In their first meeting since the 2019 NLDS, the Dodgers exacted revenge against the World Series champion Washington Nationals by an 8-3 score. Gone are those bad memories from October … he wrote, unconvincingly.
Mookie Betts, proving to be quite the useful mammal, led the Dodgers attack by going 2-for-4 with 2 gigantic dongs. He has three homers and 11 RBI in the young season.
“Chalk one up for the good guys,” Betts said. “I’m sure our fans enjoyed that win.“
Epic quote, Mookie.
Alex Wood fired 6 1/3 strong innings in route to his first victory of the season. He allowed five hits, two runs (both earned), walked three and struck out five. He, uncharacteristically, got five outs via the fly ball. His sinker just wasn’t doing much sinking on the day.
An eighth-inning home run off the bat of Howie Kendrick (sigh) off Caleb Ferguson was the only run the Nats got off the Dodgers’ bullpen. Kenley Jansen allowed two hits in the ninth, but escaped otherwise unscathed.
