Clayton Kershaw battled through five frames, tying Don Drysdale for second-most wins in Dodgers history. And Mookie Betts set a career high in long balls with 36 helping lead a 9-run slugfest
Mookie Betts came over as the final piece to a championship caliber club. These days, Betts is so much more than that, as the foundational piece of the Dodgers. And he returns to Fenway Park for the first time since getting traded by the Red Sox.
The Dodgers started off well, with multiple first inning runs off Noah Syndergaard. The scoring virtually stopped there, as the Guardians scored the game’s final eight runs to beat Los Angeles.
Dodgers top three hitters Mookie Betts, Freddie Freeman, and Will Smith each had three hits, Chris Taylor and Miguel Rojas homered to beat the Brewers, for LA’s 10th consecutive victory.
Bobby Miller shoved through six innings, and played a pivotal role in this win. The Dodgers offense took a little time getting in on the action, but a five-run sixth was more than enough to beat the Brewers.
David Peralta delivered on his second bases loaded opportunity, and helped the Dodgers win, with a two-run single. On the pitching side of things, Bobby Miller delivered six shutout frames
Freddie Freeman had another one of his many three-hit games, helping the Dodgers to a 5-4 victory over the Diamondbacks on the road. Julio Urías did his part as well, with six scoreless innings
Two early homers were enough offense to power the Dodgers past the Padres in this win on Sunday Night Baseball. Lance Lynn delivered his second quality start in as many outings with LA
Mookie Betts and Freddie Freeman both scored in each of the first two innings, as the Dodgers routed the Oakland A’s. Finishing five, Tony Gonsolin earned his sixth win of the season.
The Dodgers have already traded for two position players, and will definitely trade for starting pitching. But acquiring a back-end relief pitcher could end up being among the most impactful trades the Dodgers could make.
