Los Angeles Dodgers 3, Toronto Blue Jays 2

Corey Seager tied the game on Thursday with a two-run double, before Enrique Hernandez capped a second straight walk-off win with an RBI single as the Los Angeles Dodgers rallied at the bottom of the ninth innings to stun the Toronto Blue Jays and complete a three-game sweep.

The comeback came about after Jays rookie Jacob Waguespack and two relievers had combined on a one-hit shutout during eight innings. The Blue Jays used just four hits. This included a solo home run by Vladimir Guerrero Jr., to claim the 2-0 lead.

Closer Ken Giles was unavailable for the game because he was put on paternity leave earlier in the day. Meanwhile, Derek Law walked Max Muncy to open the ninth. Furthermore, after getting one out, he allowed a double for Cody Bellinger.

Also, Seager followed with his game-tying hit. Before, Hernandez ended it with a blooper to center field three pitches later.

The walk-off win was the LA’s 12th of the season and came just 24 hours after Muncy had ended a 2-1 win on Wednesday with a home run during the last hits of the 10th.

Meanwhile, Casey Sadler got the win. Sadler had pitched a scoreless top of the ninth.

Waguespack allowed a single to oppose pitcher Kenta Maeda and also a walk to A.J. Pollock. He got one out, before retiring for the final 14 batters in his seven-inning outing on the night.  

Peace,

Burke.
