Dodgers Score: Syndergaard Can’t Hold Big Lead, LA Loses Consecutive Games
The Dodgers bats came out hot in the first, putting up 4 in the first highlighted by the early NL Rookie of the Year front runner James Outman’s third home run of the season. Then it all came crashing down. Noah Syndergaard was hit around for 6 runs over 4 innings. And the bullpen couldn’t keep the Diamondbacks from scoring, making for an all around ugly night on run prevention.
Let’s get into the few highlights.
Outman’s third homer of the season traveled 426 feet and got some love from Walker Buehler for the second night in a row.
Dodgers hitters keep taking their walks.
Freddie Freeman was the best hitter of the night going 4-5 with a pair of rocket shot doubles. One would have been a homer at 28 ballparks around the league.
Every single Dodger pitcher allowed a run. Brusdar Graterol was the best pitcher of the night after allowing just one run. Enough about that.
The Dodgers look for the series split on Sunday afternoon with Michael Grove on the mound making his second start of the season. The Diamondbacks counter with right-hander Ryne Nelson. First pitch is set for 1:10 PM PT.
Never learn.. never.. Roberts been a loser..is a loserand will alwys be a loser…and yet he is still here
they should’ve re-signed Tyler Anderson instead of Syndegard.
Bring up GAVIN STONE for the number 5 spot in the rotation ! !!! He earned a spot during spring training. His wipeout change is sick… He struck out 8 A’s in 3 innings ! 1.48 ERA in 121? innings between High-A Great Lakes, Double-A Tulsa, and Triple-A Oklahoma City. He struck out 168 with a 33.9-percent strikeout rate… Come on, Dave…
