MLB Diamondbacks vs LA Dodgers Game 2 9/1/12

Today’s game was all about the long ball, all 3 runs in this game came by way of a home run. The Dodgers would strike first when Hanley Ramirez hit a solo home run off of rookie Tyler Skaggswho said ” i made one mistake and it seems to happen every outing, i wanted the throw to go outside but it ran down the middle and he hit it out.”

Rookie Ryan Wheeler

Justin Upton would answer that home run with one of his own in the 3rd inning hitting it 451′. In the 6th inning Andre Ethier would hit a long ball 398′  and break out of his own slump being the only guy in the game with 2 hits. Tyler Skaggs would last 5 innings and give up 1 run on 5 hits but got the no decision as Matt Albers would get the loss. Josh Becket bounces back after a rough start with his first win in a Dodger uniform going 6 2/3 giving up 1 run on 6 hits. Not a bad day to be a pitcher in this game but both clubs need to wake up the bats. Rookie Ryan Wheeler with a hit in the 6th would take Josh Becket out of the game, after the game Becket said “i was hoping to go 7 innings but i made a dumb pitch to their 3rd baseman”.
