As has been the case so often this road-trip, it was a pitching duel in Los Angeles this afternoon, with Walker Buehler and Clay Buchholz each doing work on the mound and it was scoreless until the fifth. The Dodgers drew first blood with a solo home-run there, but that was also Buchholz allowed over 5.1 innings of work. He gave up four hits and two walks with four strikeouts.
However, Arizona rallied to tie the game in the seventh on an Alex Avila sacrifice fly, Paul Goldschmidt scoring after review, being initially called out (above). The Arizona bullpen did its job, and leading off the top of the ninth inning, Daniel Descalso hit his 12th home-run of the season, JUST out of the reach of Cody Bellinger for a 2-1 lead. However, Brad Boxberger walked the first two batters he faced and after a bunt, Torey Lovullo brought in Archie Bradley to face Matt Kemp again. The result was much the same, a two-run hit off the wall, and Arizona is now in third place in the NL West.
@realStephenCase will be along with the full recap later, presuming he gets out of Dodger Stadium alive. :)
