Grandal hits grand slam as Dodgers dump Padres
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.
