You can only describe the Dodgers offense on Saturday night vs. the Arizona Diamondbacks in one word..."hot."
For the second time in three games, the Dodgers scored double digit runs. For the first seven innings, they relied on their ability to hit with runners in scoring position and then went for the long ball in the eighth inning.
Kenta Maeda also threw over 100 pitches, and ended up going 62⁄3innings, allowing three runs and striking out three. But Russell Martin stole the show at the end of the game.
Dodgers looked to catcher Russell Martin to close things out which shocked many Dodgers fans when he came in after an 18-5 lead. Martin then threw 1-2-3 ninth inning, and ended up getting to live out a dream he has always had. He told Petros and Money back in February that he has always wanted to try to pitch in the big leagues.
