The Los Angeles Dodgers continued swinging hot bats on Sunday afternoon, defeating the L.A. Angels, 8-3, to complete the Freeway Series sweep at Angel Stadium.

With Will Smith being placed on the 10-day injured list, the Dodgers elected to call up one of their top prospects in Keibert Ruiz and he made his MLB debut, starting behind the plate of Sunday.

He immediately made his presence felt, hitting a solo home run to right field in the third inning in his first career at-bat, tying the game at one.

Max Muncy broke out of his slump on Saturday night by driving in three runs, including the game-winner in extra innings. He carried that success over into the three-game finale, hitting a two-run home run in the third inning to give the Dodgers a 3-1 lead. Muncy now has five home runs and 10 RBI on the season.

It was the fourth inning that the Dodgers broke the game open, with Mookie Betts coming up with an RBI single with two outs in the inning to make it 4-1.

The big swing of the day then came off the bat of Corey Seager as he turned on one for a three-run home run, sneaking it by the right-field foul pole. Seager also has five homers on the season to go along with 13 RBI.

Matt Beaty then capped off the offensive outburst in the sixth inning, hitting a solo shot for his first of the season. Beaty had his best offensive day of the season, finishing 3-for-4 at the dish.

After hitting four more home runs on Sunday, the Dodgers were able to add to their Major League-lead with 43 on the young season. Additionally, with the three wins, the Dodgers leave Anaheim with their first sweep at Angel Stadium in franchise history.

May’s mixed results

As has been the case all season so far, Dustin May generally was solid on the mound for the Dodgers to help complete the sweep.

He only lasted 4.1 innings due to a high pitch count but was able to limit the damage to two runs despite allowing seven hits while striking out two and walking none. His season ERA sits at a very respectable 3.00 while he has struck out 17 compared to just five walks on the year.
