After a sweep of the A’s, they’ve taken three of 4 from the Padres.


Run prevention magician Tony Gonsolin has not had his normal tips to this point in 2023, and right this moment was extra of the identical. Issues occurred immediately as properly as a result of he confronted the minimal over the primary two innings, with the one runner approaching an Enrique Hernandez error that was erased by a double play.

Issues began going downhill instantly within the third, as a stroll was adopted by a Luis Campusano two-run homer.

After a groundout moved him to 3rd, a Manny Machado sacrifice fly made it 5-0 earlier than he was in a position to get out of the inning.

Remarkably that rapidly didn’t matter all that a lot.

Seth Lugo began by going through one over the minimal by means of three, giving up a two-out single within the 1st and seeing a single within the third erased by a double play. He appeared to be on his recreation and the Dodgers appeared to be struggling in one other day recreation.

Properly, about that. Within the 4th, the Dodgers obtained a Freddie Freeman lead-off single, a one-out stroll from Max Muncy, an RBI double from David Peralta, a two-RBI double from Jason Heyward, an Enrique Hernandez stroll and James Outman single to load the bases, a Miguel Rojas single to drive in one other run, and at last a Mookie Betts grand slam on a 3-0 depend for a large eight-run inning.

Issues began rapidly as Enrique continued his resurgence as a Dodger together with his seventh homer of the yr. They didn’t cease after that, as Outman walked, Rojas doubled, Freeman was deliberately walked with one out, and Will Smith blooped a single previous second for a run. Muncy then doubled for 2 extra runs, and a Peralta sacrifice fly made it 13 unanswered runs and a 13-5 lead.

In the meantime, Gonsolin immediately had a cushty lead and was no less than retaining issues sane. He gave up simply an infield single within the 4th, and labored round a pair of singles within the fifth due to considered one of them being erased by a double play. Within the sixth, although, a one-out double was cashed in with a two-out single to make it 13-6, however the runner was thrown out to finish the body and his day.

I wouldn’t say it’s an excellent outing, but it surely was ok right this moment: 6 IP, 9 H, 6 R, 1 BB, 3 Okay, 84 Pitches.

The Dodgers offense appeared to take the remainder of the day without work, getting a single within the seventh, a single within the eighth, and a double within the ninth, however no runs.


Taking on for Tony and to finish the sport was the pen. Joe Kelly was excellent within the seventh, putting out the aspect on 13 pitches, then Bryan Hudson carved the center of the Padres order on simply 13 pitches.

He then obtained two outs on two good performs by Rojas within the ninth, then gave up Campusano’s second homer of the afternoon to make it 13-7. Fortuitously, no drama adopted, and after a single an infield pop closed it out.




Dodgers 65-46

*Both nonetheless enjoying or will play later.

The Dodgers will now journey to Arizona for a three-game set with the struggling Diamondbacks. Julio Urias will look to proceed to proper his personal ship in opposition to Brandon Pfaadt, whose identify seems like a fatphobic insult.
