MLB: Disaster! Dodgers have an awful record in a special situation

MLB Disaster Dodgers have an awful record in a special

In baseball, there are certain things for which it is difficult to find answers. Perhaps one of the most puzzling things about this season is the fact that the Los Angeles Dodgers, a team loaded with talent, they can’t seem to find a way to win in extra innings.

The Dodgers entered Friday’s game with a 1-11 record in extras this season, by far the worst mark in the majors. It did not improve as they lost their 11th consecutive extra inning game, 4-3, in 10 innings against the Los Angeles Angels from Anaheim in the ‘Freeway Series’ at Dodger Stadium:

Starter David Price was efficient in his start, allowing the Dodgers to take an early 2-0 lead. The veteran left-hander regained his speed on his four-seam fastball and used his change to record seven swing losses on the field.

The problem for Price was the home run. Price allowed solo home runs to Cuban José Iglesias and Jack Mayfield, finally ending his night after 5 1/3 innings, his second-longest outing of the season.

With left-hander Clayton Kershaw out until September, right-hander Tony Gonsolin still battling shoulder problems, and left-handers Cole Hamels and Danny Duffy still unavailable, the Dodgers will desperately need Price to record effective innings over the next two weeks. Friday was an encouraging sign for Price and manager Dave Roberts.

I am fond of the King of Sports, especially the Boston Red Sox in MLB and in general all of Mexican baseball. This profession has given me the opportunity to cover major events such as the Caribbean Series, LMB All Star, LMP (uninterrupted since 2009), signings of important players. I had the chance to attend the 2013 World Classic in Arizona, USA, albeit as a fan. Apart from this beautiful sport, I love basketball, where I have also narrated games and even an NBA friendly 10 years ago, but I carry baseball in my veins. Bachelor of Communication Sciences from the Autonomous University of Sinaloa (UAS) , from which I graduated in 2011. I was born in Mazatlán, Sinaloa and started in the world of sports journalism in 2004 in the newspaper El Sol de Mazatlán, where I was a baseball columnist and reporter at the same time. In January 2009 I came to El Debate as a journalist reporter and it was almost six years (in the first stage), until in November 2014 I emigrated to the radio providing my services in Línea Directa-Grupo RSN. My cycle there ended in July 2019 and within days, El Debate gave me another opportunity to work and opened the doors for me again. That is how I came to Al Bat, where I have been since 2019 as a web journalist.
