Dodgers: Gavin Lux Wears Walker Buehler’s Tight Pants on His Start Days

This odd superstition might stick around after the win Tuesday.



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.

  1. Maybe the whole team should change and wear those pants until it wears off, seriously! Anyway finally almost a clean game—- guys setting the table, clutch hits, shut-down Kenley making a comeback, good defense, just 3 mistake- pitches by Walker but other than that a good outing. Hope Lux have found the groove because it is needed @ that spot in the order w/ the bottom half of line-up nonexistent. The height of the moment is too big for guys like Neuse, Raley, and Peters. I like Beaty’s approach in the box, reminds me of a pesky Utley, always finding a way to get on. Now let’s start a new winning streak @ home.

    • P.S.: JT, shake off whatever is bothering you…..-4 K’s very un-JT like w/ some missed centercut pitches and runners on base.
