Bellinger suffers injury in Dodgers' win (1:08)

ESPN Stats and Information  

The Dodgers beat the Tigers 3-0 on Saturday to improve to 87-34 this season. Only two teams have gotten to 87 wins faster in the expansion era (since 1961) - the 1998 Yankees and 2001 Mariners. The Mariners tied the major-league record with 116 wins that season.

Bradford Doolittle ESPN Staff Writer 

The only thing that changes for the Dodgers from day to day is how they win, not whether they win. On Saturday, it was a 3-0 whitewashing of the Tigers. Hyun-Jin Ryu threw five scoreless innings and three relievers tacked on four more. In his first game for LA, Curtis Granderson went 0 for 4 but reached on an error and scored the game's first run. The Dodgers have won six straight, 21 of 24 and 52 of 61. Now at 53 games over .500, it's getting kind of ridiculous.

Bellinger sprains ankle, won't start Sunday

Dodgers rookie Cody Bellinger sprained his right ankle as he made a catch at the warning track and had to leave Saturday's game against the Tigers. The team said he was day-to-day.

The Dodgers announced that Cody Bellinger has a mild right ankle sprain and is listed as day to day. Bellinger turned the ankle running down a fly ball on the warning track in right field in the sixth but was able to finish the inning. Yasiel Puig pinch hit for him in the seventh.

Yasiel Puig is on deck to bat for Cody Bellinger in the seventh, so maybe the ankle the Dodgers' star rookie turned hasn't loosened up. Will update when we get more info. It's still scoreless. Detroit's Michael Fulmer has limited LA to two hits through 6 1/3 innings.

Bradford Doolittle ESPN Staff Writer 

We're through six scoreless innings in Detroit between the Dodgers and Tigers. Scary moment for LA in the bottom of the sixth when Cody Bellinger turned his right ankle while running down Nick Castellanos' fly ball to the right field warning track. He limped around for a minute under the watch of manager Dave Roberts and the trainer but remained in the game.

Another day, another Dodgers' win

On Friday night, the Dodgers beat the Tigers 8-5 to extend their winning streak to five games while maintaining their historic pace.

Here's the starting lineup for the Dodgers today, featuring Curtis Granderson for the first time.

With Curtis Granderson joining the Dodgers, looks like Joc Pederson may be the odd man out. His locker in the visiting clubhouse at Comerica Park is empty. Pederson started Friday's game, showing off a new batting stance meant to help him shake out of an offensive funk.

Can Dodgers help Granderson get off WS schneid?

After being traded from the New York Mets to the Los Angeles Dodgers on Friday night, OF Curtis Granderson finally has a chance to break his World Series drought.

Tristan H. Cockcroft ESPN Senior Writer 

Joc Pederson's playing time seems most logically in jeopardy following Curtis Granderson's acquisition by the Dodgers, as Pederson was struggling mightily, batting .156/.253/.312 in 28 games since the All-Star break. Pederson wasn't widely owned in ESPN leagues (16.9 percent), but I've often reminded how at-bats are precious in "only" leagues. NL-only owners could consider Brandon Nimmo, who should see a corresponding rise in playing time. Nimmo's year has been disappointing but it makes a lot of sense for the Mets to play him somewhat regularly to see what they've got for 2018.
