Storied Corey leads Dodgers to latest glory

By Jon Weisman

Corey Seager, who among his many other achievements is on pace to break Mike Piazza’s 23-year-old Dodger rookie record for on-base percentage, was one of four Dodgers with two hits apiece in the Dodgers to a 5-2 victory over Arizona.

Ross Stripling allowed only three baserunners (two runs) in five innings with five strikeouts, needing only 66 pitches to get a W next to his name, in what some have speculated might be his final start of the season thanks to innings limits. Stripling also had the first RBI of his baseball career.

Stripling’s 66 pitches entered the top 20 for fewest pitches thrown by a winning Dodger starting pitcher ever. Greg Maddux, who retired 18 batters on 47 pitches in a 2-1 win September 27, 2008 over the Giants, set the standard.

Nice to hear Vin mention you on air Jon! Don’t know if it has happened to you before, but it’s worth PVRing any and all such occurrences.

First time as far as I know – thanks 🙂

You made it just under the wire!

This was a typical Dodger win over a below .500 team. It was a really nice game to maintain the 4 game lead over the Giants.
