Dodgers Come Back to Snap 5-Game Losing Streak With Extra Innings Win Over Mets

The Los Angeles Dodgers have won a game.

On Tuesday, the Dodgers came back from an 0-2 deficit to win 5-2 in extra innings over the struggling New York Mets.

The Mets jumped out to an early 2-0 lead after Francisco Lindor hit a two-run home run off Tyler Glasnow. However, that would be the only mistake Glasnow made, as he allowed just two hits across seven innings of work.

The Dodgers’ offense was dormant through seven innings, but finally broke through in the eighth inning thanks to an error by the Mets and an opposite field RBI single by Freddie Freeman.

In the ninth inning, the Dodgers tied things up on a Chris Taylor squeeze bunt.

Things got scary in the bottom of the ninth, when Daniel Hudson loaded the bases with one out. However, he got two pop outs, and sent the game to extra innings.

He silenced the New York crowd after escaping the jam.

Blake Treinen pitched the 10th inning, and shut things down for his first save since Sept. 2021.

The Dodgers were in the midst of one of their worst slumps in the last half-decade. They scored three or fewer runs in four of their last five games entering Tuesday, including a shutout loss to the Arizona Diamondbacks last week.

However, they finally got things going in the late innings of Tuesday’s first game, and will look to keep the momentum for Game 2 of the doubleheader, even with Shohei Ohtani on the bench.

The Dodgers are now 34-22 on the season.
