The Dodgers have been an unwatchable mess for over three weeks now having lost 16 out of their last 21 games. Tuesday night’s series opener against the Seattle Mariners seemed like another usual Dodger loss. The club fell behind early when starter Walker Buehler allowed four earned runs, and the offense could only muster one run (on a Max Muncy homer) through six lifeless frames. But tonight, ended differently thank god. The Dodgers actually rallied for two runs in the seventh and three more in the bottom of the eighth. The big blow came from Gavin Lux. The super kid finally delivered with a three-run job that crushed the Mariners hopes and put the Dodgers in the lead for good. The bullpen hung onto the lead for once, as Garrett Cleavinger pitched a clean inning and Kenley Jansen didn’t blow the save. The Dodgers won 6-4.
Lux showed us his best at-bat of the year. The young second baseman has only tallied two hits at Dodger Stadium the entire season before tonight’s game against Seattle. He had two on Tuesday including the go-ahead three-run blast in the bottom of the eighth off of Rafael Montero that landed several rows up the right field pavilions. Lux was hitting just .209 entering the game, and that was his first home run of the season. Here’s hoping this gives them some confidence and they can I don’t know, maybe win a series.
