LIVE BLOGGING WITH EDDIE RIVERA | Dodgers Stop Disinterested Tigers, 5-1

Listless Tigers do little to help their cause

Published on Friday, April 29, 2022 | 6:21 pm

DODGER STADIUM—The Los Angeles Dodgers jumped back on the victory track with a 5-1 victory over a lethargic Detroit Tiger team, currently languishing early in the season with just exactly twice as many losses as LA.

Justin Turner’s offense returned for the evening, as did Doger pitching, with starter Tyler Anderson having a strong start, as did relievers Phil Bickford and Reyes Moronta having strong performances.

Detroit managed only a weak min-rally in the top of the third on a single from Baez that scored Barnhart.

Barnhart himself seemed to typify the lethargic Detroit performance in the 5th inning he was caught leaning towards second on a line drive hit right at Freeman. Freeman caught the drive and strolled over to first to force Barnhart out. Barnhart barely hurried back, as Freeman handled the double play. It was that kind of a night for the Tigers.

The Tigers return to Dodger Stadium Saturday and Sunday.
