The fireworks started early in the game when in the first inning with two outs the Dodgers loaded the bases. Austin Barnes hit his first grand slam of his career to make the score 4-0. With Alex Wood on the mound the game seemed about over. In the bottom of the first, Alex Wood accused Padre Jose Pirela of stealing signs from 2nd base.
Justin Turner went 3-3 in the game and hit a two run shot in the fourth inning to make the score 6-0. The Padres got on the board in the bottom of the fourth. Logan Forsythe finally breaking out had four hits today. The Dodgers seem like a well oiled machine right now. Even Joc Pederson, Yasiel Puig, and Trayce Thompson have been hitting.
Austin Barnes added a three run shot in the sixth to make the score 10-1. Barnes had seven RBI’s on the day. On any given day these Dodgers always seem to have someone different step up and contribute. Alex Wood became the first Dodgers pitcher to start a season 9-0 in 41 years. Wood’s Era is at 1.83 and I would be shocked if he isn’t on the all star team.
The Dodgers have 50 home runs this month which is a franchise record in any month. The Padres added a two run shot off Sergio Romo in the ninth to make the score 10-4. The Diamondbacks also lost so the Dodgers lead them by 3.5 games. I gotta say today was a good day.
