Corey Seager knocked in 5 runs to help Los Angeles beat San Diego in a blowout, 12-1. The shortstop collected a single, a double, and a dinger, contributing mightily to the win putting Los Angeles at 20-13 this season.
With Los Angeles leading 9-0 in the top of the eighth, Seager came up to bat against San Diego pitcher Emilio Pagan. Seager hit a fastball to right for a 3-run home run. His fourth home run of the season put the Dodgers on top 12-0.
“It feels good to get this one,” Seager told the Los Angeles Chronicle. Doesn’t it always?
On the bump, Price had his best outing of the season — 7 IP, 4 H, 1 R/ER, 1 BB, 8 K, 102 pitches, 63 strikes. His season ERA is down to 2.81 and he continues to be more than just part of the price it cost to get Mookie. Ross Stripling finished off the game with two scoreless innings that netted him four strikeouts. He has a sparkling 0.71 ERA on the campaign.
