Dodgers Highlights: Little Goes Well as LA Falls to Third Place in NL West

Sorry, Dodgers fans… they lost again. And got swept by the Giants. Sunday was just an all around bad game. The offense was flat. Tony Gonsolin was bad, giving up a career-high 7 runs. And the club struggled defensively and Freddie Freeman hurt his wrist a little while sliding into second base on a double.

With the loss, the Dodgers fall to third place in the NL West, a half game behind the Giants.

The Dodgers got outscored 29-8 in the series.

Let’s get into the lowlights of this one!

The game was scoreless for the first three innings while the Dodgers squandered a few scoring opportunities including a bases loaded threat in the first inning.

San Francisco got on the board first, scoring two runs in the 4th inning as Gonsolin’s command started to waver. He walked the lead off batter and hit the guy behind him. Both runners scored.

The Dodgers got a run back in the bottom of the 4th on a James Outman RBI single.

Each team tacked on runs in the 5th before the Giants pulled away with a 4 spot to go up 7-2 in the 6th inning.

Flash forward to the bottom of the 9th and the offense tried to stage a comeback, loading the bases with 1 out. Will Smith was hit by a pitch to bring home a run and that was all the Dodgers were able to push across for a final 7-3.

About the only bright spot of this game was this great play by Mookie Betts at shortstop.

The bullpen also tossed 3.1 innings of scoreless relief.
