LIVE BLOGGING WITH EDDIE RIVERA| Dodgers Lose Another Heartbreaker to Philly, 12-10

Published on Friday, May 13, 2022 | 11:54 pm
 

DODGER STADIUM-The team with a losing record played like world-beaters and the home team was simply soundly beaten, in a game that saw the Phillies (16-17) easily take advantage of every opportunity, while Dodgers blew as many as they could manage.

Walker Buehler had a rare rough meeting, with the Phillies, as they did last night, scoring early and often, banging out a total of 15 hits.

Bryson Stott drove in two runs in the second inning as the game seesawed back and forth. But when opportunities presented themselves, it was the Phillies who prevailed.

Down 9-7 in the ninth, Justin Turner launched a rocket into the left field stands to tie the score.

Alas, in the tenth, after Harper was walked intentionally, Castellanos doubled, and in came Harper.

To add insult to injury, Castellano stole home when a throw to third from Barnes skipped past Turner. The Dodgers scored once in the bottom of the tenth, but it was all they had in their pockets tonight.

The Dodgers will face Philadelphia twice more this weekend. That’s on them.

Here’s how we blogged it:
