Chris Heisey drew a one-out walk in the fifth, but was quickly erased on a double play ball from Matt Carson. Joe Wieland took over on the mound and set the side down in order.

In the top of the sixth, Corey Seager worked a walk to bring up Wednesday’s home run hitter, O’Koyea Dickson. The first baseman promptly doubled down the line to drive Seager in and give the Dodgers a 2-0 lead.

Wieland got into some trouble in the bottom half, allowing a two-out hit and walk before getting a strikeout to end the threat. Austin Barnes drew a leadoff walk in the seventh and Darnell Sweeney reached on an error, which put two runners on with no outs for Alex Guerrero, who flied out to deep center.

With runners on the corners and one out, Travis Witherspoon grounded into an inning-ending double play. Daniel Coulombe was the next Dodger reliever to toss a scoreless inning and the Dodgers carried their 2-0 lead into the eighth.

Seager drew a one-out walk in the top of the ninth, however this time around Dickson wasn’t able to drive him in. That’s doesn’t mean all was lost in the inning, as Kyle Jensen hit an opposite field two-run home run to extend the Dodgers’ lead to 4-0.

Non-roster invite Ryan Butcher threw a scoreless eighth inning, then Scott Schebler doubled in two runs to give the Dodgers’ a 6-0 lead in the ninth. Minor-League pitcher Jeremy Kehrt entered in the bottom of the ninth and gave up a leadoff home run to Courtney Hawkins.

Kehrt allowed a one-out single before recording the final outs of the Dodgers’ 6-1 win.
