Sando: Robert Quinn is in an odd spot

The No. 69 ranking isn't bad, but Quinn wound up ninth among edge rushers. That's a far cry from where he was two years ago. But as Mike Sando notes, Quinn has the talent to move up. #NFLRank audit by position (Insider)

Hill quickly etches place in Dodger lore

Rich Hill tossed six scoreless innings in his first appearance for the Dodgers, a 1-0 win over the Giants on Wednesday. Only two other pitchers have started and beaten the Giants without allowing a run in their Dodgers debut: Dutch Henry (May 29, 1923) and Karl Spooner (Sept. 22, 1954), the Elias Sports Bureau reports.

Turner deciding factor in Dodgers' win

Justin Turner's fourth-inning homer on Wednesday provided all the scoring in the Dodgers' 1-0 win over the Giants. Turner is the fifth player to homer for the Dodgers in a 1-0 game against the Giants, and all of them did so in the last 32 seasons, per the Elias Sports Bureau.

The Giants held a commanding 6.5-game lead at the All-Star break, but after losing the first two games of this series to the Dodgers are now 3 games back -- a season-high lead for L.A. The Giants are 26th in the majors in scoring since the break and the Dodgers are first. If Giants fans are feeling a little anxious, they should. The Dodgers are better right now. Without Clayton Kershaw.
