Bauer Has Complete Game But A Loss for Dodgers

Bauer Has Complete Game But A Loss for the Dodgers

The reigning Cy Young winner made his 6th start for the Los Angeles Dodgers. This time in Milwaukee against the Brewers. He is coming off a win in San Diego, but the offense has cooled off drastically since that series. Let’s see if he was able to get the job done again.

Starting Fast

Bauer with a 1-2-3 inning to start the game. He gets Narvaez swinging to end the first.  In the second inning, not much hard contact and collects hit second strikeout by Garcia swing and missing.

In the third, Jackie Bradley Jr. doubled to lead off the inning to right field, but Bauer set down the next three batters, garnering his third strikeout of the game.

Trouble Ahead

Starting off the fourth inning, the Dodgers get the first two batters with a couple of groundouts.  Then Bauer walks Garcia. In the next at-bat, Brian Shaw takes Bauer deep! 2-0 Brewers lead. Bauer faced the minimum in the fifth and then again in the seventh, making it four 1-2-3 inning for Trevor Bauer in the game. He threw his 5th and 6th strikeout of the game. Bauer has had 7+ Ks through every start this year, and he only needed one more to keep his streak alive.  He didn’t get it.

Bauer was the first Dodgers starting pitcher to pitch into the 8th inning this year.  He makes it through the inning, giving up only a walk.  Dodgers would end up losing this game 2-1. Bauer has a complete game, only allows 2 runs, and takes the loss. I can’t blame Bauer for this one. He did more than enough for us to win this one. Our starting pitchers have carried the team as of late.
