In the first full week after the All-Star break, the Los Angeles Dodgers played six games and came up with four wins. The team finished their series against the St. Louis Cardinals with a win before dropping two out of three to the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Following an off-day on Thursday, the San Francisco Giants were next on the schedule for a critical NL West showdown. The Dodgers began the series by taking the first two games.

With the Dodgers in the midst of a tight division and playoff race, the team is trying to figure out how to manage its lineup for sustained success as Don Mattingly continued to shuffle the outfield around by having Yasiel Puig play center field.

All the while, trade rumors continue to be a major story with non-wavier deadline just four days away.
