After ending the week in disappointing fashion against Cleveland, the Dodgers started this week looking like the dominant offensive team fans were hoping to consistently see this season. LA swept the Reds at Great American Ballpark, outscoring them 26-11 in the three-game series.
In the final game of the series, the Dodgers piled up ten runs on the Reds, blasting five home runs in the 10-5 daytime drubbing.
The Dodgers also accomplished something that according to SportsNet LA’s Joe Davis, the team hasn’t done since 1976: score runs in eight-consecutive innings.
Even we can follow Davis’ research team’s math. After putting up a bagel in the first, the Dodgers scored at least one run in every inning and scored a pair of runs in both the third and fourth innings. The Reds cut LA’s lead to 8-5 in the bottom of the seventh, but the Dodgers red hot just kept scoring.
Next up for the Dodgers is a three-game series against an Atlanta Braves team that’s only lost three games in the month of June.
Max Muncy’s Breakout Game?
Max Muncy certainly did his part in another Dodgers hit parade at Great American Ballpark. On Wednesday, Muncy went 3-for-4 and crushed a 434-foot home run off of Reds ace Hunter Greene. After the game, Muncy commented on his “rewarding day” at the plate.
“It feels really good. Just getting results is always nice. We’ve been putting in a lot of work and unfortunately, I put in a little too much work. Not giving my arm enough time to heal so trying to find that balance. Today was a very rewarding day and it felt really nice.”
Dodgers fans have heard several times this season that Muncy is close to breaking out at the plate, but Thursday was a step in the right direction.
