What an exciting game this was. The Dodgers’ pitching and offense absolutely dominated the Padres in Wednesday’s 10-0 victory over the Padres.

Let’s take a look at how it all went down!

We’ll get the Padres offense out of the way because, well, there wasn’t much. Rich Hill went seven innings and allowed just two hits! Then Brandon McCarthy and Kenley Jansen finished up the game, allowing just one hit between the two of them. Yeah, the pitching was that good.

As for offense, the bats were alive all night long. It would take forever to go through each individual inning because the hitting was that consistent. So we’ll just talk about the hits that brought in all ten runs!

The Dodgers got on the board first thanks to a sacrifice fly off the bat of Cody Bellinger. The hit scored Curtis Granderson from third base, who was brought into the game after Chris Taylor injured his left knee from slipping on first base. Then Kiké Hernandez hit into a force play that put the Dodgers up 2-0 in the first inning!

Los Angeles picked up another run in the bottom of the second thanks to an RBI single from Rich Hill. Yeah, that’s right. Rich Hill rakes.

The Dodgers broke the game open in the bottom of the third with with RBI singles from Justin Turner and Yasiel Puig, and an RBI double from Austin Barnes! After just three innings, the Dodgers were leading the Padres 7-0.

Then in the bottom of the 5th inning, Yasiel Puig made his way up to the plate and hit his 27th home run of the year! And the very next inning, Curtis Granderson and Corey Seager went back-to-back to put the Dodgers up 10-0!

Wow. That was a whole lot of offense! The Dodgers scored 28 runs in this series against the Padres, which is so promising with October right around the corner. Hopefully they can keep this momentum going for their final series in Colorado!

  1. Like I have said before. Never take Puig out of the 8th spot. It is quite obvious that he is comfortable and productive there.

    • If Dodger pitchers will continue taking batting practice and hit like Rich Hill has been of late, I’d be more inclined to agree. I’d prefer that Puig bat in the #5 or #6 slot AND move 1 inch closer to the plate when batting no matter what spot he is in.

    • Don’t forget the Padres took 3 of 4 against the Dodgers last month and also took the series against the DBacks.

  2. It would be nice if we swept the Rockies. It would be nicer if the Dodgers play this way through the playoffs, and noit run out of steam as they always do.. Forever a Dodger fan, from Brooklyn to LA…
