The Dodgers returned home tonight and were greeted by a Padres team fighting for their playoff spot. Well, the Dodgers played like a team without anything to play for in a 7-1 loss and have now dropped three games in a row.
Dustin May started after back-to-back quality outings against the Marlins, but three homers ruined his night today. He gave up a pair of two-run shots on the night and exited with two on in the 6th. Heath Hembree actually almost got out of it for him, but hung a pitch for a three-run homer before he was able to end the frame.
May’s line on the night basically tells the tale, unfortunately: 5 IP, 4 H, 6 R, 5 BB, 5 K, 87 Pitches.
On the other side was Yu Darvish, who shut the Dodgers down for seven innings. They had just two at-bats with RISP against him, so there’s not much to comment on, honestly.
90-41 on the year and 45-17 at Chavez Ravine.
