LIVE BLOGGING WITH EDDIE RIVERA| Marlins End Dodger Win Streak with 11-3 Romp

LA riding 11-game win streak

Published on Friday, August 18, 2023 | 10:08 pm

Some losses hurt worse than others. This wasn’t  one of them. The Dodgers had their win streak handed to them by the Miami Marlins, 11-3, as starter Tony Gonsolin gave a home to the first batter he faced and then things careened downhill from there.

Early on, the Dodgers responded quickly with home runs  from Betts and Muncy, but the Marlins put up a rainbow of homers of their own, as lead off batter Jorge Solter sent two into the bleachers.

While the Dodgers prepared to almost get ready to begin to mount rallies, all fell short under the Miami home run barrage as Gonsolin distributed them among the Marlins like candy.

With the game long decided, shortstop Miguel Rojas was brought in to face the Marlins. He retired all the Marlin he faced in the ninth with a nifty combination of little league pitches.

The Dodgers will play a double header tomorrow in the face of the anticipated Sunday rain storm from Hurricane Hillary, currently churning north from Baja.

Here is how we blogged the game:
