Dodgers Come From Behind to Beat Padres

Puig is hitting.255 with a career-high 21 home runs to go along with 55 RBIs and 53 runs, but it was his nine-pitch walk Saturday night that earned considerable praise and attention, as it loaded the bases to set up Seager's bases-clearing double that gave Los Angeles the lead for good in the 6-3 victory. Coming into Thursday, Wil Myers led the way on 97 hits, 56 runs, 22 homers and 55 RBI, while Hunter Renfroe had 89 hits, 45 runs, 20 homers and 45 RBI.

The Dodgers have become so accustomed to winning this season, they are nearly stunned when they do not rally to pull out a 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.

"I tried to stay in it as long as possible", Seager said of the run down. Rookie Manuel Margot is leading the charge for the rebuilding Padres, who continue their three-game series against the host Dodgers on Saturday.

Bellinger homered in the seventh off Carter Capps and with 34 home runs is one shy of Mike Piazza. "I just didn't want to strike out".

He guided the Dodgers to two World Series titles and now serves as a special advisor to the chairman.

According to Utley, the veteran asked De Jesus to move out of his sight line at multiple times throughout the game, but in the ninth inning, did not want to move for Utley.

"I thought Hyun-Jin was good", said Roberts of Ryu.

Dodgers starter Hyun-Jin Ryu recorded his fourth strikeout when he got Carlos Asuaje swinging for the second out of the third inning, but Jose Pirela and Renfroe followed with doubles into almost the same spot in the left field corner to tie the score at 1.

Cody Bellinger and Chris Taylor added solo home runs after the Dodgers (82-34) scored three times on San Diego's bullpen.

The Dodgers bullpen of Tony Watson, Brandon Morrow, Pedro Baez, and Kenley Jansen combined for four scoreless innings of relief as Jansen shut the door on San Diego for his 31 save of the season.

They were down 3-1 in the 6th inning, looking like the might drop their second game in a row to the San Diego Padres.
