The Dodgers’ starting lineup is Zander Bogaerts (shortstop), Fernando Tatis Jr. (right field), Juan Soto (left field), Machado (third base), Jake Cronenweth (first base), Gary Sanchez (catcher), Matt Carpenter (designated hitter), Luged Odor (second base), Trent Grisham (centre field), and starting pitcher Michael Wacka.

The Cubs countered with Nico Horner (second base)-Dansby Swanson (shortstop)-Ean Happ (left field)-Seiya Suzuki (right field)-Mike Tuckman (centre field)-Christopher Morrell (designated hitter)-Trey Mancini (first base)-Patrick Wisdom (third base)-Yan Gomes (catcher) and starting pitcher James Tyone.

Ha-Sung Kim came in as a pinch-hitter late in the game. In the bottom of the eighth inning, O’Dowd hit a double and complained of pain while running the bases. Kim stepped in to pinch-hit for the injured O’Dowd.

He made a fantastic play at first base. In the top of the ninth inning, he darted to catch Morel’s hit and threw to first base for the final out.

San Diego took the lead in the top of the third. With runners on first and third, Happ’s grounder scored Horner from third to make it 1-0. The next run came in the top of the fifth. Swanson hit a solo shot over the left field fence to make it 0-2.

The comeback came in the bottom of the sixth. O’Dowd led off with a double and moved to third on a Grisham grounder. Bogaerts followed with an infield single to make it 1-2.

In the bottom of the eighth, San Diego loaded the bases after leadoff hitter O’Dowd doubled and was replaced by pinch-hitter Ha-Sung Kim with a leg injury. With runners on first and second after Grisham drew a walk, Bogart hit into a 3B-2B-1B double play, and the next batter, Tatis Jr. was thrown out at the plate to end the threat.

Unable to create much of an opportunity in its final at-bat, San Diego fell to its knees in a close game, 1-2. The team’s bats were held to just four hits. Starting pitcher Waka took the loss, allowing two runs on three hits (one home run) in 4⅔ innings with five walks and eight strikeouts.
