The Los Angeles Dodgers chased Mike Foltynewicz early and set a season high with five home runs to start their homestand with a 12-1 win over the Texas Rangers. The road loss was a 16th in a row for the Rangers.
Max Muncy opened the scoring with a two-run home run, which Justin Turner followed by also taking Foltynewicz deep. It marked a fourth time this season the Dodgers have hit back-to-back homers. Gavin Lux capped off the big inning with a three-run home run.
While the Dodgers jumped out to an early lead, it wasn’t all positive as Muncy was removed after the first inning due to right side tightness.
