Its over for the Dodgers 6 games out with 20 to play. Even tho in 2007 the Mets had a 7 game lead on this day and blew it, I can't see the Dodgers catching the Giants.

Rough year for the So Cali teams.They spent tons of money and will watch the playoff from their couches.

The Dodgers also have been hit with the injury bug big time.  For awhile they were ok, but they are starting to pile up now

BOSTON -- The New York Yankees will make a move to try to halt their slide in the AL East by replacing the struggling Freddy Garcia in their rotation with Ivan Nova, a 16-game winner last year who has not pitched since Aug. 21.

Manager Joe Girardi said Nova would start Saturday's game against the Tampa Bay Rays at Yankee Stadium, and Garcia, who had been scheduled to make that start, will return to the bullpen as a long reliever.



"I like the way he threw the other day, so we're going to put him back in the rotation," Girardi said of Nova, who went on the disabled list Aug. 23 with inflammation of the right rotator cuff.

Nova was 9-2 on June 17, but after a run of bad starts in which he went 1-3 with an 8.59 ERA, his record stands at 10-6 with a 4.92 ERA.

Nova threw 40 pitches in a simulated game at Fenway Park on Tuesday and proclaimed himself fit to return to action.

"This guy was really good for us for a substantial period of time, then he ran into some bumps, and we hope he's beyond that," Girardi said. "He was on a roll for us and pitched very well, and we need him to do it again."

In some ways, Nova's season has mirrored that of his team. The Yankees held a 10-game lead in the AL East on July 18, but entering Wednesday they have played .441 ball since (22-28) and found themselves tied for first place in the division with the Baltimore Orioles.

Now Girardi is turning to Nova to give his team a lift in its final 21 games.

"It hasn't been just one thing," Girardi said of the recent play of his team, which has lost nine of its last 14 games, including five of eight on its current road trip. "It's been a few things that we need to play better at.

"We need to swing the bats better when we have opportunities, and we have to pitch better when we have the opportunities."

    DENVER -- Colorado Rockies catcher Ramon Hernandez has a torn tendon in his left hamstring and will miss the remainder of the season.

    Hernandez suffered the injury running out a ground-rule double against the San Francisco Giants on Monday night. An initial MRI was inconclusive, but a second MRI on Wednesday revealed a tear.

    Hernandez will have season-ending surgery next week, the Rockies said.

    Hernandez is hitting .217 with five home runs and 28 RBIs in his first season with Colorado.

    ARLINGTON, Texas -- Texas Rangers third baseman Adrian Beltre was taken out of the team's 5-2 win Wednesday's against the Cleveland Indians in the top of the fifth inning with a left shoulder strain.

    The Rangers announced Beltre will have a precautionary MRI on the shoulder. The results won't be known Wednesday night.



    Mike Olt replaced Beltre at third.

    Beltre injured the shoulder when he dived to his left to get to a sharply hit ground ball by Russ Canzler. Beltre gloved it and made a nice throw to first to get the out.

    He stayed in the game and walked in an at-bat the next inning. Manager Ron Washington and head athletic trainer Jamie Reed came out to check on him, and Beltre stayed in the game.

    But after the top of the fourth inning, Washington was shown on television talking with Beltre in the dugout. And Olt then came in the game the next time the Rangers trotted onto the field on defense.

    Before leaving, Beltre hit his 32nd home run of the season, tying the second most in his career. He had 48 with the Dodgers in 2004. Beltre is hitting .318 this season with 92 RBIs.

    Slugger Josh Hamilton was taken out prior to the eighth inning with a sore left knee.

    Hamilton had a solo home run in the fourth inning and leads the majors with 41 homers and 121 RBIs.

    NEW YORK -- With his fifth-inning infield single Friday night, Derek Jeter passed Willie Mays to move into sole possession of 10th place on the all-time hits list.

    Jeter picked up career hit No. 3,284 against the Tampa Bay Rays' David Price. On July 9, 2011, Jeter collected his 3,000th hit, a home run, off of Price.



    Jeter's hard-hit single scooted just under the glove of second baseman Elliot Johnson. The crowd gave him a standing ovation and then chanted his name.

    "Our fans are the best fans in the world," Jeter said after the Yankees' 6-4 loss in which he added another single. "I've always said that. They appreciate a lot about history."

    Next up on the hits list is Eddie Collins, who had 3,313. Pete Rose is the all-time hit king with 4,256 hits.

    "It's pretty special," Jeter said.

    A hobbling Jeter is playing with a bone bruise in his left ankle. Yankees manager Joe Girardi removed him in the eighth inning of Wednesday's win in Boston, despite Jeter's objection. For the second straight game, he was the team's DH on Friday.

    "I'm playing, so it's not an issue to talk about or discuss," he said before the first pitch Friday. "I've always been that way; I'm not going to change. You either play or you don't, that's the way I've looked at it."

    Jeter entered Friday leading the majors in hits with 195, which was 16 hits better than the Detroit Tigers' Miguel Cabrera. His .323 average was third best in the American League.

    General manager Brian Cashman said there's not much that can be done to heal Jeter's bone bruise, except for extended rest. The Yankees are fighting for the division and a wild card and don't have the luxury to sit Jeter.

    "We are going to help him manage to the degree we can," Cashman said. "It is someone who doesn't want help."

    Jeter did not hear from Mays after tying him for 10th on the all-time list Thursday. He says he doesn't know Mays well but got the opportunity to interview him, along with Ken Griffey Jr., as part of the 2007 All-Star Game in San Francisco.

    "Whenever you admire someone, it's always kind of awkward when you're sitting there talking to him on camera for the first time," Jeter said. "It was a fun experience and I've seen him throughout the years and like I said, he's always been really nice to me."

    DETROIT -- Oakland Athletics left-hander Brett Anderson will miss the rest of the regular season because of a strain of his right oblique.

    A's manager Bob Melvin made the announcement after a 12-4 win over Detroit on Thursday, a day after Anderson awkwardly fell off the mound. Melvin said he doesn't yet know whether Anderson would be available if Oakland reaches the postseason.

    The Athletics are tied with Baltimore for the AL wild-card lead.

    Anderson is 4-2 with a 2.57 ERA in six games.

    Melvin had previously said Anderson would miss one start and that Dan Straily would take his spot.

    He won’t be eligible for the playoffs if Milwaukee gets there, but the Brewers have added some backup catching help for the final two weeks by acquiring Yorvit Torrealba from the Blue Jays for cash considerations.

    Torrealba was released by the Rangers in early August after they traded for Geovany Soto to replace him as their No. 2 catcher and eventually agreed to a minor-league contract with the Blue Jays. He was called up on August 21 and played 10 games for Toronto, hitting .217 with a .588 OPS.

    Torrealba will be a free agent after the season, so don’t expect the “cash” part of cash considerations to be a whole lot. He probably won’t get more than a handful of plate appearances for Milwaukee playing behind Jonathan Lucroy.
