Kershaw, Dodgers dominate Padres

Slumping Los Angeles Dodgers first baseman Adrian Gonzalez was placed on the disabled list for the first time in his 14-year career on Friday.

Bellinger, the son of former big leaguer Clay Bellinger, capped his big night with a three-run shot to straightaway center field off Miguel Diaz with one out in the ninth.

The Dodgers scored three runs in the fourth inning on four singles and a walk.

Kershaw allowed five hits - including a solo home run by Padres pinch-hitter Ryan Schimpf in the eighth to end the shutout bid - and issued a season-high four walks against nine strikeouts over 7 1/3 innings. After he leadoff home run to Schimpf, he almost got himself ejected after he argued a ball call by home plate umpire, Toby Basner, on a pitch that looked like it should have been strike three.

Said Padres manager Andy Green: "I've been aware of him for quite some time now and he took some very good swings today".

"I was trying to go down and away with my sinker", Chacin said. Gutierrez left the game in the sixth inning with hip tightness. He also made a nice running catch in the gap in the fifth inning and uncorked a laser throw from right field to throw Yangervis Solarte out at third in the fourth inning. "The ball just stayed flat in the middle".

The Padres grabbed the lead with an unearned run in the fifth on Manuel Margot's sacrifice fly.




In the ninth, singles by Seager, Turner and Yasmani Grandal (only Turner's left the infield) produced another run and Bellinger's second home run did the rest.

Maeda struck out six straight in the second and third innings and finished with eight Ks in five-plus innings. Puig trotted home with a run when Taylor bounced a ground ball off of third base for a hit.

Padres: RHP Trevor Cahill (3-3, 5.82 ERA) surrendered five hits and three runs (two earned) in 5 2/3 innings against the Dodgers last month.

Adrian Gonzalez in in his 14th Major League Baseball season, and he has never spent time on the disabled list. Gonzalez had played 1,774 games without a DL trip, the most among active players.

Los Angeles activated outfielder Joc Pederson (groin) to fill the roster spot. Kershaw beat the Padres 14-3 on opening day. The switch was made because right-hander Brandon McCarthy, now scheduled to start Sunday, tweaked his left shoulder in the weight room.

Another Clayton, Padres' starting pitcher, Clayton Richard, did not fair as well as the Dodgers avenged a loss to Richard in the second game of the season at Dodger Stadium.
