Dodgers Highlights: Tony Gonsolin’s Struggles Continue as LA Bats Stifled in Loss

The Dodgers fall to the Royals on a final of 9-1, wrapping up a 6 game road trip going 3-3. Tony Gonsolin struggled again, allowing 6 hits while walking 3 and hitting a batter over 3.2 innings. Meanwhile, the Dodger bats were missing in action as the club wrapped the series in Kansas City. The Royals knocked LA pitching around, scoring 4 on Gonsolin 3 on Victor Gonzalez, and 2 more on Yency Almonte as the team struggled to play clean baseball all game long.


There really were no highlights in this game. Mookie Betts got a double, continuing his exceptional road trip.

Otherwise, Royals starter Brady Singer put together a gem, allowing 1 run over 7 innings. Dodgers hitters managed to get just 4 hits off him and 6 total all game. The only run of the game came on a sacrifice fly off the bat of Miguel Vargas.

The only Dodger to actually keep Kansas City from scoring was utility man Yonny Hernandez who tossed a scoreless frame in the 8th inning.

It was an all around flop of a game and bad road trip for LA as they go 3-3 against two last place teams.

Up Next

The Dodgers head back home for a 6 game homestand before the All-Star break. Clayton Kershaw is scheduled to start but that may no longer be the case as he deals with a shoulder issue.

  1. When you have clowns running an organization, this is the result you get. Roberts sits there and acts as if everything is great when they just got their asses kicked by the worst team in baseball. And as big of a joke that Roberts is, Friedman is even worse.

  2. Worst Dodger team we’ve seen in a decade. A 3-3 road trip vs 2 of the 3 worst teams in the sport is a disaster. The pitching isn’t getting better any time soon, actually it’s getting worse with no Kershaw. And can somebody PLEASE explain to me why Miguel Vargas is in the big leagues? I haven’t seen one thing from him all year to make me think he’s a big leaguer. I saw more from Yonny Hernandez this weekend than I have from Vargas all year. Friedman needs to send a message to this team and send Vargas down and also send down or DFA Gonzalez if he’s out of options. His one good year was clearly an aberration. You can’t keep running these dudes out there that constantly don’t perform. What kind of message does that send? Send a damn message to this team and give somebody else a shot.
