With all the scoring and drama that happened last night, everyone wanted to take a break. But the Dodgers were ready to get back to work by the fifth inning. They loaded the bases and Darvish walked Kershaw to score Zach McKinstry. Luckily, Darvish stopped the bleeding and the Dodgers led 1-0 after five.

April 17, 2021 (San Diego) - Last night was a long night. We even got into weird baseball past midnight. It had a benches-clearing brawl, extra innings and double digit scoring and it was only the first game of the series, but the Dodgers came out on top and took game one. The Padres tried to rebound in game two tonight against Clayton Kershaw for the Dodgers against Yu Darvish.
Justin Turner added the dagger that allowed the Dodgers to take the series with a solo line drive homer to left and the Dodgers took the series from the Padres with a 2-0 win. The Padres fall to 9-7.
Tomorrow’s rubber game is at 1:10 p.m. Trevor Bauer starts for LA against Blake Snell.
