LOS ANGELES (AP) – Clayton Kershaw made six innings, scored 11 points in a reasonably comfortable win for the Los Angeles Dodgers, and was disappointed with himself.
“It was not great today,” said Dodgers, a longtime ace. “There are not many positives. “When your team gives you so much advantage, you have to do everything you can to not give up so many runs, to save your bull as much as possible.”
After embarrassing and slipping over the past 3 1/2 weeks, the Dodgers are coming out of their long spring breeze, once again defending champions, raising both their game and their standards to normal.
During the second run of the Ux race, Max Mansi hit three-pointer hops, and on Friday night, Kershaw scored the season high for a 9-6 victory over Los Angeles over the Miami Marlins.
Muncy scored at home for the third time in a row, while Mookie Betts and Austin Barnes scored a double RBI for the Dodgers. They won by three straight points, four to five, quickly moving to an 8-0 score after hanging out after the Marlins gave Kershaw five runs.
“I think we’re just coming back,” Mansi said. “I always say that one of the things we do very well is play one game at a time. When losses began to accumulate, we did not. We thought about the games of the past. We were trying to look ahead. We did not do the thoughts that we are doing well now. ”
Los Angeles lost 15 of 20 games after a 13-2 start to the season, but the Dodgers opened the home nine-game winning streak with their first three wins in four weeks. All nine beginners hit the opening of the series against Miami.
Kershaw (6-3) won for the sixth time in eight starts, although he matched the high performance of the season. He also introduced the RBI single, scoring in the Dodgers’ impressive second trick.
“We still have a good club,” said manager Dave Roberts. “We had it a week ago, but we just find ways to win.”
Adam Duvall hit the three-run homer, and Gareth Cooper ran two runs to the Marlins, who lost three straight’s seven to five.
Miami’s Sandy Alcantara (1-3) did not miss the second-fifth game in the shortest start of his five-year league career, securing eight runs from seven strokes, walking twice, while scoring just four.
“Sandy came out and threw one of those games where everything just went wrong for him,” Cooper said. “To be honest, you’ve not been used to it with him for the last few years. It just speaks to the team we have to respond to. You will never give up in such a situation. ”
After Chris Taylor took second place in the lead, the next six Dodgers made hits, including AJ Pollock’s RBI single, which then dropped out of the game, tightening its delicate left wrist.
In Cooper’s third RBI single, Miami doubled the Dodgers’ 8-0 lead, followed by Duvall’s 417-meter kick.
“That game could be one of those games that just went away,” said Miami manager Don Matlingley. “I was really happy with how the boys struggled all day. Another big hit և we are in that game. The bull did a good job keeping it right there. ”
The Marlins loaded the bases, scoring one point with two points in the eighth, but Victor Gonzalez hit Jon on the Bert, ending the field.
Kenley Jansen finished ninth in his seventh save with nine chances.
Alcantara has made at least five innings in each of his first eight starts this season, but during his two careers at Dodger Stadium, he has allowed 14 runs in just six 1/3 innings.
“Everything worked today, but I was just absent for a while,” Alcantara said.
