San Francisco — Giants dressed in cream sicles. However, it was the Dodgers that melted.
Cody Bellinger’s slow error at the first start of the season’s first baseman, which led to the bottom of the eight innings in his fifth play in eight days, led to the victory when the San Francisco Giants defeated the Dodgers. I opened the door. -1, Tuesday night at Oracle Park.
The Dodgers have lost five of these important NL West showdown games. The last three are after eight draws or leads. The latest gut punch pushed the Dodgers three games behind the number one Giants, who actively wore an orange “City Connect” uniform on Tuesday.
The Dodgers bullpen’s most trusted members have now prepared them for a disaster.
Blake Treinen played 2 on 2 out in the 7th inning, with a pinch hitter Steven Duggar.
However, the eighth time he walked the first two batters of Buster Posey and Mike Yastrzemski and raised Darin Ruf without an out. Raff hit a grounder on second baseman Max Muncy. Muncie kept it clean and thought about tagging the runners from the beginning, but chose to throw to first base for at least one particular out.
Bellinger handled the throw and looked second, but mysteriously chose to fire the throw to third base behind Posey. His throw sailed high over third base towards the net in front of the seat. Posey trots home with a victorious run.
The decisive error was the Dodgers’ 63rd (third in the National League) this season, and the decisive run was the 57th earned run they allowed this season (most in MLB).
However, the unsupported attack put the Dodgers on the eight tightrope walks.
Mookie Betts (hips), Gavin Lux (hamstrings) and Corey Seager (hands) are back, while Muncie (parental leave) and Bellinger (hamstrings) are back on Tuesday due to the lack of regular casts. did not. The Dodgers attack was sporadic. It was the best in the past week and managed only 26 runs in the last 8 games.
Giants starter Logan Webb remained hitless in four innings and retired 12 of the first 13 Dodgers batters (only Justin Turner’s walk broke things).
Bellinger led the single five times through the shift and moved second on the ground out. When Billy McKinney hit a drive into the field gap in the middle right, he scored – ran cautiously –. McKinney was trying to double it.
The Dodgers had another chance in the eighth inning when Luke Raley led the single and Chris Taylor doubled to third place with one out. However, Muncie bounced off the ground roughly on first base. He went home to get Rayleigh. Turner jumped out to end the threat.
