ESPN Stats and Information  

The Dodgers improved to 84-34 with their win against the White Sox Tuesday. According to Elias, they are the eighth team in the Live Ball era to reach 50 games above .500 before picking up their 35th loss. They are the first to do so since the 2001 Mariners started 80-30.

David Schoenfield ESPN Senior Writer 

If the Dodgers want to make a realistic push at chasing the single-season record of 116 wins, this is a week they need to clean up, with five games against the White Sox and Tigers. Good start. They broke open a 1-1 game with five runs in the eighth -- all with two outs. Alex Wood didn't improve to 15-1 as he got a no-decision, but he threw just 79 pitches in an efficient seven-inning outing.

UCLA QB Josh Rosen had no interest in rehashing the interview he gave to Bleacher Report or the reaction to it, "at this point I'm kind of just talking about camp," he said. Rosen also said he was hopeful to be in a position one day to make some significant decisions, when asked about Under Armour CEO Kevin Plank's decision to leave President Donald Trump's manufacturing council. Under Armour is in the first year of a $280 million apparel deal with UCLA.

RB Aaron Green, vying for one of the last roster spots, had hand surgery last week, Sean McVay said, but has practiced the last couple of days. WR Nelson Spruce, and CBs Nickell Robey-Coleman and Kayvon Webster sat out practice today. So did the usuals (Tavon Austin, Andrew Donnal, Lance Dunbar, Samson Ebukam).

UCLA quarterback Josh Rosen spoke publicly for the first time since training camp began, but chose not to discuss his interview published last week by Bleacher Report in which he questioned the relationship between academics and playing college football. Asked if he was surprised by any of the reaction to the interview, Rosen said: “No. I mean, Coach Mora kind of addressed the whole thing, but at this point I'm kind of just talking about camp.”

WR Sammy Watkins got action in 11-on-11 work today, eventually working with the first-team offense and even catching a pass across the middle from Jared Goff. Rams coach Sean McVay said he's "picking things up pretty quickly. It's a tough time to come in terms of where we're at in the installation because pretty much everything's in. We've gotten all of our situations, so, we're going a little bit faster than you'd be accustomed to early on. But I thought he picked things up well."

Rookie report from Rams camp: Nice play from safety John Johnson, jumping a deep-post route from Pharoh Cooper to intercept Jared Goff during 11-on-11 work. Rams coach Sean McVay recently identified Johnson as someone who "continues to emerge." He's been used on special teams and both safety positions.

Best play from Rams camp today actually came from Jared Goff. It was a beautiful deep throw to Josh Reynolds, perfectly in stride, right over a defender's outstretched arm for a touchdown. Came after a rough stretch for Goff during 11-on-11 work, so, a nice confidence boost for him.

OVERHEARD: LB Nick Dzubnar, who turned 26 years old Tuesday, gets an opportunity to compete for the starting middle linebacker job with Denzel Perryman out at least two months after ankle surgery. Dzubnar said he's more comfortable in a 4-3 defensive scheme because of his time in college at Cal-Poly. "This is my wheelhouse," he said. "A lot of zone drops, a lot of good eyes on the QB, you just break and play ball. I like it a lot".
