In the bottom of the ninth inning, the right fielder, Yasiel Puig, hit a crucial two run-double to beat the Chicago White Sox 5-4 on Wednesday night in Dodger Stadium. That big win proved that the Dodgers are still the best team in the Major League.
On his 31st birthday, the pitcher, Yu Darvish, had a really nice home debut with the Dodgers; he allowed three runs on eight hits and one walk across six innings.
”What better gift than on his birthday the Dodgers win” Puig said in an interview after the 10th walk-off victory of the season.
The game started really slowly with only two runs in the first three innings.
At the top of the fourth, the White Sox rookie, Nicky Delmonico, hit a solo home run to give his team a 2-1 lead, but not long after, Enrique Hernandez’s homer tied the game 2-all.
Chicago White Sox players, Jose Abreu and Nicky Delmonico, homered to make it 4-2.
The Dodgers are unbeatable at home this season and last night’s game proved it.
Down by two points with only an inning to go, Cody Bellinger hits a single into the center field which became a run on the Logan Forsythe’s double. 4-3 White Sox.
Austin Barnes lined a single in his fourth at-bat of the game to pull Forsythe to third base.
Yasiel Puig closed out the game when he hit a walk-off two-run double to score Forsythe and Barnes, lifting the Los Angeles Dodgers to a 5-4 win.
