Dodgers: Tony Gonsolin ‘Whatever’ About Losing No Hit Bid

The only thing that was more glorious than Dodger Stadium bathing in California sunshine was Tony Gonsolin’s pitching. Gonsolin did not allow a single hit until the sixth inning of the Dodgers 5-1 victory over the Atlanta Braves. 

After the game, the hurler was nonchalant about being 12 outs away from throwing a no-no. The Orange County Register’s Bill Plunkett captured the hurler’s thoughts on losing the no hitter in the sixth inning.

“It’s just whatever. “It’s just going out there, trying to execute every pitch and whatever happens happens. It’s there. But it’s whatever.”

Gonsolin yielded just one hit in six nearly spotless innings to help the Dodgers take two of three off of the visiting Atlanta Braves. 

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts has liked what he’s seen so far from Tony Smokes.

“All three outings [from Gonsolin] have been good. … Used his fastball the right way and his breaking stuff was on. He did a heck of a job.”

Gonsolin owns a 0.69 ERA over his first three starts. He’s been exactly what the Dodgers have needed out of their fourth starter. His start on Wednesday was his longest outing since September 26, 2020. That year was Tony’s coming out party. The righty posted a 2.31 ERA in nine starts in the COVID shortened season. He wound up finishing fourth in NL rookie of the year voting. 

Gonsolin’s next start will likely be early next in Arizona when the Dodgers visit the Diamondbacks for a three game set.

  1. Man! We need him to be tough now With Heaney going down, ,we need some good starts from Tony.

  2. Hopefully Tony stays healthy which means ( Dr Dave) doesn’t wear him out before the All Star break. At least this year the Dodgers have a guaranteed 300 hitter with power and is clutch. Freeman is everything and can carry the team. Mookie has been a Bust, and only plays when he wants to. Dr Dave let’s him be the manager and doesn’t push him to earn his 25 million. JT and Muncy better start eating their wheaties because with Heaney down, No Bauer, Kersh returning to his normal 3-4 runs a start, and Urias hot and cold, the team will need to keep scoring 5-6 every game…
