LOS ANGELES – The Dodgers were out on the ninth inning when Kenley Jansen surrendered his 8th homer of the season to tie the game. Luckily, the Bums were able to pull out the win anyways, with a walk-off home run by Max Muncy.
The Walk-off came in the 10th inning against pitcher Tim Mayza to give the Dodgers a 2-1 victory.
Shadowed by Kenley Jansen's blown save, Walker Buehler pitched seven scoreless innings against the Toronto Blue Jays. The right hander got off to a shaky start, allowing four of his five hits in the first three innings. After he gave up hit no. 4, he retired the next 1
It's the fifth time Buehler has tossed at least seven innings in a scoreless outing this year and the 10th time he has at least eight strikeouts in a start. Sure the eight strikeouts are good, but that's only helped as many as his season-high.
Will Smith kicked off the scoring for the night. In his 100th plate appearance of the year, he broke the stalemate in the fourth inning with a solo home run in the fourth inning.
Chris Taylor immediately followed Smith's homer with what could have been inside-the-park home run. He hit a fly ball that landed right in between the right and center fielders, causing them to collide. Taylor ran for his life, causing the Dodger Stadium to go nuts. Hey what tagged out at home, and after a manager's challenge, the call was confirmed – no home plate collision and no run.
Taylor's impressive effort was ruled as a triple with a day out at home.
The Dodgers had a huge opportunity in the eighth to bring home a few more runs, but finally it fell short. Toronto pitcher Ken Giles played Max Muncy and Justin Turner to bring Cody Bellinger to the plate with no outs. Bellinger lined out on the second base and the fallen tagged second base for the second out.
Corey Seager hit the fans' hopes up when he hit a base.
Joe Kelly proved to be the elite pitcher with another scoreless inning on the mound. He just needed 10 pitches to get the job done.
