Dodgers finish first half with a bang, 9-3

By Marquis McClure, published on Jul 9, 2007

After stunning the Dodgers in the first two games of their weekend series, surely the Florida Marlins were thinking sweep. In their 14-year existence, sweeping the Dodgers in Los Angeles is something no Marlin team has ever done. And after Sunday, they still haven't. Mark Hendrickson pitched five strong innings and the offense gave him all the support he'd need in the first two as L.A. snagged their only win of the weekend over Florida, 9-3, on a picture-perfect Sunday afternoon at Dodger Stadium. The win, coupled with the Padres loss to the Atlanta Braves Sunday night, brings the Dodgers... (more)

Dodgers honor Robinson's legacy with 9-3 win

By Marquis McClure, published on Apr 16, 2007

Nine runs, over a dozen hits and five stolen bases. Once again, number 42 comes through for the Dodgers in a big way. In a game where the Dodgers commemorated the 60th anniversary of Jackie Robinson breaking Major League Baseball's color barrier, they honored his memory in perhaps the best way possible--with a 9-3 win over the visiting San Diego Padres before a sold-out crowd at Dodger Stadium. And the way they did it would have made Jackie proud. The occasion was marked with a pre-game ceremony in which Jackie's widow Rachel Robinson, baseball commissioner Bud Selig and Dodger broadcaster... (more)

Dodgers hit four straight homers in comeback win

By Marquis McClure, published on Sep 19, 2006

Simply put, it was a win that couldn't be described with just one adjective. In what has to be one of the greatest comeback wins in Dodger history, the Boys in Blue put forth the type of offensive performance unseen in over a generation and reclaimed first place from the San Diego Padres, 11-10, in front of the largest Monday night crowd ever at Dodger Stadium. Those who didn't leave early were treated to a storybook ending in the bottom of the 10th inning, thanks to a two-run homer by Dodger first baseman Nomar Garciaparra, who drove in centerfielder Kenny Lofton. But the storybook... (more)

Bruins, Trojans kickoff season victoriously

By Marquis McClure, published on Sep 4, 2006

It may have been difficult to tell, but they'd never done this before. Before Saturday, neither Ben Olson nor John David Booty had much experience at the helm for UCLA or USC (respectively), much less started a game. By day's end, though, both had led their teams to impressive victories. In his first start for the Bruins, Olson completed 25 of 33 passes for 318 yards and threw for three touchdowns in UCLA's 31-10 victory over visiting Utah Saturday afternoon at the Rose Bowl. Not only was it Olson's first start, Saturday was the first time he had taken a snap in a game since committing to... (more)

Maddux, Dodgers beat Reds in series sweep

By Marquis McClure, published on Aug 31, 2006

Greg Maddux picked up his 330th career victory and led the Dodgers to a milestone of their own as they beat the Cincinnati Reds, 7-3, in a series sweep Wednesday night. The win set a franchise record for the Dodgers. Their 21 wins in August are the most in any month since moving to Los Angeles in 1958. And their 71 victories on the season match their total for all last year. Maddux was his usual efficient self, throwing 77 pitches over seven innings, 54 of them strikes. He also made a couple of great defensive plays--turning a double play off a comebacker in the second and making the final... (more)
