Dodgers news ...

The Dodgers defeated the Cubs on Sunday Night Baseball, hanging on to win by just a thread. You can read the TBLA game recap here.

The Los Angeles Times writes about how Alex Verdugo made small adjustments to overcome his 22-game slump.

“When I get a little too pull-happy or my shoulder starts flying out, my swing starts breaking down,” the left-handed-hitting Verdugo said. “I get frustrated because you’re like, ‘What happened?’ And you look at video and you realize, ‘I got way too big instead of just trying to hit a line drive.’ ”

Verdugo tried to stick to his normal approach and to not beat himself up. Even the best hitters struggle, he kept reminding himself.

In case you haven’t heard, Hyun-Jin Ryu is really good.
