The Dodgers take a 2-0 lead.

The Dodgers take a 2-0 lead.

The Dodgers used 7 pitchers. The win went to Kenta Maeda, but I can't even tell you how the official scorer made that decision. He arrived in the 5th, with the Dodgers ahead 3-2. He faced three guys and left.

Boy, has the game changed. Way of the world. I think that kind of W will happen more and more, as starters pitch ever-fewer innings. Per the rules, the starter has to go five for a W. That does raise an interesting possibility for the future. If the game keeps evolving, with starters regularly pitching only 3-4 innings, and that 5-inning rule stays in place, the 30-game winner could return to the game - without ever starting a game.
