LOS ANGELES (AP) – Although Padres and Dodgers know it’s just spring, every remarkable thing that has happened in their seven games in the last 10 days has proven that this match is far more important than your April baseball average. level:
When the clear autumn shock settled on the Chavez River before their seventh grueling match stretched into extra time on Sunday evening, both teams and their fans could be forgiven for thinking of bigger and colder nights along the way.
“Definitely a good preview of what’s to come in October,” said Eric Hosmer of San Diego.
Padres could return a lot of extra heat back home after an impressive return ն.
Fernando Tatis Jr. captured the fly sacrificed by Hosmer in the 11th move;
Manny Machado played the RBI connecting single in the ninth start for the Padres, who were claiming their third win over these four Southern California rivals in a dramatically similar way.
“I think we made an announcement, of course,” said Hosmer, who also had an RBI single in the eighth. “The whole world of baseball was watching these games. I think we showed that we can compete with these guys. We respect who they are, we respect what they do, but we will definitely not back down from them. ”
Padres was postponed to 7. 1: entered the seventh, but ran two runs in each of the next three innings, forcing the defending World Series champions in extra time. In his 11th unbeaten run, San Diego won its last five fights with the Dodgers for the fourth time, taking the top two at Petco Park over the weekend.
“It seemed like a lot of missed opportunities and then some good moments, but we couldn’t close the door on them when we needed to,” said Chris Taylor, who hit the third of three runs for Los Angeles. “We know we did not play our best baseball, it’s one where we have to take care of business, we win.”
Los Angeles failed to score in the 10th with a loaded ground – one out. Tim Hill (1-2) escaped the block by hitting the crushing Clayton Kershaw and the newcomer Diggers Peters, who could have finished the game if he had not hit the fast ball above the strike zone.
Grandma started 11th in the second, stole the third, and easily scored from Gareth Clevening (0-1) during Hosmer’s long flight (0-1), making his Dodgers debut in his second career championship.
Mark Melancանկn then earned his eighth save, retiring Mookie Betts and Corey Seager, securing the rubber game with two runners, which lasted a few seconds to less than five hours.
“I think the net (result) is that they outperformed us,” said Dodgers manager Dave Roberts, who made no secret of his taste for his bulls’ poor performance. “All the games were close, but they outscored us by more than seven games. … It’s more about us. “When we play well, we win.”
Pinch-shooter Sheldon Noyce settled before Taylor’s three-run shot was fired by the Dodgers at the start of the fifth run.
But Victor Caratini had two runs for San Diego in the seventh, և he finished ninth ում he scored the ninth before Machado brought home Tatis, who had scored his fifth goal in three games in response to fourth.
The Dodgers Bull wasted an outstanding start by Dustin May, who scored two goals to earn a score of 6 out of the top 10.
Joe Masgrove worked in Padres’ three innings, losing two runs և three hits on 77 pitches, but in the first five innings the Dodgers also blocked nine runners.
This high-intensity series had even more drama between the games. “
Dodgers startup Trevor Bauer took to social media to ask if Tatis had looked back at the catch signal from his second homer on Saturday. Bauer warned that signs of theft are “things that will motivate you in other games.”
Bauer also quoted the video of the incident in a message sent to Tatis. “If you need to know what height is expected so badly, just ask Dad well.”
Grandma responded with her Photoshop version, in which she was holding a baby in Bauer’s face, with the caption “Tranquilo hijo” (Calm down, son).
“I think it might have been a little bit confusing for them,” Hosmer said later. “I do not think he (Grandma) was really looking for signs. “I have nothing but respect for Trevor.”
Padres. LF Tommy Pham pulled with his left ankle stretched as he ran second.
Dodgers. Roberts had to go deeper than his bull wanted because David Price strained his fracture in the seventh move.
