  2. Clayton Kershaw fills leadership void

    Mark Saxon

  4. Dodgers continue their crawl to October

    Mark Saxon

    This NL West race has yet to follow a predictable pattern, so this looks like a bad time for the Dodgers to begin to feel comfortable. They've got the weight of momentum behind them, having just won seven of the 10 games on a challenging East Coas...

  13. LAA vs. LAD: Perseverance vs. momentum

    Mark Saxon

    The Angels' three yearly games at Dodger Stadium are among my favorite days of the season, and not just because I can go door-to-door from my house about an hour faster than I reach Angel Stadium. Like all the good regional interleague rivalries, ...
