The Los Angeles Dodgers just finished a four-game series with the Arizona Diamondbacks. It was tough going for the Dodgers. First they lost two in a row to the Pittsburgh Pirates at Dodger Stadium and then they started this series with the DBacks with two losses.
In the second game they got a good start from Alex Wood, but the bullpen couldn’t hold on for a win, nor could the Dodger Bats produce any runs.
Zack Greinke sat out the third game due to a sore calf, which was the opportunity for manager Don Mattingly to try out pitcher Carlos Frias. He went four innings and the bullpen was able to hold onto the win.
The fourth game started rough for the big ace, Clayton Kershaw. He gave up a run in the second, third and fourth innings. He went five innings, but you may have heard about the heated exchange Kershaw had when Mattingly signaled Juan Nicasio would go to the mound for the sixth inning.
By the time the game was over, the situation was behind everyone on the team.
The Dodgers bats exploded for six runs in the bottom of the fifth, capped off by Chris Heisey’s grand slam.
