Tuesday night felt like a huge night for the Dodgers. Playing from behind, they came back late in the game and secured a win over a very good Seattle team. Notably. it was the first time they won a close game since beating the Padres in late April.
Gavin Lux came up big with a 3-run shot in the 8th inning to boost the Dodgers. With Los Angeles trailing by a run. Lux’s mammoth blast gave Los Angeles the 6-4 lead that Kenley Jansen would lock down the following inning.
After the game, Lux was asked about the tight pants that he was sporting during the game. The Dodgers second baseman gave a surprising answer that had fans across Twitter dying of laughter.
They’re actually Walker’s pants, whenever Walker is out there rocking the tight pants I’ll rock them with him. But they might be here to stay now, we’ll see.
One quick look between the two Dodgers players and you can tell that Gavin is definitely wearing Buehler’s pants. I’m not sure how this tradition started, but it’s one that has to carry over after a hit like that.

The way things have been going for the Dodgers, they’ll take whatever good luck charm they can find. Even if it means that Gavin has to wear Walker’s pants for the rest of the year. LA finishes up the mini-series against Seattle tonight with Julio Urias on the mound.
