LOS ANGELES – The Dodgers still have a heartbeat in the NL West race, and it was throbbing late in the game.
Corey Cigar led Homer with a two-run lead in the eighth inning, when Los Angeles went deep four times to beat the San Diego Padres 11-9 on Wednesday night.
Dodgers manager Dave Roberts called it “a crazy explosion.”
Defending World Series champions Max Munsi and AJ Pollock trailed by Emilio Pagan (-3–3) before trailing by -6- tra. With an out, Cody Bellinger launches a shot to the right field that blocks the game. Pinch-hitter Justin Turner doubled from deep left and Cigar shot with two outs on the right.
“It’s a whirlwind in a very short time,” Seager said.
Thanks to their dazzling comeback, the play-off-dozers have two games left from the NL West-led San Francisco with four games in the regular season. The Giants beat Arizona 1-0.
“We’re still trying to achieve a goal and still fighting for it,” Cigar said.
Many fans had already left Dodger Stadium, but those who remained were on their feet in eighth place, chanting and cheering the crowd into a frenzy.
“We never gave up,” Cigar said. “We felt the whole time in that game.”
For the first time since the September 5, 2016 innings against Arizona, the Dodgers shut down Jack Green four times. Cigars also played in that game.
Mookie Bates hit a single shot in seventh to start the rally, and Pollock made the first two run homers.
Los Angeles went ahead -0-0 and 5-1 on one night when Max Scherzer struggled and his second didn’t make any direct decisions.
David Price (5-2) finished eighth to win. Kenley Janssen dismissed the team in ninth place for the 37th save.
Munsir Homer is the 36th highest of his career.
“I went back and looked at each pitch, all 20,” Pagán said. “The only thing I didn’t like was Munshi’s injury. This has been happening to me for a very long time, in my opinion, a very good thing. “
The late lightning strike on September 1, 200, reminded me of a game between teams. The Dodgers hit four consecutive homers on the ninth floor, and Nomar Garciapara’s two-run homer in the tenth gave them an 11-10 win that put Los Angeles in first place.
Garciapara was at the ballpark on Wednesday night. Roberts was a member of the 2006 Padres team.
“It definitely reminded me of that night. It’s a lot like that, “said Roberts. “It feels a lot better than the visiting dugout in this dugout.”
Sherzar dropped out of his toughest start since joining the Dodgers from Washington on the Her0 July trading deadline.
The three-time Sai Young Award winner gave up six runs পাঁচ five earned-and a season-high 11 hits in 5 1/3 innings. The right-hander, whose 2.2 ERA was the lowest in coming to the NL, hit four and no one walked. He allowed two homers, only the sixth time this season he has made multiple concessions in a game and the third time the Padres have done it with him.
“He didn’t have good orders,” Roberts said. “He picked us up many times and we picked him up. He was one of the happiest boys after all.”
San Diego’s Victor Caratini went for the wicket and returned home from Sherzer. Former Dodger Manny Macado took a two-run shot in third place to put the Padres behind 5-3.
“It definitely hurts because of the way we’re back,” said Padres manager Jays Tingler. “I thought we did a great job of swinging the bat.”
The Dodgers made two errors in the fourth, while the Padres tied it 5-all. Third baseman Chris Taylor’s fielding error was out of the second inning. Cigar boots a ball at shortstop that allows Will Myers to run to tie.
Tommy Farm’s RBI was double and Trent Grisham added a two-run single in the seventh-5-5 gap, while reliever Brusder Gratter faced four batters, two walks, two hits and three runs left.
Dodgers lost to hot-hitting outfielder Gavin Lux in the sixth. As he chased Myers Triple, he crashed into the wall of Center-Field. Roberts and an instructor rushed to the warning track to check on Lux, who was holding his right shoulder. Lux came to bat after returning from Triple A two weeks ago.383.
Schreger had problems for the second start. Last Thursday he didn’t look sharp in Colorado, allowing five runs and six hits in any decision. This time, he didn’t get a second strikeout until the fifth, when he had the first 1-2-3 innings of the game.
Dodgers took an early 4-0 lead in the RBI double of Terrier Turner, Munshi’s RBI singles and Polak’s two-run homer. Seger added an RBI double to the second for a 5-1 lead.
