The Los Angeles Dodgers had a night in Miami. Thanks to Mookie Betts, the Dodgers defeated the Marlins 10-to-6 in ten innings.

Despite playing sloppy baseball, the Dodgers managed to win, and they are fifty games over. 500. The Dodgers’ magic number is eighteen. Usually in baseball, magic numbers are not discussed in September, but the Dodgers have been fantastic this season which has enabled them to bury their divisional rivals.

Tyler Anderson ran out of gas in the sixth, but he was marvelous for the first five innings against the light-hitting Marlins. Except for Brusdar Graterol who closed out the victory, the usually reliable bullpen struggled, and three defensive errors did not help the relievers.

Betts had four hits, including two home runs. The potent Dodger offense did not explode until the tenth, but if they did not have an as good offense as they do, the Dodgers would have lost the game.
