MLB: Seattle Mariners at Los Angeles Dodgers

Los Angeles Dodgers right fielder Joc Pederson (31) is out at home against the tag of Seattle Mariners catcher Austin Nola (23) during the second inning at Dodger Stadium. 

A night after combining for 20 runs on 26 hits with seven homers in a never-ending slowpitch-softball-like slugfest, the Dodgers and Mariners delivered quite the opposite with a more normal form of baseball Tuesday in the finale of the two-game series at Dodger Stadium.

But regardless of the style of this game, the blemishes of the Mariners team this year – minor miscues that end up being costly against good team, a major malfunctioning bullpen and an offense that is highly unpredictable – could not be hidden or avoided in a 2-1 defeat.
