Rangers poke fun at Dodgers on Twitter after World Series loss

Category : Dodgers , Featured , MLB , Red Sox

The Dodgers’ loss in Game 5 on Sunday night resulted in them having lost back-to-back World Series.
It will likely be difficult for Dodgers players, coaches and fans to digest, but one particular team that knows all about consecutive World Series losses lended their “support.”
The Texas Rangers lost in the 2010 and 2011 World Series, and given how much talent the team had on its roster during that time, it was surprising that they weren’t able to win the Fall Classic, at least once.
As such, the Rangers sent this funny tweet after the Dodgers were defeated by the Red Sox in Game 5.
No one really remembers the team that finishes in second place, so the support group idea makes sense, even if it doesn’t really exist.

Watch: Chris Sale makes Manny Machado fall down on game-ending strikeout

Red Sox ace Chris Sale closed out the World Series in a big way on Sunday night.
Sale came in to pitch in the ninth inning of Game 5, as he was asked to come in and shut the Dodgers batters down. His team was enjoying a 5-1 lead at the time, and Sale did exactly what was asked of him — retiring the meat of the Dodgers’ lineup, in order.
And while Sale is known for starting games, rather than closing them out, he really shut the door on the Dodgers quickly on Sunday. It took him only 15 pitches to strike out the side, as he retired Justin Turner, Enrique Hernandez and Manny Machado. Not only that, he accomplished the feat in style — getting Machado to swing so hard at a slider that he fell down.
Here’s how the 2018 World Series came to a close.
That was the final pitch of the World Series, and it really summed up how dominant the Sox have been during both the regular season and the playoffs.

Watch: Manny Machado tried to kick Steve Pearce for cheap shot during game

Category : Dodgers , MLB , Trending Now

Dodgers slugger Manny Machado was blasted when he was seen kicking Brewers first baseman Jesus Aguilar in Game 4 of the National League Championship Series, but that wasn’t the only controversial moment he was involved in this fall.
Having Machado become involved in controversial moments when he’s running to first base appears to be a thing, because that’s exactly what happened in Game 4 of the World Series on Saturday night.
Machado was attempting to run out a grounder in the ninth inning of the game, with his team trailing the Red Sox 9-6.  He was seen having an unnatural motion as he made his way toward first base, though. Machado’s left foot moved away from the center of the bag, and actually caught Pearce’s heel.

Not only that, Machado also blew a bubble at Pearce, which almost looked like part of a potential troll job of sorts.

World Series. Game 4. Game on the line.

Luckily, Pearce was OK, and he remained in the game. But Machado is finding himself in too many controversial moments for this extracurricular physical contact to be purely coincidental. Other MLB’ers are already labeling him a “dirty player” as is.

Kirk Gibson, Dennis Eckersley throw out tandem ceremonial first pitch before World Series game (Video)

Category : Dodgers , MLB

Two of the greatest pitchers in MLB history managed to get Game 4 of the World Series started on Saturday night.
Dodgers legend Kirk Gibson teamed up with a former counterpart, Red Sox stud pitcher Dennis Eckersley, and the two combined forces to create a pretty awesome ceremonial first pitch.
Gibson threw a strike to Eckersley at home plate before Game 4 at Dodger Stadium began, and it was pretty awesome.

Eck and Kirk reunite 30 years later.

Eckersley later posted a photo showing the two of them watching the game from their seats.

The two didn’t exactly recreate the magic from Game 1 of the 1988 World Series, but they did their best to bring the ballpark to life 30 years later.

Look: Kobe Bryant hits up World Series game, hangs out with Clayton Kershaw and others

Category : Dodgers , MLB , NBA

One of the greatest athletes to ever suit up and play for a Los Angeles professional sports team hit up Game 4 of the World Series at Dodger Stadium.
The Dodgers were hoping to tie the series against the Red Sox up at two games apiece, after pulling off a thrilling 3-2 win on Friday night, via an 18th-inning home run from Max Muncy.
Lakers legend Kobe Bryant hit up the game, and he was seen in the clubhouse hanging with a number of Dodgers players beforehand. Here he is talking to and dapping up Clayton Kershaw.

Look: Alex Morgan spotted at Dodgers-Red Sox World Series game

Category : Dodgers , MLB

One of the greatest female Olympians of all-time was at Dodger Stadium for Game 4 of the World Series on Saturday night.
United States Women’s National Team star striker Alex Morgan announced that she’d be enjoying the action between the Dodgers and Red Sox on Saturday.

Comin for ya @Dodgers
— Alex Morgan (@alexmorgan13) October 27, 2018

Sure enough, she was there. Morgan was spotted by TV cameras.

I don't think Alex Morgan wants that camera on her lol
— Matt (@Letterbomber) October 28, 2018

It’s never known exactly who will be spotted at a popular sporting event in the Los Angeles area. Apparently, it was Morgan who was seen in the suites at Dodger Stadium, which makes sense, given that she grew up in the Los Angeles suburbs.

Manny Machado caught admiring possible home run, still flipped bat anyway

Category : Dodgers

Dodgers slugger Manny Machado has been known to appreciate his work on the baseball diamond, but sometimes he takes it a bit too far.
That’s what happened when he came to the plate in the bottom of the sixth inning during Game 3 of the World Series on Friday night, with two out. Machado took a giant cut at a breaking ball from Red Sox reliever Joe Kelly, but got underneath the ball.
It appeared that Machado initially thought he hit the ball into the stands, as he was seen admiring it, before eventually flipping his bat and jogging toward first base. The problem was that the ball hit off the wall and stayed in the park, holding Machado to a single, rather than an extra-base hit.

That was a pretty epic bat flip for a routine single, especially since an end-of-inning-out followed just a few pitches later. Just imagine if Machado had actually managed to hit a home run. His bat would’ve been thrown so high that it still wouldn’t have landed yet.

Look: This massive lightning bolt lit up Fenway Park before Game 1 of World Series

Category : Dodgers , MLB , Red Sox , Take a Look

The first game of the 2018 Fall Classic at Fenway Park was lit — literally — thanks to an extremely small strike zone from home-plate umpire Tim Timmons.
Not only that, the sky was lit as well before the game, due to Mother Nature’s influence on baseball’s biggest stage of the season.
There were thunderstorms in the forecast, and, sure enough, they came — as advertised. Check out this one particular bolt of lightning, which looked like something out of a movie.

The stands were cleared as a result, but fans were allowed to return to their seats for the first pitch, scheduled for just after 8:05 p.m. ET.

Watch: Cody Bellinger launches bat after failing on key plate appearance

Category : Dodgers , Take a Look

Dodgers slugger Cody Bellinger has struggled throughout the playoffs, and his issues at the plate appeared to take a toll on him in Monday’s game against the Brewers.
The two teams squared off in the pivotal Game 3 of the National League Championship Series, as often, the team that wins that particular showdown goes on to advance. And with the game in Dodger Stadium, and Walker Buehler on the bump, the home team was a sizable favorite to win.
The Brewers took it to the Dodgers, though, and scored a run right out of the gate. They took a 4-0 lead into the ninth inning, but the Dodgers got to closer Jeremy Jeffress, with men on second and third, and Bellinger at the plate. Unfortunately, he hacked at the first pitch, and popped the ball up.
Here’s how he reacted.

Watch: Yasiel Puig shatters bat over knee after key strikeout

Category : Dodgers , MLB , Trending Now

Dodgers slugger Yasiel Puig has struggled immensely during the MLB playoffs so far.
He has four hits in 18 at-bats, but what’s even worse has been his inability to put the ball in play coming up with men on base in key moments.
Puig had the chance to put Game 2 of the NLCS out of reach in the top of the 7th inning, with the bases loaded and no outs. The Dodgers trailed by two runs at the time, and they were in need of a big hit.
Instead, Puig struck out, which did the team no good at all. He responded by breaking his bat over his knee afterward.

The bat was innocent, Yasiel.pic.twitter.com/Vtvt4qO17v
— Sporting News (@sportingnews) October 13, 2018

That was an appropriate reaction, as Puig hacked at a pitch (essentially Ball 3) that was nowhere near the strike zone.
