Tying on the 'Feed' Bag

If there was any doubt that the Dodgers are going to win the National League West, it rode out of sight Sunday when Yasiel Puig hit his 11th home run in the bottom of the 11th inning to give Los Angeles a 1-0 win over the Cincinnati Reds.
What was amazing was that prior to Puig's Big Fly, 20 Dodgers had struck out against Reds pitching, setting a club record for Ks. Puig's home run was the Dodgers' first in four games, after the team had hit a slew of them on its last trip to Washington and Toronto.
Any team that can strike out 20 times and still win, plus gain a game on the second-place Arizona Diamondbacks, has a special glow around it.
Next up for the Dodgers are the New York Yankees, who come to town on Tuesday.


add 'Feed' bag: Meanwhile in Oakland, the slumping Angels fell further behind the AL West leading A's, losing three of four games, while learning that Albert Pujols is probably out for the rest of the season with a foot injury. With Pujols sidelined and Josh Hamilton hitting far below what was expected of him, owner Arte Moreno's hands must shake each time he signs the two players' paychecks.


last add 'Feed' bag: If Lane Kiffin needed any extra motivation for his USC football team and the upcoming season, he got it last week when the media voted the Trojans to finish in third place  in the Pac-12 South Division, behind cross-town rival UCLA and Arizona State.
