The Los Angeles Dodgers have lost two straight games. Noah “Thor” Syndergaard has fallen apart again.
The Dodgers fell to the Tampa Bay Rays, 3-9, in a doubleheader at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Florida, on Sunday (July 27).
Syndergaard suffered his fourth loss of the season, allowing six runs on eight hits (one home run) with three walks and one strikeout in six innings.
Syndergaard is winless in his last four starts. On April 21, he took a no-decision against the St. Louis Cardinals after allowing three runs in five innings.
Syndergaard took the mound in the bottom of the first inning with a leadoff single by Will Smith and gave up a double to the first batter, Yandy Diaz. He then gave up an infield single to Wander Franco to put runners on first and third with no outs.
He got Brandon Lowe to ground out to the second baseman, but gave up a run in the process, got Randy Arozarena to fly out to shortstop and then gave up an RBI single to Josh Lowe to make it a 1-2 game.
Syndergaard faced a bases-loaded jam in the bottom of the second and gave up a run on an infield grounder to Diaz and a sacrifice fly to Franco for the fourth run.토토사이트
The Dodgers chipped away at the deficit in the top of the third with a JD Martinez RBI single, but Syndergaard continued to give up runs. He gave up an RBI single to Christian Betancourt in the third and a solo home run to Diaz in the fourth.
After Syndergaard, Justin Bruhl pitched two innings of three-run ball. Chris Taylor’s RBI double in the top of the eighth didn’t change that.
Tampa Bay had won three straight.
