Dodgers: Bats Continue to Roll in Sweep Over the Reds



The Dodgers came into Sunday afternoon’s game against the Reds with the chance to sweep. With a 4-game series on the line, Los Angeles turned to Andrew Heaney to get things done against Tyler Mahle. And he did not disappoint. 

The bats continued to crush and Heaney did what he did in the first start, only better. With a 7-2 record, the Dodgers now sit in first place in the National League West. Right back at the top where they belong. 

Andrew Heaney Continues to Roll

Heaney is coming off of an outing in Minnesota where he got Dodgers fans very excited. He tossed 4.1 innings against the Twins, only allowing a run to come across due to a defensive miscue. He followed that up with a gem on Sunday, twirling 6 innings of 1-hit ball against the Reds. 

Heaney got 11 Reds players out via the strikeout even though he issued 3 walks along the way. But he did allow just the 1 hit, steamrolling the Cincinnati offense in the process. If he keeps this up, the Dodgers rotation is going to be deadly.

Dodgers Bats Come Alive Again

The offense once again did that thing where they erupted for one really big inning. The Dodgers scored 7 runs in the 4th inning, starting with a Max Muncy double to score a pair. Two more doubles by Will Smith and Chris Taylor as well as a Freddie Freeman single capped off the huge inning. 

In terms of the bullpen, Alex Vesia came in to toss a scoreless frame in the 7th inning. Justin Bruihl threw two innings as well, allowing one earned run and punching out three batters. Up next, the Dodgers will take on the Braves in Los Angeles. Clayton Kershaw gets the start against Huascar Ynoa.
