August 2, 2019 (Los Angeles) - After losing badly in game one last night, the Padres tried again against the Dodgers tonight in game two with Eric Lauer on the mound against Dustin May for the Dodgers, making his first major league start.

The Padres struck first in the second with Francisco Mejia’s single to left that scored Eric Hosmer to give the Padres a 1-0 lead after two.


That lead lasted until the fourth when none other than Cody Bellinger blasted a two-run homer to center and the Dodgers led 2-1 after four.


Hosmer tied the game on a liner to right that skipped off of Bellinger’s glove to scare Wil Myers.  Josh Taylor launched a ball to deep right center to score two and the Padres reclaimed the lead in the sixth 4-2 and kicked May out of the game.


Myers added one more in the seventh, a single to left center that scored Valhalla alum Greg Garcia, and won 5-2 to even the series.




Game three is tomorrow at 6:10 p.m.  Cal Quantrill starts against Walker Buehler for the Dodgers.
