Dodgers win! What an exciting pair of late rallies!
The Los Angeles Dodgers score 5 runs in the eighth inning to overpower the Colorado Rockies, winning a slugfest, 10-6.
Raimel Tapia took Dustin May deep to leadoff the game, giving the Rockies a nearly immediate advantage. Facing Antonio Senzatela, Mookie Betts’ single was erased on Corey Seager’s double-play. Max Muncy evened the score at 1 with a 2-out solo home run. May worked around a single in the second and Senzatela did the same, getting another double-play ball. May pitched a spotless frame in the top of the third, but Gavin Lux’s 1-out single was all for LA in their half. May struck-out a pair in the fourth where he and Senzatela traded 1-2-3 frames. Sam Hilliard’s solo shot in the fifth put Colorado ahead 2-1, and the Dodgers were unable to capitalize on an error offensively. Lux made a poor throw to start the sixth, allowing the first batter to reach, but May wiped the bases clean with a double-play of Nolan Arenado. Adam Kolarek entered from there, closing the book on May’s solid outing: 5.2IP, 2ER, 3H, 1BB, 5K. Kolarek got the final out of the frame and Betts doubled to begin the home half. Seager punched a single through the hole and Betts hustled home, tying the game at 2. Cody Bellinger followed with a hit of his own, but Joc Pederson went down swinging, failing to break the tie. Kolarek worked around a 2-out bunt single to toss a harmless top of the seventh. After stretching, Chris Taylor quickly singed to put the go-ahead run on base. Will Smith launched a 2-run shot into the night sky that gave LA their first lead of the game, 4-2. Gavin Lux walked and advanced to 2nd on a wild pitch, and after Betts’ sacrifice fly moved Lux to 3rd, he scored on Seager’s fly-ball to make it 5-2. Brusdar Graterol entered for the eighth and got two outs before walking his second batter of the inning. Caleb Ferguson relieved Graterol and worked soft contact to Charlie Blackmon, who unfortunately reached on an infield hit, loading the bases. Kevin Pillar took advantage of a middle-high fastball and crushed a grand-slam, putting Colorado in front, 5-4. Ferguson punched-out Matt Kemp to end the frame. After Bellinger singled sharply, AJ Pollock flipped the script with a clutch opposite-field 2-run homer, regaining the lead for the boys in blue, 7-6. Subsequently, Joc Pederson smashed a solo bomb that doubled their lead, and following Smith’s single later in the inning, Betts made it 10-6 with a 2-run shot. Kenley Jansen made some very good pitches in the ninth but made an equal amount of bad ones, hitting a batter and allowing a single in a scoreless frame to end the ballgame.
Every Dodger in the lineup records a hit as they take the series opener over the Rockies, and win their sixth straight game. Improving to 30-10 now, they’ll plan to clinch the series victory over Colorado tomorrow. Tony Gonsolin, still searching for his first victory of the season, gets the start. Entering with a very impressive ERA of 0.51, Gonsolin looks to build (or, with his success to this point, just continue) momentum headed into the postseason. Opposing him will be 25-year-old righty Germán Marquez, who is 2-5 with a 4.88 ERA and has struggled greatly in 2020. 6:10pm first pitch. Go Dodgers!
