Pinch hitter Austin Barnes hit a walk-off double to boost the Dodgers to a 4-3, 10-inning victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates on Tuesday at Dodger Stadium.
Barnes lined the first pitch he saw from Daniel Hudson (0-2) into the gap in right-centre field.
Kenley Jansen (2-0) earned the win with a scoreless 10th inning. Williams, 25, had started his entire career before transitioning to the bullpen at the beginning of this season.
Dodgers rookie Cody Bellinger's RBI single with one out in the ninth brought home Corey Seager to make it 3-3. Against the tough Pedro Baez, John Jaso hit a pinch-hit HR, his second longball of the season, just clearing the fence in right. "But it was cool".
Julio Urias' no-hit bid, one nearly certain to have included an early removal should it have continued, ended in the seventh inning of the Los Angeles Dodgers' home tilt against the Pittsburgh Pirates on Tuesday night. Josh Harrison leads the Pirates with 32 hits and 12 RBI while Andrew McCutchen and Josh Bell have combined for 51 hits and 24 RBI.More news: Trump again derides Elizabeth Warren as 'Pocahontas' during NRA speech
"We're going to put Trevor Williams in the spot and see what he can make of it", Hurdle said. "I had two good at-bats off him". It wasn't the whiff-fest of the previous night, but there was nearly nothing hit hard. "Drove it to the warning track second at-bat, so I was just trying to stay within myself and not do too much". X-rays were negative, but Toles is scheduled to have an MRI exam Wednesday. Urias also committed an error.
Dodgers catcher Yasmani Grandal said Urias possessed a good fastball but little else. "The rhythm in his swing he can handle more velocity and mechanically he's much more sound and athletic". "I think everybody thinks I missed third, but I knew I hit it". The Dodgers have scored 16 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in nine of their last 11 games. For Grandal, who went 3-for-5, it was his fourth home run this season. It was the first time the Dodgers have hit grand slams in back-to-back games since September 7, 2004 (Robin Ventura and Olmedo Saenz). "It just so happens that today they just happened to fall".
Two batters later, Yasiel Puig sent a slider halfway up the seats in left field and the Dodgers finished with six runs in the first inning. Ryu has been on the disabled list since April 30, when he sustained a hip contusion sliding into second base against the Philadelphia Phillies. Toles went 1-for-3 in the game, settling his triple slash at.271/.314/.458 in five-plus weeks. Gutierrez returned from the 10-day disabled list (left hamstring strain) on May 2. The Dodgers also signed free agent LHP Logan Darnell to a minor league contract.
PIRATES KEY TRENDS: The Pirates have dropped four of Kuhl's last five starts, are 1-5 in his last six outings when coming off four days of rest, and are 0-4 in his last four road starts.
