Tuesday’s game was quite the nail-biter, mainly because the offense was nowhere to be found most of the game! Then again, it may just be that the Dodgers’ bats have spoiled fans the past week with a plethora of runs.

Tonights game was looking to bring fans back to reality, that is until Grandal put the team on his back leading the team to a 3-2 victory over the Nationals! Let’s take a look at the highlights!

Unfortunately, the game would take a quick turn for the worst thanks to Harper.

The game would grow stale after Harper’s home run, that is until another Nationals’ homer followed.

Howie had a couple of great plays to keep us in the game!

And then… It happened. Pederson walks and Puig singles giving Grandal the chance to make something happen, and boy did he!

This gives the Dodgers a 5 game winning streak and 12 straight games with at least one home run!

The Dodgers pick up their 5th straight win and look to make it 6 tomorrow with Urias on the mound. Tune in tomorrow at 7:10pm PST or just get the play-by-play by following us on twitter @DodgersNation! Go Blue!
