Dodgers score 4 in 9th, stun Blue Jays in 10

The Los Angeles Dodgers pulled off a stunning comeback against the Toronto Blue Jays on Tuesday night, winning 8-7 in a wild game at Dodger Stadium. James Outman played the hero, doubling in the winning run in the bottom of the 10th inning. The Dodgers were down four runs in the ninth but managed to tie the game and force extra innings.

Freddie Freeman and J.D. Martinez contributed home runs for the Dodgers, who found themselves trailing 7-3 heading into the bottom of the ninth. However, the Blue Jays’ lead quickly evaporated as the Dodgers scored four runs off pitcher Erik Swanson. Mookie Betts, Max Muncy, and Chris Taylor all played crucial roles in the comeback.

Outman had an outstanding performance, reaching base five times with three hits and two walks. His walk-off double off the top of the wall in right-center sealed the victory for the Dodgers. The umpires reviewed the play to determine if it was a home run, but ultimately ruled it a double.

Bo Bichette had a strong game for the Blue Jays, ending an 0-for-18 drought with four hits, including a home run. However, the Blue Jays couldn’t hold on to their four-run lead in the ninth inning. Closer Jordan Romano was unavailable after pitching in four of the previous five games.

Both starting pitchers had solid outings. Chris Bassitt gave up two runs on four hits over five innings for the Blue Jays, while Julio Urias allowed three runs on eight hits over six innings for the Dodgers. Brusdar Graterol pitched a scoreless 10th inning to earn the win for the Dodgers.

The game started with Brandon Belt’s sacrifice fly giving the Blue Jays a 1-0 lead in the first inning. However, Freeman quickly responded with a home run in the Dodgers’ half of the inning. Bichette extended the Blue Jays’ lead with a two-run home run in the third, but the Dodgers pulled within a run with a sacrifice fly from Muncy.

The Blue Jays added another run in the eighth inning on an RBI double from Alejandro Kirk, but Martinez countered with a home run in the same inning. Danny Jansen’s three-run double in the ninth gave the Blue Jays a 7-3 lead, setting the stage for the Dodgers’ dramatic comeback.

In the end, the Dodgers emerged victorious, thanks to Outman’s heroics and a resilient team effort. It was a thrilling game that showcased the resilience and determination of both teams.
