Adrian Gonzalez went 2-for-2 with a homer and drove home three runs on Sunday as the Dodgers topped the Rockies 10-5 in their regular season finale.

The three RBI give Gonzalez a grand total of 116 on the season, more than anyone else in Major League Baseball. He has been an outstanding run producer in the middle of the Dodgers lineup this season, hitting .276/.335/.482 with 27 home runs and the aforementioned 116 RBI.
Sep 28 - 8:20 PM

Matt Kemp blasted his 25th home run on Sunday, helping to power the Dodgers to a victory over the Rockies in their regular season finale.

Kemp finished the afternoon 2-for-2, including the two-run blast off Christian Bergman in the first inning. He has been scorching hot in the second half of the season, hitting .309 with 17 homers and 54 RBI in his final 64 contests.
Sep 28 - 8:17 PM

Zack Greinke looked sharp in his final regular season tune-up on Sunday, hurling five innings of one-run ball in a victory over the Rockies.

Greinke scattered just four hits and a walk while punching out six on the afternoon. He concludes another terrific regular season with a 17-8 record, 2.71 ERA, 1.15 WHIP and 207/43 K/BB ratio in 202 1/3 innings.

Hyun-Jin Ryu (shoulder) said he felt fine during a bullpen session Sunday.

It's his first full-effort 'pen session since being sidelined earlier this month with left shoulder irritation. The Dodgers haven't announced any future plans for Ryu, but he's trending towards being available for the NLDS.
Sep 28 - 2:34 PM

Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said Sunday that he expected Dee Gordon (hip) to be ready to play on Friday in Game 1 of the NLDS.

Gordon exited Saturday's game and is sitting out Sunday due to a right hip injury. He underwent a precautionary MRI, but the ailment appears to be minor.
Sep 28 - 2:09 PM

Hanley Ramirez will not be in the Dodgers' lineup Sunday.

Ramirez exited Saturday's game after fouling a pitch off his left leg. Manager Don Mattingly said the shortstop is not injured, but he'll go ahead and give him some extra rest before the start of the NLDS on Friday.
Sep 28 - 8:57 AM

Dee Gordon underwent an MRI on his right hip after leaving Saturday's game.

Gordon won't play Sunday but says he's not concerned about the hip over the long haul. It's an ailment that he's dealt with before and is evidently minor.
Sep 28 - 8:54 AM

Scott Van Slyke scored the winning run on a wild pitch in the 12th as the Dodgers edged the Rockies 6-5 on Saturday.

Van Slyke singled off Franklin Morales with one out, advanced to second when Tim Federowicz was hit by a pitch, stole third and then scored on the wild pitch. The steal was his second of the night, as he doubled his season total from two to four. It was only appropriate, since he entered the game initially as a pinch-runner for Adrian Gonzalez in the third.
Sep 28 - 1:42 AM

Dan Haren allowed two runs in five innings Sunday against the Rockies.

Haren left with a three-run lead, but the bullpen couldn't make it stand up on a night in which Kenley Jansen was unavailable. Haren ends the year 13-11 with a 4.02 ERA and a 145/36 K/BB ratio in 186 innings. He'll be one of the Dodgers' starters in the NLDS.
Sep 28 - 1:40 AM

Dee Gordon left Saturday's game against the Rockies due to irritation in his right hip.

Gordon had a similar injury earlier this season and missed three games. He was replaced at second base Saturday by Darwin Barney. The Dodgers begin NLDS play next Friday, so Gordon has time to heal.
Sep 27 - 10:46 PM

Dee Gordon departed Saturday's game versus the Rockies with an apparent leg injury.

Gordon may have tweaked something on a first-inning groundout. Darwin Barney replaced him at second base. This is bad timing for the NL West-champion Dodgers.
Sep 27 - 9:29 PM

Hyun-Jin Ryu (shoulder) will throw a full-effort bullpen session on Sunday afternoon.

Ryu made it through a 20-25 pitch mound workout on Friday with no issues. He has been sidelined since September 13 with lingering shoulder irritation but should become available at some point during the playoffs.
Sep 27 - 6:27 PM

Dee Gordon went 3-for-4 with two doubles and two runs scored as the Dodgers beat the Rockies 7-4 on Friday.

No steals for Gordon, but two doubles is nice; he entered with just 22 in 604 at-bats this season. He was also in an 0-for-14 slump headed into this one.
Sep 27 - 2:10 AM

Roberto Hernandez yielded three runs in 5 2/3 innings Friday in a no-decision against the Rockies.

Hernandez allowed six hits, walked four and struck out three. The Dodgers would certainly prefer to avoid starting him in the NLDS, but that could hinge on Hyun-Jin Ryu's health. Hernandez ended the regular season 8-11 with a 4.10 ERA in 29 starts and three relief appearances. A free agent at season's end, he'll likely be some other team's fifth starter next year.
Sep 27 - 2:09 AM

Hyun-Jun Ryu (shoulder) threw 20-25 pitches in a successful bullpen session on Friday.

While he won't return before the end of the regular season, this is a very encouraging sign for the Dodgers as they head into the postseason. More should be known on his status on Saturday after seeing how he responds after this session.
