Dodgers News: Tyler Glasnow Felt He Was ‘Late’ On Pitches Vs. Diamondbacks

For only the second time in the last month, the Los Angeles Dodgers dropped a series with their 6-0 loss to the Arizona Diamondbacks on Wednesday.

Tyler Glasnow struggled with inconsistency and saw his command waver in the start.

The right-hander initially got through four scoreless innings despite his pitch count being high. But things unraveled in the fifth when Corbin Carroll hit a two-run triple before scoring on a wild pitch.

“I just think I was late, not moving as efficiently as the first four. Was just late on a lot of stuff and it was spinning over the middle of the zone,” Glasnow said after the game.

Glasnow’s final line was five innings pitched, four hits, three runs, one walk and six strikeouts. “I felt pretty good, and then the last inning, I think I was leaving stuff up, (throwing) hittable pitches,” he said.

Glasnow is already looking ahead to his next start and hopes to find more consistency with his pitches. “It was fine in the beginning, and then in that fifth inning, it just got away from me,” Glasnow said.

“I think just looking back and trying to take what I did the first four into the next start. Just try to look at what was inefficient, why I was late. And then try to wash it and go into the next one.”

Dave Roberts: Tyler Glasnow lost command in fifth inning

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts agreed with Glasnow’s assessment that he was effective through the first four innings before losing his command in the fifth. “I thought the stuff was really good early, and through that fourth inning, he was getting the swing and miss,” Roberts said.

“I thought the command was good, the breaking ball was good, slider was good. And then that fifth inning, it seemed like he couldn’t find his mechanics, just the command, he sort of lost it there.”
