McCullers Silences LA Bats; Dodger Stadium Fans Jeer Astros
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Lance McCullers Jr. threw 6 2/3 shutout innings and the Houston Astros withstood the raucous, heckling fans at Dodger Stadium to blank Los Angeles 3-0. The crowd of 52,692 — the largest in the majors this season — had waited a long time to let José Altuve, Carlos Correa and the Astros know just how they felt about possibly being cheated out of a 2017 World Series title. The jeering started early as the crowd in the upper deck and bleachers shouted “Cheaters!” at Houston players during warmups and threw back Astros homers in batting practice. Houston pitchers gave up just five singles and struck out 13. This was the first chance Dodgers fans had to jeer the Astros in person at Chavez Ravine since their sign-stealing scandal was revealed late in 2019.
