Dodgers: Dave Roberts explains why he used Justin Turner as a pitcher

Los Angeles Dodgers surprised his fans and the entire middle of the MLB in the day of this Sunday in the game against the Colorado Rockies as he used Justin Turner as a pitcher relevista. After this little compun event, Dave Roberts explained why for which he decided that Turner should get on the mound.

Dave Roberts revealed the reasons that led him to choose none other than Justin Turner as the pitcher who would take care of the ninth inning in the game between the Los Angeles Dodgers and the Colorado Rockies.

The helmsman said it was a decision made by Justin Turner and later approved by him, since going 5-0 in the last inning made them believe that they “no longer had a chance” and that they chose that to “preserve the bullpen.”

The almost always third baseman came in to relieve Kenley Jansen in the ninth inning. His work was of the full three-thirds, which he managed to serve without accepting a run but connected a couple of hits.

As Dave Roberts predicted, the Los Angeles Dodgers failed to overcome and was defeated by the Colorado Rockies in an MLB game in which the California did not shine.

I joined ‘Al Bat’ in September 2020, starting a new work stage in which I always seek to give my best version, in addition to leaving a significant mark on the passage of women in an industry that is managed mainly by men. Degree in Communication Sciences and Techniques from the Inter-American University for Development (UNID), I am a specialist in sports journalism, writing and editing texts, I have three years of experience covering sports, especially baseball from the Mexican Baseball League (LMB ), Liga Mexicana del Pacífico (LMP) and MLB. I was an intern at the LMB Leones de Yucatán Baseball Club, with whom I attended the 2019 Rey Series. I have done work for social networks such as the coverage of the 2019-2020 edition of the LMP Final for ‘Con Las Bases Llenas’. I am constantly updated on social media, SEO, Google positioning, writing, digital journalism, as well as the place of women in the sports industry. Originally from Mérida, Yucatán, my first approach to baseball was in a game of Lions of Yucatán, in the ‘Kukulcán Álamo’ Park, in 2015; and that changed my life completely. The ‘Melenudos’ are the team of my loves and the greatest passion I have in this sport. Although I dedicate myself to baseball most of the time, my sport, in the beginning, was (and still is) soccer. Real Madrid and Bayern Munich won my heart and fans from ‘minute one’ and I am fortunate to have already seen them play live. Clearly, I am a fan of Cristiano Ronaldo and Manuel Neuer.
