Dodgers Highlights: LA Does Just Enough To Sweep Arch Rival Giants

Your Los Angeles Dodgers have swept the San Francisco Giants in their season series finale. They pull out the win in extras 4-3. Overall, the Dodgers take 15 of the 19 meetings in the 2022 season. After a season where the Dodgers and the Giants battled neck and neck for the division crown, Dodgers dominate the NL west with ease in 2022, specifically the Giants. 

Pitching Duel

Unlike the offensive scrimmage that the Dodgers put on these past two games, today was a whole lot different. The pitching on both sides really clamped down as both teams combined for 12 hits. Dodgers southpaw Andrew Heaney didn’t do enough to pick up the win, but it was enough for LA to grab the win. Heaney pitched 4 innings, allowed two hits, 1 run (zero earned), and 8 K’s in his outing. The Dodgers combined for 8 different pitchers in today’s game, they all went to combine for 6 hits allowed and gave up 3 runs. 

Extras

Cody Bellinger started off as the ghost runner in the top of the 10th inning. Catcher Austin Barnes started things off and squared off a sacrifice bunt that moved Cody to third base. Dodgers superstar Mookie Betts then came in and slapped the ball to left field that brought in Bellinger and resulted in a double. A bases-loaded walk then sent in Betts to push the lead to two. However, that was all that was needed in order to grab the win in Dodger Stadium North.

  1. Bringing in Jackson in the 10th was a typically bad DR move. He has hasn’t even pitched well in the minors this year. The Dodgers we’re lucky to win this game. And these games count to stay ahead of the Mets in the NL and the Astros in the AL. The Dodgers need to keep their foot on the gas. And avoid bad moves that can lose games.
