  • Chase Utley #26 of the Los Angeles Dodgers

"It was a game that taught me the importance of your command".

The Dodgers entered Sunday's series finale against the Mets with a run differential of +196 (best in baseball), a team ERA of 3.09 (best in baseball) and a +32 mark in the category, "Defensive Runs Saved", which now ranks third in baseball. On Saturday, L.A. became the first club since the 1912 New York Giants (105 years!) to post a mark of 43-7 or better during a 50-game stretch of contests.

Manager Dave Roberts is having the best second season of any manager in recent memory, but his job now is to punctuate a superb regular season with at least a pennant-something the Dodgers haven't won since 1988-and a World Series win.

Ryu has gone just 4-6 in 16 starts this year, but the fact remains that he is starting to look more like the pitcher he was when he debuted in 2013.

Teen left bleeding after vicious 'sea flea' attack
Experts have confirmed that yes, it could have been an onslaught of sea lice, but a full investigation is yet to be conducted. At first, Jarrod said hospital staff were at a loss with what had happened when they first arrived.

That theme was echoed this weekend by various players. They have lost six of seven, matching a season low at 10 games under.500. "You could say that's probably the turning point of the game". "Yeah, I started back in "26 with Murderers" Row". Dodgers C Yasmani Grandal (back) didn't play.

Ryu, who the Mets could barely touch all evening. There's a new front office and a new manager. "That way, the "knockout" victor would have to win at least twice on the field of the team with the best record, plus its own home game". Now with 32 home runs, Bellinger has the the fifth-most homers in franchise history through 111 team games and is sixth among all-time NL rookies. Following a double steal by Justin Turner and Cody Bellinger with two outs, Logan Forsythe hit a single to bring home both runners in the first inning. He settled down after that, pitching five innings and finishing with eight strikeouts.

"It doesn't really matter", Turner remembered as the group response. "Hanging in there shows the resiliency of this team and how everyone goes about their business".

Nationals 9, Cubs 4: Matt Wieters hit a tiebreaking grand slam as Washington scored five runs in the eighth inning and beat Chicago. His third time through the order was not so successful. Chris Taylor added an RBI triple in the ninth. Sometimes there's a lot of pressure so you have to focus even more.

The Dodgers will be off on Monday as they travel to Phoenix where they will face the Diamondbacks on Tuesday night.

He's also on pace to be the first player with 40 home runs at age-21 or younger season since Eddie Mathews did it in 1953. Here's Rose, waiting to call the game's first pitch.and waiting.and waiting some more, for the "network stooge" to give the okay to begin play. He had a 2.12 ERA after his first five outings, but it's 11.06 in the last six. Everyone keeps waiting for the league to catch up to them, but it hasn't happened. Plus, this is a smart kid.

Ryu said he had a good command of his pitches. It is now evident this is not their season to be, it appeared that way since the month of May. This versatility has helped give the Dodgers some wonderful depth. His ERA for the season went up to 5.77. Taylor and Bellinger have been mashing. In addition, Ryu threw scoreless innings for his second consecutive game, totaling 15 scoreless innings including the game against the Minnesota Twins on July 25. The bullpen has the second-best ERA in baseball. That's not the goal.

The Dodgers' sweep of the Mets exemplified their unprecedented power surge.
