That is until Bobby Miller and an opportunistic offense responded with a nearly perfect script Saturday afternoon.

In a 9-0 win over the Philadelphia Phillies, the Dodgers shook off some of the frustrations from earlier this week — when they began their two-city swing with three losses, all in walk-off fashion, out of four games — by offering the kind of complete performance that has too often eluded them of late.

Friday recap: Dodgers dealt double blow with Julio Urías’ delayed return and walk-off loss

PHILADELPHIA — The Dodgers have been running short on pitching options lately.

Both to start games — and finish them.

In less than a week, the team went from having a potential surplus of starting pitching to being shorthanded in the rotation once again after a setback to Julio Urías’ hamstring injury.

In that same time, they’ve watched their once-improving bullpen slip back into a late-game slump, suffering their third walk-off loss of this week’s trip in a 5-4 defeat Friday to the Philadelphia Phillies.
