On a picturesque Tuesday night at Dodger Stadium, after a thrilling ninth inning created by Craig Kimbrel, the Los Angeles Dodgers shut out the Los Angeles Angels 2-to-0.

“Tony the Tiger” Gonsolin continued to dominate the opposition as he hurled 6.1 innings. He had his fastball, splitter, and curveball working. While he walked two, Gonsolin had a great location that helped him to perplex the Angels. He struck out six. While wins for a starter are meaningless, Gonsolin leads the National League with eight wins, and his 1.42 ERA is the lowest in the Major Leagues. Before spring training, Gonsolin had a goal of making the All-Star team, he should start the Mid-Summer Classic.

The Dodger offense continued to toil since the hitters had difficulty with their situational hitting. They left Chris Taylor on third with no outs. In the fourth, Justin Turner had a bases-loaded walk. In the eighth, Mookie Betts blasted his first home run in thirteen days. The Dodgers hope Betts’ homer ignites their offense.

Both Caleb Ferguson and Daniel Hudson just dominated the Angels. Throwing 27 pitches and surviving a nine-minute break after the home umpire was hit by a broken bat, Kimbrel earned his twelve save.
