The Los Angeles Dodgers forgot how to lose. Austin Barnes’ game-winning solo home run in the bottom of the eighth inning broke a 0-0 tie and extended the Padres’ winning streak to 11 games.
The Los Angeles Dodgers won the third game of their three-game home series against the Milwaukee Brewers, 1-0, at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles, California, U.S., on Sunday.
The National League West-leading Dodgers improved to 74-46 on the season with the three-game sweep of Milwaukee, extending their winning streak to 11 games. They are a dominant 15-1 in August. Meanwhile, Central Division-leading Milwaukee, which has lost three straight, is 65-57.
The Dodgers’ Lance Lynn and Milwaukee’s Corbin Burns pitched a masterpiece. The Dodgers were unable to capitalize on their chances, as the Brewers were unable to capitalize on their offense. The Dodgers had runners on first and second with no outs in the first inning and two outs in the third, while Milwaukee had runners on first and second with no outs in the second, two outs in the fourth, runners on first and third with no outs in the sixth, and runners on first and second with no outs in the eighth.
The game was tied at 0-0 in the eighth inning. With the bases loaded, Austin Barnes came to the plate and launched a dramatic solo home run to left field. He saw a first-pitch strike from Joel Pyjamps, then took the second pitch, an 83.5-mph (134-kilometer) body slider, for his biggest home run of the season. It was the game-winning hit.
Lin backed up the win with seven innings of four-hit ball, one walk and three strikeouts. He was followed by Caleb Ferguson and Evan Phillips, with Ferguson picking up his seventh win of the season and Phillips earning his 18th save.온라인카지노
At the plate, Mookie Betts and Barnes led the offense with multi-hit efforts. The duo accounted for four of the team’s hits on the day.
Milwaukee starter Burns’ seven innings of two-run ball with two walks and nine strikeouts was not enough in the loss. The losing pitcher gave up the game-winning home run. A multi-hit game from No. 9 hitter Tyrone Taylor also fell short.
The Brewers return home for a three-game weekend series against the third-place Miami Marlins in the National League East starting on April 19. Milwaukee then travels to Texas to face the first-place Texas Rangers in the American League West.
