Sept. 2 marks the return of Call of Duty XP, a three day celebration for fans of the franchise. But for the first time ever, the event will host the epic conclusion to the Call of Duty World Championship, a yearlong event that started earlier this year in January. 32 premier teams from across the world will compete in Los Angeles for their share of the $2 million prize pool, a record sum for a tournament that debuted back in 2013.Its a watershed moment for the Call of Duty franchise, which has been an early promoter of the esports scene since the very first Call of Duty XP event in 2011. Thats thanks in part to the introduction of the CWL, a structured, yearlong event.While the CWL has had its share of ups and downs in its first season, its a venture that the CEO of Activision Eric Hirshberg considers a resounding success. To give you an example of the kind of effect the creation of a global, yearlong league has done, our qualifying rounds this year were more viewed than our championship rounds last year. To put that into context, our championship rounds last year made Call of Duty the most viewed shooter on console, he said.Hirshberg attributes that success to the players. They give you the momentum of a story: a beginning, middle and end. Those narratives are what fuel an interest in sports. People love watching the best players in the world play the game they love.Unlike other console esports, a new iteration of Call of Duty is released each year. That turnover isnt lost on Hirshberg, who feels the changes add an extra layer of difficulty for the professionals. That makes CoD esports athletes the most elite, he said. Because not only do they have to be the best, but they have to constantly adapt to each new iteration of the game.With Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, along with the remastered version of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, scheduled to hit shelves Nov. 4, Call of Duty XP will represent one of the final tournaments to be played on Call of Duty: Black Ops III. That means this could be one of the final times that OpTic Gaming has the chance to face their rival, FaZe Clan, in a LAN event, something that hasnt happened this year.I think a lot of people are looking forward to that matchup, admitted Hirshberg.For the fans planning to attend the event, it wont just be all about watching the professionals, however.We basically created a theme park that leaped out of a video game, said Hirshberg. Weve built full-size versions of maps in the game and will allow fans to play paintball in them. We are going to have a zombies haunted house laser-tag event. We are going to have a virtual-reality exclusive event at CoD XP where you get to fly the Jackal, which is a combat ship in Infinite Warfare. We are going to have zipline missions. Its really like youre living the game.Thats the model for sports, said Mike Sepso, former co-founder and president of Major League Gaming (MLG), who joined Activision Blizzards esports division a little less than a year ago as the senior vice president. Its not just about sitting down and watching the game, its about the whole entertainment experience. I think thats something that XP is going to do really well. The CWL has really been able to make Call of Duty esports look and feel more like traditional sports, and thats going to help us tremendously in terms of reaching a bigger and more mainstream audience.

LOS ANGELES -- Scott Kazmir is running short on time to prove he belongs on the Dodgers postseason roster. Fresh off the disabled list, the veteran pitcher was dealt another blow when spasms cut short his start.Ross Stripling picked up the slack with three scoreless innings of relief, Joc Pederson and pinch-hitter Andre Ethier hit back-to-back home runs in the fourth inning and the Dodgers defeated the Colorado Rockies 5-2 on Friday night after an emotional pre-game ceremony honoring Vin Scully.Their third straight victory trimmed the Dodgers magic number for clinching a record fourth consecutive NL West title to two. Their division lead increased to seven games after San Francisco lost at San Diego 7-2.Kazmir allowed two hits while tossing just 19 pitches in his first start for the Dodgers since Aug. 22. He left after one inning because of right spasms in his ribs and chest. The left-hander spent the past month on the disabled list with neck inflammation.It was tough for me to swallow, he said. Its frustrating.Kazmir said the pain on his front side was similar to what he felt during a brief stint at Triple-A Oklahoma City.You cant stay strong, he said. I had to not throw as hard.Dodgers manager Dave Roberts removed Kazmir to avoid the risk of further injury.I feel bad for Kaz, Roberts said.

The right-hander struck out 10 and walked three on 106 pitches. Gray was coming off a franchise-record 16 strikeouts in a complete-game 8-0 win over San Diego last weekend. His combined 26 strikeouts are the most in a two-game span in Coloraado franchise history.ddddddddddddI knew from the beginning it would be a tough day with no fastball command, Gray said. Fastball command is number one when it comes to pitching. Without that it is incredibly tough to succeed.Colorado scored its runs in the sixth on Nolan Arenados 40th homer leading off and Tom Murphys RBI single.The Dodgers honored Scully on his appreciation night with fellow left-handers Sandy Koufax and Clayton Kershaw among those paying tribute to the 88-year-old Hall of Fame broadcaster who is retiring when the regular season ends next weekend.I should be on my knees to pray in thanksgiving for all the wonderful things that have happened to me, said Scully, showered with the same roar of the crowd that first enticed him while listening to college football games on the familys four-legged radio as an 8-year-old in the Bronx.Ive loved this game for 80 years, he said.TITLE BELTThe Dodgers player of the game belt went to Stripling. The large decorated blue belt resembles one given to a prize fighter. That thing weighs like 10 pounds, Stripling said. Technically, it goes to the whole bullpen but they let me keep it in my locker.WORKING `PENThe eight innings of relief set a single-season Dodgers record for most bullpen innings pitched with 559.0. The old mark of 553.0 was set in 2009.SINGING SCULLYScully did a bit of lip-synching while his pre-recorded version of Take Me Out to the Ballgame played in the seventh inning.
