Sometimes you just can't win. Clayton Kershaw said he has been bothered since Friday with a sore hip, but insisted he felt good enough to start Sunday against the Giants. Despite the significance of the game, however, the Dodgers elected to go the cautious route and scratched the reigning National League Cy Young Award winner. Kershaw is now tentatively scheduled to start Tuesday in Arizona. The Dodgers are off Monday. It does, however, line him up to start the opener against the Giants in the Dodgers' final regular-season series.

"Breaking Bad," the sweet little show that captured the hearts of approximately one-fortieth of a nation (more like one-thirtieth, if we reckon by the finale), sent itself into history Sunday with a well-balanced episode that stayed on mission, touching themes present since its first season and consonant even with what we might characterize as the series' faults. (Quirks might be a better word.) I found it intellectually and aesthetically satisfying without being particularly moved by it -- most of these characters stopped being real to me some time ago -- and send congratulations to all concerned from my corner of casual investment.

Andre Ethier opened his right hand, revealing a blister on his palm that popped three days earlier. The area of raw skin was about the size of a quarter, the exposed region large enough to cause him significant discomfort in his bottom hand when holding a bat. The ruptured blister was the latest annoyance in what has been a rough few months for the two-time All-Star outfielder. Ethier was batting a season-best .333 on May 30. He had played 63 games since then entering the Dodgers' series finale against the San Francisco Giants on Wednesday.

The regular season is almost over and Carl Crawford is still healthy. "I'm just grateful," Crawford said. This time last year, Crawford was recovering from reconstructive elbow surgery. "Just to be able play baseball again, to be able to do what I've done all my life, not having to worry about getting hurt," Crawford said. Crawford played in his 106th game Thursday. He played in only 31 last season for the Boston Red Sox, who traded him to the Dodgers days after his operation.

That sore shoulder that Matt Kemp kept denying was giving him problems? Turns out it is giving him some serious problems. Enough that he's out of Saturday's game against the Giants in San Francisco as the Dodgers desperately try to hang on to their dwindling hopes of winning the division. Manager Don Mattingly said Kemp is scheduled to have a contrast MRI on his shoulder Saturday, which will also cause him to miss Sunday's series finale. Kemp has been mired in a 3-for-30 slump since crashing full speed into the Coors Field wall on Aug. 28. Overall, he has 12 hits in his last 73 at-bats (.164)

DENVER -- Adrian Gonzalez said earlier this year that after his 2010 operation, he never recovered the swing that made him one of baseball's premier power hitters. Gonzalez continues to insist that is the case, even after hitting a home run in each of the Dodgers' last three games. “Still a singles hitter,” he said. “If I happen to hit a home run, I'm going to take it, but I'm still a singles hitter.” Does he really believe that? “Do I believe that?” Gonzalez said.
