Hansel Robles picked a five-out rescue on 35 pitches, retiring three in a row after the Dodgers got runners on the corners with no outs in the ninth.
Over the past 27 games, Dodgers starters had been 18-2 with a 1.67 ERA. They hadn’t needed a starter give up five runs because Walker Buehler on May 29, and only 1 time all season had a rookie allowed five in 1 inning. The Arizona Diamondbacks scored five against Buehler from the fourth inning on March 31.
The Angels could then exhale, with finished off what looked hours before like a regular victory after a sudden outburst against Maeda.
