After five home wins in a row, it was difficult for this team to rule out a result. Luckily, they moved ahead and defeated the Padres 5: 1 for the fourth time in a row, making them the first team in the majors with 60 wins.
Hyun-Jin Ryu was back on the hill after being shot at Coors Field, and surprisingly returned to work as usual as he no longer threw on the moon , He provided six shutout innings, allowing only three singles and winning five of them. Terribly, he allowed three walks.
It seems he should start the All-Star Game ] Dave Roberts wanted him to rest since he was removed after only 89 parking spaces. It makes sense.
On the other side of the ball, the Dodgers started the scoring in the second residue of Max Muncy the 21st dong of the year, knocked down in the second deck.
Things were then quiet until the 5th when they loaded the bases behind a Matt Beaty single and then back to back to Chris Taylor and Russell Martin . After Ryu knocked out, Joc Pederson was hit by a bad luck to force an enema, and then Alex Verdugo covered another with a sacrificial fly to make it 3-0 ,
On the 6th, they started where they had left off. Cody Bellinger started the fun by shooting his 30th thing of the year to the right.
After Muncy was hit by a bad luck, Enrique Hernandez resorted to an infield single and both runners progressed through a throwing error. This allowed CT3 to retake another run with a sacrificial fly to 5: 0.
On the 7th Dylan Floro relieved Ryu and got a 1: 1 2-3 frame. He did not let a ball into the infield, scoring a goal. The eighth was not as easy as Zac Rosscup continued his questionable Dodgers career and scored a strikeout, but also allowed two singles a run (undeserved, apparently due to an outdated ball) to cut the lead 5- 1.
This brought in JT Chargois who intervened to prevent things from escalating. Chargois was also given the ninth to keep the hindquarters in the pen, and he knocked the page out and made him five-by-five tonight.
The Dodgers improve to 60-29 on the year, which is a 109-win pace. They lead the Rockies with 14.5 games in NL West, the Braves with 7.5 in NL and the Yankees with 2 in MLB.
