LOS ANGELES (AP) — Clayton Kershaw couldn't rescue the Dodgers from the brink of World Series elimination, and now the pitcher regarded as the best of his generation might be on his way out of Los Angeles.Down 3-1 to the Boston Red Sox, the Dodgers turned to their three-time NL Cy Young Award winner to deliver a victory and force the best-of-seven Series back to Boston.Instead, it was another postseason shellacking for Kershaw.The left-hander gave up three home runs, including a two-run shot by Steve Pearce in the first inning, and the Dodgers lost 5-1 on Sunday night."It just hurts worse when you make it all the way and get second place," Kershaw said quietly.The Dodgers glumly watched the opposition celebrate a World Series championship on their field for the second straight year. Last October, it was Houston partying at Chavez Ravine after winning Game 7 by the same 5-1 score.This time, the Dodgers only lasted five games."It might not be a personnel thing," Kershaw said of his tea...

Sat Oct 2705:05Out of seats, into spotlight, Buehler delivers for Dodgers
LOS ANGELES (AP) — From upper-deck spectator to October ace.Walker Buehler looked nothing like the rookie he is, giving the Los Angeles Dodgers the pitching performance they desperately needed in Game 3 of the World Series.With the Dodgers facing a 2-0 deficit, Buehler shut out the Boston Red Sox for seven innings, holding the highest-scoring team in the majors to two measly singles. Los Angeles finally won 3-2 on Max Muncy's home run off Nathan Eovaldi in the 18th, ending the longest game in postseason history after 7 hours, 20 minutes."I was just doing anything you can think to try and bring a little luck. I would hang out in certain places and move when that didn't work," Buehler said.The right-hander threw a career-high 108 pitches. After he was pulled, closer Kenley Jansen gave up a tying home run to Jackie Bradley Jr. in the eighth, and the game went on and on.A year ago, Buehler and his younger sister watched Game 2 of the World Series against Houston from an upper level at Do...

LOS ANGELES (AP) — When Kenley Jansen gave up Jackie Bradley Jr.'s dramatic tying homer in the eighth inning Friday night, the Los Angeles Dodgers' bullpen apparently had failed at a crucial time in another World Series.As it turned out, Game 3 wasn't even half over.LA's up-and-down bullpen shook off the disappointment of Bradley's quiet circling of the bases and provided several hours of redemption in an epic 18-inning affair.The Dodgers' eight relievers pitched 11 collective innings of five-hit ball in the longest World Series game ever, largely shutting down Boston's powerhouse offense after rookie starter Walker Buehler dazzled the Red Sox with seven innings of two-hit excellence."The way that our guys, our pen, got the outs that they needed, they did a heck of a job," Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said. "So you look at tomorrow, after playing 7 hours and 20 minutes, our pen is in pretty good shape."Jansen still blew his attempt at a six-out save in his third major World Series fa... [More]
