Anderson cruises Dodgers to win Nationals 10-1


WASHINGTON (AP) — Tyler Anderson pitched eight scoreless innings, Trea Turner scored three RBIs in their first game against the former team, and the Los Angeles Dodgers defeated the Washington Nationals 10-1 on Monday night.

Anderson retired the first 16 batters in the 6th before César Hernández’s one-out double.

Turner, who played seven seasons in Washington before moving to Los Angeles in July, continued his hitting streak in 15 games with two hits in six innings. He also struck out RBI in his first at bat.

The Dodgers have won 8 of their 9 wins and hold the National League record with a record of 28-13. Washington fell 5-16 at Nationals Park, the worst home record in Major League Baseball.

Turner was a key player on Washington’s 2019 Championship team, and was introduced to applause before the lineup was announced alongside relief pitcher Daniel Hudson, who last advanced to the World Series for the Nationals that year. But Anderson (5-0) quickly made his night.

The southpaw only needed 50 pitches in five innings, allowing Maikel Franco to fly into the sixth inning before Hernandez ruined his offer for perfection with a left-handed hit.

Anderson allowed five hits and did not allow eight strikeouts.

The Dodgers took a two-point lead before Anderson went to the mound and scored three more goals against Joanne Ardon (1-8) in the fourth two-out rally. Chris Taylor tripled and Nationals right fielder Juan Soto misplayed a fly from Mookie Betts to double after Gavin Lux walked away.

Adon allowed six runs and seven hits in 4.3 innings. The rookie is leading the MLB with a six-game losing streak. The Nationals had a total of nine runs while Adon slid.
