Tyler Glasnow Thankful Dodgers Backed Him Up Following Poor Outing

After losing Friday’s night in San Francisco, the Los Angeles Dodgers hoped their ace would wash away the bad taste of the Giants’ walk-off victory.

Frustration mounted early and often when Tyler Glasnow took the mound on Saturday at Oracle Park in front of 39,663 fans. He was shelled for five runs and seven hits in an abbreviated three-inning start, forcing manager Dave Roberts to turn to his bullpen earlier than planned.

Eight pitchers combined to limit the Giants to one earned run over the final eight innings and the Dodgers beat the Giants 14-7 in 11 innings.

“The feel [for my pitches] was completely lost today from my warmups to the game,” Glasnow said. “It was just one of those days where I had no command of anything. … From pitch one, I’d think my release point was at one place, and it’s at another place. It was just kind of all over the place today.”

Glasnow couldn’t adjust which was uncharacteristic but the bullpen came in to save him. He expressed his gratefulness for them after the game.

“I didn’t today,” he said. “I think it’s more about just trying to eliminate thought and just go out there and compete. A lot of stuff got away from me, and I’m just glad the team could come back and win the game.”
