Dodgers Come From Behind to Beat Padres

Los Angeles Dodgers vs. San Diego Padres - 8/11/17 MLB Pick ...

Union night tonight at Dodger Stadium

Seager yanked a two-out, three-run double to right field in the sixth inning to give Los Angeles the lead for good in a 6-3 victory against the San Diego Padres at Dodger Stadium. Renfroe cut off a single in the gap by Bellinger to keep Taylor from scoring after he broke from first on a 3-2 pitch with two outs in the third.

He has eight home runs in his last 14 games. The young shortstop lined a single to right field that brought in two runs and then got caught in a rundown between first and second.

The Dodgers said he checked out fine after X-rays were taken.

"I just think he's incredibly special", Green said. Corey Seager entered Thursday with 119 hits, 70 runs, 19 homers and 55 RBI, while Justin Turner had 106 hits, 52 runs, 15 homers and 48 RBI.

"Those are the kinds of empty at-bats that get us down", he said.

Los Angeles rookie first baseman Cody Bellinger stretched the lead to 5-3 in the seventh inning with his 34th home run of the season. He struck out seven hitters, walked four and scattered seven base hits in the quality start.

The Rookie of the Year frontrunner is one home run shy of Mike Piazza's franchise record of 35 home runs by a rookie in a single season, and has hit 17 homers in the 7th inning or later. The last time Richard faced the Dodgers (June 30), he went just 4.1 innings and gave up seven earned on nine hits.

Trailing 3-1 in the sixth, the Dodgers loaded the bases when Chase Utley doubled between walks to Yamani Grandal and Yasiel Puig from Craig Stammen (0-2).

"I had no idea", said Taylor. "His stuff looked good, but that hit from Chacin was a tough one, but his stuff was really good".

Padres: RHP Jhoulys Chacin (11-8, 4.15 ERA) hopes to continue his turnaround Saturday.

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. "We get a large percentage of our runs from the home run".

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. He is 1-3 with an 8.63 ERA against the Dodgers in three starts and three relief appearances.

Jose Torres (6-3), called up Friday for the fifth time this season, went 1 2/3 innings to earn the win.

Los Angeles now leads the National League West by a season-high 17 games, their largest division lead since September 8 1955.

Utley said he asked De Jesus to reposition himself and he refused.
