Before the Dodgers go on their well-deserved All-Star break, they have one more game against the Padres! With a win today they would go into the break having won their last series which would provide great momentum!

Luckily, the bats were alive and Maeda put on a spectacle to give us a 3-1 win over the Padres! Here are the highlights!

The Dodgers got off to a quick start in the bottom of the first thanks to Kendrick and Seager!

They would come back in the bottom of the second with another run thanks to Kendrick. He has been HOT as of late!

The Padres would avoid the shutout thanks to a solos shot by Norris.

However, AGon would answer in the bottom of the fifth with a solo shot of his own!

Maeda would exit after seven striking out a career high 13!

Jansen would come in to close things out in the top of the ninth and, though he struggled at first, he struck out two and got Solarte to pop up to get the win! Go Blue!
