Dodgers 5, Angels 3: Have a Day, Andre Ethier

How did Mat Latos do in his Dodgers debut? Depends on how you look at such things. It’s difficult to look at “six innings, one run allowed” and not think, well, that’s pretty good, and a whole lot better than Zach Lee or Brandon Beachy or the recent parade of fill-in starters have been able to…


Dodgers 5, Mike Trout 3: Greinke Rolls Again

Another Zack Greinke start, another dominating performance, and another Dodger win. This time, he (mostly) shut down the Angels, leading to a final score of 5-3.

He gave the Dodgers seven innings of 1-run ball, and the offense produced just enough for a 3-1 Dodgers win on Wednesday afternoon in Atlanta. After two short outings in the previous two games, Bolsinger stepped up…
