Los Angeles Dodgers 2, Toronto Blue Jays 1
Max Muncy homered towards the end of the 10th to carry the Los Angeles Dodgers to a 2-1 win over the Toronto Blue Jays on Wednesday evening.
This was the Dodgers’ 11th walk-off win this season. Meanwhile, Muncy has homered in a career-high five straight games for the Dodgers.
Muncy dispatched his 33rd homer off Tim Mayza with one out. Meanwhile, he picked up the Dodgers after Kenley Jansen gave up a tying homer to Rowdy Tellez with one out during the ninth. Followers booed Jansen after he received two extra outs to conclude the inning.
Also, Will Smith went deep for the Dodgers, and Walker Buehler threw seven shutout innings for the league-leading Dodgers.
The Dodgers struggled to get out some offense. This came just one night time after pounding out 15 hits in a 16-3 victory.
Joe Kelly retired in the eighth in opposition to a trio of second-generation main leaguers: Bo Bichette, Cavan Biggio and pinch-hitter Vladimir Guerrero Jr.
Meanwhile, Guerrero was out of the Blue Jays starting lineup. However, he did enter as a pinch-hitter during the ninth. Charlie Montoyo claimed that he did not need to play the rookie infielder on back-to-back days so quickly after Guerrero sat out with left knee irritation.
Montoyo said: “He isn’t playing because he missed time with his knee. We have got to be careful playing him on back-to-back days. That’s the only reason he’s not playing today.”
