Kenta Maeda made his most recent appearance out of the bullpen in the top of the eighth and things got a bit wild for the Japanese right-hander. Richard is making his sixth start against the Dodgers this season, having gone 1-2 with a 5.52 ERA in the previous five. "No one player can be bigger than the team". LAD has hit Richard hard in his career. For instance, current shortstop Erick Aybar is pretty much a placeholder for Fernando Tatis Jr., who was so good in low A ball at Fort Wayne that he bypassed high A Lake Elsinore and went directly to Double-A San Antonio to finish the season. Offensively, Wil Meyers leads the Padres with 135 hits and 73 RBI while Manuel Margot and Yangervis Solarte have combined for 242 hits and 102 RBI. Utley then took off on a grounder by Bellinger to first base and beat Myers' throw home. In the first inning Logan Forsythe hit an RBI double to center field which brought in three runs for the Dodgers. They were 18-18 in one-run games going into this week's series in The Ravine, and they've had 33 come-from-behind victories. "But the reality for most guys in professional baseball is that very few guys get that type of security, so you have to get comfortable in that uncomfortable realm of somebody else breathing down your neck".

Rookie Rob Segedin doubled to start the second, advanced to second on a sacrifice by Darvish and scored on Taylor's fly to center.

Renfroe, a right fielder, had launched his 25th home run this season, establishing a Padres rookie record in the process.

Los Angeles acquired Darvish from Texas just before the July 31 trade deadline to help bolster a rotation that has designs on a World Series title. Only one of Wood's 86 pitches Tuesday touched 92 mph and he struck out just one in his six innings. His 401 foot homer helped the Dodgers pull away even further with a beefy lead 8-1. The Dodgers won the opener without Yasiel Puig, who was benched after showing up late for early batting practice.
