Dodgers provide the drama, Scully the tears as L.A. wraps up fourth straight NL West title

latimes.com — The farewell to the baseball rocked Dodger Stadium with cheers. The farewell to Vin Scully drowned it in tears. In what was arguably the most perfect moment at Chavez Ravine since Kirk Gibson's 1988 home run, the Dodgers ended a sweaty Sunday afternoon with a stirring two-part final act that could only be believed in Hollywood.

When Scully is telling a story, it's only fair that the baseballs head foul

latimes.com — It has been the most compelling part of every Dodgers game for the past 67 years. A batter will step out of the box to adjust his gloves. The pitcher will step down from the mound to rub the ball. The umpire will take off his mask to wipe his brow.

Vin Scully is a voice for the ages

UCLA can't escape its past in stunning loss to No. 7 Stanford, 22-13

Clayton Kershaw is completely efficient, but he isn’t completely Kershaw

latimes.com — Cheers are plentiful, but breaths are held. The usual worship is there, but so is the unfamiliar worry. The pitcher with all the answers returned to the Dodger Stadium mound Monday night wearing the occasional unsettling question. What happened on that curve in the dirt? Why is that slider not always hitting the corner?

After 22 years, Rams' fans are loud and proud

latimes.com — This is what happens when you wait two decades for the return of your football team. You don't leave early. You stay to the sweltering end. You raise your sweaty souls above creaky Coliseum seats in the final moments of their homecoming game and you roar with hope and rage and history.

So far it's a bad deal for USC after a 27-10 loss to Stanford

latimes.com — It was an infamous question that once went both ways in this rivalry, a question exchanged at midfield by coaching greats Pete Carroll and Jim Harbaugh, a question that was actually a statement. "What's your deal?"
