The Dodgers, who ranked first in the National League West, recorded 74 wins and 46 losses in the season, winning 11 consecutive victories along with sweeping Milwaukee three times in a row. It is an overwhelming win rate of 15 wins and 1 loss in August. On the other hand, Milwaukee, which was ranked first in the Central District after losing three consecutive losses, became 65-57. 

Dodgers starter Lance Lin and Milwaukee starter Corbin Burns developed a battle of luxury pitchers. Even after creating a chance, the pitcher’s skillful pitching continued to empty the scoring range. The Dodgers swallowed the disappointment with a chance with no outs, 1st and 2nd base in the 1st inning, 2 outs and 2nd base in the 3rd inning, and Milwaukee’s no outs 1st base in the 2nd inning, 2 outs 2nd base in the 4th inning, 1st out, 3rd base in the 6th inning, no 1 in the 8th inning. The follow-up hit from the base chance failed. 

The winning point was the 8th inning, where the score was 0-0. Austin Barnes, who appeared with no runners in the first run, fired a dramatic left-leaning solo home run. After meeting Joel Pyamps and watching the first pitch strike, he hit the slider on the inside at 83.5 miles (134 km) in the second pitch, leading to a home run that was the best match of the season. It was the moment when the final blow was struck. 

Dodgers starter Lin backed up the victory with a good pitching of 7 innings, 4 hits, 1 walk, 3 strikeouts and no runs. Caleb Ferguson and Evan Phillips followed, and Ferguson reported his 7th win of the season, and Phillips reported his 18th save.  

On the other line, Mookie Betts and Barnes led the attack with multi-hits. Two players were responsible for the team’s four hits that day. 

On the other hand, Milwaukee starter Burns’ good pitching with 2 hits, 2 walks, and 9 strikeouts in 7 innings was overshadowed by defeat. The losing pitcher was Fiamps, who dedicated the game-winning home run. The multi-hit of ninth hitter Tyron Taylor also did not see the light. 

Starting on the 19th, the Dodgers will play three consecutive weekend games at home against the Miami Marlins, who are third in the East Division of the National League. Milwaukee moves to Texas to meet the Texas Rangers, who are ranked #1 in the American League West.
