Can Dodgers Break Unfortunate Scoring Drought With Tyler Glasnow On Mound?

The Los Angeles Dodgers entered their three-game series against the New York Yankees feeling a little weird about how things went down against the Pittsburgh Pirates over the previous few days. But fast forward two games and Los Angeles has made a statement on the road against one of the best teams in baseball.

They will now be looking for the sweep heading into Sunday’s game and they’ll have ace Tyler Glasnow on the mound. The team moved his start up so he could face off against New York.

Glasnow knows the Yankees extremely well from his days with the Tampa Bay Rays but his last few starts haven’t gone to plan. He has shown up but the offense hasn’t supported him.

As Bob Nightengale of USA Today pointed out in his latest column, the Dodgers haven’t given him a single run of support over his last five starts. Glasnow has pitched to a strong 3.33 ERA over those outings but has fallen victim to the offensive struggles that have plagued L.A. of late.

“In Glasnow’s last five starts, he has yielded a 3.33 ERA, striking out 41 batters in 30 innings. The Dodgers did not score a single run while he was in the game.”

Per Bob Nightengale of USA Today

If the Dodgers want to earn the sweep over New York, they will surely need to score some runs. Even if star Juan Soto misses his third consecutive game, the Yankees lineup is still very strong and can do damage.

The bats seemed to wake up a little bit in Saturday’s game as the Dodgers dropped 11 runs on the Yankees. But for them to leave Yankee Stadium with the brooms out, the Dodgers’ powerful offense will need to show what they are capable of.

This all starts with the top of the lineup and can be a trickle-down to get the bottom half going. First pitch is scheduled for 4:10 p.m. PT from the Bronx.

  1. Dodgers gave Glasnow all he needed but those three home runs killed him, especially that 3 run dinger to .082 hitting Trent Grisham. That hurt. But Glasnow is a stud and he and the Dodgers will bounce back at home. GO BLUE!
