Think Blue: Will Smith, Dodgers Sweep Rockies in Final Leg of Homestand
Pinch-hitting for Kenley Jansen in the bottom of the ninth inning in Sunday's finale, rookie catcher Will Smith slugged a three-run, pinch-hit walkoff homer to secure both a 6-3 victory and series sweep over division rival Colorado.
All three victories came on walkoff home runs by three different rookies, an MLB first. Smith's walkoff blast on Sunday was the second of his young career.
Smith was recalled earlier in the day from Triple-A Oklahoma City after veteran David Freese was placed on the injured list with a hamstring strain.
Manager Bud Black and reliever Scott Oberg elected to pitch to Smith after deciding to intentionally walk Russell Martin.
Dodger Blue: Dodgers Highlights: Will Smith Hits Walk-Off Home Run To Cap Off Sweep Of Rockies
This weekend was a magical one at Dodger Stadium as the Los Angeles Dodgers swept the second-place Colorado Rockies, with all three wins coming on walk-off home runs by rookie players.
When Matt Beaty and Alex Verdugo did it on Friday and Saturday night, respectively, it became the first time in Major League history that rookie teammates hit walk-off home runs in back-to-back games.
Somehow, the Dodgers were able to miraculously extend that record as rookie Will Smith, just called up from Triple-A Oklahoma City before the game, was the hero on Sunday afternoon.
With the game tied at three in the bottom of the ninth inning, the Rockies decided to intentionally walk Russell Martin with a base open and two outs to bring up Smith.
Denver Post: Rockies lose on walk-off to Dodgers for third consecutive game
LOS ANGELES -- The third time was no charm, just more heartbreak and frustration for the Rockies on Sunday afternoon at Dodger Stadium.
For the third consecutive game, the Dodgers won on a walk-off. This time, Will Smith hit a pinch-hit, three-run homer with two out in the bottom of the ninth inning off Colorado's Scott Oberg for a 6-3 win.
Like every other game in the series, the Rockies had to listen to Dodgers fans party like rock stars. By the way, all three of the Dodgers who hit walk-offs are rookies.
Mike Scioscia's Tragic Illness: Dodgers 6, Rockies 3: Will Smith makes it 3 rookies in a row to walk it off
Shutout through six innings and looking rather dead, the Dodgers rallied in the 7th behind Chris Taylor, but then gave it back quickly before Will Smith walked it off in the bottom of the 9th for a series sweep.
This team, man.
While Kenta Maeda gave up runs early, he settled down quickly after. Maeda ended up going seven innings on 86 pitches, allowing two runs on seven hits (six singles, homer) and two walks, striking out six.
So that should've been enough for the offense to get something going against Antonio Senzatela, but they couldn't do much.
Purple Row: Dodgers 6, Rockies 3: Dodgers walk off for third game in a row
The Colorado Rockies continue to be owned by the Los Angeles Dodgers. As if that weren't enough, they lost their third straight game in walk-off fashion on Sunday. Will Smith hit a three-run walk-off shot Sunday to send the Dodgers home with a 6-3 win and a sweep of the Rockies.
Dramatic L.A. home runs again
The Rockies held a 2-0 lead for much of this game. The problem with not scoring more runs than that is you're one swing away from losing that lead, especially against the Dodgers.
Mike Scioscia's Tragic Illness: Rockies @ Dodgers June 23, 2019: Senzatela vs. Maeda
For the second night in a row, the Dodgers (53-25) beat the Colorado Rockies (40-36) via a walkoff homer. With the team looking for a sweep, Kenta Maeda will take the mound against the Rockies right-hander, Antonio Senzatela.
Alex Verdugo and Matt Beaty, the two heroes of the series so far are both starting again today. The only real variation in the lineup today is slotting in Austin Barnes over Russell Martin, and Enrique Hernandez over Chris Taylor.
Dodger Blue: Preview: Dodgers Eye Second Sweep Of Rockies During 2019 Season
The Los Angeles Dodgers made franchise history with a 10th consecutive win against the Colorado Rockies and now enter play Sunday with an opportunity to complete a sweep at Dodger Stadium and maintain further control of the National League West.
A win would also give the Dodgers a second series sweep of the Rockies this season. They previously did so at Coors Field in early April, and are returning to Colorado Thursday for the start of a four-game series.
Kenta Maeda takes the mound for the first time since being struck on the right wrist by a comebacker.
Fansided: Colorado Rockies: Let's talk Los Angeles Dodgers and your perspective
Do you take the glass-half-full approach and say that the Colorado Rockies took the Los Angeles Dodgers, the team with the best record in Major League Baseball, to the bottom of the last inning on back-to-back nights at Dodger Stadium before dropping the game on walk-off homers? Plus, don't forget they faced two of the game's best starting pitchers (statistically) as well, right?
Do you take the glass-half-empty approach and say that the Rockies are in the middle of one of their best windows to win in franchise history and have now lost 10 straight to the Dodgers heading into Sunday's series finale?
Dodger Blue: Recap: Alex Verdugo Hits 2 Home Runs, Including Walk-Off, Giving Dodgers Franchise-Best 10th Straight Win Over Rockies
The Los Angeles Dodgers didn't do Hyun-Jin Ryu any favors playing behind him but Alex Verdugo provided more late-game heroics in a 5-4 walk-off win against the Colorado Rockies, securing another series victory at Dodger Stadium.
The win was also the Dodgers' 10th in a row against the Rockies, breaking a franchise record for most consecutive victories over their National League West counterpart. The streak dates back to last August.
Aside from the sloppy defense the Dodgers played, Ryu had an atypical start by his standards. Colorado took an early lead on Nolan Arenado's RBI single with two outs in the first inning.
Mike Scioscia's Tragic Illness: Dodgers 5, Rockies 4: Alex Verdugo wins it in extras as Dodgers walk it off for second straight night
After a dramatic walk-off win yesterday, the Dodgers had won four straight games. After a dramatic walk-off win today, the Dodgers have won five straight games.
While it was a back-and-forth affair and rather messy early, the game was a tense affair throughout and the Dodgers were lucky enough that the rookies showed out once again and so did the pen in a 5-4 win.
On the surface, Hyun-Jin Ryu wasn't at his best today, and maybe he wasn't as sharp as he usually is. However, a big part of that was simply having to get extra outs.
Purple Row: Los Angeles Dodgers 5, Colorado Rockies 4: Rockies walked off again
Alex Verdugo was the Rockies killer this time, hitting a walk-off home run against Jesus Tinoco in the bottom of the 11th inning, sending the Rockies to a 5-4 loss. It was the second straight night a Dodgers rookie hit a walk-off home run against the Rockies, who dropped their 10th straight game against Los Angeles. It was Verdugo's second homer of the night and dropped the Rockies to 3-2 on the current nine-game road trip and 40-36 on the season.
Ian Desmond had one of his best days in a Rockies uniform Saturday, especially considering the competition.
