Dodgers Bounce Back – Take Game Two of Series

April 11, 2009 by  

azhb_default_articleThe Los Angeles Dodgers came back with a vengeance after being defeated by the D-backs the day prior. The Arizona bats were relatively quiet as they prove ineffective to Dodger pitching Saturday night. The D-backs would only manage six hits in the game, leaving a total of 6 runners on base.

The game would begin with excellent pitching by Petit who would end up striking out six batters but would later unravel to give up three earned runs. Billy Buckner would come in at middle relief to give up five more runs before Rauch, Gutierrez and Slaten. Both Rauch and Slaten would pitch well, allowing no runs.

The Dodger pitching was phenomenal, striking out eight D-backs and limiting their opponent to two runs. Although Arizona would throw more strikeouts than the Dodgers, Los Angeles seemed to have the Diamondbacks batters baffled. Additionally, the five extra base hits by the Dodgers and an onslaught of RBIs would do the D-backs in.

In other performances of note for the D-backs, Reynolds would go 2-for-4 with a run scored, a base on balls and a strikeout. Augie Ojeda would come in to bat a sac fly but is still batting perfectly. Young, Drew, Clark and Snyder would have the other D-backs hits in the game but nothing eventful enough to make a major impact. Reynolds would contribute with a triple in the loss. Chris Young would hit a double for his third double, already, this season.
