Rich Hill took the mound on Friday and he was completely in charge of the situation. He pitched six innings and gave up no runs and two hits. He also struck out ten.
Aside from the fourth inning, the Reds did not put anyone on base against Hill. In fact, in five of the six innings he pitched, Hill retired the side in order.
This was the fourth time Hill has struck out ten and had no walks in a start. He had lost the two other times he did that as a Dodger.
And there there is this fun fact.
Rich Hill’s next start will be the finale of the Dodgers two-game series against the Rays. Hill will pitch on Wednesday, his opposing pitcher has not been named yet.
