The Los Angeles Dodgers topped the San Diego Padres by the score of 11-6, extending their current win-streak to six games. Julio Urias struck out nine Padres over five innings, leaving the game after the Dodgers scored seven runs in the fifth inning.

The biggest share of the credit goes to shortstop Corey Seager. Seager was 2 for 5 with a home run and a double, while scoring 2 times and driving in 5 on the day. Seager had no bigger at-bat than in the top of the fifth when he hit a grand slam. Seager’s 17th home run on the season gave the Dodgers the lead, 7-0.

Cody Bellinger and Gavin Lux also added three hits each, with Bellinger hitting his 18th home run.

It was a little shaky after Urias left the game, as Dustin May gave up two runs in two thirds of an inning, raising his ERA to a lovely 7.62. But Joe Kelly came in and struck out the side, while Kenley Jansen followed him and gave up one earned run on two walks and three hits.

It was a nice win for our side today,” said Dodgers manager Dave Roberts. “Not perfect, but we’ll take it.

With the win, Urias has upped his record to 5-4, while Michel Baez got the loss for the Padres.

The Dodgers are now 55-37, and Ross Stripling takes the mound tomorrow against Joey Lucchesi, looking to extend the winning streak to seven games.
