    Walker Buehler’s return to action Thursday night was a success; the Dodgers’ right-hander pitched four scoreless innings against the Oakland A’s, allowing only one hit while striking out six batters and walking just one.
    The Dodgers now might be entering the postseason with five healthy starting pitchers, one or two of whom could be used as long relievers by manager Dave Roberts.

    #1 Brian’s Song was on cable 2 weeks ago and I was able to watch it start to finish. Terrific story of Sayers and Piccolo”s friendship. He was an amazing man and athlete.
    #4 Bet the team mates aren’t too happy about that.

    That’s awesome for SV, getting 87 kids out to their first meeting…

    It sucks for the rest of LA County, though, who must follow the county guidelines and have small cohort numbers and social distance…I guess Baldwin Park is in it’s own county making it’s own rules.
