had the 24-year old firethrower Matt Harvey whose best piece of brilliance is the fact the he has the same birthday as mine.

Lakers Just Aren't Good Enough

If the Lakers had Kobe Bryant, maybe this series would turn out differently. But they don't, and here the Lakers are down 2-0 to the San Antonio Spurs in the first round after their 102-91 loss.

Dodgers Inch Closer to Mediocrity

Day games usually mean more offense, but the New York Mets and the Dodgers love to buck the trend. The Dodgers ended up holding on for a 3-2 win to take the two of three games in the series in their long standing quest towards mediocrity — they are now 10-11 in the season.

Dodgers Win, But Not All Is Well

Earlier in the afternoon, the Dodgers announced that Chad Billingsley would have Tommy John surgery on his right elbow after all. When Billingsley first went on the disabled list in August with pain in his right elbow, there was talk about him having the surgery.

Minnesota Gets Wild on the Kings

With the Anaheim Ducks clinching the two-seed with their 3-0 victory over the Edmonton Oilers last night, the best seed the Kings could hope for was a four-seed. In order for that to happen the Kings would have to beat the Minnesota Wild in any fashion, St. Louis loses in any fashion to Colorado and San Jose loses in regulation to Dallas. It turned out none of that mattered.

Chris Paul Heroics Gives Clippers 2-0 Advantage

The Clippers have Chris Paul, the Memphis Grizzlies don't. Chris Paul hit a shot with hands all over him with 0.1 seconds remaining in the game to give the Clippers the 93-91 win for a 2-0 series lead.

Dodgers Get a Much Needed Win in Baltimore

They paid through the roof for a roster that looked to be top of the line. Yet after a first few weeks, it's clear money can't buy rings. This time I'm not talking about the Lakers.

Kings Show Playoff Mettle In Win Over the Stars

The Kings could have scowled and just taken the loss. What the hell did it matter? They've already clinched a playoff spot. Besides the Kings have had problems with the Dallas Stars this season having only won once in the four games so far this season. But the Kings paid no mind to a couple of crucial calls (and non-calls) that went against them coming back in overtime to defeat the Stars 4-3.

Clippers Take Game 1 Against Memphis

There's no question about it: the Clippers and the Memphis Grizzlies first round playoff series will be the meat tenderizer series of the playoffs. In Game 1 things looked like a set of a gay porn shoot with the sweaty bodies collapsing all over the floor, limbs hanging on limbs. Last season the Clippers overcame a 27 point deficit in the second half to steal Game 1 in Memphis en route to a Game 7 win of the series.

Turnovers Give Spurs the Game 1 Victory Over Lakers

Laker fans seemed awfully confident that the Lakers could upset the Spurs in the first round. I wonder how they feel after the Spurs took Game 1 91-79.

Kings Escape the Dodgers Curse

I saw Tommy Lasorda waddling around the Chick Hearn Press Room where they feed the media at STAPLES Center tonight. I wasn't certain, but he seemed to be coming from the vicinity of the bathrooms. I made a mental note of using the bathrooms in the upstairs hockey press box. I've been around Dodger Stadium enough to know better.

Hello Kitty Couldn't Save the Dodgers

Not even Hello Kitty could salvage this mess. With a 7-2 loss to the San Diego Padres the Dodgers fall to 7-8 and just got swept by a team that entered the series with a 2-10 record.

It's Playoff Time for the Lakers and Clippers

It's a bit difficult writing about a game that you're not attending, especially when the venue where you're covering a different game in a different sport has internet connectivity issues even though it went through a much-publicized $100 million makeover.

It Was A Blue Monday

The normal blue sunny skies that give Dodger Stadium its almost supernatural glow were instead dark and gray today. After the tragedy in Boston it's hard to think about baseball, but here it was with the Dodgers losing to the Padres 6-3.

Kings Keep Winning Despite Underwhelming Second Period

In the last Kings game, they came out strong against the Colorado Avalanche in the first period outshooting them 15-4. It all went downhill after that. The Avalanche tied the game up in the third period, and the Kings had to sweat it out in the shootout before they got the victory.

Kings Remain a Mystery

I seriously wonder about the Kings. There are times when I think they have a great chance to repeat as Stanley Cup Champions. Take the first period of their 3-2 shootout victory over the Colorado Avalanche.

LAst Night's Action: Crazy Dodgers-Padres Rumble In San Diego

As we say in media circles, sh*t just got real. In the bottom of the sixth inning, Zack Greinke hit Carlos Quentin with a pitch. A brawl erupted.

LAst Night's Action: Lakers Take One Game Lead Over Utah

Dodger Bats Come to Life in Sweep of Pirates

We're a week into the Dodger season, and the Dodgers need to be thankful to whomever they bribed to get the Pittsburgh Pirates on the schedule in the first week. With a 6-2 win on Sunday, the Dodgers swept the series and have a respectable 4-2 record.
