The swept the Nationals in Washington, thanks to timely hitting and bullpen!! In a season where nothing has seemed to be going right, and in the midst of a 2-9 stretch of baseball, the Dodgers show signs of life, and flashes of the 2017 team that was so full of magic!
Going into the series, playing on the road with matchups against Scherzer and Strasburg, without Kershaw and lining up for our Boys, there wasn’t a lot of hope facing off against a red hot Nats team, who were 13-2 over their last 15 coming into the series. Friday nights game was rained out, setting up a double header on Saturday. went 6 IP with 9 K’s allowing just 1 ER in Game 1 on Saturday. Rich Hill left after just 2 pitches in Game 2, giving our bullpen an overload. All they did is outduel Scherzer. delivered a 2-run double in the Top of the 9th to take the lead. Today, we drove the nail in the coffin with 3 HR’s, with 4 of the 7 runs scored today coming in the 8th and 9th innings.
This weekend, , , , , each had a HR. had 2 saves. The bullpen pitched 15 innings, allowing just 4 ER’s!
All around, great sweep, great weekend....great day! ..
