Gran­dal hits grand slam as Dodgers dump Padres

Lethbridge Herald - - SPORTS -

Yas­mani Gran­dal hit a grand slam, Matt Kemp had a three-run homer and Hyun-Jin Ryu struck out nine in six strong in­nings for the Los An­ge­les Dodgers, who beat the San Diego Padres 10-3 Mon­day night.

Gran­dal, ac­quired from San Diego in a trade for Kemp in De­cem­ber 2014, hit his third ca­reer slam with two outs in the ninth off Kazuhisa Makita.

Kemp, booed by Padres fans as he came to the plate in the third, elicited cheers from Dodgers fans at Petco Park when he drove the first pitch he saw from lefty Rob­bie Er­lin (0-2) an es­ti­mated 399 feet to left-cen­tre to high­light the in­ning, which was a mess for the Padres.

Third base­man Chris­tian Villanueva and right fielder Hunter Ren­froe com­mit­ted er­rors that be­gan the in­ning.
