Happy Mother’s Day!

MLB: Washington Nationals at Los Angeles Dodgers Kelvin Kuo-USA TODAY Sports

Dodgers news...

Walker Buehler had a killer night on Saturday. But the Nationals struck late in the game to overshadow his start. Read the game recap here.

It was Pups at the Park night at Dodger Stadium on Saturday. More on that soon.

Bill Plaschke of the Los Angeles Times on Jaime Jarrin and the passing of his wife, Blanca.

“Shortly after her death he received a phone call from Vin Scully, who understood the pain of losing a wife. Scully gave him some advice that confirmed Jaime’s instincts. He knew what he had to do.

Jaime phoned the Dodgers and asked if he could return to the booth and go back on the road full time. They said yes before he could finish the sentence.

‘When I’m doing a ballgame, it’s the only time I feel normal,’’ he said. ‘I will now carry Blanca’s spirit with me, to every city, every game, in the seat right next to me.’” —Bill Plaschke, Los Angeles Times
