Enhanced Box Score: Dodgers 2, Cubs 1 – April 15, 2023
I’m sure that was a very fun win for Dodgers fans. Painful for Cubs fans.
David Peralta walked the Dodgers off in the 9th with a two-out groundball that was just barely out of Nico Hoerner’s reach. A foot to the left and Hoerner makes the play and the Cubs win the game. Instead, Dodgers win.
The offense didn’t muster anything more than a Patrick Wisdom solo homer, so that is as much a part of the loss as anything that happened in the 9th. Still, it stings to be an inning away, and then an out away, and not get it done.
