San Diego (AP)-Yu Darvish scored 11 points in six exciting games, becoming the fastest major league player in his career to reach 1,500 points, Manny Machado and Jack Cronenworth With a home run, the San Diego Padres beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 6-2 on Monday night in the opening game of a three-game series between NL West opponents.
Davis (7-2) reached 1,500 strikeouts in 197 starts. He allowed the Dodgers to hit two hits, including a solo home run by Mookie Betts, and only took one goal.
The Padres’ record against the Dodgers this season has improved to 5-3.
After playing two interesting series in front of a crowd with limited capacity, this is the first time the team will face each other in a full game this season after the California reopening plan took effect last week. The sold-out crowd of 42,220 seems to be fairly even among Dodgers and Padres fans.
Last year, the Dodgers swept the Padres in their NL Divisional Series to win the World Series.
Davidsh’s only big mistake was to make Bates’ home run twice out in the third inning (his ninth inning). This ended Davidsh’s seven consecutive strikeouts.
When Davidish gave Steven Suzza Jr. lead in the sixth game, he completed his landmark 1,500th strikeout. After Cronenworth’s first base error made Gavin Lux out of the game twice, Darvish only allowed his second shot, which was struck by Justin Turner.
Rookie second baseman Kim Ha-seong then played well on Will Smith’s onslaught and ended the game, although he appeared to have injured a finger and was replaced by Cronenworth in the next game.
Machado hit a three-point home run in Julio Urias (9-3), giving the Padres a 4-0 lead, and then the Dodgers went out in the first game. Urías allowed Tommy Pham’s first double, walked Fernando Tatis Jr. and allowed Cronenworth’s opposite double to leave, then Machado took his 11th home run away.
After Tatis hit to the left for the opening double, Kronenworth homered to the right in the fifth inning. This is Cronanworth’s ninth.
Davidsh played for the Dodgers in the second half of 2017, including the loss to Houston in the World Series. On December 29, the Padres acquired him in a trade with the Chicago Cubs.
Will Smith defeated the San Diego rescuer Craig Stargate in the eighth inning.
Baker Mayfield of the Cleveland Browns became the latest NFL quarterback to watch the game at Peco Park. He wore the Mayfield No. 6 Padres jersey, sat in the first row behind home plate with his party, and thanked the team on social media. Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson and his wife Ciara own a house in the San Diego area, and they participated in a game with their children earlier this year. Former Saints and San Diego Chargers QB Drew Briss and his family have played several games in the past, as did former Chargers signal caller Philip Rivers. Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers owns a house in Del Mar, and he visited the San Francisco Giants air-raid shelter before the Peco Park game.
The Dodgers’ LHP Clayton Kershaw (8-6, 3.36 ERA) and Padres’ LHP Blake Snell (2-3, 5.72) will have a wonderful matchup on Tuesday night. Kershaw led 1-1 with a 2.08 ERA in his two starts against San Diego this year, and a 22-8 ERA in his 42 career games against them. Snell did not decide on the Dodgers twice this year. In the sixth game of last year, he was pulled from the sixth game of the World Series by Tampa Bay manager Kevin Cash. The Rays led the Dodgers 1-0. The Dodgers won the game and the series.
