Kershaw, Bellinger lead Dodgers to 10-2 win over Padres

Kershaw, Bellinger lead Dodgers to 10-2 win over Padres

That move became official just a few hours later, hoping to give him time to recover from a sore right elbow.

Now it seems they have developed a second in first baseman Cody Bellinger. Those three runs were enough to secure the a win for the Dodgers, as the Padres were nearly completely ineffective against 2011 SBNation NL Cy Young Award co-winner Clayton Kershaw. The Padres have lost four in a row and 10 of their last 14. "Hitting home runs, laying down bunts for hits when they shift against him, playing defense - he's just an all-around great baseball player".

Kershaw allowed five hits and issued a season-high four walks against nine strikeouts in 7 1/3 innings.

It was the second time Kershaw defeated the Padres this season as he improved his career-mark against them to 16-6. "He did enough to win a baseball game against a good club".

"That was fantastic", Kershaw said of Bellinger.

The game opened with an unusual twist. The batteries tonight are Clayton & Austin and Clayton & Austin.

The Clayton/Clayton matchup was scoreless until the fourth. Gutierrez scored when an attempted pickoff throw from catcher Austin Hedges hit the left fielder in the back and rolled down the line. Yasiel Puig singled home Bellinger to make it 3-0. Then came his three-run shot in the Dodgers' four-run ninth.

Maeda struck out six straight in the second and third innings and finished with eight Ks in five-plus innings.

Padres manager Andy Green couldn't believe Bellinger got on top off Miguel Diaz's offering. "He couldn't get his sinker in the strike zone". Three games behind the Rockies in the division with a four-game series coming up in Colorado in the middle of May. Puig trotted home with a run when Taylor bounced a ground ball off of third base for a hit. Yangervis Solarte lined out to third baseman Turner to end the threat. Close to an inch of rain is forecast and temperatures are expected to be 15-20 degrees below normal. He has also played in all 29 games the Los Angeles Dodgers have played this season despite an ongoing right forearm issue, a left triceps strain and the most recent news that he has aggravated a herniated disc in his back. Hunter Renfroe followed with the first of his two walks but Kershaw got Blash to fly out. That included putting Adrian Gonzalez on the disabled list for the first time. The Dodgers have now beaten the Padres in five of six meetings this season by a total score of 45-14.
