Miguel Rojas Reflected On Dodgers’ 24 Game Win Streak Following Hit

Entering Friday’s game in San Francisco, Los Angeles Dodgers shortstop Miguel Rojas had an unbelievable streak going. Unfortunately, it came to a crashing halt with a 4-3 loss.

The Dodgers were 24-0 in games that Rojas recorded at least one hit. He had two hits and the Dodgers couldn’t protect their leads.

“It’s over,” a dejected Rojas said afterward. “I just want to thank all the Dodgers fans out there and the people who have been watching. The support has been amazing. I’ve seen all the posts on social media. It was overwhelming. … But at the end of the day, this is part of the game. I enjoyed it. Hopefully, we start another streak tomorrow.”

Rojas didn’t want to believe the streak would end. When the Dodgers tied the game at 3-3 in the top of the ninth, the veteran thought Blake Treinen would get through the inning, the Dodgers would score the automatic runner in the top of the 10th and Evan Phillips would slam the door in the bottom.

Sadly, it didn’t end that way. Treinen gave up a walk-off two-run homer in the ninth.

“As soon as Pages hit the ball and it dropped and he got to third base, I knew we had a chance to win,” Rojas said. “All we needed to do was get back in the dugout, and with the ghost runner at second base [in extra innings], we’d have a good chance to score. Then we have Evan [Phillips] in the 10th … but it was a tough one there for Blake.”

Los Angeles started a new streak back up on Saturday as Rojas provided three hits in the win. They will look to carry that momentum to another long winning streak.
