The game started off well for the Dodgers, 5-1, only for Padres to creep back up to 9-5, and in the 8th something changed in the Dodgers, not wanting to accept defeat, in the 8th inning all homers by, Max Muncy, AJ Pollock, Cody Bellinger (Yes "can't his a ball" Cody hit a homer) and Corey Seager (hitting a 2-run HR) bring the score back up to 11-9. With the last few strikeouts by Kenley Jansen, Dodgers close the games and reach their 102 wins this season.
That was a hell of a game, full of hope, doubt and everyone was either panicking or screaming, I sure was. When I tell you I've basically lost my voice, I mean it. That 8th inning the whole time I was on the edge of my seat (I might be lying a little bit because I was more like on my bed lying down, but...) starting off with the Muncy homer, only for everyone following to all make home runs like? what is this world we are living in?
Unfortunately, this action-packed night comes with a bit of sad news. Dodgers CF Gavin Lux had a nasty collision with the wall in an attempt to catch the ball. He was taken off and replaced with Cody.
How Gavin is doing is currently unknown, we are all praying that it was nothing bad and hopefully after a rest day he can come back into action.
Dodgers takes the win against San Diego Padres for the 8th consecutive time. Dodgers still 2 behind as Giants take a 1-0 Win against Diamondbacks
