Dodgers Come From Behind to Beat Padres

14 August 2017

Maeda had the shortest start of this season in a 5-3 loss in San Diego on July 2, allowing five earned runs and eight hits in 3 2/3 innings.

LOS ANGELES The Dodgers haven't gone without wins in consecutive games since falling twice to Atlanta at home last month.

Among the active players for the Dodgers, Seager has had the most success, collecting six hits in 15 at-bats against Perdomo, though none were for extra bases.

Ryu struggled to connect with catcher Yasmani Grandal throughout the game. And as Seager got caught in a rundown between first and second - or worked himself into one - Yasiel Puig raced home and broke the 3-3 tie with a head-first slide. When the ball found its way to Myers at first base, Puig broke for home and Myers made an very bad throw up the 1st base line that allowed the Dodgers outfielder to dive in with the go-ahead run.

"I think the reads were right all the way around on that particular play, Solarte just kind of threw the ball down and away to Wil and Wil had a hard time redirecting that ball back to the plate", said San Diego manager Andy Green.

Chris Taylor made it 6-3 with a solo homer with two outs in the eighth inning.

Bellinger is one shy of Mike Piazza's franchise record of 35 home runs by a rookie in a single season, and crushed his 17 home run of the year in the 7 inning or later.

Cory Spangenberg hit two home runs for the Padres.

Dodgers relievers Tony Watson, Brandon Morrow, Pedro Baez and Kenley Jansen each threw a shutout inning to help even the series heading into Sunday's finale. Corey Seager made sure their amazingly consistent script didn't change Saturday night.

Tony Watson (6-4) pitched a flawless sixth inning for his first win since the Dodgers acquired him from Pittsburgh at the July 31 trade deadline. LA and Arizona split the first two games, then on Thursday the Dodgers scored three times in the first and fifth innings on the way to an 8-6 win.

Overall, the Dodgers pitching staff leads the Major Leagues with a 3.12 ERA and a 1.12 WHIP, while leading the national league in strikeouts with 1,100.
