Dodgers Highlights: Miguel Rojas, Amed Rosario, Freddie Freeman, Chris Taylor & More Contribute Against Marlins

The Los Angeles Dodgers avoided being swept for a second consecutive series as Ryan Pepiot flirted with a perfect game and the offense exploded in a 10-0 win against the Miami Marlins.

Will Smith, Amed Rosario, Chris Taylor, Kiké Hernández and Miguel Rojas each had at least two hits. Freddie Freeman finished with one, but it tied him with Johnny Frederick for most doubles in Dodgers franchise history with 52 this season.

Smith’s RBI single in the third inning put the Dodgers up 1-0, and Taylor’s base hit with two outs in the fifth brought in another run. So too did Hernández’s extra-base hit that took an unlucky bounce for a ground-rule double, which limited him to just one RBI.

Freeman’s double in the sixth brought in Mookie Betts, Rosario’s single added onto the lead and Taylor’s RBI double capped off the four-run inning. Taylor later hit a three-run homer to finish with a game-high five RBI.

Despite going more than 20 minutes between pitches, Pepiot did not have his rhythm disrupted in the slightest. A quick bottom of the sixth inning was followed by retiring the first two batters of the seventh, one of which came on Rosario making a leaping catch to rob Luis Arraez of a leadoff single.

But Josh Bell then broke up Pepiot’s perfect game with a clean single up the middle. Pepiot nevertheless completed seven scoreless innings in the longest outing of his Major League career thus far.

Dodgers perfect game

Sandy Koufax remains responsible for the only perfect game in Dodgers franchise history. Clayton Kershaw twice has flirted with perfection, in addition to Pepiot.
