Yasiel Puig and the Dodgers persevered through the team's most futile attempt to ever hit a baseball Sunday, with the rookie finally crushing an 11th-inning home run into the left-field pavilion. The smash capped a Dodgers' record of 20 strikeouts, the most in franchise history since 1900. With the victory, the first-place Dodgers (56-48) won for the 26th time in 32 games and they're now 9-1 since the All-Star break. BOXSCORE: Dodgers 1, Reds 0 Every Dodgers starter struck out, with Puig, Adrian Gonzalez, Hanley Ramirez and catcher Tim Federowicz each whiffing three times.

Joey Votto and Matt Cain aren't going anywhere. Their teams made sure of that Monday, making both men extremely rich in the process.

Zack Greinke took an extra moment to huddle with Dodgers catcher A.J. Ellis on Thursday night after throwing a wild pitch to Cincinnati Reds slugger Jay Bruce. Greinke, confident with his team in a six-game winning streak and unbeaten himself in five decisions at Dodger Stadium, told Ellis he believed he could retire Bruce with a curveball. "I thought it was the right pitch, just didn't work," Greinke said after his sixth-inning offering was smacked over the left-center field wall for Bruce's 21st home run of the season in the Reds' 5-2 victory.

CINCINNATI - Manager Mike Scioscia had the matchup he wanted. Reliever Scott Downs made the pitch he wanted. First baseman Albert Pujols got the ground ball he wanted. For so much that seemed to go right for the Angels on the decisive play of Wednesday night's game, so much went wrong, the net effect a 5-4 walk-off loss to the Cincinnati Reds in Great American Ball Park. With Shin-Soo Choo - who was hit by a Downs pitch to start the ninth - on second, one out and first base open, Scioscia had Downs, the veteran left-hander, pitch to one of baseball's most prolific sluggers, left-handed-hitting Joey Votto, the 2010 National League most valuable player.

Hey, every day deserves a good laugh, so today we bring you … James Loney! Come on, you're smiling already. And that's just off his history. Now everyone's favorite underachiever as a Dodger is able to bring a fresh chuckle. And not because of his sometimes zany personality. Guess who has the second-highest batting average in all of baseball? Who has the fifth-highest slugging percentage among all first basemen? That's right, the beleaguered Loney. Loney was included in the blockbuster trade for Nick Punto last summer , though he apparently impressed the Red Sox as much as the Dodgers the last couple of years.

CINCINNATI - From the time Clayton Kershaw showed up in the Dodgers' spring-training camp as a 19-year-old, there were signals he was destined for stardom that went beyond his electric fastball and knee-buckling curveball. There was something inside that distinguished him from the other players. That something was on display for a national television audience Sunday night, when Kershaw took the ball and his injured right hip to the mound at Great American Ball Park. Kershaw's performance in a 5-3 victory over the Cincinnati Reds was far from his most dominant, but was among his most courageous.
