Tony Gonsolin lasted five scoreless innings, the longest start by a Dodgers pitcher all week, Mookie Betts put the game away with a three-run home run in the eighth inning. James Outman made a home-run-saving catch, and Chris Taylor’s run-scoring double gave the Dodgers the lead.
The Dodgers called up Tyler Cyr, the latest fresh arm for a beleaguered bullpen. Andre Jackson, who recorded 10 outs on Thursday, was optioned to Oklahoma City on Friday.
The Dodgers head to St. Louis to play the Cardinals in a three-game series at Busch Stadium, the second meeting between these two teams this season.
