Gordon ready to 'seize' opportunity

Dee Gordon is ready for another chance, this time at second base: "I just want an opportunity. They've given it to me, and I'm going to seize it this time. I didn't sieze it in the past, I was too immature, didn't know myself."

Greinke starts Freeway Series opener

Zack Greinke, who will start the second game of the series in San Diego on Tuesday, starts the opener tonight against the Halos.

Kershaw vs. Wacha, round 2
