Quiet But Solid Week for Seager

It was a quiet but solid week for Corey Seager. He started hot in Monday’s game with a walk and a 3-run double but then went 0 for his next 10. He’s still hitting .342, though, so there’s no reason to worry about the bat, and, defensively,  he made the outs he needed to.

SEAGER vs. A’s

April 5 – THE BLOWOUT

In the first inning, Seager worked a walk against Frankie Montas. Then in the second inning, Seager blasted a three-run double. That was his last hit for a while. He struck out swinging with men on corners in the third inning. He struck out looking in the fifth inning. Both strikeouts were versus AJ Puk, the young A’s lefty. Then he struck out swinging in the seventh inning versus former Dodger Adam Kolarek. He had a groundout in the ninth inning.

April 6 – COOLING DOWN

This was the first game in which Corey Seager didn’t get on base in the first inning, and in the first game, he didn’t get a hit. Facing Chris Bassitt and the A’s relievers, Seager went 0-5. He grounded out to first base in both the first and second innings. Seager then struck out in both the fourth and seventh innings. Seager did hit the ball hard in the ninth inning, but it turned out to be a lineout.

April 7 – THE TRAP GAME

The Dodgers had ample opportunity to win this game but would ultimately lose in 10 innings to the A’s. Seager got a walk in the first inning. Then his hitless streak stretched to three games when he struck out in the second inning. He got a flyout in the fifth inning but ended his 0-10 streak with a single in the seventh. He led off the ninth inning with another single but was left stranded.

SEAGER vs. Nationals

April 9 – OPENING DAY

Our boys got their championship rings! Fans, finally back in the stands, shouted “MVP” as the 2020 World Series MVP got his ring. This followed a special video message from his brother, Kyle Seager, congratulating Corey on winning the World Series. During the game, there wasn’t much offense. Corey Seager struck out, looking in the first inning, and lined out in the third. He struck out looking again in the sixth, right before Justin Turner’s home run. Seager got another at-bat in the eighth inning but flew out to center.

April 10 – DODGERS ROUGH UP CORBIN

In the second game of the series, Corey Seager and the Dodgers broke through offensively. In the first inning, Seager flew out to left field. He then lined out to right field in the second inning. Fast forward to the fifth inning, and Seager got a one-out base hit. He would score on Turner’s ensuing double. Seager then flew out in the seventh inning and earned a walk in the eighth.

April 11 – BRING OUT THE BROOMS

In the first inning, Seager grounded out to second base. In the third, he did the same. Then in the sixth, Seager hit a double off Max Scherzer but was left stranded at second base.  He then struck out in the eighth inning.

These two series weren’t exactly filled with highlights for Corey Seager but overall a quiet but solid week. He got some hits, brought in some runs, and played well defensively. With Mookie Betts and Cody Bellinger out of the lineup, the Dodgers have relied on Seager to lead the offense, and he has done just that.
