Denver — Just as the 2020 Mookie Betts made him feel his presence, the 2021 Mookie Betts problem recurred.
Betts was a 4 to 4 multi-hit game four times in a row. On Saturday night, he beat the Colorado Rockies 9-2 at Coors Field, scoring the Dodgers’ first three runs.
However, Betts got out of the game after stepping into second base in the game’s third double. This is the seventh gift when Rocky center fielder Garrett Hampson and right fielder Charlie Blackmon are about to collide on a warning track.
The official word from the Dodgers was that Betts left the game with an inflammation of his right hip. This is a new addition to the list of “persistent things” I quoted when I withdrew from the All-Star game last week.
After attending the exhibition game and all the festivals that accompany it, Betts is back clean. Whatever luxury spas, luxury resorts, and secluded wellness retreats welcomed him for a four-day break, they must have been ready to win the support of celebrities.
Betts led the double in two consecutive games. Max Muncy’s RBI single drove him home.
After two innings, Betts sent a solo home run to the Rockies bullpen in the center right field.
In the sixth inning, Betts doubled again to lead the left field corner and scored again with Muncie’s RBI single.
Throughout the six innings, Betts was 3 to 3 against Rockies starter Kyle Freeland, while the Dodgers’ remaining lineup was 21 to 3.
The Dodgers starter Walker Buehler returned the first two leads, allowing for the second and third single runs. After Ryan McMahon’s two outs and three RBIs doubled, however, Buehler dominated the Rocky Mountain lineup and did not allow another base runner in his seven innings. Buehler has retired the last 13 Rockies batters he faced (6 strikeouts).
AJ Pollock extended the Dodgers’ lead on his seventh lead-off home run, and after three batters, Betts drove another line drive towards the wall in the center right field. Hampson attempted to dive when both Hampson and Blackmon tracked and Blackmon flashed in front of him.
The ball doubled in and Betts slowly trotted to second base. Dave Roberts and the trainer soon met him, and Betts soon left the game. It was 7-9 in the first two games after the break and 12-16 in the last four games.
The Dodgers opened the game after Betts left. Manchester City hit a bets-free home run on his eighth home run and two more home runs on his ninth home run. Justin Turner has added a two-run double for the ninth time to clear the Dodgers’ eight consecutive victories against the Rocky Mountains since his first day defeat at Coors Field.
