Got a little too close for comfort at the end, but the Dodgers pulled it off! Walker Buehler returned from the DL and made his 1st start for the Dodgers in more than a month. There was obvious rust with his offspeed pitches, but it was a solid start. He gave up 6 hits with 2 of those being home runs to Calhoun, but the other hits were all soft contact. So that’s a plus. His final line: 5 IP, 6 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 1 BB, 5 SO. Max Muncy was the offense tonight! He hit a Solo HR (22) in the 1st inning to put the Dodgers up 1-0! With the Dodgers down by 1 in the 7th, Max Muncy came up with runners on 1st and 2nd and all he did was hit a shot into right center to score Forsythe to make it 2-2; an overthrow by Calhoun to home plate allowed Pederson to score and make it 3-2 Dodgers! Jansen was unavailable tonight, so the 9th belonged to Alexander. He got into some trouble after he allowed a double to Ohtani and an infield single to put runners on 1st and 3rd, but Alexander did what he does best, which is getting a ground ball double play to end the game! Glad they won this one after how the 1st game ended in Anaheim last weekend. Wood gets the ball tomorrow!
