Dodgers Come From Behind Late To Defeat Arizona


Written by:

The Dodgers showed a bit of their 2017 selves on Sunday afternoon when they overcame a 7-5 deficit with three runs in the 8th inning to defeat the Diamondbacks 8-7. A.J. Pollock hit a double that scored two runs to tie the game, then Max Muncy gave the Dodgers the lead with a sacrifice fly.

The D-backs rally was a shocking change in momentum from the beginning of the game. The Dodgers got out to an early lead after a 3-run first inning and a Cody Bellinger homer.

The Dodgers got on the board in the first when Kiké Hernández hit a sacrifice fly that brought in the game’s first run. One batter later, Alex Verdugo got a pitch he could hit and he whacked it for a two-run double.

Bellinger added to the excitement level in the 3rd inning with his fourth home run of the year. He got a fastball in his wheelhouse and crushed it. Bellinger is tied with reigning NL MVP, Christian Yellich, for the most home runs this year.

Up Next:

The Dodgers will face another struggling team before the schedule gets much harder as the San Francisco Giants come to town for the rivalry series. Drew Pomeranz will start for the Giants against Julio Urías. Urías is trying to build on a fantastic Spring Training that he capped with 4 perfect innings last Tuesday. The game will start at 7:10 pm.
