Buehler’s Pitching, Pollock’s Blast Sweep Reds

Written by:

Walker Buehler threw 6.1 innings of one-run ball, allowing just 3 hits and 1 walk with 8 strikeouts. A.J. Pollock delivered all the offense the Dodgers needed, hitting a 3-run bomb in the sixth inning as the Dodgers beat the Reds 3-2 in the final game of a series sweep.

After a rough start to the season due to a slow Spring Training, Buehler found his 2018 form and shut down the Reds for 6.1 innings. Buehler, who found the right arm slot to pitch from again, had everything working for him. His fastball was in the high 90’s with movement and his breaking pitch had some nasty break.

The Dodgers will test their new-found hot streak as they take to the road again, traveling to Milwaukee, the site where they won the NL Pennant in 2018. The first game of the series will feature Julio Urías for the visiting Dodgers and Zach Davies for the Brewers. In his last start against the Dodgers, Davies went 7 innings, allowing just one run and eight hits. The series will begin on Thursday at 5:10 pm.
