Post-Game 30 Thread: Grover Sad To Break The Streak

Kevin Gausman didn't have a win all year, but the Dodgers made sure he felt comfortable in his start today for Toronto, notching only five hits across seven innings pitched to have him coast to victory. Michael Grove's shaky second inning was all the Blue Jays needed to salvage the final game in the series and bring an end to the Dodgers' six-game win streak.

The Dodgers offense didn't show up today either, with Freddie Freeman's sixth-inning HR being the only run while the team went 0-for-9 with RISP. And it was the bottom of the order again that killed us: James Outman (0-for-4 with a K), Gavin Lux (1-for-4 with a double, but 2 Ks), and Austin Barnes (0-for-2 with a walk).

In the eighth inning, the Dodgers had second and third with none out and couldn't score. Ohtani chased two bad pitches and popped out; Freeman was intentionally walked, and then Teoscar Kd and Muncy hit a deep pop fly. We had no chance in the ninth with those "bats" coming up.

And so, we lost our first game of the his roadtrip (we are now 5-1). On to Arizona!
