Wednesday night was pretty sweet for Dodgers fans. Looking for a series sweep over the Rockies, Los Angeles’ offense struggled to get anything across the entire game. But after a ball skipped away at home plate, that opened the door to get them back into the game.
That set the stage for the 9th inning. The Dodgers loaded up the bases against Daniel Bard and brought up Mookie Betts to end it. He chopped a ball over the mound and the Rockies’ infield could not get a play off at the plate. Betts was credited with a walk-off single to end it.
But this morning, the scoring decision was officially changed. The Dodgers outfielder was credited with a fielder’s choice rather than the single to earn his first walk-off hit. Here was the play from Wednesday night, and it’s a tough call.

Mookie would not have been at first base if the play was not at the plate. So yes, it probably should have been a fielder’s choice in the first place. But the Dodgers got the win and series sweep, so we’ll let it slide this time.
The Dodgers will take on the Cubs in a 4-game series that started last night in Los Angeles. Tyler Anderson gets the ball this evening looking to get back into his groove.
