Dodgers Highlights: Mookie Betts Web Gem, Austin Barnes’ First Home Run & Jerry Hairston. Jr Does Push-Ups

The Los Angeles Dodgers shut out the Milwaukee Brewers, 1-0, to complete a series sweep and extend their season-best winning streak to 11 games, behind a stellar outing by Lance Lynn and Austin Barnes’ clutch home run.

Lynn and 2021 National League Cy Young Award winner Corbin Burnes went toe-to-toe as each fired seven shutout innings. Lynn allowed four hits and issued one walk, while Burnes bested him in that regard with holding the Dodgers to two hits and finishing with nine strikeouts.

The Brewers were on the verge of taking a lead in the sixth inning after back-to-back singles put runners on the corners with nobody out. Buy Lynn induced a comebacker that resulted in Tyrone Taylor being caught in a rundown, and he retired the next two batters faced.

Following the win, Lynn credited the Dodgers for playing strong defense behind him, which included Mookie Betts ranging to his left for an impressive out at second base.

With the game still deadlocked and the Brewers just having turned to their bullpen, Barnes pulled a slider down the left-field line for his first home run of the season that held as the difference for the Dodgers.

“Austin was fantastic tonight. Just an overall fantastic game by him,” manager Dave Roberts said after the game. “The way he worked with Lance, and he did a lot of work leading up to this start, spending time with him in the dugout. They were just in sync.

“Great fingers, great framing, and then with the bat. Corbin Burnes is one of the best in the game. To line a ball to left field and that big homer off the reliever, who is really death on righties. Austin played a complete game. It’s just nice when you have a veteran backstop who can spell Will and you can trust him.

“He had a heck of a ballgame. Really fun to see.”

Jerry Hairston Jr. loses bet on Austin Barnes home run

SportsNet LA analysts predict a player who will hit a home run before every game, and Nomar Garciaparra chose Barnes. Jerry Hairston Jr. wasn’t quite as convinced, which led to a push-ups bet.

Barnes solo shot resulted in Hairston upholding his end of the bargain as the SportsNet LA broadcast signed off from the center field plaza at Dodger Stadium.
