The Dodgers welcomed the Mets into town literally the day after getting swept by the Pirates. That had all of the makings of a bad time for them on Thursday night against a very good New York team. But the good news is that they had Tony Gonsolin on the mound for them.
And Gonsolin did not disappoint. He came out and gave up just 2 hits against New York en route to a dominating win. It was Tony’s 6th win of the season and he has yet to take the loss in a decision. He went 6 strong and did not allow a run.
Tony is now among the league leaders in ERA with a 1.59 mark, and he is tops in the National League. After the game, the Dodgers pitcher spoke about his simple approach. And it’s about as basic as you can get for a big-league pitcher.
“Just going out there and throwing strikes and trying to trust my stuff. Letting the defense play and they definitely played today. So yeah, just trying to keep that up and keep that going moving into the next start.”
Up next, the Dodgers will send out Tyler Anderson on Friday night in Los Angeles. He will face off against Chris Bassitt, who has had a decent start to the year. Anderson has been phenomenal filling in while Clayton Kershaw and Andrew Heaney are out with injuries.
