Dodgers: Takeaways from a wild game three victory
The Dodgers have been searching for answers on offense since game one and the lineup finally delivered in the later innings of game three.
Sunday night the Dodgers faced their first big crossroad of the 2019 season. The Dodgers had to find a way to get a slumping offense going and win otherwise the Dodgers would be on the brink of elimination and need to beat Max Scherzer and Stephen Strasburg. The Nationals took a 2-0 lead in the first inning and kept that lead until a big rally in the sixth inning.
Even though the Dodgers led 8-2 after Justin Turner’s three run home run, the rest of the game was not a breeze for the Dodger bullpen. Joe Kelly did not record a single out and allowed one base hit and three walks. He gave up two runs and left with the bases loaded.
Julio Urias came in with the bases loaded and allowed just one run on a sac fly thanks to an assist from Howie Kendrick who was caught between second and third base attempting to tag up. Here are the takeaways from Sunday’s huge game three victory.
