BASEBALL

With their third game in a row where a rookie has hit a walk-off home run, the Los Angeles Dodgers made history. There has never been a team with rookie teammates hitting walk-off home runs in consecutive games before the Dodgers recent sweep of the Colorado Rockies.

In more Dodgers news,  first baseman Cody Bellinger had an eventful game. First he hit a foul ball which hit a woman in the head, then he had to deal with an enthusiastic female fan who ran onto the field to try and give him a hug. He told the fan, “You know you’re going to jail.” The fan replied, “It was worth it.”

Dodgers Take 13 Innings To Tie Series, Red Sox Up 2-1, Warriors Unveil Banner And Rings

BASEBALL

It took 5 hours and 15 minutes and a much more enthusiastic crowd for the LA Dodgers to even the series with the Milwaukee Brewers at two games apiece. In the 13th inning, the Dodgers’ Cody Bellinger hit an RBI single allowing Manny Machado to score and end the game. Dodgers’ Enrique Hernandez took some heat after Monday’s loss to the Brewers for saying the crowd was unenthusiastic. Before last night’s game, he joked on Twitter, “The truth is, I suffer from ED,” then added, “So tonight, let’s all bring it. We can conquer Energy Deficiency together.” The Dodgers will head back to Milwaukee for Game 5 Wednesday night.

In the ALCS, the Red Sox hold a 2-1 advantage over the Houston Astros with Game 4 Wednesday night.
