Tom Lasorda clearly was glad to be back at Dodger Stadium, even if it was only in civvies. The Los Angeles Dodgers manager, recuperating from an angioplasty after a mild heart attack, had a happy, poignant homecoming last night at Dodger Stadium. The Dodgers stopped a 30-inning scoreless streak when Dave Hansen's pinch-hit single in the 10th beat the San Diego Padres, 1-0. The win gave LA a two-game lead over the Padres in the National League West. Returning to the stadium for the first time since he was hospitalized June 24, Lasorda said his physicians haven't set a date for him to resume his managing duties.

Multimillionaire apartment developer Alan Casden has said that if he is successful in buying the Los Angeles Dodgers, he would move them to a new downtown ballpark and raze Dodger Stadium for new housing. The chairman and chief executive of Beverly Hills-based Casden Properties told the Los Angeles Times his proposal amounts to "a $1 billion commitment to the city. " Casden, who has offered a reported $400 million, is not the front-runner in the bidding for the Dodgers, according to sources close to the team.

Phillies players pulled on fresh new uniforms - complete with an arm patch commemorating the 50th anniversary of Jackie Robinson breaking the color barrier - and walked down the runway where the green grass and fresh blue paint of Dodger Stadium awaited yesterday. "Just walking into a big-league park this time of the year gives you a rush," Curt Schilling said. The club held its final workout before today's opener. The agenda included stretching, hitting and running the bases.

Once upon a time, it was the goal of Michael Mimbs to throw seven shutout innings in Dodger Stadium on some glorious Sunday afternoon. And sure enough, yesterday he did. Except it was against the Dodgers, not for them. He wound up pitching 7 1/3 terrific innings in the Phillies' 2-1 win over his former team. He gave up five hits and one run. And now he has more wins (four) than any Dodgers pitcher except the pitcher he beat, Ramon Martinez (now 6-4). But as good as this one had to feel, not even a truckful of pasta delivered personally by Tommy Lasorda could have made Mimbs admit it. "It feels good to get any kind of win in the major leagues," he said, through his soft Georgia drawl.

Cost estimates for a major renovation of Dodger Stadium are coming in much higher than expected, so executives from Fox Group are contemplating tearing down the 36-year-old ballpark and building a new one. "We've gotten to the point where we have the initial cost estimates, and the costs are substantial in terms of the renovation plan we're looking at," Bob Graziano, president and chief executive officer of the Dodgers, said in yesterday's Los...

Before the Dodgers took the field against the San Francisco Giants in Los Angeles last night, Roy Gleason threw out the first pitch - the first ball he's touched in Dodger Stadium since his rookie season 40 years ago. In September 1963, the stars aligned for Roy Gleason. Now, four decades to the month later, the cosmos has fallen into place again. In the meantime, Gleason's world exploded - first in Vietnam, where he sustained permanent injuries, then in a car accident that finally ended his baseball dream.

LOS ANGELES Dodgers fans and players are thrilled Magic Johnson is part of the group that bought the team, but many are wondering how Frank McCourt could remain connected to the franchise he was forced to sell. The Johnson group, largely funded by Guggenheim Capital chief executive officer Mark Walter, agreed to purchase the Dodgers, Dodger Stadium and a 50 percent stake in the parking lots surrounding the ballpark from McCourt for $2.15 billion. Sources with knowledge of the agreement told ESPN.com that the group will purchase half of the Dodger Stadium parking lots, deemed to have a total value of $300 million, with McCourt keeping the other half.

It was Fan Appreciation Night at Dodger Stadium. But, there wasn't much for the Los Angeles fans to appreciate. Vinny Castilla's two-run double that centerfielder Otis Nixon lost in the twilight highlighted a five-run, sixth-inning outburst and the Colorado Rockies went on to beat the fading Dodgers 10-5 last night. A crowd of 53,903 - the 10th sellout crowd at Dodger Stadium this season - attended the game, and the fans showed their displeasure by booing the home team on several occasions.

He's no longer "Bulldog," but Orel Hershiser showed he's still got some bite in a triumphant return to Dodger Stadium. Hershiser, a standout on the mound with the Los Angeles Dodgers for 12 years before leaving after the 1994 season, pitched six strong innings as the visiting San Francisco Giants beat the Dodgers, 5-3, last night. Hershiser was pitching at Dodger Stadium for a team other than the Dodgers for the first time in his career. He played for Los Angeles from 1983 to '94, and ranks 10th on the franchise's victory list with 134 wins.

Baseball loves to commemorate its history-making moments. But here's one notable event you won't find in any Cooperstown display. In the third inning of a Giants-Dodgers game on the night of May 16, 1970, Manny Mota swung late at a Gaylord Perry fastball. Somehow, the pesky L.A. outfielder managed to tick the pitch with the end of his bat. The misdirected projectile that resulted, later estimated to be traveling at more than 80 m.p.h., whizzed toward the visitors dugout. Seated two rows behind the dugout, 14-year-old Alan Fish never had a chance.

Knowing how to say goodbye to Chase Utley would be a lot easier if he ever really said hello. In that case, there would be stories to tell from his 13 seasons, and insights from across the years that would help put his place in franchise history into perspective. There would be emotions and feeling and the poignant sense that someone we knew so well was moving on. That wasn't the deal Utley made with Philadelphia, however, and, hometown or not, it's not the one he will make with Los Angeles, either.

LOS ANGELES - After watching the man Dodgers catcher A.J. Ellis called "the best pitcher on the planet" finish off a 13-strikeout, complete-game shutout against his team, Phillies manager Pete Mackanin sat in the visiting clubhouse at Dodger Stadium on Wednesday night almost in awe of Clayton Kershaw. "What impressed me was that ninth inning," Mackanin said. "He wanted that shutout. " Tonight, Cole Hamels will take the mound opposite fellow former World Series MVP Madison Bumgarner when the Phillies begin a three-game series at AT&T Park with the reigning world champion San Francisco Giants.

LOS ANGELES - As the Phillies began their stretching lines Monday at Dodger Stadium, the sea of red uniforms was interrupted by one player in blue. Phillies players took turns embracing Jimmy Rollins as they readied for batting practice. For the first time, the franchise's all-time hits king was the opponent. "I haven't thought about it, honestly," the Los Angeles Dodgers shortstop said earlier about facing his longtime team. "There's enough going on around here to keep me occupied.

PHOENIX - Jimmy Rollins sat at his corner locker stall and nodded toward one locker designated for Yasiel Puig and another belonging to Clayton Kershaw. "You've got 66 and 22. Those are the stars," Rollins said, referring to the players by their uniform numbers. "Everybody else falls in behind them. And that's quite OK. You just do your job, and if they do their jobs, they get the headlines. " If there was ever an indication of Rollins' new life with the Los Angeles Dodgers, it's this admission.

LOS ANGELES - Ten weeks to the day that he announced he was behind schedule heading into spring training and unlikely to pitch on Opening Day, Cole Hamels will take a major league mound for the first time. Hamels is starting his first game of the 2014 season tonight at Dodger Stadium opposite righthander Zack Greinke. It will be Hamels' first start in Los Angeles in almost 5 years, when he started Game 1 of the 2009 National League Championship Series. "It's been a while," manager Ryne Sandberg said of seeing Hamels pitch in a game, period.

DENVER - The Phillies will have played for 24 days when Cole Hamels throws his first pitch Wednesday at Dodger Stadium. That, in all likelihood, is the return date for Hamels. It will mark the franchise's longest period without its homegrown ace since 2007. They crave his presence. "It's pretty much right on schedule when you think about it," Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg said. There is still some internal debate whether to start Hamels on Tuesday or Wednesday, but Sandberg believed Wednesday was best because that order places A.J. Burnett between Cliff Lee and Hamels, his two lefthanded starters.
