Justin Turner Nachos

Dodgers Get A Cheesy Win Against Rockies

The Dodgers are on a 5-game winning streak once again thanks to their offense and the pitching that has come through.

On Wednesday, Justin Turner was the star of the show as he had 2 of the 4 RBIs that were scored for the Dodgers. Zack McKinstry remains hot at the plate as he hit a solo home run to center field which padded the Dodgers lead late in the game and it would be all the Dodgers needed. The Dodgers have seemed to be following a pattern, as they’ve been getting on these types of hot streaks, only to be slowed down by one loss and then starting back up again.

The pitching seemed to hold up as Dustin May was effective, however, wasn’t able to go deep as he went 4.1 innings while giving up the only 2 runs scored by the Rockies, and striking out 6. After that, Dodgers manager, Dave Roberts, utilized his bullpen a lot in this game as we saw him use Victor Gonzalez, Blake Treinen, Scott Alexander, Corey Knebel, and Kenley Jansen. The bullpen was solid as they held the lead for the Dodgers with Jansen closing the door and seeming to still be Roberts’s go-to man for the 9th inning. The big talk of the game, however, involved a fan and a plate of nachos.

Justin Turner Was Nacho Man

In the bottom of the third inning, Justin Turner hit a solo home run to center field in the seats that were recently added to Dodgers stadium to center field. The seats allow fans to catch home run balls and bring them right into the action. Well on Wednesday, a fan and his plate of nachos got some action as Turner’s home run landed right into the fan’s plate of nachos, splashing fountains worth of nacho cheese over the man’s sweatshirt!

Justin Turner was kind enough to replace the nachos and the Dodgers were able to replace his now cheese-covered sweatshirt with a brand new one representing the Dodgers accordingly. It was all laughs after it was said and done, as the fan was able to get a home run ball, free nachos, some Dodgers gear, and a story of a lifetime.

Looking Ahead

The Dodgers wrap up the three-game set against the Rockies on Thursday and look to keep the winning streak alive as they send Julio Urias to take the mound. Urias had gotten both wins in the two games he started, his last start was against the Washington Nationals as he pitched 5.2 innings while giving up 3 runs and picking up 3 strikeouts. The Rockies will look to avoid the sweep as they counter with a lefty of their own in Austin Gomber. Gomber pitched well in his last start despite not getting the win against the San Francisco Giants as he went 6.1 innings while giving up just 2 runs with 5 strikeouts. The game time is at 7:10 pm PST.
