The Los Angeles Dodgers are plenty good already, but as if they weren’t good enough, they continually pull out games from the jaws of defeat, such as they did on Thursday when they defeated the Toronto Blue Jays 3-2. The Blue Jays had ran out to a 2-0 lead thanks to a second inning ground out by Derek Fisher and a sixth inning homer from Vlad Guerrero, Jr. That looked like it would be plenty for them to win for a while, especially one a night where their pitchers had combined to give up just one hit to the hosts. But these are the Dodgers who just can’t or won’t be held down.
When the bottom of the ninth began, so, too, did the Dodgers comeback. With two men on base, Corey Seager drove a double to right field to plate Cody Bellinger and Max Muncy. Seager then would be score the winning run when Kike Hernandez singled to center field, winning the game in walk off fashion 3-2. The win is the 12th walk off they have had this season and the second in two nights of action as well. On top of that, it’s the seventh time they have came back when trailing in the final frame, underlining just how much they desire to win. It’s really no wonder how they are over 20 games up in the NL West with such performances as those.
