Dodgers’ Landon Knack Unpacks His Strong Performance Against Angels

Los Angeles Dodgers rookie pitcher Landon Knack returned to the majors this past week and got the start against the Los Angeles Angels. The Dodgers are dealing with several key injuries in their starting rotation, including Walker Buehler and Yoshinobu Yamamoto, who were both placed on the injured list this month.

With these injuries, the Dodgers called up Knack again from Triple-A Oklahoma City. In his return, Knack once again made the most of his opportunity, pitching an excellent game.

Knack pitched five innings, giving up two hits, two walks, and zero earned runs. He also struck out two batters as he pitched his first scoreless game. The Dodgers went on to lose the game 3-2 but to no fault of Knack, who held the Angels scoreless.

After the game, Knack said he ‘felt good’ about the game and that his pitches were working well. He also added that he is getting more comfortable during his major league starts.

“Absolutely. Things have been good, feel comfortable here whenever I get to come and make a start. Whenever they need me I try to be ready. Definitely feeling comfortable now,” Knack said, via SportsNet LA.

Knack has now started five games for the Dodgers this season since making his debut on April 17. He’s allowed three home runs, six earned runs, 16 hits, and eight walks across 25.2 innings. During this time he has 18 strikeouts and an ERA of 2.10.
