The Dodgers came into town fully ready to extend their winning streak. After sweeping past the Giants and Cubs over the past week, taking on a lowly Pittsburgh team seemed like all but a guarantee. As it turns out, playing that much might have been too much for them.
The offense came out very flat against Joe Quintana. Even the hard-hit balls were robbed in the gaps by outfielders, and the Pirates continued to bloop in hits. And even though Julio Urias pitched another strong game, it wasn’t nearly enough.
Urias ended up going 6 innings and allowing a whopping 11 hits. The Pirates continued to bloop balls in and find gaps though, resulting in 2 runs. But the last run came on a solo shot when the Dodgers sent Urias out for the 7th inning.
That was pretty much the story of the game in what ended up being a little bit of a snoozer. The Dodgers added a run on a solo shot by Edwin Rios in the 9th inning to avoid the shutout, but that’s all they would get.
Up next, the Dodgers will send out Tony Gonsolin on Tuesday evening in Pittsburgh. He faces off against Bryse Wilson, who will be pitching in his 6th game of the season. He has tallied a 3.79 ERA and a 0-1 record so far this year.
