DENVER — Behind the desk in the manager's office, Don Mattingly mockingly pumped his fist. The Dodgers won the first game in the Guggenheim era. But it was messy, as the Dodgers nearly blew a seven-run lead against the Colorado Rockies on Tuesday night. When embattled closer Javy Guerra struck out Carlos Gonzalez to secure the 7-6 win, there was a man on third base. Told his new bosses would probably have trouble sleeping that night if they watched the game, Mattingly laughed and said, "That's what they get. " This was a stereotypically wild night at Coors Field, which started with the first-place Dodgers (17-7)

What started as a welcoming party for the current top prospect in baseball ended as a celebration of the top player in the game today. Bryce Harper, the 19-year-old outfielder, collected his first hit in his major league debut with the Washington Nationals on Saturday night. He drove in his first run on a ninth-inning sacrifice fly that ended a tie. But this game belonged to Matt Kemp, who drove a fastball by Tom Gorzelanny high over the center-field wall in the 10th inning, lifting the Dodgers to a 4-3 victory over the Nationals.

Frank McCourt will remain the owner of the Dodgers for at least one more night. The sale of the team was expected to close Monday. However, the hope is that the deal can close on Tuesday, according to two people familiar with the sale process. McCourt has agreed to sell the Dodgers for a record $2.15 billion to Guggenheim Baseball, a group fronted by Magic Johnson and incoming team President Stan Kasten. The deal is financed by Chicago-based Guggenheim Financial, and that company's chief executive, Mark Walter, is in line to become the Dodgers' new controlling owner.

The Dodgers have finalized an agreement with their first-round draft pick, infielder Corey Seager of Northwest Cabarrus High in Concord, N.C. Seager will receive a bonus of $2.35 million, according to people familiar with the deal who spoke under the condition of anonymity because it isn't expected to be announced until Saturday. Seager was selected with the 18th overall pick, which was designated a slot value of $1.95 million by the commissioner's office. The deadline to sign draft picks is July 13. Seager, 18, is the younger brother of Seattle Mariners third baseman Kyle Seager . He was the first position player to be taken with the Dodgers' top pick since first baseman James Loney in 2002.

PHOENIX - Kenley Jansen will draw a higher salary this season than the player many consider to be the best in baseball. Jansen will earn $512,000 -- or, $2,000 more than Mike Trout of the Angels. The players' salaries are a reflection of the service time the players have accrued. Jansen has more than two years of major league service time; Trout has a little more than one. Players with fewer than three years of major league service time have no leverage when negotiating with their clubs and can be assigned a salary.

Texas 4, Dodgers 0 AT THE PLATE: Outfield prospect Yasiel Puig was one for three, beating out a seventh-inning grounder to shortstop for a single. Later that inning, he was caught stealing. "He did get 50% of our hits today," Manager Don Mattingly said. The other hit came from non-roster utilityman Alfredo Amezaga, who led off the game with a single to right. Amezaga was also caught stealing. ON THE MOUND: Left-hander J.P. Howell inherited a one-out, bases-loaded situation from Brandon League and limited the damage to one run. Javy Guerra returned from a mild groin injury to face two batters, striking out both.

Starting to think that nothing about Todd Coffey is going to be surprising this season. I mean, other than his current 36.00 ERA. Coffey, who conveniently came up with a sore knee when the Dodgers had to activate Ted Lilly on April 14, was activated - actually, the Dodgers press release referred to it as “reinstated” - on Monday prior to their game in Denver. The Dodgers had already sent right-hander Nathan Eovaldi down after Sunday's game, so once again, it's not like there was any suspense here.

Are you ready for the Dodgers' latest scare? Kenley Jansen was held out of the Dodgers last two games on Tuesday and Wednesday because of his heart condition. Jansen spent a month on the disabled list last season with an irregular heartbeat . He had to take blood thinners to get his condition under control and, with fear of possibly hemorrhaging, was not allowed to play. If it's the same situation now, Jansen would probably be lost for the rest of the season. Jansen would not address his condition with reporters after the Dodgers' 10-8 victory in Denver, and did not give the training staff permission to discuss it. The only information the team did release was that his heart problem was related to the one he experienced last season.
