Recap: Dodgers Complete Interleague Sweep Of Mariners

The Los Angeles Dodgers found more two-out magic in a 7-1 win over the Seattle Mariners to complete a sweep of their Interleague series. The Dodgers have won back-to-back games for the first time since April 16-17 when they were at the end of an eight-game winning streak.

It’s also their first series win since April 16-18, when L.A. took two of three from the San Diego Padres.

Mariners starter Justin Dunn didn’t allow a baserunner until Mookie Betts doubled with two outs in the bottom of the third inning. Nothing came of it, but the Dodgers did capitalize when walks by Justin Turner and Max Muncy, along with a Will Smith single loaded the bases in the fourth, as Matt Beaty broke the scoreless tie with a two-run double.

After the Mariners cut their deficit in half in the fifth, the Dodgers responded to break the game open in the bottom half of the inning. Following Turner’s two-out single, Muncy hit his second home run in as many nights and fourth in the past eight games.

Beaty and Gavin Lux each tacked on an RBI single before the Mariners could get out of the inning, and AJ Pollock drove in a run with his pinch-hit single in the seventh.

The run support was more than enough for Julio Urias, who dominated the Mariners for a second time this season. Although Urias did not match the career-high 11 strikeouts from his outing at T-Mobile Park, he was impressive nonetheless.

The Mariners didn’t have their first baserunner until Ty France’s chopper got through the left side with one out in the fourth inning. That led to a run for Seattle, which was all Urias allowed over seven innings. He finished the night with six strikeouts against just one walk.

Urias entered the season not having completed seven innings in his career, but now has done so four times in eight outings this year.
