The Los Angeles Dodgers hit two grand slams in two innings, quelling doubts about their offense in Milwaukee.
The Dodgers hadn’t had a multi-grand slam game since 2000, but hit two on Sunday afternoon in Milwaukee, giving baseball fans just a taste of what they can do with their backs against the wall.
And perhaps it’s too early to suggest that’s the case, considering it’s only May. But the Dodgers struggles in their first few games against the Brewers led some to suggest maybe, just maybe, Los Angeles was headed for an extended slump.
Yeah, about that.
AJ Pollock left the yard with a granny.
Turns out Matt Beaty was a little jealous.
The Dodgers offense has finally woken up
Los Angeles was 3-10 in their last 13 games since a hot start, which included an impressive outing in San Diego. Now, they sit solidly in second place in the crowded NL West, behind the rival San Francisco Giants. It’s still very early, and the Dodgers are rightfully favorites to run the table and win not just the division, but another World Series, but Los Angeles would rather not deal with such distractions.
Perhaps from a social perspective, the Dodgers hadn’t beaten the Brewers since Walker Buehler infamously tweeted and deleted this scalding take.
Oh how the turntables have…
The Dodgers are dealing with a host of tough injuries, including one Cody Bellinger. Once those high-profile players get healthy, they should be fine, but in the meantime they’re trying to tread water to stay afloat in the NL West.
Sunday’s outing is a good start, and could be used as a catalyst moving forward.
