Dodgers News: Tyler Glasnow ‘Felt Efficient’ & ‘Sharp’ In Dominant Start Against Angels

The Los Angeles Dodgers avoided a sweep against the Los Angeles Angels thanks in part to another fantastic outing turned in by Tyler Glasnow.

The right-hander gave up just two runs, and only one earned, on two hits over seven innings while striking out 10 and walking no one. The lone earned run came on a solo home run, but other than that, Glasnow seemed almost unhittable.

“The last few have been feeling good,” Glasnow said. “I think the curveball helped me out a lot tonight, just being able to drop it in for strikes and then bounce it later. But every inning tonight felt a lot sharper.”

Every batter who went into a 0-2 count against him ended up striking out, a feat Glasnow was not aware of until being told after the game. “Nice,” he said surprised.

“Yeah, I felt efficient. I was glad I could just kind of get ahead and put guys away quick, just try to keep my pitch count low.”

Glasnow finished the game with just 74 pitches thrown before he was replaced on the mound for the eighth inning. The Dodgers have been cautious with their pitchers this season, and with the game leanning heavily in their favor, there was no point in running their ace back out there.

“It’s one of those things that you always want to keep pitching, but I trust whatever Dave’s got for me,” Glasnow said. “So all good.”

After throwing his final frame of the night, Glasnow became the first pitcher in MLB to reach the 100 innings pitched mark. “Yeah, it’s awesome,” he said.

“I think that’s kind of the starting pitchers job, just go out, try to keep the pitch count low, try to be as efficient as you can and go as long as you can.”

Glasnow has certainly done that for the Dodgers, throwing at least six innings in 11 of his 16 starts, and no fewer than five innings in any of them.

OVerall, he owns a 2.88 ERA with a 0.87 WHIP and 135 strikeouts this season.

Tyler Glasnow happy with run support

The Dodgers scored seven runs for Glasnow against the Angels, but overall this season, they have also had some struggles putting runs up while Glasnow pitched. At one point, they went five consecutive games without scoring Glasnow a run.

“I feel like early on, I’ve had a lot of run support, and I just think that’s how baseball is,” Glasnow said. “It’s so up and down and fluctuates. But for the most part, I feel like I’ve had some good run support in the grand scheme of the season.”
