Andre Ethier hit a walk-off home run to cap Sunday's 5-3, 10-inning win over the Angels.

Ethier homered twice in the game. The first--a solo shot in the eighth inning--gave the Dodgers a 3-2 lead. They would squander this advantage, though, which just offered Ethier another chance to shine. In the bottom of the 10th inning, he delivered again with a two-run homer, and this time, the Angels would not have an opportunity to respond. The veteran outfielder is slashing .280/.362/.480 with 12 homers and 37 RBI in 271 at-bats.

Mat Latos pitched well in his first start for the Dodgers on Sunday, holding the Angels to one run on four hits over six innings in a no-decision before his teammates came through for a 5-3 win in 10 innings.

Latos has to feel like he won the lottery, as he moved from one of the worst teams in the majors to one of the best. Against the Angels on Sunday, he struck out one and walked one. Albert Pujols drove in a run on a grounder in the sixth inning, but Latos otherwise kept the Angels off the scoreboard. After returning from a knee injury in mid-June, he's pitched very well across 51 2/3 innings, boasting a sub-3.00 ERA and a 44/10 K/BB ratio. A road showdown with the Pirates is up next on Latos' shiny, new schedule.

Dodgers SS prospect Corey Seager recorded four hits in Saturday's win for Triple-A Oklahoma City.

It was Seager's first four-hit game since May 28. He entered Saturday's game in a 4-for-33 slump and has only hit .241 in 79 at-bats since July 1. Seager remains a fascinating prospect and should arrive in the majors no later than 2016.

Dodgers LHP prospect Julio Urias didn't allow a hit in 5 1/3 innings Saturday for Double-A Tulsa.

Urias gave up four walks, which led to two runs for Arkansas. Even though he lost, it was still an impressive outing for Urias, who has limited opponents to a .199 average in 12 starts this season. The 18-year-old missed two months earlier this year after undergoing cosmetic eye surgery but it shouldn't affect him going forward.

Yasiel Puig is not in the Dodgers' lineup Sunday.

He's just getting a day off. Andre Ethier has shifted over to right field in Puig's place, while Carl Crawford is getting a start in left.
Aug 2 - 12:51 PM

Dodgers optioned RHP Yimi Garcia to Triple-A Oklahoma City.

He's making room for Mat Latos on the roster. Garcia was scored upon in four out of his last five appearances.
Aug 2 - 12:40 PM

Clayton Kershaw (hip) limited the Angels to just two hits over eight scoreless innings in Saturday's 3-1 victory.

Kershaw had his start pushed back a couple times due to a hip issue, but it obviously didn't affect him on Saturday. The left-hander struck out seven and walked only one on the day, throwing 115 pitches. Kershaw hasn't allowed a single run and sports an absurd 45/1 K/BB ratio over his last four outings. He'll try to extend his 37-inning scoreless streak next weekend in Pittsburgh.
Aug 2 - 8:40 AM

Joc Pederson remains out of the Dodgers lineup on Saturday.

The young outfielder has been in a massive slump at the plate, so skipper Don Mattingly wanted to give him a few days to clear his head. Pederson hit an atrocious .169/.229/.258 with one home run, five RBI and a 31/4 K/BB ratio in the month of July.

Dodgers sent RHP Chin-Hui Tsao outright to Triple-A Oklahoma City.

The 34-year-oldwas designated for assignment on Thursday. He passed through waivers unclaimed and will continue to function as organizational bullpen depth for the Dodgers.
Aug 1 - 9:42 AM

Scott Van Slyke (neck) returned to the Dodgers starting lineup on Friday, going 1-for-4 with a double in a victory over the Angels.

Van Slyke hurt his neck in a cap ride in New York on Saturday and had only appeared as a pinch hitter since. He should be fine moving forward.
Aug 1 - 8:39 AM

Zack Greinke pitched eight innings of two-run ball to beat the Angels on Friday.

Greinke gave up runs for the second straight outing, but it wasn't really so bad. He allowed five hits, walked one and struck out eight in improving to 10-2. His ERA jumped from 1.37 to 1.41.
Aug 1 - 3:20 AM

Pitching while dealing with a virus, Kenley Jansen gave up a run in the ninth on his way to his 18th save Friday.

Jansen's stuff wasn't quite there tonight, but he had just enough to get the job done against the Angels. He might get Saturday off after laboring through 26 pitches in this one, potentially opening up a save chance for J.P. Howell or Pedro Baez.
Aug 1 - 3:19 AM

Alex Guerrero hit his 11th homer Friday in the win over the Angels.

Guerrero had been struggling mightily in his bit role, and the homer was his first since June 2. He's due additional playing time now with Justin Turner on the DL, so maybe he'll go on another role. Mixed leaguers in need of homers could do worse than rotating him in next week.
Aug 1 - 3:15 AM

Alex Wood is scheduled to make his Dodgers debut on Tuesday against the Phillies.

The 24-year-old southpaw posted a 3.54 ERA, 1.41 WHIP and 90/36 K/BB ratio over 119 1/3 innings with the Braves this season. He should see his fantasy value benefit from the move to the pitcher-friendly confines of Dodger Stadium.
Jul 31 - 7:19 PM

Dodgers optioned RHP Zach Lee to Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Lee struggled in his one spot start with the Dodgers, allowing seven runs on 11 hits over 4 2/3 innings against the Mets. He'll continue to bide his time in the rotation at Triple-A until he's needed again.
