SAN DIEGO (AP) — Mookie Betts hit a game-tying home run with two outs in the ninth inning and James Outman hit a two-run homer in the tenth to give the Los Angeles Dodgers a 5-2 win over the Los Angeles Dodgers. San Diego Padres. Sunday.
The Dodgers won two of three games in the series in the first meeting between the teams since the Padres stunned Los Angeles in the National League Division Series in October.
With the Padres leading 2–1, San Diego reliever Josh Hader got two outs before Betts homered over the left-center field fence to tie the game.
In the tenth, Michael Busch drove in the go-ahead run before Outman’s throw.
Dodgers reliever Caleb Ferguson (2-0) got the win and Evan Phillips earned his fifth save with a scoreless 10th inning. Brent Honeywell (2-1), who pitched the 10th inning for San Diego, took the loss.
Manny Machado had three hits and an RBI for the Padres. Fernando Tatis Jr. doubled and made a spectacular sliding catch in the second inning to rob Max Muncy of a hit.
Padres starter Joe Musgrove was sharper in his third start of the season than he was in his first two starts. He allowed one run and three hits in five innings while striking out five.
The Dodgers knocked him out in the sixth after Will Smith doubled to push in Freddie Freeman, who reached second on a two-base error by San Diego left fielder Juan Soto.
Padres relievers Tim Hill and Steven Wilson combined to get all three outs of the inning without allowing the Dodgers to tie the run.
The Padres attacked Dodgers starter Julio Urías in the first inning. Tatis and Machado hit back-to-back doubles to give San Diego a 1-0 lead. Later in the inning, Xander Bogaerts hit a ball off the wall in right field that Betts put his glove on but was unable to catch.
