The Los Angeles Dodgers haven’t had a pitcher give up 10 runs in a game in six years since Hyun-jin Ryu (36, Toronto Blue Jays) in 2017. Right-hander Tony Gonsolin, 29, who won 16 games last year, has been struggling.

Gonsolín started a home game against the Miami Marlins on April 19 and was blown out for 10 runs on eight hits (five homers) and four walks with two strikeouts in 3 1/3 innings. The Dodgers lost 3-11, ending their recent 11-game winning streak.

온라인카지노 After starting the first inning by throwing a curveball to Jorge Soler for a leadoff homer over the right-center field fence, Gonsolin retired the side in order in the second, but gave up another solo shot to Soler in the third. A four-seam fastball was hit high in the zone for a two-run homer to left-center field.

With runners on first and second in the bottom of the third, he gave up another three-run homer to Jake Berger. This time on an outside slider. In the third inning, he gave up a two-run double to Jacob Starlings. A four-seam fastball up the middle led to another long ball. In the third inning alone, he gave up six runs, including three home runs.

He couldn’t get out of the fourth inning. With runners on first and second and one out, he gave up a solo home run to Jayson Chisome Jr. The fifth pitch, a four-seam fastball, was hit high in the zone for another long ball. Gonsolin, who had never given up more than three home runs in 78 career games prior to this outing, gave up a career-high 10 runs on five hits in one day.

It was the first time in 50 years that a Dodgers pitcher gave up five home runs in a game since Don Sutton in 1973. Sutton, a Hall of Fame pitcher, gave up five runs on 11 hits (five home runs) with two walks and three strikeouts in 6⅔ innings against the Pittsburgh Pirates on May 8, 1973.

It was the first time in six years that a Dodgers pitcher allowed 10 runs. Ryu took the loss against the Colorado Rockies at Coors Field on May 12, 2017, allowing 10 runs (five earned) on eight hits, six walks, one hit batter and four strikeouts in 4 1/3 innings. Five of the runs were unearned due to a combination of defensive errors, but the 10 runs allowed were a career-high and the six walks were also a career-high.

Gonsolin, who has summoned two bad records, is 8-5 with a 4.98 ERA in 20 games (103 innings) this season to date. Gonsolin had a 2.51 ERA in four major league seasons between his debut in 2019 and last year. He was 16-1 with a 2.14 ERA in 24 games (130⅓ innings) last year, earning his first All-Star nod.

This year, after starting the season on the disabled list with a sprained left ankle, Gonsolin has been in the rotation since late April, going 4-1 with a 1.93 ERA in his first nine starts before falling to 4-4 with a 7.51 ERA in 11 starts. His four-seam fastball has dropped to 92.4 mph (148.7 km/h), the lowest mark of his career, and he’s been getting hit hard by his changeup and curve-slider.

According to, Gonsolin has been dealing with elbow soreness for four to six weeks. He has been able to throw as much as he can without aggravating the pain, but the decline in his pitches has forced him to make a decision. Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said, “Very few pitchers are 100 percent, but Gonsolin is not 100 percent. His fastball didn’t have any life, and he threw too many strikes. Overall, he wasn’t sharp. It’s not the Gonsolin we’ve seen. We’ll see what we need to do,” he said, hinting at the possibility of sending him to the disabled list to rest. /
