Dodgers News: Fans Worried as LA’s Offense Struggles in Run Scoring Situations

It’s not very difficult to find the reason the Dodgers lost Game 2 of the NLDS against the Padres. It’s the same reason they almost blew Game 1.

The offense, especially with runners in scoring position, has been abysmal.

The team is a combined 3-16 with RISP this series, and has left a whopping 16 runners on base. In Game 2, the Dodgers had runners on 1st and 3rd with nobody out in the 6th inning. They also had runners on 2nd and 3rd with one out in the 7th inning. They scored a combined zero runs.

The Dodgers’ reliance on the home run ball has been worrying, and their inability to put the ball in play and score runs has been agonizing.

Dodger fans took to Twitter to share their concerns with the team’s offense.

These were just a few of the many good takes from Dodger fans on Twitter, so be sure to check those out and join the conversation.

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts did speak to the media today about his offense, and shared some encouraging words.

“I like where our offense is at. I really do,” Roberts said. “I think certainly getting Mookie and Justin on track, I expect that to happen. But I think up and down the lineup, guys are taking good team at-bats. It’ll be good to get C.T. in there, and Austin will be catching tomorrow. I think offensively, team offense, we’re going to be okay in the next potential three games.”

Hopefully Roberts is right, as the time is now for the Dodgers to figure things out. If they leave San Diego empty-handed, there will be a lot more questions entering the long offseason.
