After a 16-3 blast last night, Walker Buehler against the Blue Jays pen looked like one more. However, baseball will be baseball (the Astros lost today as -560 favorites) and tonight was a closely fought battle. Kenley Jansen blew up and fortunately, the Dodgers prevailed in the 2-1 win over the Blue Jays to secure the series.
Dodger's bat-red bats had subsided for the first three innings, getting nothing until the 4th when Will Smith parked another homer (his 12th) to start scoring at 1-0. Chris Taylor then immediately hit a lining in the gap in the right center. He looked attractive from both outfielders, but neither of them picked him up and led to a CT3 threesome … but not the homer he tried and he was shot on the plate.
Although the offense did not develop, fortunately Buhler bounced back from his surprising fight against Marlin. At one point he put 11 in a row and he got out of trouble in the 3rd and 7th without much trouble.
In his 91 pitches he went through seven stopping frames. He went none and scattered five hits while striking eight bodies in a starburst.
Joe Kelly then takes over as the 8th man of the installation, receiving two returns and striking out the cruise through countless innings.
with the crime still unable to get insurance, Kenley Janssen was brought in for 9th. He started with a three-step kick, but after a long battle with Rowdy Tellez he hit what was actually a great pitch to the right to tie the game at 1-1. Then Jansen jumped off with a takeoff and a short jump.
After Pedro Beez received his tenth tenth, which set the Dodgers in their half inning, and of course was the one who did it again, smashing his 33rd dong for the Homer, a Tatar walk.
The Dodgers improve to 84-44 for the year.
They will be leaving tomorrow at 4:10 PM HST / 7:10 PM PST / 10:10 PM EST with Kenta Maeda facing someone named Jacob Waguespack .
