Things are getting a little bit tense as the Dodgers head to the playoffs. On Saturday evening’s game, fans had to hold their breath when they saw Mookie Betts limping through the dugout.
Betts was hit by a pitch on his hip in the very first at-bat against the Angels’ Julio Teheran. Betts stayed in the game to run for himself and eventually came in to score. He was later replaced by Enrique Hernandez in right field when they came out on defense.

While it was likely a precautionary move, Betts did look like he was in pain while walking through the dugout. If he has to miss any sort of time at this point, it would be devastating for the Dodgers and their postseason hopes. They are set to kick off the wildcard series this week.
More details to come.
