I wanted to find something fun and entertaining to wite about in this recap, but falling asleep in the second inning is never a good sign that you are going to get a quality recap.
Brandon McCarthy served up two gopherballs to his former catcher Yasmani Grandal, and another to Joc Pedersen before being lifted with two out in the fifth. Sam Freeman and Jesse Biddle also got in on the homer train, surrendering one each to Max Muncy and Cody Bellinger.
Walker Buehler held the Braves in check before leaving with rib soreness in the sixth, and the Dodgers pen finished out the game, with Johan Camargo providing the only Brave homer. So, when your team gets outhomered 5 to 1, it’s a good sign you lost. Anibal Sanchez toes the rubber tonight for the suddenly moribund Atlanta squad, against Alex Wood and his 1-4 record.
