In the top of the eleventh, the Padres took the lead, but the Dodgers still had a chance to tie. With two men on base and two outs in the bottom of the inning, Corey Seager grounded out to Fernando Tatis Jr., a symbolic play of the four-game series: no matter how hard Seager hit the ball, Tatis Jr. was gonna make sure the Padres won.
In summary, it was a tough week for Corey Seager and the Dodgers. The offense is in a slump and saved a couple of games by Seager’s RBI hits. He was outplayed greatly by Fernando Tatis Jr. this weekend. Hopefully, he and the Dodgers can get into a groove and win some ballgames this week!
