Dodgers monster rookie collapses, gives up 7 runs on 162.7 mph Miller for first loss…0-15 humiliation to SF

Bobby Miller, 24, who has emerged as a monster rookie pitcher for the Los Angeles Dodgers, collapsed for seven runs and suffered his first career loss. His fastball topped out at 101.1 mph (162.7 km/h), but the collapse was swift.

The Dodgers suffered a crushing 0-15 humiliation against the San Francisco Giants at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles, California, U.S., on Monday (Aug. 18).

Miller, who made a sensation with a 3-0 record and 0.78 ERA with 23 strikeouts in four games (23 innings) after making his big league debut on March 24, was tagged for seven runs on seven hits (one home run) with three walks and five strikeouts in 5⅔ innings. He suffered his first career loss, raising his season ERA to 2.83.

Miller pitched a scoreless fourth inning with two hits and one walk before giving up four runs in the fifth. He gave up a walk and a stolen base to Luis Mateo. He then gave up a single to right to Brandon Crawford to score the go-ahead run.

He walked Casey Schmidt to load the bases and gave up a three-run homer to Ramonte Wade Jr. Wade pulled a low curveball from Miller over the right field fence. It was Wade’s ninth homer of the season and Miller’s first career blast.

After loading the bases in the sixth with a walk to Mike Yastrzemski and a hit by pitch to Matos, Miller gave up another Crawford single to center field for the fifth run. Crawford finished 3-for-3 with a walk.

After striking out Schmidt, Miller turned the mound over to Alex Vecchia with runners on first and second. He threw 92 pitches, including a sinker (24), changeup (22), four-seam fastball (18), slider (16), and curve (12). His four-seam fastball topped out at 101.1 mph (162.7 km/h) and averaged 99.8 mph (160.6 km/h), but it quickly fell apart.

Beccia, who came on in relief, gave up a walk to Wade and then a grand slam to J.D. Davis to put the game out of reach. Miller’s deficit swelled to seven runs.스포츠토토

The Dodgers gave up three more runs in the seventh and ninth innings to fall to 15 runs. The bats went scoreless. The Dodgers, who had fallen to San Francisco 5-7 in extra innings the previous day (Sept. 17), were swept again today, clinching a three-game road series.

San Francisco starter Alex Wood improved to 2-1 on the season with five innings of three-hit ball, walking one and striking out four. Crawford went 4-for-4 with a double and two RBIs, while Wade was 4-for-4 with a double and four RBIs to lead the offense. San Francisco, which has won six straight, improved to 38-32 in the National League West and moved within half a game of the second-place Dodgers (39-32).
