On a day where Kobe Bryant was inducted into the Hall of Fame, the Dodgers beat the Marlins in a shutout 7-0. Trevor Bauer 10 strikeouts contributed to the win over the Marlins. The Dodgers have won four straight and they are now 22-17.

Manager Dave Roberts paid homage to the icon Kobe Bryant. “He’s a legend and an icon. When you talk about legacy there’s a lot of things and a lot of people he impacted off the court.”

Mookie Betts showed his respect by wearing the Kobe Protro HOF cleats.
