The Dodgers and Giants have one of the best rivalries in the league. Unfortunately, MLB brass couldn’t spare a home plate umpire worthy of the matchup on Monday night.
Angel Hernandez was on duty and he was back to his old tricks.

Will Smith did a ton of work to frame that strike and Hernandez fell right for it.

The Dodgers immediately grabbed the lead in the bottom of the first with back-to-back home runs from Mookie Bets and Max Muncy. No strike calls necessary.
