Vin Scully To Miss Postseason Following Procedure

Oct 9, 2015 7:10 AM

Vin Scully will sit out the postseason as he recuperates from a medical procedure, the Los Angeles Dodgers announced Friday.

Scully, 87, was scheduled to work six innings per game on Dodgers radio broadcasts for the team's National League Division Series against the New York Mets.

The plan was for Scully to work the first three innings and the final three, with Charley Steiner and Rick Monday handling the middle innings. Scully was not scheduled to work any of the games on television.

Scully missed the Dodgers' final homestand with what the team called an illness.

The team said Scully is "resting comfortably" but did not offer any details about the nature of the procedure. Doctors advised Scully to skip the playoffs to rest.

Dodgers Clinch Third Straight Division Title

Sep 30, 2015 7:59 AM

The Los Angeles Dodgers defeated the San Francisco Giants 8-0 on Tuesday night to clinch their third straight National League West title.

Clayton Kershaw, who has struggled in the postseason, tossed a one-hitter against the rival Giants. The Dodgers will face the New York Mets in a best-of-five division series.

"I've been through it now a bunch; I think this is my fifth postseason now," Kershaw said. "I don't know if you can get wiser from failing all the time. I know what that feels like."

The Dodgers earned a third straight playoff berth for the first time in franchise history and did so by snapping a seven-game losing streak at AT&T Park this year. It's also their sixth postseason berth in 10 years.

Sep 24, 2015 7:43 AM

Greinke used that last outing as motivation in his eight-inning domination of the D-Backs on Sunday, a 4-3 Dodgers win.

Greinke pitched eight scoreless innings to lower his major league-leading ERA to 1.61.

''Just trying to get back to pitching like normal,'' Greinke said.

Dodgers Send Rubber, Dirt To Arrieta Following No-Hitter

Sep 2, 2015 3:21 PM

The Los Angeles Dodgers sent a few mementos to Jake Arrieta after he tossed a no-hitter against the club on Sunday night.

"Really nice gesture," the Chicago Cubs starter said of the Dodgers. "They sent a bucket of dirt from the mound, and they dug up the pitching rubber, which weighed 60 pounds. That's something I'll cherish as much or more than anything I've been given throughout the process."

Arrieta allowed just two baserunners, one on a walk and another on an error.

The Dodgers also sent authenticated game-used baseballs from the no-hitter, which Arrieta says he'll give out to family and friends.
