The Dodgers rode a vintage Walker Buehler performance to a 4-0 win last night to guarantee at least a series split against the Reds. They haven’t issued a walk in the last two games and have bounced back nicely from the 7-2 loss to open the series. Today, they finish off the home portion of the season series vs the Reds before traveling to Cincinnati next weekend as Landon Knack returns to face off with Hunter Greene.

Mookie Betts is back in the lineup after getting his first day off last night. Austin Barnes catches Knack and the pseudo-bullpen game. The Reds stole five bases off Barnes and Dodger pitching on Thursday (he did catch Elly De La Cruz stealing on a weird delayed steal), so maybe just don’t let any Reds get on first.


A couple pitching-related roster moves. Knack and recently acquired Anthony Banda were both called up today. Ricky Vanasco and J.P. Feyereisen were optioned (Feyereisen allegedly came out to “Shut Up And Dance” last night, so he probably should just be DFA’d), and Connor Brogdon was moved to the 60-day IL to make room on the 40-man for Banda.


First pitch is scheduled for 1:10 PM PT and will be shown on SportsNet LA.
