'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

• In his last three starts — all losses — Dan Haren has an ERA of 11.57 and the recent slide has left his spot in the Dodgers' rotation in jeopardy as the trade deadline draws near. Reports following his last outing, which ended after 4 23 innings, questioned the Dodgers' faith in Haren looking ahead to the playoffs, despite an 8-4 record heading into July. Overall, he is now 8-7 with a 4.30 ERA.

• Francisco Liriano's only win so far in 2014 came against the Dodgers on May 30 when he pitched 5 23 scoreless innings and allowed five hits. The left-hander, hoping for a rebound in the second half, gave up one run on three hits in five innings Friday but is still looking for his first win of the season at PNC Park (0-3, nine starts). His last home regular-season win was Aug. 30, 2013, vs. St. Louis.
