Final score: 8-1, Angels
The freeway series continued last night, as the Los Angeles Dodgers traveled to Anaheim for the third game in the series. Mike Bolsinger came off the DL and started the game for LA. Bolsinger got through four innings before things started to unravel for him and the Dodgers. He ended his night having pitched 4 1/3 innings while surrendering three earned runs.
The scoring wouldn’t stop there, however. Louis Coleman came in for relief and did not help the situation as he allowed three runs himself (two earned) and Adam Liberatore would also tack on two more runs of his own.
The Dodgers’ offense was definitely lacking in this outing. Angels pitcher Nick Tropeano had them all figured out as he breezed through the first three innings with less than 30 pitches thrown. He would only surrender one run to the Dodgers.
This was frankly an embarrassing performance by the Dodgers. The Angels don’t have that strong of a starting pitching squad but the Dodgers batters somehow managed to get walked on, and the bullpen didn’t help much at all either. Hopefully, the Dodgers can make a change for the final game of the series that finishes off tomorrow in Anaheim. Ross Stripling will be up against Angels’ Jhoulys Chacin.
