In his first career start on Sunday, Alex Guerrero had three hits and four RBIs, including a home run. The Cuban infielder got the start a day after Justin Turner and Juan Uribe left early due to separate issues.
Guerrero got another start at third base on Monday at Dodger Stadium against the Seattle Mariners, but was hitless through his first three at-bats. The Dodgers had battled back from a four-run deficit to eventually tie the game. It remained tied until the 10th inning when Guerrero came to bat with the bases loaded and two outs:
Guerrero launched the 2-2 pitch into the gap to score Andre Ethier and give the Dodgers the 6-5 victory. It became the 28-year-old’s first career walk-off hit and first of the Dodgers young season.
The Dodgers ride a modest two-game win streak into their matchup on Tuesday with the Mariners at Dodger Stadium.
