The Los Angeles Dodgers took it to the Miami Marlins on Sunday afternoon to complete a three-game sweep, cruising to a 9-0 victory at Dodger Stadium.
As has been the case on several occasions this season, it did not take long for the Dodgers to get on the scoreboard. Justin Turner drew a walk with one out in the bottom of the first, then Max Muncy slugged a two-run home run to left-center field.
Muncy knew he got it right away and did his signature bat flip on his 26th long ball of the season. Not only does Muncy rank second of the Dodgers in home runs, but is also second in RBI with 68.
The Dodgers hit another two-run home run in the third inning to extend their lead, with this one coming off the bat of Joc Pederson. He has now homered in back-to-back games to give him 23 for the season.
A.J. Pollock broke the game open late with a three-run home run to the opposite field, his sixth of the year. Pollock has been on fire since returning from the injured list, and that continued on Sunday when he went 3-for-4 with four RBI.
Kiké Hernandez has also heated up at the plate in the month of July, and he went 2-for-4 in the series finale, driving in Pollock with a double down the left-field line in the fourth inning.
While the offense was great, perhaps the real star of the game was Walker Buehler, who turned in one of his best starts of the season.
Buehler was sharp from the first pitch he threw, recording his first six outs all via the strikeout. He wound up with 11 on the day in seven shutout innings, allowing just five hits while walking none to earn his ninth victory of the season.
He additionally remained undefeated at Dodger Stadium this year.
