Dodgers 4, San Diego 3

Los Angeles Times - - SPORTS - — Dy­lan Her­nan­dez

KEY MO­MENT: The Dodgers failed to pro­tect a one-run lead af­ter Ker­shaw de­parted from the game in the sev­enth in­ning, but made amends in the eighth. Howie Ken­drick led off the in­ning with a dou­ble to right field, ad­vanced to third base on a throw­ing er­ror by Matt Kemp and scored on a sin­gle by Justin Turner to tie the score, 3-3. Later in the in­ning, pinch-hit­ter Alex Guer­rero’s two-out sin­gle drove in An­dre Ethier for the go-ahead run.

AT THE PLATE: With two outs in the third in­ning, Adrian Gon­za­lez sin­gled to cen­ter field and drove in Joc Ped­er­son for the first run. A.J. El­lis dou­bled the Dodgers’ lead to 2-0 in the next in­ning, as his two-out sin­gle drove in Turner.

ON THE MOUND: Ker­shaw limited the Padres to a run and four hits over 62⁄ innings. He gave up a solo home run to

3 Clint Barmes in the sev­enth in­ning that re­duced the Dodgers’ lead to 2-1. Ker­shaw was re­placed by Yimi Garcia later in the in­ning, lead­ing to a Dodgers im­plo­sion. Garcia forced Wil My­ers to pop up in the in­field with two outs, but the ball dropped as Garcia ran into Gon­za­lez’s re­place­ment at first base, Turner. My­ers reached sec­ond base on the play, for which Turner was charged with an er­ror. The next bat­ter, Derek Nor­ris, blasted a two-run homer for a 3-2 Padres lead.

EX­TRA BASES: Hec­tor Oliv­era was pro­moted to triple-A Ok­la­homa from dou­ble-A Tulsa. An in­fielder from Cuba who fi­nal­ized a six-year, $62.5-mil­lion con­tract last month, Oliv­era played six games in dou­ble A, where he bat­ted .318 with a home run and six runs bat­ted in. . . . Triple-A in­fielder Dar­win Bar­ney, who made the Dodgers’ open­ing-day ros­ter, was des­ig­nated for as­sign­ment. Bar­ney was re­moved from the 40-man ros­ter to cre­ate a place for in­fielder Ron­ald Tor­reyes, who was pur­chased from the Toronto Blue Jays. Tor­reyes, 22, was as­signed to Tulsa. . . . Turner started at third base af­ter miss­ing the pre­vi­ous two pre­vi­ous games be­cause of a bruised left knee. . . . Side­lined out­fielder Scott Van Slyke could start a mi­nor league re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion stint as early as Satur­day, Manager Don Mat­tingly said.

UP NEXT: Zack Greinke (5-1, 1.92 ERA) will face the Padres and Ian Kennedy (3-5, 6.48) at Petco Park on Satur­day at 7 p.m. TV: Sport­sNet LA; Ra­dio: 570, 1020.
