    NYT ^ | 10/25/17 | BENJAMIN HOFFMAN and DAVID WALDSTEIN
    The Houston Astros refused to quit in Game 2 of the World Series, repeatedly rallying and scoring six runs from the eighth inning forward in a wild, 7-6 extra-innings victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers that evened the World Series at one game apiece. The heroes were plentiful for the Astros, with Marwin Gonzalez homering to tie the game in the 9th, Jose Altuve and Carlos Correa hitting solo home runs in the 10th to put Houston ahead briefly, and George Springer hitting a two-run homer in the 11th that put them on top to stay. The Dodgers counterpunched with...

    LA Times ^ | 10/26/2017 | Hailey Branson-Potts
    Before stepping into Dodger Stadium this week, Norman Lloyd had attended one World Series. In 1926. As a 12-year-old boy at Yankee Stadium, he watched as Babe Ruth slid into second base and split his pants. Now, a mere 91 years later, the actor — known as the rigid headmaster who fired Robin Williams in “Dead Poets Society” and the villain who fell from the Statue of Liberty in Alfred Hitchcock’s “Saboteur" — returned to the Fall Classic to watch a series between the Dodgers and Houston Astros that already has the makings of a Hollywood drama.

    CHICAGO (AP) — Enrique Hernandez put a Hollywood ending on an LA story three decades in the making. Fueled by Hernandez's home run trilogy, Clayton Kershaw and the Los Angeles Dodgers are finally going to the World Series. Hernandez homered three times and drove in seven runs, Kershaw breezed through six crisp innings and Los Angeles ended the Chicago Cubs' title defense with an 11-1 victory in Game 5 of the NL Championship Series on Thursday night.

    Charlie Culberson tried to score from second on a single by Justin Turner and was initially called out by umpire Mike Winters for not touching home plate after evading Willson Contreras' tag. The Dodgers challenged the call, and after a video review, it was determined that Contreras blocked the plate before he received the ball. The interpretation of the rule infuriated Maddon. The Dodgers challenged on the grounds Contreras broke rule 7.13, which states "unless the catcher is in possession of the ball, the catcher cannot block the pathway of the runner as he is attempting to score. If, in...

    The team with the best record in baseball owns the longest MLB losing streak of 2017.

    Tom Hawkins, who played six seasons for the Lakers, worked as a broadcaster in L.A. and later served as a Dodgers executive, passed away at his home in Malibu on Wednesday. He was 80. A 6-foot-5 forward, Hawkins starred at Chicago’s Parker (now Robeson) High School before playing at Notre Dame, where he became the first African-American student-athlete to earn All-America honors for the Fighting Irish. Hawkins was the first Irish player to average in double figures for scoring and rebounding during each of his three seasons (freshmen were ineligible during his collegiate career). His 1,318 career rebounds remains the...

    LOS ANGELES -- The Dodgers continued their historic 2017 run, using a five-run eighth inning to beat the White Sox, 6-1, on Tuesday night at Dodger Stadium, becoming the first team since the 2004 Cardinals to be 50 games over .500. The Dodgers, who have the best record in baseball at 84-34, reached 50 wins at home for the third straight season. They are on pace to win 117 games, one more than the Major League record shared by the 2001 Seattle Mariners and the 1906 Chicago Cubs.

    Magic Johnson called his shot Thursday night, and he wasn’t shy about it. The Dodgers’ co-owner did not hesitate when he predicted how the team would finish this year. “The Dodgers are going to win the World Series this year,” Johnson said. “This is our year.” Johnson spoke at Clayton Kershaw’s annual Ping Pong 4 Purpose event at Dodger Stadium, at which the Dodgers ace — currently on the disabled list because of a back injury — presented Johnson with the Kershaw’s Challenge Impact Award, in honor of the charitable work Johnson and his foundation have done. “Get healthy,” Johnson...

    LOS ANGELES – Dodgers Hall of Famer Tommy Lasorda has been hospitalized for several days. Details of Lasorda’s illness are being kept private, but a number of Lasorda’s former players have been among those in contact with Lasorda, who has been in the intensive care unit at a Los Angeles hospital. Lasorda, 89, has a history of heart problems and was hospitalized following a heart attack as recently as 2012. Lasorda has been hospitalized multiple times in the past year, including after a fall while attending a memorabilia show in Atlantic City last August and then again for 10 days...

    For a franchise that has been so successful in Los Angeles, the Dodgers’ 10 retired numbers speak largely to a Brooklyn heritage. On the day the Dodgers retired his microphone alongside those numbers — and perhaps for the last time at Dodger Stadium — Vin Scully told stories of the Boys of Summer. “Those numbers are not numbers at all,” Scully said Wednesday. “I can hear them. I really can.” ... In a pregame ceremony, [Tommy] Lasorda and Sandy Koufax unveiled Scully’s blue and white circle along what the Dodgers now call their “ring of honor,” with “VIN SCULLY” atop...

    It’s a month out from the start of the Dodgers’ 2017 regular season. Do you know where your SportsNet LA channel might be? Any optimistic plans to expand distribution for the team-owned 24/7 network continues to be in a contradictory holding pattern, even as outside forces mount that some predict will ultimately break the stalemate that began four years ago. Charter Communications, which bought out Time Warner Cable last year and was ready to take a fresh approach at negotiations, concedes it does not anticipate any sort of revived agreement in the near future with any more cable or satellite...

    Full title: AT&T and DirecTV colluded in an illegal plot that kept Dodgers games off the air, DOJ lawsuit alleges AT&T and DirecTV acted as ringleaders in an illegal plot against the Dodgers Channel that kept Los Angeles sports fans from watching their favorite team on television, according to a major lawsuit filed Wednesday by the Justice Department. The anti-collusion suit alleges that DirecTV -- and its corporate parent, AT&T -- shared private negotiating information in 2014 with other TV providers, including Cox Communications and Charter Communications, in order to gain a collective advantage over Time Warner Cable, which was...
