Dodgers Score: Freddie Freeman Homers, Dustin May Dominates, James Outman Stays Hot as LA Beats Arizona Again

The Dodgers took care of the Diamondbacks on Thursday with a 5-2 victory, moving to 5-2 on the year. Dustin May took the mound for LA, and yet again dominated Arizona, going six innings and allowing just one earned run.

Overall, he’s thrown 13 dominant innings to start the 2023 season, allowing just one run. He has a minuscule 0.69 ERA and 0.62 WHIP.

May wasn’t the only star of the night, however, as the Dodger bats made things happen with two outs.

In the 2nd inning, it was Chris Taylor bringing in a run with two outs. Then, in the 3rd, J.D. Martinez hit a two-out RBI double. And then, in the 6th, it was James Outman’s turn, as he roped an RBI single to right field with, you guessed it, two outs in the inning.

In the 7th inning, Freddie Freeman came up with nobody on and two outs, and crushed an opposite field home run, his first of the season. It’s hard to believe that he turned this pitch into a home run.

The Dodgers now have 23 two-out runs this season, which leads all of baseball. Talk about grittiness.

The bullpen was a little shaky in this one yet again. Alex Vesia was only able to get one out, before being pulled for Yency Almonte in the seventh.

Then, in the eighth, Phil Bickford came in instead of Evan Phillips or Brusdar Graterol against the heart of the order. He allowed a leadoff double and a wild pitch, but then settled in very nicely, escaping the inning without allowing a run.

The Dodgers loaded the bases in the ninth inning but couldn’t bring home a run, setting up a save opportunity for Evan Phillips.

Phillips took down the Diamondbacks in order, closing this one out and getting his first save of the season.

The Dodgers and Diamondbacks face off again on Friday night. First pitch is at 6:40 p.m. PST. Clayton Kershaw is on the mound for the Dodgers, going up against Madison Bumgarner of the Diamondbacks.
