The Dodgers’ six-game win streak comes to an end, as The Turd has now blown six of his 12 save opportunities, which is — very bad. Their lead over the Padres in the NL West is now three games, as the loss drops the Dodgers to 55-38 and the win elevated the Padres to 52-41.
Ross Stripling allowed only one run over five and a third, bringing his ERA down to 2.45, and the Dodgers held a comfortable 5-1 lead through six innings. However, Abraham Almonte hit a three-run homer off Adam Kolarek that cut the lead to one. The game then came to a dramatic end. In the bottom of the ninth, with San Diego trailing 5-4, Manny Machado hit a curveball from Ferguson for a 3-run home run, giving the Padres the walk-off win.
