Teoscar Hernández Credits Dodgers Starters For Keeping Team In Games While Offense Sorts Issues Out

The Los Angeles Dodgers scored just enough on Saturday to beat the Colorado Rockies 4-1. The key to the victory was Yoshinobu Yamamoto who got through six innings while giving up one run and seven hits. He struck out seven and walked one to improve to 6-2 with a 3.32 ERA in 12 starts.

The starting pitching has been the bright spot for the Dodgers, who were recently on a five-game losing streak. Outfielder Teoscar Hernández told Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times that the starting pitchers have kept the team in ballgames.

The starting pitchers are dealing right now, keeping us in the game, giving us the opportunity to score runs so we can get back in the game and win,” Hernández said. “We’re not going to put 10 runs on the board every day, but we try to maximize every single thing to make our lead bigger.”

Yamamoto stranded two runners in the first, third, and sixth innings. On his season-high 101st pitch of the night, he got Elehuris Montero to ground out to shortstop with runners on second and third to end the sixth, preserving a 4-1 lead.

Daniel Hudson and Blake Treinen kept the Rockies off the scoreboard in the seventh and eighth, setting up Evan Phillips for a save in his first appearance since May 3. He retired the side in order.
