Dodgers Get Third-Straight Rookie Walk-Off Win 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Mon Jun 24, 2019 12:22 pm

The Los Angeles Dodgers got another walk-off victory from a rookie on Sunday as they bested the Colorado Rockies 6-3.

It was the third-straight game that a rookie produced a walk-off hit.

Will Smith, recalled from Triple-A on Sunday, hit a pinch-hit three-run home run in the bottom of the ninth on Sunday.

Alex Verdugo homered against the Rockies in the bottom of the 11th inning for a 5-4 victory on Saturday. Matt Beaty was the hero Friday when he hit a two-run homer in the bottom of the ninth to give the Dodgers a 4-2 victory over Colorado.

\"Three games in a row is pretty remarkable. Just when you think it couldn\'t get any better, can\'t get any better, it does,\" Dave Roberts said. \"Will just got here last night. To come out and play a big role in this game, speaks a lot to his preparation.\"
