The Los Angeles Dodgers dominated the Washington Nationals 10-4 in a thriller game 3 victory. The Dodgers were down for the first few innings, then took off like a rocket with 7 runs in the 6th inning and took complete  control of the game.. Dodgers Cody Bellinger says “we’ve been doing it all year. 9th inning, 6th inning, 7th inning, we are not going to stop grinding. That’s why we’ve been successful all year.” You would have thought it was Friday night at the Dodgers stadium. They never look back.

Dodgers third baseman Justin Turner  spoke at postgame press conference.

“It all started with Bellinger. He hasn’t had much success in the first two games and he’s in there grinding trying to get locked in. He wants to be that MVP guy for us like he’s been all year. That at bat kind of unlocked him. He got down 0-2 and took some tough pitches foul, a couple more tough pitches and found a way to get there. That kind of got the ball rolling for us. The whole inning, everyone was down 0-2 that came through and got hits. I thought we took some good at bats for the rest of the game”


As long as there more innings in the game, you can never count out the Dodgers. They are one of the most resilient teams in the MLB. Which is why they have been successful these past few years. Dodgers are confident, resilient and believe in themselves more than anybody. David Freese mentioned “We never doubt ourselves, you can’t doubt yourself against the Nationals.  They’re most certainly not going to doubt themselves.”

The Dodgers look forward to play game 4 and they hope to close it out today at Nationals park. The way they’ve been playing it seems like they are back to playing like the World Series playoff team they are known for. Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said “getting back to see what we do best was a sight to see.” The Dodgers are having fun and playing with energy. Which is great, especially being in the postseason. A perfect time to be the best versions of yourself as a time. Russell Martin said, “Anytime you are in the postseason is great. The energy, everything is magnified. It’s a great feeling. We got a good group. We’re having fun.”

Get ready for game 4. It should be an extraordinary game to watch. The Nationals backs are against the wall. Will they send the game back to Los Angeles for a game 5 or will the Dodgers close it out tonight? Stay tuned.
