Dodgers news ...

Dodgers clinched another series win with their back-to-back walk-off win against the Rockies on Saturday. Read the TBLA recap here.

And the fact that it was a pair of rookie teammates to do that in back-to-back games was also newsworthy.

The last time four different Dodgers hit a walk-off home run was in 1990. Hubie Brooks, Kal Daniels, Mike Sharperson and José González. The last time the Dodgers hit four walk-off home runs in a season was in 2009. The difference was Andre Ethier hit all of those that season.

Perhaps this will mean another move today

Around the league ...

MLB.com writer Mark Sheldon writes about Derek Dietrich getting hit six times during his current series against the Milwaukee.

National League Rookie of the Year contender Pete Alonso hit his 26th home run on Saturday which put him in company with a Mets great and a the first player to hit 70 home runs in a season.

Albert Pujols got a standing ovation prior to his first plate appearance on Friday night. Then on Saturday, he got one that most opposing players never receive. MLB.COM writer Rhett Bollinger wrote about that moment here.
