The Dodgers were not able to take the series opener against the San Diego Padres on Friday, losing the game with a final score of 4-3. Ryu remained at 4-6, while his ERA went up from 3.53 to 3.63.

Seager has hit safely in eight of his last nine games and is batting.429 with four runs, two doubles, one home run and five RBI over that span.

Remarkably, Hill stayed in the game and pitched two more innings after the play.

The Los Angeles Dodgers were due for a clutch hit on Saturday night and Corey Seager came through in the sixth inning. Bellinger hit his team-leading 34th on a three-hit night while Taylor, who hit his 17th, reached base four times in also walking twice and adding a third-inning single.

With two outs in the fifth, Wil Myers launched a solo shot to right center to give the Padres a 3-1 lead.
