The Dodgers lost yet again on Tuesday, pathetically getting swept by the Cubs at Wrigley Field in a split double-header. The Dodgers continue to find excruciating ways of losing, but stuck to the tride and true losing methods of 2021, namely anemic offense and terrible relief pitching. They didn’t hit at all in their 7-1 opening game loss, scoring just the lone run off seven hits. In the second game, they had a lead, but the bullpen fronted by rookie Mitchell White blew a two-run lead with just one out remaining to secure the win.
But hey Justin Turner and Max Muncy both went deep in the night cap. Muncy’s solo blast tied the game and Turner’s long ball actually padded the Dodger’s brief lead giving them a 3-1 lead at that time. Turner is the lone Dodger hitter having a good season, but it’s good to see Muncy hitting the long ball again. The Dodgers certainly suck this year, but let’s look at the bright side and watch some Dodger dingers.
