Report: Dodgers dominate Blue Jays 12-2

Published April 27, 2024 at 2:40 PM

Responding to a chorus of boos from the Toronto crowd, Shohei Ohtani silenced his detractors by launching his seventh home run of the season as the Los Angeles Dodgers routed the Blue Jays 12-2 in commanding fashion. Ohtani's emphatic response highlighted a stellar offensive display from the Dodgers, who extended their winning streak to five games.

Max Muncy and Will Smith also contributed to the offensive onslaught, with Muncy's three-run blast in the third inning serving as a pivotal moment in the Dodgers' six-run outburst against Blue Jays right-hander Chris Bassit (2-4). Smith, who enjoyed his second consecutive four-hit game, added a solo homer off Trevor Richards in the fourth inning, further bolstering the Dodgers' lead.

On the mound, Dodgers right-hander Gavin Stone delivered a standout performance, allowing just one run and two hits over a career-high seven innings to secure his second win in three starts. Blue Jays infielder Isiah Kiner-Falefa made a cameo appearance on the mound in the ninth inning, conceding one of the Dodgers' 19 hits in the game.

Despite facing hostility from the crowd, Ohtani remained unfazed, homering on the third pitch he saw from Bassitt in the first inning. Mookie Betts and Freddie Freeman also made significant contributions to the Dodgers' offensive barrage, with Betts tallying two hits and an RBI, while Freeman reached base twice and drove in a run.

Meanwhile, catcher Danny Jansen provided a lone highlight for the struggling Blue Jays with his first home run of the season. However, Bassitt endured a rough outing, surrendering nine hits and a season-high seven runs in just 2 2/3 innings.

With their losing streak extended to four games, the Blue Jays will look to bounce back in their upcoming matchup against the Dodgers. As both teams prepare to face off once again, anticipation runs high for another thrilling showdown on the diamond.
