They will be hosting the San Diego Padres in the final three home games starting on October 2nd. Tickets start as low as just $5. After that, there is a chance the Dodgers could have a postseason, possibly playing in the National League Division Series. The Dodgers may even make it all the way to the World Series. Be sure to keep an eye out for their status and any postseason tickets.
9/23/15 - The Los Angeles Dodgers have had a month full of ups and downs. Just last week they went through a major slump, losing four games in a row. Fortunately, they were able to pull themselves out of the losing woes and gain a victory against the Arizona Diamondbacks on September 23. The game started out with some excitement as the Dodgers brought in one run in the first inning. The Diamondbacks quickly answered to that by scoring in the second. That’s when the game was taken over by both pitchers. Neither team scored for the next five innings. Luckily in the bottom of the eighth, Chase Utley from the Dodgers propelled his first leadoff home run, winning the game for the Dodgers. Get tickets for their next home game to get in on all of the action.
9/15/15 - The Los Angeles Dodgers maintain the top spot in the NL West Division with 7.5 games ahead of the Giants. They have won seven of their last 10 games. Most recently, they went 2-1 in a three game series against the Rockies. The Dodgers easily beat the Rockies in the first game, but the next night was a close battle that went 16 innings until the Rockies scored the final run to win the game. The Dodgers shut out the Rockies the final night, thanks in a large part to Alex Wood, who was on the mound for eight innings and allowed only one single. Next, the Dodgers take on the Pirates at home starting on the 18th, and tickets remain available with prices as low as $6.
9/9/15 - The Los Angeles Dodgers seem to be nearly unstoppable. They just finished up a winning streak before hitting the road, and they managed to rack up more consecutive wins while traveling around in their away set. The Dodgers got up to five wins, peaking at eight runs in a single game, but it ended on September 9th against the Los Angeles Angels. If this is how well the Dodgers are doing when they are not on their own field, they should really take off upon returning. That will happen on September 14, so secure your spot in the stands today. Tickets for their homecoming game against the Colorado Rockies start at just $3, so there is no reason not to attend. Come out and support your team.
9/3/15 - The Los Angeles Dodgers are making a name for themselves this season as they top the leader boards in the NL West division. Winning the last seven of eight games, the Dodgers are on fire and their record is showing the results. They are currently battling it out against the San Francisco Giants who only trail the Dodgers by five wins in the NL West. On September 1, the Dodgers were able to score early in the third inning, which fueled the team both offensively and defensively to take home the 2-1 win against the Giants. The Dodgers hit the road for their next match up against the San Diego Padres starting on September 3. Tickets are still available for the four-game series and start at approximately $10 each.
8/25/15 - The Los Angeles Dodgers broke their five worst losing streak of the season when they beat the Reds 5-1 on August 25. Two back-to-back doubles by Jimmy Rollins and Yasiel Puig quickly put the Dodgers on the board in the first inning. Adrian Gonzalez hit a double and was brought home by a homer by Justin Turner to bring the score to 3-0 in the third inning. Rollins also hit a two run homer in the sixth inning. The Reds were only able to get one run in the sixth, although they almost tied the game when they loaded the bases eight innings with two outs left. The two teams play twice more on the 26th and 27th, and you still have your chance to get tickets on Razorgator for as low as $2.
8/20/15 - The next time the Los Angeles Dodgers head north to face intrastate rivals in the Bay Area, it’ll surely be too soon. The boys in blue suffered another setback in NorCal, dropping both games of a short interleague set to the Athletics at O.co Coliseum. The Dodger faithful was out in full force for both contests, resulting in a rare Tuesday night sellout in a tightly contested game which saw L.A. hammer a three-run homer in the eighth inning to take a decisive lead. However, the Dodgers’ shaky bullpen faltered, allowing the A’s to rally into extra innings where they eventually stole the win. Los Angeles will head to Houston next followed by Cincinnati beginning Tuesday the 25th. Get your tickets for the Great American Ball Park from $3 and up!
8/12/15 - A disappointing series in Pittsburgh now behind them, the Los Angeles Dodgers return to the Golden State for a week before heading off to Houston. L.A. took two of three against the Nationals at Dodger Stadium, shutting out Washington by a combined 8-0 score in the final two contests. They’ll host Cincinnati for three games over the weekend before heading up the coast to square off with the Athletics in Oakland. With a 3.5 game edge over the Giants in the NL West, the Dodgers are in a good position but must secure every win possible to ensure another trip to the postseason. Tickets are on sale now for Dodgers vs. A’s on Tuesday evening, and the expected pitching matchup should be a good one as Clayton Kershaw takes on Sonny Gray. Be there with tickets starting at $30!
8/5/15 - The Los Angeles Dodgers hit a minor bump as they hit they traveled to Philadelphia to take on the Phillies. Their four-game winning streak came to a close as they got their bearings against their first away opponents in more than a week. In the end, Los Angeles was behind 2-6. However, the Dodgers accommodated fast and picked up the next two wins in Philadelphia, even scoring 10 whole runs in their final matchup. Next, the Dodgers play the Pittsburgh Pirates before returning to Los Angeles. Tickets for their first match back on their own field, which will be against the Washington Nationals, start just $3. They will not be back in town long, however, as they will be leaving again on August 16th. Make sure you get your tickets before then.
7/29/15 - The Los Angeles Dodgers started out strong against the Mets in their most recent four game series, wining the first two. The first game was a shutout, extending Clayton Kershaw's streak of scoreless innings to 29. The next night, the Dodgers had a strong offense, thanks to Justin Turner, who had three extra-base hits and two RBIs, which led to their 7-2 win. However, the Mets dominated in the third game, winning 15-2, and then came back the next night and won, leaving the series in a tie. The Dodgers also lost their first game against the Athletics, but they have another chance on the 29th to win before they host the Angels for a three game series that begins on July 31. You can still get tickets, with prices starting at $24.
7/22/15 - The Los Angeles Dodgers are first in their division, despite losing two of three games against the Braves. In the first game, the Braves got on the board first. The Dodgers tried to catch up and had a strong four run fifth to tie it up, but the Braves got three more runs to win. The second game was also close but ended in the Braves' favor. In the final match between the two teams, the Braves got on the board first with a run in the third inning. However, the Dodgers had a strong fifth, thanks to hits by Alberto Callaspo, Jimmy Rollins, and Joc Pederson. The Dodgers head to New York to play four games against the Mets starting on July 23. Tickets remain available, with prices as low as $1.
7/14/15 - The Los Angeles Dodgers certainly made the most of their series of home games. Winning six of their last nine games, the Dodgers are looking good as they prepare for their upcoming three away sets. They will be taking on the Washington Nationals, the Atlanta Braves, and the New York Mets before returning to Los Angeles. Hopefully they have built up enough momentum to hold their own even without the home field advantage. There is a five win gap between the Dodgers and the next highest team, last year's champions, the San Francisco Giants. Distancing themselves from the second place team would do wonders for their ranking as the season starts to wind down in the next couple months. The Dodgers will return on July 28th. Get your tickets now.
7/8/15 - It’s been tough for the Los Angeles Dodgers to string together consecutive wins lately, as they’ve traded their last five games with the Mets and Phillies to remain atop the NL West. L.A. will also be sending a few All-Stars to Cincinnati next week, including Yasmani Grandal (first appearance), Adrian Gonzalez (fifth), Joc Pederson (first), Zack Greinke (third), and possibly Clayton Kershaw, depending on the results of the Final Five vote which runs through this Friday. The Dodgers will hope to stop treading water and pick up some ground in the standings this weekend as they host the Brewers at home. Tickets are on sale now for all three games at Dodger Stadium including the Sunday matinee—get your seats starting at just $3 each!
7/1/15 - Six wins in their last eight outings has built a three-game cushion for the Los Angeles Dodgers in the NL West. L.A. took it to the Diamondbacks this week, dropping just one out of four games to increase their win-loss record to 45-35 on the year. Meanwhile, the front office has been making moves on the international circuit, securing nine new overseas prospects including Cuban right-handed pitcher Yadiel Alvarez, a coveted potential starter who hits 100 MPH on the radar gun with regularity. High-stakes gambles have paid off in the past for the Dodgers, who have seen big money turn into big results with acquisitions such as Yasiel Puig in recent years. L.A. will remain at home for the first third of the month, hosting the Phillies this week for four at Dodger Stadium. Get your tickets for Thursday night starting from just $2!
6/24/15 - After a pair of frustrating losses, the Los Angeles Dodgers managed to salvage a win in Chicago to add on to their narrow NL West lead over the Giants. L.A. jumped out to a four-run advantage early behind a three-run shot from Justin Turner in the third. Adrian Gonzalez added a hit and an RBI as the Dodgers notched their 40th victory of the year. Gonzalez is still in the running for a starting spot on the NL All-Star squad but trails Paul Goldschmidt at the first base position by a healthy margin. Goldy and Gonzo will square off starting 6/29 when the Dodgers visit the Diamondbacks in Arizona. Tickets are on sale now for the series and you can claim your seats starting at $15 for the Monday opener!
6/16/15 - The Los Angeles Dodgers continue to dominate the NL West with their 37-28 record, even though they’re on a two-game losing streak. In Monday’s game against the Rangers, Yasiel Puig got frustrated, snapping a bat and shattering a light in the dugout, when he struck out three times. Carlos Frias tried to hold the Rangers back, and he shut out the team for five innings, but gave up four runs in the sixth. The Rangers won 4-1. This weekend, the Dodgers host the San Francisco Giants, starting on Friday (6/19). Get your tickets, starting at $15 and unwind after your long week at work. It’s the final chance to catch the Dodgers at home until July, so come on down to the ballpark and cheer for the home team.
6/9/15 - A three-game sweep of the Diamondbacks has helped propel the Los Angeles Dodgers back into sole possession of first place in the NL West, as they hold just a half-game lead over the defending champion Giants. The Dodgers picked up a 7-6 win over Arizona with a walk-off single from newcomer Howie Kendrick on Wednesday night, scoring Yasiel Puig from second base for the deciding run. Reliever Daniel Hudson took the loss for the D-Backs after giving up a pair of walks in the bottom of the ninth to set up Howie’s heroics. Next up for L.A. is a day of rest followed by a Friday night showdown with the Padres in San Diego. Get your seats at Petco Park starting at just $26 for opening night!
6/3/15 - The Los Angeles Dodgers sit on top of the NL West with a 31-22 record, even with a loss (6-7) in Wednesday’s game against the Rockies. The Dodgers had the lead going into the ninth, but the Rockies picked up three runs and took the game. Dodgers’ Joc Pederson is the first rookie to homer in five straight games in a single season, tying with the record Matt Kemp set in 2010. The Dodgers host the St. Louis Cardinals over the weekend. Tickets for Saturday’s (6/6) game start at $6. Beginning Monday, (6/8) the Dodgers face the Arizona Diamondbacks in a three-game series. You can get tickets starting at $4 for one of these evening games. Come out and cheer for your home to win the game.
5/27/15 - Hopeful that staff ace Clayton Kershaw is rounding into form, the Los Angeles Dodgers are ready to make a push to strengthen their hold on the NL West division. They currently lead the resurgent Giants by just one game in the standings and will face the National League-leading Cardinals seven times in the next 11 days, making this a crucial stretch for L.A. The Dodgers rebounded from being swept in San Francisco with a pair of series wins over the Padres and Braves, taking two of three in each set. Kershaw and company will head to St. Louis to wrap their May schedule, and tickets for Busch Stadium are available now for all three games. Prices start at just $14 for Friday night’s opener, so come out and see two of the NL’s best go head to head!
5/19/15 - The Los Angeles Dodgers are still the top team in the NL Western Division, but they have been struggling lately. While they only won half their games against the Colorado Rockies, they managed to end the set on a high note, shutting the Rockies out in their final meet. Unfortunately, the Dodgers followed this win up by being shut out themselves by the second place team in the NL Western Division, the San Francisco Giants. If the Dodgers want to hang onto the lead, they need to start taking some wins against the Giants. Once they return from their series of away games, the Dodgers will be taking on the San Diego Padres. Tickets for the first game, on May 22nd, start at only $5.
5/12/15 - The Los Angeles Dodgers are on a five game winning streak, with a 22-10 record placing them first in the NL West and second overall in the NL. In Tuesday’s game against the Marlins, Miami picked up a run in the first inning, but the Dodgers came back strong, earning one run in both the third and the fourth, then gaining four runs in the fifth, and another five in the sixth. It was almost a runaway game with a final 11-1 win. The Dodgers host the Colorado Rockies in a four-game series beginning on Thursday (5/14). Tickets start at only $2 so you can bring a crowd to enjoy some great game with your family and friends. Come on out and cheer on the home team!
5/5/15 - The Los Angeles Dodgers are finished with their series of home games and they managed to only lose a single game. They remained undefeated against the Arizona Diamondbacks. This strong run has brought their wins/losses to an impressive 16-9, which is just shy of the league leader. It does, however, put the Dodgers at the top of the AL Western Division by a very large margin. Their first game away from their own field was less successful, however. Despite taking an early three-point lead by the end of the fourth inning, the Milwaukee Brewers managed to catch up and win with four points. Keep an eye out to see how the Dodgers fare in the upcoming matches. They will return to Los Angeles on May 11th to play the Miami Marlins.
4/27/15 - It’s been a tough week for the Los Angeles Dodgers. After a 2-1 loss against the Giants on Monday, they learned that their star pitcher, Brandon McCarthy, has a torn ligament in his elbow and will need to undergo surgery to repair it. With McCarthy likely gone for the rest of the season, the team managers will have to work the bullpen carefully in order to prevent stress and injury from overuse of backup pitchers. As the series with the Giants finishes tonight (Wednesday), relievers Yimi Garcia, Kenley Jansen, Angel Pagan and Buster Posey will have their chance to shine on the mound. Next up for the Dodgers is a series against Arizona at Dodgers Stadium in Los Angeles, California. Our tickets for the three-game series on May 1-3 start at just $5.
4/22/15 - The Los Angeles Dodgers were on a seven-game winning streak until they traveled to San Francisco to meet the Giants. The long-time rivals met on Tuesday, and the Giants won in a 2-6 final, surprising everyone because the Dodgers were in first place in the National League, and the Giants were in last. The Dodgers continue their games against the Giants, then they fly south to San Diego for three weekend games against the Padres. On Monday (4/27), the Dodgers come back to Los Angeles to host the San Francisco Giants for a rematch on home turf. Get your tickets now starting at $9 for great seats to see these two teams battle it out on the field. The Giants will be in town on Tuesday and Wednesday also.
4/16/15 - The Los Angeles Dodgers are on a four-game winning streak, shutting out the Seattle Mariners in the three game series. Adrian Gonzalez went 2-for-5 on Wednesday; the first Dodger to accomplish this feat since Jackie Robinson did it in 1952. It was even more symbolic because it happened on Jackie Robinson Day while Gonzalez wore the famous “42.” When the Dodgers are in town, the best place to catch them is at Dodger Stadium because of the lack of television air time in the area. In the upcoming weekend, the Dodgers host the Colorado Rockies, beginning on Friday (4/17). Tickets for this evening game start at $9, and you won’t find a better way to unwind after a long week of work. Don’t miss out, because after Sunday’s game, the Dodgers go back out on the road.
4/7/15 - Behind the bats of offseason middle-infield acquisitions Howie Kendrick and Jimmy Rollins, the Los Angeles Dodgers overcame visiting San Diego – who picked up former Dodger outfielder Matt Kemp in the offseason – by a 6-3 count. Rollins’ eighth-inning blast into the right field corner made the difference for the Dodgers.
3/31/15 - The Los Angeles Dodgers got a bit of a scare on Tuesday when outfielder Andre Ethier was hit by a pitch and had to leave the team’s Spring Training game. However, postgame x-rays of Ethier’s elbow, where he had been struck by the pitch, showed no damage.
3/24/15 - The big news out of the Camelback Ranch camp of the Los Angeles Dodgers has to be the signing of Cuban free agent infielder Hector Olivera. Olivera was inked to a six-year contract, said to be front-loaded, worth $62.5 million, with the 30-year-old getting a sizable signing bonus; it’s unclear at the moment what position Olivera will play, or where he will start the season.
3/17/15 - With Spring Training 2015 well underway, fans of the Los Angeles Dodgers were able to catch a preview of a possible World Series matchup over the weekend. The Dodgers took on the Seattle Mariners at a packed Camelback Ranch Stadium in Glendale, AZ. It was a close game until the top of the eighth inning, when Darwin Barney nailed a two run home run to increase the Dodgers’ lead by three. Alex Guerrero continued the late game tear, hitting a single to score Enrique Hernandez. The Dodgers ultimately came out on top, winning the thrilling match up 5 – 2. The Chicago Cubs will be the Dodgers’ next opponent when they square off at Camelback Ranch on Wednesday. Our tickets are still available at varying prices.
3/9/15 - Fun story out of Camelback Ranch today: The Los Angeles Dodgers are “enlisting” a number of Air Force men from nearby Luke Air Force Base to help out, shagging fly balls during batting practice. The Dodgers say they wanted to save wear and tear on their pitchers, as well as reach out to the local community. The idea came from Nick Francona, Dodgers assistant director of player development (and yes, son of Cleveland manager Terry), who served in Afghanistan.
3/3/15 - Along with most of the clubs in the Cactus League, the Los Angeles Dodgers are set to kick off their Spring Training slate this week. The Boys in Blue will square off against their Camelback Ranch campmates, the Chicago White Sox, on Wednesday afternoon, with Erik Bedard scheduled to fire the first pitch. Super lefty Clayton Kershaw is set to not only face the Chisox on Thursday, he has been announced as the Dodgers’ Opening Day starter by manager Don Mattingly.
2/19/15 - The Los Angeles Dodgers had their closer, Kenley Jansen, undergoing foot surgery recently and it looks like he is going to be out of the game for at least 12 weeks. This raises the question of who will be replacing him. The Dodgers' preseason is set to start in just under two weeks. The popular opinion is that Los Angeles might recruit the Detroit Tiger's Joba Chamberlain because he is one of only a few right-handed relievers left free. Regardless of the outcome, we will know soon enough. After 16 preseason games, the Dodgers begin their regular season on April 6th taking on the San Diego Padres. If you would like to catch them right at the start of their 2015 season, get your tickets soon because they are now starting at $76.
1/27/15 - As Los Angeles Dodgers fans await the official start of the 2015 MLB season, they are anxiously looking for any news about who will be join the team for the upcoming season, especially with the loss of Matt Kemp and Hanley Ramirez. One of the biggest rumors centers on the star Cuban second basemen Yoan Moncado. According to rumors, Moncado joined the team for a private workout that was attended by Andrew Friedman, the president of baseball operations, and Don Mattingly, the manager of the team. Moncado is reportedly one of the best teenager ballplayers out of Cuba since Jorge Soler. The first preseason game for the Dodgers is set for March 4th against the Chicago White Sox at Camelback Ranch in Arizona. Tickets are on sale, starting at $4.
9/29/14 - The Los Angeles Dodgers, champions of the NL West and second-best record in the league, open the National League Division Series on Friday afternoon (evening on the East Coast) against Central Division champ St. Louis. The Dodgers hold a slight edge over the Cardinals in head-to-head play, winning four of seven games over the long haul of the regular season. Manager Don Mattingly juggled his pitching rotation just so, which will put likely NL Cy Young winner and potential MVP candidate Clayton Kershaw against Cards’ ace Adam Wainwright, with Zack Greinke slated to take the mound for Game 2 at Chaves Ravine. The Dodgers enter the postseason on a roll, having on five straight and eight of their last 10.
9/22/14 - Los Angeles and San Francisco start a 3-game series in LA tonight.

8/11/14 – The Los Angeles Dodgers have extended their NL West lead to 4.5 games ahead of San Francisco, and with a four-game set coming up against the Atlanta Braves, the So Cal team may surge even further. Though bookended by series loses to the Cubs and Brewers, Los Doyers took down the Angels three games to one in last week's exhilarating Freeway Faceoff.

Yasiel Puig and Dee Gordon made their first All-Star appearance, while unstoppable RHP Zack Greinke and the game’s best arm, LHP Clayton Kershaw, showed the world their fire from the mound. LA may be riding high, but the Milwaukee Brewers are just half a game behind them in the standings. Buy your Los Angeles Dodgers tickets now and be there when the Boys in Blue ensure their league supremacy.
7/3/14 - Today the Los Angeles Dodgers begin a six game road trip with the first four coming against the Colorado Rockies before traveling to Detroit to play the Tiger for a quick two game series. The Dodgers have dropped their last two games but are heading into the very hitter friendly ballpark that is Coors Field which should help to provide a little boost in offensive production as Rockies vs Dodger tickets are averaging under $60 for the series according to RazorGator.
7/2/14 - The Los Angeles Dodgers hope to rebound today against the Cleveland Indians after dropping yesterdays game 10-3 after the Dodgers won the series opener on Monday. This will now turn todays matchup the rubber match of the series as Dodger tickets are going for under $20 on average when they send out Hyun-Jin Ryu to the mound today.
6/23/14 - The Los Angeles Dodgers have been riding high as of lately having won five of their last six games with one of those wins being Clayton Kershaw’s no-hitter last week against the Colorado Rockies. Today Los Angeles will travel to Kansas City to pay the Royals as Zack Greinke will take the mound to play against his former team as Dodger tickets are averaging $35.
6/9/14 - In his major league career, Yasiel Puig has now played in 161 games – a game shy of a full regular season – and the numbers he has put up in that time frame are quite impressive: a slash line of .325/.406/.554 for an OPS of .960; 37 doubles and 30 homers among his 194 hits; 99 runs scored and 82 RBI; even 17 stolen bases. In terms of last year’s batting leaders, this would have put Puig among the leaders last season: second to Michael Cuddyer in batting average; third in OBP, first in slugging and OPS, 10th in doubles, tied for third in homers, second in hits, and sixth in runs; in short, not bad for a career start.
6/3/14 - It should be noted that Los Angeles Dodgers starting pitcher Zack Greinke was not particularly awful in giving up four earned runs for the first time in 26 starts spread over two seasons; he allowed just five hits and two walks total over his six innings of work. However, three of those hits – a pair of doubles and a home run – came from the same player, Pittsburgh’s Andrew McCutchen, the reigning National League MVP. Greinke took just his second loss this season, a day after the Dodgers plated 12 runs in support of Hyun-Jin Ryu’s sixth win. The Dodgers are in second place in the National League West, watching the hated San Francisco Giants pull out to a 7 ½ game lead in the division.
5/27/14 - It was almost a truly historic weekend for the Los Angeles Dodgers over the long Memorial Day weekend. The Blue Crew took two out of three at Philadelphia, the second victory being Josh Beckett’s no-hitter in a 6-0 decision. But that’s not all! The following night, lefty Hyun-Jin Ryu came off the disabled list and tossed seven innings of perfect baseball before giving up a ringing double to Cincinnati’s Todd Frazier. If Ryu had managed to negotiate the last six outs successfully, it would have been a first for Major League Baseball – the first time no-hitters had been tossed by the same team on back-to-back days. (Interestingly enough, the Reds were involved in the last time no-hitters had been pitched on consecutive days by opposing teams. In 1969, they exchanged no-nos with Houston, who was then in the National League.) On top of that, outfielder Yasiel Puig has been on a real tear at the plate. The second-year Cuban defector has raised his batting average to .345, good for second in the NL behind Colorado’s Troy Tulowitzki; Puig’s slash line of .345/.440/.616 has also risen in the charts, with his OPS now standing at 1.055, also good for second in the NL behind Tulowitzki’s 1.200 and just ahead of Miami’s Giancarlo Stanton at 1.027.
5/19/14 - Yasiel Puig finally had his hitting streak broken at 16 games by Arizona on Sunday, but during that span he crushed six homers, giving him nine on the season; and raised his season batting average to .322, tops among Dodger hitters and seventh in the National League, going a long way to proving that last season’s breakout performance was no fluke. Puig’s complete slash line for 2014 is .322/.411/.586 for a second-in-the-NL OPS of .997. On the mound, it was a tale of two pitchers this weekend – Zack Greinke moving to 7-1 on the season, with 61 strikeouts and a 2.03 ERA, all Dodger bests this season; while erstwhile ace Clayton Kershaw was seriously roughed up the next night by Arizona, allowing seven runs, all earned, on six hits in just 1 2/3 innings, taking the loss in the 18-7 loss to the Diamondbacks.
5/14/14 - Since the start of May, the National League West leading Los Angeles Dodgers have struggled collectively somewhat; after sweeping Minnesota to start the month, the Blue Crew have lost two of three to the Marlins in Miami, two of three to the Nationals in Washington, and three of four to the rival Giants back home in Chavez Ravine. Clayton Kershaw made a triumphant return to the rotation in Washington, while Dan Haren is 2-1 in his three starts since the beginning of the month, and Zack Greinke continued his strong performance collecting the lone win against the Giants on May 10. Offensively, Cuban phenom Yasiel Puig is on a tear; Puig has a MLB career long 12 game hitting streak working. For the season so far, Puig is hitting .318 (second to Dee Gordon) with seven home runs (second to Adrian Gonzalez) and a team high 29 RBI; Gordon has been a real spark at the top of the Dodger lineup, hitting ,324 and leading the majors with 24 stolen bases.
4/29/14 - Even though he is not thrilled about the prospect, Los Angeles Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw will make one more rehab start this week, for Chattanooga in the Class AA Southern League against Tennessee. Kershaw threw a bullpen session this past weekend in Colorado, after which the lefthander said he felt normal; Kershaw had been wanting to make the immediate jump back into his spot in the rotation facing major league hitters, but team officials said that they wanted Kershaw to build up his pitch count so that he could give the team 90 to 100 pitches when he finally does come off the disabled list. Kershaw had been sidelined with an inflamed back since after his start in last month’s Opening Series in Australia. The Dodgers’ series-opening game with Minnesota was postponed due to inclement weather, which gives the Blue Crew’s workhorse reliever, Kenley Jansen, a much-needed day off.
4/17/14 - The Dodgers prepare for a midweek three game set with their rivals from up the coast, the San Francisco Giants, with the Dodgers setting a game ahead of the Giants in the current standings. The Blue Crew come into this series on a hot streak, having just claimed a weekend sweep of Arizona in Phoenix. Starters Hyun-Jin Ryu (2-1), Zack Greinke (3-0) and Dan Haren (2-0) claimed the wins for the Dodgers over the Diamondbacks; Greinke has one quality start in his three outings, but stands second in strikeouts with 21 to teammate Ryu’s 22 whiffs. The starting rotation will have to work hard to fill in while Clayton Kershaw remains out, but so far they’ve been up to the task. With the bat, Adrian Gonzalez has provided the power, having launched a team high five longballs, and a slash line of .280/.339/.680. Matt Kemp is playing catchup in a big way though; he currently has three homers, while Hanley Ramirez has blasted a pair of big flies. Dee Gordon (currently at .400) and Juan Uribe (.358) have been the top contact men for the Dodgers.
4/9/14 - Having gotten off to a solid start in 2014, the Los Angeles Dodgers welcomed back outfielder Matt Kemp over the weekend, and Kemp made a big splash, cracking a pair of longballs against rivals San Francisco over the weekend. Since coming off the disabled list, Kemp started all three weekend contests against the Giants, as phenom Yasiel Puig was first late for Friday’s game to earn a benching, then missing a pair of games on Sunday and Tuesday with a strained thumb. The Dodgers sit just a game back of the Giants in the National League West Division. More good news for the Blue: After missing the trip Down Under for the Opening Series against Arizona, pitcher Zack Greinke has bounced back strongly, with a pair of wins in his first two starts. Greinke has allowed four earned runs and eight hits, while striking out 13 and walking just two in 11 innings pitched.
4/1/14 - Word out of the Dodger Stadium clubhouse is not good with regards to Los Angeles Dodgers ace lefty Clayton Kershaw. Kershaw has an inflamed upper back according to Dodger team officials, who announced on April 1 that the pitcher would be out at least two to three weeks. The Dodger team doctor reviewed an MRI and advised the team that a “submaximal throwing” rehab program would be indicated; ESPN.com reports that manager Don Mattingly said that Kershaw would need to be put on a rehab progression that would end up in a minor-league start before returning to the starting rotation. After sweeping the Diamondbacks in Australia to open the season, the Blue Crew took part in yet another opener, this time falling 3-1 to the San Diego Padres on ESPN’s Opening Night on March 30. Hyun-Jin Ryu tossed seven strong innings, allowing no runs three hits, three walks and seven K’s before yielding to reliever Brian Wilson, who gave up three runs, two earned, in the bottom of the eighth inning.
3/25/14 - Behind the strong pitching of starters Clayton and Hyun-Jin Ryu, the Los Angeles Dodgers have started the Major League Baseball regular season in style, with a two-game Sydney sweep of the Arizona Diamondbacks. Kershaw struck out seven in 6 2/3 innings of work in the season opener at the Sydney Cricket Ground, while Scott Van Slyke was the hitting star, going 2-for-3 with a two-run homer in the fourth inning. In the second game, it was Cuban phenom Yasiel Puig’s turn to shine at the plate, going 3-for-5 with a double, a run scored and two RBI’s; however, after a strikeout in the ninth inning, Puig failed to come out to the field for the bottom half of the inning, claiming a back injury. The early exit was not overlooked by Dodger skipper Don Mattingly, who told ESPNLosAngeles that Puig “grabs something every time he swings.” An MRI on Puig’s back showed no damage.
3/18/14 - It’s a historic venue, the Sydney Cricket Ground in Australia, and the Los Angeles Dodgers are ready to make their own history this weekend – although, reports ESPN.com, the infield will likely feel familiar to the Boys in Blue, the clay which makes up the SCG infield having mostly been imported from SoCal. The Dodgers arrived just days ago in Sydney, and are getting acclimated to the SCG, normally (as it says in the name) a home for the game of cricket, which is Australia’s “summer game.” Cricket has been played on the location of the SCG, actually located in the suburb of Moore Park southeast of the downtown central business district, since the middle of the 19th century; once the Dodgers and Arizona Diamondbacks return Up Over, it will revert to its normal winter use as the home ground of the Sydney Swans of the Australian Football League, a code of football which is neither America’s (or even Canada’s) gridiron game, nor rugby, nor even soccer.
3/13/14 - The Los Angeles Dodgers this past weekend announced the starters for the Opening Series later this month at the Sydney Cricket Ground in Sydney, Australia. Lefty Clayton Kershaw will have the honor of taking the first trip to the mound against the Arizona Diamondbacks on March 22; followed by second-year hurler Hyun-Jin Ryu on March 23. For Kershaw, this will be his fourth consecutive season opening start; Ramon Martinez was the last Dodger pitcher to have that honor, from 1995 through 1998. Ryu will replace Zack Greinke, who is recovering from a calf strain in his first spring start. Another injured Dodger, outfielder Matt Kemp, is close to making his return from offseason ankle surgery.
3/5/14 - Manager Don Mattingly revealed on March 3 that pitcher Zack Greinke would not pitch in either of the Los Angeles Dodgers’ two Opening Series games, later this month in Sydney, Australia. Greinke strained his right calf in his first appearance this spring for the Boys in Blue, and this injury has thrown the righthander off his training schedule. Greinke raised some hackles Down Under with some controversial comments late last month, saying he had “zero enthusiasm” for the trip to Australia. Another key cog in the Dodgers’ starting rotation, lefty Clayton Kershaw, is having difficulty finding his rhythm; he told reporters, “I’m searching for answers right now,” after giving up seven hits and eight runs in his first two outings of the spring.
2/26/14 - The Los Angeles Dodgers have become a haven for Cuban baseball exiles. After Yasiel Puig arrived on the scene last June to electrifying success, the Dodgers signed infielder Alexander Guerrero to a four year, $28 million deal; and just this week, announced the signing of another young Cuban infielder, Erisbel Arruebarrena, to a five year, $25 million deal. The Dodgers were one of the first squads to begin training for the 2014 season, as they will be headed Down Under for Major League Baseball’s first Opening Series in Australia, a two game set with the Arizona Diamondbacks.
2/18/14 - The Los Angeles Dodgers are all accounted for at Camelback Ranch in Arizona, and Spring Training has started off as exciting as ever. Forget our young superstars donning the blue and white, legendary pitcher Sandy Koufax is gracing the field at Glendale, AZ! The icon has been giving priceless tips at the training facility and scouting players himself, including Puig and "protégé" Kershaw, in his role as special adviser and consultant. Since his arrival, Koufax has been "an autograph magnet," so why miss your chance to get your memorabilia signed by one of the sport's greatest players of all time? Lock in Los Angeles Dodgers tickets for their first Spring Training game against the Diamondbacks (2/27) for an affordable $15.
2/11/14 - The Dodgers will welcome Matt Kemp back from injury, which means LA boasts another loaded outfield this season, with Yasiel Puig, Carl Crawford and Andre Ethier worthy of starting. Though the players are paid a high salary, this talented depth provides needed relief, because there's no guarantee for a healthy season even as a youngster. Most Dodgers are already down in Glendale, AZ though their first official workout isn't until Feb 14. See LA's high-profile players take on their first Spring Training opponents, the Arizona Diamondbacks, for a mere $7!
1/28/14 - This offseason Los Angeles Dodgers were pretty quiet, resigning the bulk of the roster and their manager Don Mattingly—quiet except for making the biggest splash in MLB pitching history! The Dodgers signed two-time Cy Young winner, and the face of the franchise, Clayton Kershaw, to a $215 million seven year contract, the richest deal for a pitcher in MLB history. Los Angeles Dodgers tickets are cheap for Spring Training, averaging just $32 at Camelback Ranch. Come see this high-profile team in action for pre-season!
This offseason, the Los Angeles Dodgers were primarily focused on cementing two-time Cy Young Award-winner, philanthropist and pitcher, Clayton Kershaw, and his future within the organization, and keep him for as long as he’s throwing the ball. The Dodgers made headlines by agreeing to the richest deal for a pitcher in MLB history: a seven year $215 million contract to their franchise player. Further, manager Don Mattingly has signed a three-year contract extension after taking the Dodgers to the top of the NL West last season, before losing to the St. Louis Cardinals in the NCLS.
Breathing a sigh of relief after both deals were set, the Dodgers entertained the idea of Japanese ace Masahiro Tanaka, who recently closed a deal with the New York Yankees. Los Angeles fans, expect to see Yasiel Puig again after his monstrous rookie season, Juan Uribe, bearded reliever Brian Wilson and J.P. Howell back for more action this year; though slugger Matt Kemp will reportedly not be available for the opening-day game against the Arizona Diamondbacks in Australia. Be there as this star-studded team makes another run at the world title with Los Angeles Dodgers tickets today!
10/11/13 - The Dodgers are looking to win their first NL pennant since 1988. After beating the Braves in the NLDS in four games, LA will take on St. Louis in the best of seven series. Dodgers NLCS tickets in Los Angeles are averaging $330, $15 more than NLCS tickets in St. Louis.
9/24/13 - The Los Angeles Dodgers were the first team in the League to clinch a 2013 postseason berth. After coming from 9.5 games back in the NL West, the Dodgers clinched the Division. It was the earliest in the season the franchise had ever clinched a division title and the greatest deficit they had ever had to overcome to finish on top. NLDS tickets for the first home game at Dodger Stadium are averaging $143. Get in the gate for $51 and watch as the Dodgers begin their journey toward their seventh World Series title.
7/26/13 - Every few years, a rookie phenom comes along which sweeps Dodger Nation up in a hype-mania that befits a team in the Entertainment Capital of the World: Steve Garvey in 1974, Fernando Valenzuela in 1981, Hideo Nomo in 1995. 2013 sees a new name added to that list, that of rookie outfielder Yasiel Puig. The young right-handed slugger hit over .400 in his first month in the league and has propelled the team back into contention for NL West crown. While it remains to be seen whether Puig-mania will be strong enough – as will Puig’s own on-field performance – to last the entire season, there is no doubt that the Cuban defector has injected the Boys in Blue with a new-found enthusiasm and drive which has seen them come roaring out of the NL West cellar to take command of the division. Hope springs eternal at Chavez Ravine, and Dodger fans will be looking forward to adding another name to the great history that this proud franchise carries.
3/27/13 – Expectations are high in Los Angeles as they often are in Tinseltown. The Dodgers haven't reached the World Series since winning the title in 1988 and with their $200+ million payroll, all eyes will be on the Franchise to deliver. True Blue fans are just days away from seeing their star-studded roster play at Dodger Stadium. The team will be tested right out of the gate as the Dodgers open the regular season at home against World Series Champions – San Francisco Giants. Dodgers’ fans heading to the Opening Day game should expect to pay more than the average regular season game; tickets start at $74 in the Top Deck and Lower Reserve and peak at $1,300 directly behind the Dodgers’ dugout. Dodgers currently hold the third most expensive Opening Day ticket on the secondary market. But, April is a great month to catch the team in action; Dodgers tickets in April are the second cheapest in the League (avg. $33). Just Los Angeles Angels tickets this month are cheaper, averaging $27.
The Los Angeles Dodgers, fueled by the incoming ownership team led by Magic Johnson, went on quite a spending spree at the trading deadline last season. Whether this rebuilding is done or whether the Boys in Blue still need more tinkering remains to be seen, as the Dodgers, who challenged for the National League West title for much of last season, fell off the pace and ultimately finished second to their hated Bay Area rivals, the San Francisco Giants.
A key question will be starting pitching — after perennial Cy Young candidate Clayton Kershaw, can starters Josh Beckett, Zach Greinke, and Chad Billingsley pitch up to their potential; and, is South Korean product Hyun-Jin Ryu ready for the bigs? Another question that needs a solid answer, is Matt Kemp healthy? If he is, the Dodgers will have their counterbalance to the Giants' Buster Posey offensively. Even with an injury-shortened 2012, Kemp led the Dodgers in longballs with 23. Right fielder Andre Ethier will need to pick up where he left off with his steady presence in the outfield, and shortstop Hanley Ramirez will need to pick up his power stats as well. Manager Don Mattingly will need to work on blending the seasoned vets with the newcomers if he expects to have a good time at Chavez Ravine in 2013. How much will Dodgers tickets cost in 2013? Los Angeles Dodgers tickets at Dodger Stadium average $50 — the fifth cheapest MLB tickets this season. The 2013 Dodgers schedule even features many home games with LA Dodgers tickets priced from $3 in the Top Deck and $8-$10 in the Infield and Lower Reserves.
