On paper Wendlestedt called a favorable game for the Dodgers, although he made a few calls against the Dodgers in higher leverage scenarios. Notably, Ethier's called strike 3 in the 4th inning with 2 outs and runners on first and second (LI 1.54), and Grandal's called strike 1 in the ninth (LI 2.39). Ultimately the Grandal call would not hurt as he drew a walk anyway.
For now, Hunter Wendlestedt is our friend.
Close Calls & Reviews:
There were not any managerial challenges this game as all calls in the field were seemingly accurate. Of note, Wendlestedt's call of the put-out at home of Yellich by a great throw from Scott Van Slyke, and David Rackley was correct on two close calls at second base: Gordon's caught stealing in the third, and Van Slyke's advancing on Yellich's error in the seventh.
