Dodgers’ Blake Treinen Unpacks His Performance Against Giants

The Los Angeles Dodgers bullpen had been nearly untouchable for 13 consecutive innings until the San Francisco Giants snapped that streak with a pair of home runs off relievers Daniel Hudson and Blake Treinen on Friday night at Oracle Park.

Treinen only threw eight pitches in the bottom of the ninth inning. He walked Luis Matos on four pitches and then surrendered a two-run homer to rookie Brett Wisely on a 1-2 count. The walk-off shot cleared the wall in right to give the Giants their 31st walk-off win over the Dodgers since the teams moved west from New York City in 1958.

“Honestly, I don’t even know where the pitch ended up that he hit,” Treinen said. “I threw two good sliders before that. Swung and missed on one. Seemed like the right pitch at that time. … It’s all about execution, and sometimes they execute better than we do.”

Hudson entered the game in the sixth inning with a 2-1 lead. He left with the Dodgers trailing 3-2 after leaving a fastball over the plate for Matt Chapman to send out of the park.

“Our guys have pitched extremely well all year,” Treinen said. “It sucks losing. That’s about it. I don’t really know what else to say.”
