Cardinals Shutout Dodgers

Hayden See, Reporter

Last night, the Cardinals shut-out the Dodgers 4-0.

Yadier Molina led the team in runs batted in, driving in three total runs with two doubles in the game. He hit one in the first and one in the third. Molina started out the season batting under .100, but he has now had two hits in back to back games. His batting average is back up above .200, for the first time since 2018.

“The future Hall of Famer is finally hitting like he should be,” junior Blake Haffer said.

Dakota Hudson was the starting pitcher, and he threw 4.2 shutout innings against a Dodgers team that has averaged over eight runs a game. In his first start of the season, he gave up five runs in Milwaukee, and was then put in the bullpen to be used in relief until he made the start yesterday. He is in his second year in the MLB, after making his debut last season.

“Hudson has been very good overall. He has a bright future,” junior Ethan Seymore said.

The bullpen shutout the dodgers in a little over four innings pitched last night. Miller, Brebbia, Gant, Leone and Mayers went in order to close out the game. Brebbia struck out three batters, Gant struck out two, while Miller and Leone each struck out one. Ozuna made headlines, jumping on the wall, before falling down as the ball hit the ground. The ball had a catch probability of 95%. Marcell and the outfielders had a nice laugh after the incident.

“Ozuna’s incident in the outfield was very entertaining,” junior Ethan Markovich said.

The Cardinals go for the series win tonight with Jack Flaherty on the hill.
