World Series: Bullpen issues could surface for Los Angeles Dodgers in Game 4

World Series: Bullpen issues could surface for Los Angeles Dodgers in Game 4

Sports
HOUSTON -- After burning through eight relief pitchers in Game 2 and sending five more to the mound on Friday night at Minute Maid Park in Game 3 of the World Series, Los Angeles manager Dave Roberts faced the inevitable questions regarding the state of his bullpen after a 5-3 loss dropped the Dodgers into a 2-1 hole against the Houston Astros. With left-hander Alex Wood scheduled to get the start on Saturday, the concerns are valid. Wood has made just one start this postseason, allowing three runs and four hits with seven strikeouts in 4 2/3 innings of Game 4 in the National League Championship Series against the Chicago Cubs. The Dodgers dropped that game 3-2, their lone loss of that series. Excluding right-hander Kenta Maeda, who worked 2 2/3 scoreless innings in Game 3, Roberts declare...

NLCS: Justin Turner blasts Los Angeles Dodgers past Chicago Cubs

Sports
LOS ANGELES -- With Hollywood as its neighbor, Los Angeles is no stranger to dramatic endings. And with his game-winning, three-run home run in the bottom of the ninth inning of Game 2 of the National League Championship Series against the Chicago Cubs on Sunday, Los Angeles Dodgers third baseman Justin Turner certainly attained movie star status. The 4-1 victory gave the Dodgers a 2-0 lead in the best-of-seven series and plenty of momentum heading to Chicago for Game 3 on Tuesday. Before Turner's heroics, the game was a battle of bullpens. One night after taking out ace Clayton Kershaw after five innings, Dodgers manager Dave Roberts did the same with Rich Hill, even though Hill had allowed just one run. The move paid off -- again -- as four Dodgers relievers were nearly perfect over four...

Jared Goff, Todd Gurley help lift Los Angeles Rams to wild win over San Francisco 49ers

SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- Jared Goff passed for 292 yards and a career-high-tying three touchdowns, and Todd Gurley II scored three TDs as the Los Angeles Rams held on for a wild 41-39 victory against the San Francisco 49ers on Thursday night at Levi's Stadium. The Rams (2-1) ended a three-game losing streak to the 49ers (0-3), who remained winless under new coach Kyle Shanahan. San Francisco trailed 41-26 late in the fourth quarter, but two touchdowns cut the deficit. Running back Carlos Hyde's 1-yard run pulled the 49ers within 41-39 with 2:13 to go, but the two-point try failed when nose tackle Michael Brockers intercepted Hoyer's deflected pass intended for wide receiver Trent Taylor. Gurley rushed for 113 yards and two touchdowns on 28 carries, and he caught five passes for 36 yards and ...
