The Dodgers continue to find ways to win ballgames. Even when the bats aren’t necessarily firing on all cylinders, they’ve been grinding across runs and getting things done. They’ve been able to do that behind some stellar pitching over the course of the last week.
Tony Gonsolin got the start for the Dodgers last night on Jackie Robinson Day. He tossed 4 innings and gave up 3 hits and 3 walks. Gonsolin struck out 2, but once again needed a lot of pitches to get through his outing. He threw 74 pitches to get through his 4 innings of work.
Then Tyler Anderson came in behind Gonsolin once again, the same way he did in his last start. Anderson pitched 4 innings of his own, allowing one run to come across and striking out 4. He did not allow a walk and gave up just two total hits. As expected, Anderson is proving to be a huge weapon for the Dodgers out of relief.
In terms of offense, the Dodgers were pretty quiet aside from Gavin Lux and Trea Turner. Both of the speedy infielders tripled during the game, but Mookie Betts and Freddie Freeman combined to go 0-for-6 at the top of the lineup.
Craig Kimbrel also got his first taste of closing games at Dodger Stadium. He came in and induced a popup before getting two quick groundouts to lock down the save. Up next, the Dodgers will face off against the hard-throwing Hunter Greene at the Ravine on Saturday evening.
