Dodgers Win Another Behind Tony Gonsolin’s Outstanding Start

One of these days, Dodgers fans will finally give Tony Gonsolin the recognition that he deserves. Gonsolin has been one of the most reliable starters on this team in 2022, and without him, things would have been very difficult.

Gonsolin came into the game on Saturday without allowing more than 2 earned runs in a start all season. He kept that up, but just barely. He got dinged for 2 earned runs again, but this time it was across 6 innings of work. That was huge for the Dodgers bullpen. 

When he did hand the ball off, Justin Bruihl, Alex Vesia, and Daniel Hudson absolutely shut it down. The Dodgers relievers pitched 3 shutout innings and allowed just 1 hit between them. That got them their 32nd win of the year, the best in the NL.

On the offensive side of things, Mookie did Mookie things again. He hit his 14th homerun of the year to lead off the game against Merill Kelly. Betts has now homered 11 times in the month of May, the most by a Dodgers hitter since Roy Campanella slugged 12 back in 1953. 

The Dodgers and DBacks will go at it one more time on Sunday afternoon in the desert. Tyler Anderson gets the ball and will be going up against Zach Davies, who got hit hard by Los Angeles his last time out.

  1. Gonsolin had lingering shoulder issues last season, this year he is healthy and has learned how to pitch to contact to get deeper in the game. Most young pitchers are too fine with their pitches and do not trust the stuff that got them to the MLB. They think every pitch as to be perfect. Gonsolin has finally figured out you do not have to be perfect. Plus he has perfected a 4th pitch, a curve that he is getting strikes with. Gonsolin has a devastating Slider and Splitter with a solid Curve and a good Fastball with movement he is showing he can be a dominant pitcher in the rotation.
