Rams ILB Mark Barron is "not very likely" to play Sunday against the Chargers, coach Sean McVay said Wednesday. Barron was a limited participant through training camp, did not play in the preseason and was sidelined for Week 1 and Week 2 as he deals with an Achilles issue.

The Rams signed WR KhaDarel Hodge to the active roster from the practice squad on Wednesday, giving depth to a position that was down to four receivers with Pharoh Cooper and Mike Thomas being placed on IR. They also activated RG Jamon Brown from the roster-exemption list. DE Marcus Martin, who was with the team during the preseason, has been signed to the practice squad.

Roberts: Dodgers playing 'our best baseball'

The Dodgers beat the division-rival Rockies for the second straight night on Tuesday, pushing their NL West lead to 1 1/2 games and prompting manager Dave Roberts to say "Things are coming together at the right time."

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts believes his team is playing its best baseball right now. "It's not really going out on a limb," he said. "We've been sort of inconsistent all year, but things are coming together at the right time."

Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen: "The thing I like about this year is that nothing is easy for us. We're going to really have to earn it to get there. I like our chances if we get to the playoffs because everything we got, we've had to earn."

Chris Taylor pointed his right index finger to the sky as he sprinted to first base and Dodger Stadium began to shake. A walk-off home run. The Dodgers win, 3-2, in 10, and are 1 1/2 up on the Rockies in the NL West.

The Dodgers won't have one clear setup man for Kenley Jansen, but they would love to at least narrow down the group. Looks like it's Kenta Maeda, Scott Alexander and Dylan Floro, in no particular order.

Clayton Kershaw issued five walks, one shy of his season high, but allowed only one earned run through seven innings. He has labored more than ever this year, but he keeps finding a way. His ERA is 2.31 in 16 starts since coming off the DL.

Dodgers 3B Justin Turner atoned for his error in a big way, diving left to snare a hard grounder off the bat of DJ LeMahieu, saving a run and ending the seventh inning. Still tied at 2.
