Sloppy play with defensive errors and stranded runners costs Dodgers dearly – Dodgers Digest

After yesterday’s crushing loss to the Phillies, the Dodgers lost again tonight in a very close game, which actually made everything more frustrating. Instead of losing, they made a lot of errors in the field and at the plate that ultimately cost them the game in a 4-3 loss.


Kyle Schwarber The scoring and the game began for the Phillies offense against Gavin’s Stone by hitting a home run for an early 1-0 lead.

Stone was in trouble again in the second inning after a double, a single and a stolen base led to a run coming in on a groundout to double the lead to 2-0.

Meanwhile, the Dodgers managed to weaken the Phillies’ starter. Cristobal SanchezAfter getting only one Shohei Ohtani single and stolen base through three innings, the Dodgers rallied in the fourth with singles from Teoscar Hernandez and Andy’s Pages hogging things with one out, allowing a Miguel Rojas rolled to reduce the deficit to 2-1.

In the next entry, a Enrique Hernandez walk and Austin Barnes The single caused the runners to be cornered again with one out, and this time Ohtani singled to tie the game at 2-2.

Unfortunately, they were unable to score points on both occasions, and after two double plays helped Stone overcome scoreless 3rd and 4th innings, the 5th was… unlucky for him.

With Merrifield Stone ended the inning with a routine fly out to Andy Pages in center, who fumbled the ball into the lights for a triple. Stone recovered to get two ground balls for outs without allowing the runner to score. He then got another ground ball, but Miguel Rojas, of all people, didn’t field it cleanly for an infield hit and a run. After a double, Stone was pulled.

Antonio Banda He came in and gave up another ground ball that bounced and became an infield single to add to the frustration and make it 4-2. He was able to get out of the inning after a double steal attempt was nullified at home.

Blake Trenen He replaced Banda in the sixth, getting a pair of strikeouts in a clean inning, Alex Vesia achieved a seventh goalless and Daniel Hudson A 1-2-3 series followed in the eighth inning, so the Phillies remained quiet at least for the rest of the game.


On the other hand, Sanchez was done after a clean sixth inning, and the bullpen made things interesting. A leadoff double for Chris Taylor It was followed by confusion James Outman in which he sank into an 0-2 hole by squaring up on two bunt attempts and then striking out on the third pitch. It hurt more when Austin Barnes singled to score the runners, and then Ohtani struck out and Teoscar Hernandez popped out to end the threat. Just a sequence of errors that always seem to cost them dearly.

They rallied again in the eighth, however, when Andy Pages’ double was followed by an apparent double by Miguel Rojas to make it 4-3. However, he was called out at second after Bryson Stott He appeared to push his foot out of the bag, and that nearly ended the rally.

The Dodgers screwed up in the ninth.
