Cody Bellinger, Los Angeles Dodgers jolt Cincinnati Reds with six-run 8th

12 June 2017

Cincinnati Reds third baseman Eugenio Suarez (7) scores as Los Angeles Dodgers catcher Austin Barnes (15) looks on during their MLB baseball game at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles, Friday, June 9, 2017.

The Los Angeles Dodgers have been missing their most consistent bat over the last two weeks.

The last one carried the day. On Sunday, he hit his first career grand slam.

Dodgers left-hander Ryu Hyun Jin was in the same position as Maeda last month, pitched well in relief and quickly found himself back in the rotation. Seager's walk-off double with two outs in the ninth inning lifted the Dodgers to a 5-4 victory over the Reds on Saturday at Dodger Stadium.

"It's probably not going to happen", Seager said. "I thought we played a pretty good ballgame".

Seager failed in that regard. The Dodgers won 9-7. Brice allowed a single to Yasmani Grandal before Reds manager Bryan Price called upon Iglesias, his closer, to get a rare five-out save.

Yasiel Puig and pinch hitter Justin Turner singled with one out in the ninth off Reds reliever Drew Storen (1-2).

Wood struck him out on his 87th pitch of the game and Roberts decided that was enough.

He walked Hernandez on 13 pitches, after Hernandez had fouled off eight. Peraza has started 53 games in the middle infield for Cincinnati this season, hitting.248 with 14 stolen bases.

French President Emmanuel Macron likened Trump to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Russian President Vladimir Putin. He also pointed out that Romania , which stands of NATO's Eastern flank, heavily relies on the USA for defense.

Utley raised the stakes by drawing another full count, then walking on Iglesias' sixth pitch.

"Tried my best to put together good at-bats and keep hitting pitches that I normally hit, but my body's not letting me get there, so you've got to do what's best for the team", he said. OF Joc Pederson started his rehab at Oklahoma City and homered on his first pitch.

Seager did not wait long to finish the rally. He had never hit a grand slam in a major league game or collected the game-winning hit in his team's final at-bat ever - at least that he could remember. "I was able to settle in after that and we were able to battle back like our offense does". Tanaka has faced the power-hitting Orioles twice this season, and they roughed him up in Baltimore on May 31.

After giving up Turner's homer in the first inning, Garrett took a line drive off his pitching hand to start the second inning. Utley also walked three times. It was his third home run off a right-hander.

The unbelievable comeback completed the Dodgers' sweep, giving them four consecutive wins, and nine straight home wins against the Reds dating back to 2015.

The three-inning save has become almost extinct, but Maeda's was the Dodgers' second four-inning save of the season, following one thrown by Ryu Hyun Jin. Neither he nor Reds starter Tim Adleman (five innings, three runs) factored into the decision.

Adam Duvall led off that inning with a home run to left center to give the Reds a 1-0 lead.

Ryu then allowed his third home run of the game in the third, as Joey Votto touched him for a solo homer with one out in the third. He allowed three runs in the sixth inning, including a two-run shot by catcher Devin Mesoraco, who homered for a second straight day.
