Dodgers Edge The Hated Giants in Dramatic Fashion
5/27/21 LOS ANGELES, CA - The Los Angeles Dodgers captured a 4-3 win over the rival San Francisco Giants on Thursday night in front of a lively and energetic crowd at Dodger Stadium.
David Price started for the Dodgers had a historic record-setting night as he pitched his 2000th career strikeout.
"Whenever I see a milestone like that, its longevity in this game," Price said. "To be able to have that at the highest level of baseball, it's special to me."
Not only did Price have a significant outing in his 332nd career game, but Max Muncy also put the cherry on top with a thunderous hit.
In the bottom of the sixth inning and the game tied at three, Muncy connected on a solo home run deep to centerfield that ultimately gave the Dodgers another victory. It was Muncy's 11th home run of the season.
Another Dodger also made some history as rookie DJ Peters connected on his first solo home run of his career at Blue Heaven in the bottom of the fifth inning. The Southern California native who dreamed of playing for the team one day made his mark onto the Dodger stat sheet.
"To get it here at Dodger Stadium was surreal to do it against the team in orange and black is so much better," Peters said.
