The Dodgers had an opportunity to win their third straight game in a walk-off fashion, but Logan Forsythe‘s clutch two-run single in the 11th inning gave the Padres the win, 6-3.
Eric Stults was solid yet again for the Padres, matching Kershaw pitch-for-pitch. Stults got through six innings, and allowed just a run, on a solo homer by Padre killer Andre Ethier. It was Either’s fifth bomb against San Diego in 2012.
Grandal socked a two-run bomb, to tie the game at three. It was Grandal’s seventh bomb of the year, and gave the Padres new life.
The score stayed deadlocked at three, when Logan Forsythe stroked a clutch two-run single to give the Padres the lead. National League Player of the Month Chase Headley followed with an RBI single to give the Padres a little insurance.
Tommy Layne picked up the win, striking out the side in his only inning of work.
