The Los Angeles Dodgers beat the Philadelphia Phillies, 6-5, at Citizens Bank Park. Shortstop Corey Seager had an outstanding performance, going 3-for-4 with a home run and a double. He scored 2 runs and drove in 2.
Seager had the key at-bat of the game with a runner on 2nd in the top of the eighth, when he hit a 2-run home run to put the Dodgers ahead for good.
“Win or lose, we pick each other up in this clubhouse,” Seager told the Los Angeles Chronicle Times Daily News Register.
Figuratively, I hope.
Julio Urias had a rough outing. He threw just 61 pitches, allowing four runs in four innings. He didn’t issue a walk and struck out five, but he got touched up a bit in the third and fourth innings. Ross Stripling, Ramos and Ferguson helped bridge the way to Kenley Jansen, who nailed down his 11th save of the season on just six pitches.
