Dodgers trounce Blue Jays for fifth straight win

ohtani

Max Muncy hit a three-run home run, right-hander Gavin Stone pitched seven strong innings and the visiting Los Angeles Dodgers defeated the Toronto Blue Jays 12-2 Friday night.

Shohei Ohtani and Will Smith added solo homers for the Dodgers, who won the opener of the three-game series to extend their winning streak to five games. Smith had four hits and Muncy had three to lead the Dodgers’ 19-hit attack.

Stone (2-1) allowed one run, two hits and two walks while striking out two.

Danny Jansen hit a solo home run for the Blue Jays, who have lost four straight.

Toronto right-hander Chris Bassitt (2-4) allowed nine hits, seven runs and three walks in 2 2/3 innings.

Ohtani, who had been rumored to be joining Toronto as a free agent before signing with Los Angeles, was booed when he came to bat in the first inning. He promptly hit a blast to right for his seventh home run of the season.

The Dodgers scored six in the third.

Mookie Betts singled and stole second, Ohtani walked and Freddie Freeman and Smith hit RBI singles. Muncy then hit his fifth homer of the season on a drive to right.

To cap off the Dodgers’ outburst, former Blue Jay Teoscar Hernandez hit an infield single, stole second and scored on Gavin Lux’s single.

Smith hit his second homer of the season on a one-out shot to left in the fourth against Trevor Richards to make it 8-0.

Jansen stroked his first homer of the season to left with two outs in the home fourth.

The Dodgers scored a run against Brendon Little in the fifth on a single by Andy Pages and a double by Betts.

The Dodgers added two more in the sixth. Smith doubled and scored when second baseman Cavan Biggio was charged with a throwing error on Muncy’s infield single. James Outman singled before Nate Pearson replaced Little, and Pages hit a sacrifice fly to make it 11-1.

Toronto scored one in the eighth against Nick Ramirez. Biggio walked, took third on George Springer’s double and scored on Vladimir Guerrero Jr.’s groundout.

Toronto infielder Isiah Kiner-Falefa pitched the ninth and allowed one run on Smith’s sacrifice fly.
