At this point, the Dodgers have to feel like one of the luckiest teams in all of baseball. They picked up Tyler Anderson this off-season with the intention of keeping him around as depth. Ideally, they wouldn’t need him at all.
But if last season taught us all anything, it’s that you can never have too much pitching. The Dodgers knew that and scooped him up for their staff.
Anderson was back out on the mound again for the Dodgers on Sunday. He went 6 innings again and dominated the whole way through. The southpaw gave up 5 hits but punched out 6 and kept up his impressive scoreless streak.
On the offensive side of things, Will Smith got things going in the 2nd inning. He launched a solo shot to get the Dodgers on the board, while Freddie Freeman and Trea Turner drove in a pair the following inning.
That’s all the Dodgers needed to take the series sweep. The bullpen locked it down with Craig Kimbrel slamming the door in the 9th inning. That was the 10th save for Kimbrel this season.
