LOS ANGELES (AP) — The NL West-leading Dodgers stood pat at the trade deadline, making no major moves as they try to stretch their lead in the division race.

Their only new addition was infielder Darwin Barney, acquired from the Cubs on Monday.

That doesn't mean the Dodgers won't be active in August, when they have a history of making deals.

The game quickly became a secondary concern in the Motor City when the Tigers acquired star left-hander David Price from Tampa Bay in a three-team deal.

Joakim Soria (1-4) — another pitcher recently acquired by Detroit — hit Paul Konerko with the bases loaded in the seventh to...
