Dodgers offense quiet as bullpen loses game in ninth

Can’t win em all

MLB: Colorado Rockies at Los Angeles Dodgers Robert Hanashiro-USA TODAY Sports

The Dodgers had a rare quiet night with the bats and the bullpen blew it in the ninth, as they fell to the Rockies 5-2.

The Dodgers put up two runs in the fifth. Gavin Lux began the inning with a walk and advanced to second on a groundout. Another groundout advanced him to third base with two outs.

As he’s done all year, Mookie Betts delivered in the clutch, singling in Lux to cut the deficit to one. Corey Seager kept the rally alive, doubling Betts in to tie the game at two. That would be the only offense from the Dodgers all night.

The game would remain tied at two until the ninth inning. Blake Treinen took the mound and allowed three consecutive singles. Colorado took the 3-2 lead, and his night was over.

Alex Wood relieved him, and loaded the bases with one out. He allowed a double to Josh Fuentes, making the score 5-2 Colorado.

Tony Gonsolin started for the Dodgers and had yet another stellar performance. He gave the Dodgers six innings and allowed two runs, though one of it was earned. His eight strikeouts tied a career-best for him.

On the season, Gonsolin’s ERA is now 0.76. Not too shabby.
