  2. Giants rivalry gets a jolt after the break

    Mark Saxon

    Mark Saxon

  7. Rapid Reaction: Dodgers 2, Padres 1

    Mark Saxon

  12. Stock watch: Starters in cruise control

    Mark Saxon

    RISING Control: Dodgers starting pitchers aren't infallible, but you've got to do something impressive to beat them most of the time. That's a pretty serious head start and part of the reason why the Dodgers have easily the best rotation in the Na...

  13. Haren, Dodgers continue controlling ways

    Mark Saxon

    LOS ANGELES -- The last time a Los Angeles Dodgers starting pitcher walked more than two batters in a game, Josh Beckett did a nice job of making up for his relative wildness. He didn't allow a hit. So, if you're looking for a way to encapsulate t...

    Mark Saxon
