This past weekend’s matchup between the Padres and Dodgers was supposed to be a must-watch series with San Diego drastically improving their roster with hopes of challenging Los Angeles in the division or at the very least seize a wild card. However, things didn’t go as expected for the Friars as the Boys in Blue did their job and swept the Padres to extend their win streak to 8. With the Minnesota Twins arriving at Chavez Ravine for a two-game series, the Dodgers extended their streak to 9, but that wasn’t the only big story of the day.
Let’s take a look at some top stories of Tuesday.
As monumental as Vin Scully was, he never liked being in the spotlight so it’s understandable that his funeral services were kept from the public. The long-time Dodgers’ play-by-play man had his service at a church in Los Angeles, very privately.
Dustin May should soon be the next Dodger to return from a lengthy stay on the IL, but in a different role than he’s become used to.
A couple of Thompson brothers were spotted at Clayton Kershaw’s charity event.
We’ve seen prospects such as James Outman and Miguel Vargas rise to the top, but keep an eye out for a familiar name.
Speaking of prospects, the Dodgers signed a former top prospect of their neighbors down the 5 freeway.
Should we be concerned about Clayton Kershaw’s injury? One expert believes so.
The infamous Carlos Correa returned to Dodger Stadium, but as a Minnesota Twin and yet fans still let him have it.
After eventually needing a stint on the IL, Justin Turner finally returned against the Twins.
The Dodgers avoided a massive cost by not trading for Juan Soto.
