LA Dodgers fans admit to being wrong about Matt Beaty after he drove in three runs against the Seattle Mariners on Wednesday. Fans have taken to social media to share their surprise about Beaty’s impressive form.

The Dodgers are slowly building momentum after beating the Mariners 7-1 Wednesday night at Dodger Stadium.

Julio Urías pitched seven outstanding innings of two-hit ball, while Matt Beaty drove in three runs for the club’s first back-to-back victories in 25 days.

Matt Beaty’s recent performances have even led a certain section of the Dodgers fandom to admit they were wrong about the first baseman.

Matt Beaty delivers three RBI

Wednesday’s victory against the Mariners was the first time the Dodgers have won back to back games since 9-17 April.

It was also the first time they had scored at least six runs since that same period in April.

Beaty was one of the standout performers on Wednesday, going 2-for-3 with a double and three RBIs.

Beaty first got a two-RBI double in the fourth inning, before later bringing home another runner with a single in the fifth.

According to CBS Sports, since 24 April, Beaty has been slashing .394/.512/.545 with 18 RBI over 41 plate appearances.

Beaty’s impressive form has led some fans to reconsider their stance on him, with some even admitting they were ‘wrong’ about him.

When is the Dodgers’ next game?

The Dodgers have a day off on Thursday but return at home against the Marlins at the weekend.

Under Don Mattingly, Miami are 12-14 against LA, including 7-7 at Dodger Stadium.
