Dodgers rally to defeat Arizona, 3-2
To pitch the top of the ninth, Craig Kimbrel entered the game. He threw a pitch that hit Jake McCarthy. The call was disputed by the Dodgers, but it stood. McCarthy seconded. He was tagged after coming off the bag on his slide, according to the replay. Dave Roberts could only ask for a replay because he had already used his challenge. McCarthy was called out after the umpires granted it. Then Christian Walker hit a home run. Carson Kelly made a base on balls. Josh Rojas took a step. Sergio Alcantara was unsuccessful.
Reyes Moronta, a former Dodger, entered the game in an effort to get his second series save. Cody Bellinger hit a right-center double. Trea Turner made a short grounder. On purpose, Freddie Freeman was walked. Between third and short, Will Smith smacked a bouncer into the hole. The shortstop dived to a halt but was unable to play. One out and bases loaded. Joe Mantiply, a lefty, will take Moronta’s spot. Everyone was safe after Max Muncy hit a lazy roller to third. There is one out and a tied score. Justin Turner is on base. On three pitches, he is thrown out. To win the game, Mookie Betts singled to left on a full-count pitch while pinch-hitting for Joey Gallo.
