CINCINNATI - Clayton Kershaw will start the Dodgers' series finale against the Cincinnati Reds on Sunday, according to a team spokesman. Kershaw hasn't pitched since Sept. 11 because of a right hip injury. Kershaw and the Dodgers haven't revealed many details of the injury, including whether it might require off-season surgery. But an orthopedic surgeon Kershaw visited Tuesday assured him that he wouldn't do any further damage to the hip by pitching, according to the team. This could be the Dodgers' last stand.

Yasiel Puig made himself the story again Saturday. A day after he was benched for showing up late to batting practice, Puig slid headfirst into first base when he didn't have to, leaving the Dodgers waiting for X-rays of his left thumb to be reviewed by their medical staff. Puig played the final six innings of the Dodgers' 7-2 defeat to the San Francisco Giants at Dodger Stadium, but could be sidelined for the series finale Sunday as the Dodgers try to avoid a three-game sweep.

The Dodgers have won every game since June 22 that Chris Capuano hasn't started. Unfortunately for them, it was Capuano (2-6) on the mound for their series finale against the Rockies on Thursday. He lasted just 4 1/3 innings, allowing six runs (five earned) and seven hits as the Dodgers recorded just their second loss in their last 12 games, falling 9-5 at Coors Field in Colorado. Yasiel Puig and Adrian Gonzalez drove in runs in the sixth inning to pull the Dodgers within four, but that was as close as they would get. Hanley Ramirez struck out swinging to strand Gonzalez at second.

Reporting from Pittsburgh — Jon Garland got his first hit of the season, a two-out, opposite-field single that drove in Dioner Navarro and put the Dodgers ahead, 1-0. But officially, that hit never happened. Neither did the two no-hit innings Garland pitched. The Dodgers' series finale against the Pittsburgh Pirates at PNC Park was called off after two innings because of rain. The contest will be rescheduled, most likely on July 14, the last day of the All-Star break.

As self-destructions go, the Cal State Fullerton baseball team did a pretty solid job Sunday night. The Titans made five errors and allowed three runs to score on wild pitches in an 11-8 nonconference loss to Stanford in front of about 1,000 spectators and an ESPN television audience at Titan Field. Fullerton started with a six-run first inning, and the Titans still led, 8-5, before a mistake-filled eighth.

With only three episodes to go in "The Wire's" final run, the biggest question remaining is simple: Are you in, or are you out? Because much of the show's final season -- the believability-straining fake serial killer, the ax-grinding and thinly drawn newsroom story, an overall feeling of the whole season being rushed -- has added up to a somewhat disappointing swan song so far, at least when compared with the last four seasons.

A lot of "Twin Peaks" fans were complaining Thursday about the season-ending episode that failed to provide a definitive answer to the question of who killed Laura Palmer. Instead, it left most of its major characters in cliff-hanging situations that won't be resolved until fall. The producers and ABC--which hyped Wednesday's program with ads promising "the shocking finale"--maintained that they had never said the mystery would be resolved this season.

There once existed an era in which cable network AMC was not synonymous with prestige dramas. a time that could be categorized as B.M.M. - Before “Mad Men.” And that's what Jon Hamm, the man at the center of the drama that would usher in a new age for AMC, bears in mind as the show's farewell tour gets underway. Hamm was on hand Friday night at the show's PaleyFest panel in Hollywood - alongside costars Vincent Kartheiser, Elisabeth Moss, Christina Hendricks, Robert Morse, Jessica Pare, and Kiernan Shipka - where reflection was an overriding theme, particularly since it's not easy talking about the future of the vigilantly guarded series.  PHOTOS: Preview the final season of 'Mad Men' Pointing to his introductory moments on the set of the pilot, better remembered as “the knee-trembling abject of terror,” Hamm underscored just how much risk rested in those initial scenes.

The Boston Red Sox were not the only winners when they triumphed over the St. Louis Cardinals in Wednesday's Game 6 of the World Series to score baseball's biggest prize and the world champion crown. The other big winner was Fox, which broadcast the Fall Classic. The finale pulled in 19.2 million viewers, registering as the highest-rated baseball game since Game 7 of the 2011 World Series. The audience for the game, which will be remembered as the moment when the Red Sox won the series for the first time in 95 years, far surpassed the massive viewing average of 14.4 million total viewers that tuned on the previous showdown Monday.

The World Series ended Wednesday night with a victory for the Boston Red Sox and what looks to be the most-watched Fall Classic game since 2011.  The Red Sox handily beat the St. Louis Cardinals in Game 6 to win the series, and the match-up drew about 18 million viewers, according to early numbers from Nielsen, which will likely change later in the day when time-zone-adjusted figures are released. Viewership tallies for live sports typically rise in the final statistics.  Still, that tops any game from the 2012 series -- the lowest-rated ever -- in which the San Francisco Giants swept the Detroit Tigers in four games.

Rick Honeycutt lied. Ricky Nolasco won't start Game 4 of the National League division series Monday, as the Dodgers pitching coach said the night before. Clayton Kershaw will. Kershaw will be starting on three-days' rest for the first time in his career as the Dodgers attempt to close out the best-of-five series against the Atlanta Braves. The Dodgers aren't taking any chances; the decision to start Kershaw on short rest was probably based on Nolasco's atrocious late-season form.

They stood. When the screen went to black, behind the haunting play-out of antihero extraordinaire Walter White against Badfinger's "Baby Blue," the crowd at the screening of Sunday's series finale of "Breaking Bad" at Hollywood Forever Cemetery wrestled out from their lawn chairs and blankets en masse. They clapped, they whistled, they hooted, they hollered, they cried, they took deep breaths. And they stood. A standing ovation for their show. "It was perfect," said Stefanie Turner, from Phoenix, with teary eyes.
