Dodgers 6, Brewers 2: Bobby Miller hits 18 straight, team snaps 6th to 9 straight – Dodgers Digest

After a rest, Bobby Miller Hopefully he gave Dodger fans a glimpse of his future as he sat out the final 18 batters he faced in what was probably his most impressive start to date. While giving up a tied game, the lineup rallied the Brewers for a five-run frame in the 6th, and that was enough to secure a 6-2 victory.

The Dodgers have now won nine straight, 13 of their last 14 games, and will go for five in a row tomorrow.


After a scoreless outing, Bobby Miller’s day didn’t get off to the best start tonight. The game started with a first-pitch single by Miller, then he missed a 1-2 count for a walk and a hit by the ball on the warning track left runners at the corners. Apart from this, Sal FrelickThe groundout that avoided a double play was the only damage done in the inning, which certainly could have ended worse than 1-0 for the Brewers.

Fortunately, things got better from there, as despite the hard contact it was a 12-pitch frame that went 1-2-3 in the 2nd. Miller followed that with a 3rd that took 14 pitches to get through in clean fashion, including Miller’s first strikeout, and took just 13 pitches to strike out two batters in a perfect 4th.

Miller followed that with two more clean frames, the 5th going just 10 pitches and the 6th going just nine, which was marked by a strikeout.

In fact, after the first two batters of the game, Miller retired 18 in a row. Sovereign.

That was about him, which I was fine with for a number of reasons: 6 IP, 1 H, 1 R, 1 BB, 4 K, 74 Pitches.

Unfortunately, on the other hand, the Brewers starter Adrian Hauser took a cruise. He needed just eight pitches to get through the 1st, struck out two in the 2nd and took just six pitches to work in the 3rd.

The perfecto dissolved in the 4th, as a Mookie Betts The grounder took a diving play by Bryce Turang to ground out for an infield single. Turang then made a mistake in a Freddie Freeman groundout to suddenly put on a pair, but a foul pop and a pair of strikeouts ended the threat (including a near miss on a three-run homer).

The 5th started promisingly and behind a David Peralta single through Houser’s legs and a Jason Heyward blaster into the right-center field gap for a double. After a strike put the rally in doubt, Miguel Rojas continued his RBI ways by grounding a ball hard back up the middle that called for a nice play from Willie Adams to get out, but a run came to tie the game at 1-1.

Fortunately, the 6th proved pivotal for the Dodgers and the game. With one out, Will Smith hit a grounder to Andruw Monasterywhich he flew up to pull Carlos Santana out of the bag for a mistake. This opened the floodgates as well Max Muncy followed by a single, JD Martinez then he doubled to drive in a run, the lead, and knock Houser out of the game. With a lefty reliever coming in, Dave Roberts developed his struggles, such as Enrique Hernandez he hit for David Peralta and singled up the middle against a tying infield for a pair to make it 4-1.

Amed Rosario then he hit for Jason Heyward and fouled out, which was amazing, but it didn’t matter as James Oatman he singles to put a pair back on base. Butter-and-egg freshman Miguel Rojas went on to deliver an RBI single to shut the lefty out of the game, and Mookie Betts followed against a freshman reliever with an RBI single of his own to make it 6-1 for an inning. five in a row.

That was it for the Dodgers offense as they only managed one single between the 7th and 8th innings.

It didn’t really matter.

Miller’s relief was Ryan Yarbrough in the piggyback/bulk boi role to start the 7th, and while he was basically flawless before tonight, he started by giving his old friend Carlos Santana a huge dong to make it 6-2.

He rebounded with a pair of infield pops and a strikeout to end the 7th, then took a 1-2-3 frame in the 8th as well.

Unfortunately, to the credit of True Blue LA’s Eric Stephen, Yarbrough continued into the 9th looking for a three-inning save. Well, he did just that and made it look easy in just seven pitches to complete an impressive game.


Mookie Betts shared a great story on Twitter and like I said there, I’d go with Mookie Mancuso.

Eric Kratz talked about the investment the Dodgers are making in player development, as well as some clubbie testimonials.
