RECENT MLB NEWS FROM THE ASSOCIATED PRESS:
With all the former MVPs on their roster, it almost seems unfair when the Los Angeles Dodgers get major contributions from lesser-heralded players.
Imagine how the rest of the National League must feel watching Tony Gonsolin and Tyler Anderson so far this season.
On back-to-back days, these two pitched six scoreless innings apiece as the Dodgers won the first two games of a four-game showdown with the Mets. New York bounced back over the weekend and won part of the series as both teams showed why they held the two best records in the NL.
The Dodgers added 2020 NL MVP Freddie Freeman to a team that already included 2019 MVP Cody Bellinger, 2014 MVP Clayton Kershaw and 2018 AL MVP Mookie Betts. And Trea Turner, acquired last year from Washington, had a 26-game hitting streak that wasn’t broken until Saturday.
But with Kershaw returning from injury, the Dodgers needed Gonsolin and Anderson sharp. Gonsolin is 6-0 with a 1.59 ERA and Anderson is 7-0 with a 2.59 ERA.
Anderson’s performance was particularly noteworthy. The 32-year-old southpaw is a former first-round draft pick but hasn’t had an ERA below 4.00 since his debut season in 2016.
The Dodgers also showed their depth on the batting side. Infielder Edwin Rios, who has hit 13 career home runs this season, has seven in 92 plate appearances this year.
Philadelphia is 3-0 since interim manager Rob Thomson took over after Joe Girardi was fired. The Phillies still have plenty of time to work their way through the race, and the managerial changes have worked well for some other teams this season.
Bob Melvin went from Oakland to San Diego to take over the Padres before the season, and they are just a few games behind the Dodgers in the NL West despite the absence of injured shortstop Fernando Tatis Jr. Buck Showalter is off to an even better start in his first year with the Mets.
In NL Central, St. Louis is just half a game out of first place after replacing Mike Shildt with Oliver Marmol last season.
TAKE (THE) ADVANTAGE
The defending champion Braves started slow this year but have now won five in a row after sweeping a bottom-ranked Colorado team. They’re still 8½ games behind the Mets in eastern Newfoundland and Labrador, but next up for Atlanta is a two-game series against another last-place team — Oakland.
Then the Braves have series with Pittsburgh and Washington, the two teams with the worst running differentials in the NL.
Gonsolin doesn’t have enough innings to qualify for the ERA lead right now, but three different Dodgers pitchers have won the ERA National League title since 2015. Who are they?
LINE OF THE WEEK
Washington’s Lane Thomas hit three homers in an 8-5 victory over Cincinnati on Friday night. The 26-year-old outfielder had only hit 15 homers in his career prior to that.
RETURN OF THE WEEK
Down three runs with a leading ninth out on Sunday, Seattle’s probability of winning had fallen to 1.3%, according to Baseball Savant. Then Ty France hit a solo homer, Julio Rodriguez and JP Crawford singled, and Eugenio Suarez brought them both home with a brace to tie the Mariners game in Texas.
The Mariners won 6-5 in 10 innings.
