Padres defeated the Dodgers 5-3, sweeping the opponent for the first time in 8 years
San Diego (Associated Press)-Trent Grisham took the lead in the eighth inning, the base was loaded with a walk, and the San Diego Padres hit three solo homers on Trevor Bauer to win on Wednesday night. 5-3 defeated the Los Angeles Dodgers. They swept the Western Netherlands in three games for the first time in eight seasons.
The game ended in front of 43,961 spectators, with lead batsman Albert Pujols in front of third baseman Manny Machado, who placed Will Smith in second place. This earned Mark Melancon his 23rd save, mostly in majors.
San Diego has a 7-3 record against the Dodgers this season, including four consecutive victories, and has won two of the three-game series against the eight-time defending champion. The Dodgers swept the Padres in the NL Division Series in October and won the World Series.
After losing 13 of the previous 17 games, San Diego has won seven consecutive games overall, including four sweeps of the Cincinnati Redskins.
This is San Diego’s first sweep of the Dodgers at Dodger Stadium from April 15th to 17th, 2013. This is their first home sweep of the Dodgers since September 6-8, 2010.
The score equalized by 3 points, and the first homer Jake Cronenworth (Jake Cronenworth) started the winning rally with the opening doubles of Blake Treinen (1-3), who started the winning rally from right fielder Matt Beatty (Matt Beaty) jumped off his gloves. Manny Machado singled out, Victor Gonzalez came on and allowed Eric Hosmer’s sacrifice short play. Before Gonzalez walked Grisham to introduce Cronanworth, Will Myers deliberately loaded the base on foot. Victor Caratini added a sacrifice fly.
Cronanworth and Machado were out back-to-back twice in the first game against Ball, and Ball won the 2020 NL Cy Young Award during Cincinnati. Caratini led 3-2 in the seventh inning and led with a home run.
When Max Muncy doubled and scored on the right side of Justin Turner’s opposite singles, the Dodgers tied the score to eighth.
Bauer lets you run and hit five hits, strikeouts 10 times, and walk four times in more than six games.
After allowing the first consecutive home run, Ball settled down and retired 9 of the next 10 batsmen, then went in and out of jam on the fourth. After Ball defeated Machado and Eric Hosmer, he walked beside Miles and allowed Grisham to get the basic rules of doubles. Caratini deliberately walked to the starter Joe Musgrove, who looked surprised.
Before Los Angeles broke through in the fourth quarter, Musgrove retired 9 of the top 10 Dodgers. Muncy played a starting double, Cody Bellinger, who was activated earlier in the day, took an out, and Smith played an RBI single. First baseman Hosmer made a reverse double play with Bidti’s catch and forced Smith into second place, but shortstop Fernando Tatis’ return ball skipped Musgrove due to a mistake. Ringer scored.
Musgrove pitched the Padres’ first no-hitter game on April 9. He hit twice, hit the ball twice, and scored once in six innings. He shot five and walked two.
Tim Hill (4-3) won.
