Los Angeles Dodgers Beat Houston Astros 5-4 With Grand Slam
The Houston Astros lost 5 to 4 to the Los Angeles Dodgers, Tuesday night at Minute Maid Park.
The Dodgers scored all five of their runs in the first three innings. In the third inning, right fielder Jerry Sands hit his first career grand slam off Astros starter J.A. Happ.
The five runs for Los Angeles were just enough as the Astros scored three in the bottom of the third and added a fourth run in the sixth inning.
Bill Hall’s defensive miscue at second base, in the third inning, allowed the Dodgers a bases loaded opportunity they converted into a grand slam.
Meanwhile, the Dodgers’ bullpen slammed the door on the ‘Stros by retiring Houston’s last 12 consecutive hitters. Over half of the Astros lineup went hitless, as Michael Bourn, Chris Johnson, Bill Hall, Humberto Quintero and the pitcher’s spot didn’t do anything productive at the plate.
