Dodger Stadium had beautiful weather for its first game of the year, but in a four-hour and twenty-minute contest, the Los Angeles Dodgers lost to the Los Angeles Angels 10-to-4.

A day after Freddie Freeman with an illness could not play, he tripled and scored on a sacrifice fly by Justin Turner. In the third, Trea Turner doubled in Hanser Alberto, who had three hits, and Mookie Betts. Freeman, who walked, scored on Justin Turner’s grounder.

None of the Dodger hurlers performed well. Although Julio Urías kept the Angels scoreless for the first two innings, he lost his ability to miss the Angels’ bats and allowed five runs. Despite striking out the side in the fourth, Tony Gonsolin allowed three runs during his four innings. Garrett Cleavinger allowed two runs in his inning. If the Dodger pitching does not improve quickly, the team will have a slow start to the 2022 season.
