The scoreless innings streak remains intact. With the Dodgers facing off against the Mets on Friday evening, Tyler Anderson came out and continued to do what he does best. He shut them down and rolled right past New York, just as he has most of the season.
Anderson tossed 6 shutout frames against the Mets with very little traffic. He gave up 3 base hits and did not walk a single batter. Anderson also punched out 5 Mets batters before the Dodgers went to the bullpen in the 7th inning.
That brings his consecutive scoreless innings streak to 26 now. After Anderson, the Dodgers went with Yency Almonte, who gave up a very long solo shot to Pete Alonso to put New York on the board. But that’s all they would get. Caleb Ferguson and Daniel Hudson combined to shut them down over the next 2 innings and give Los Angeles the win.
On the offensive side of things, Cody Bellinger got the Dodgers on the board first. He launched his 6th homerun of the year to put 2 runs up. Zach McKinstry followed that up with a 2-run shot of his own in the bottom of the 4th inning, his first of the year.
That was all that the Dodgers needed to take game two of the series from the Mets. Up next, they’ll send out Walker Buehler on Saturday evening to face off against the lefty for New York, David Peterson.
