Almost an hour rain delay stalled the Los Angeles Dodgers’ 8-to-2 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies.
Before the game, the Dodgers put Mookie Betts on the 10-day IL with a hip irritation and inflammation, and he took a flight to Los Angeles to have experts look at the troublesome hip. The Dodgers hope Betts’ stay on the IL will be temporary, but they do not know.
David Price pitched well for four innings and had a run-producing double. The Dodger bullpen again was brilliant.
Cody Bellinger, who Dodger fans have worried about his poor offensive production, blasted two two-run homers. He has worked diligently on improving his offense. After having off-season shoulder surgery, Bellinger has been doing rehabilitation exercises during the season to strengthen the surgically repaired shoulder.
