Kershaw, Bellinger lead Dodgers to 10-2 win over Padres

Now it seems they have developed a second in first baseman Cody Bellinger.

Los Angeles Dodgers starting pitcher Clayton Kershaw reacts after a called ball by umpire Toby Basner while throwing to San Diego Padres' Wil Myers in the eighth inning of a baseball game Saturday, May 6, 2017, in San Diego.

What makes the loss more aggravating for Padres fans is the Dodgers only had eight hits. The Padres have lost four in a row and 10 of their last 14.

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said earlier this week he hadn't discussed a possible disabled list stint with Gonzalez.

Gutierrez, who was just activated off the disabled list on Tuesday, walked in the fifth inning, then appeared to hurt himself running the bases. He understandably wanted to maintain his streak, but it may be time for him to rest up and try to get back to full health.

As Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times noted, Gonzalez will go on the disabled list for the first time in his career. Once the Dodgers get that many runs for Kershaw the game is basically over.

"You never want to see that because I looked up to Adrian when I was growing up", Bellinger said.

The game opened with an unusual twist.

NOTES: The first names on both batteries Saturday night were Clayton and Austin.

With Washington still on the power play, Niskanen, all alone in the slot, beat Fleury on a one-timer off a pass from Ovechkin. When media were allowed in, Orpik, an alternate captain, was critical of his teammates. "It was very intense", Hagelin said.

The Clayton/Clayton matchup was scoreless until the fourth. "I didn't attack the strike zone much".

It was the first grand slam of Bellinger's career and his fifth home run in his first 11 games as a big leaguer, a Dodgers franchise record. Gutierrez scored when an attempted pickoff throw from catcher Austin Hedges hit the left fielder in the back and rolled down the line.

Bellinger bookended the scoring for the Boys in Blue with an RBI single in the fourth, and a grand slam in the top of the ninth. Three Dodgers pitchers each walked a batter in the inning.

Maeda struck out six straight in the second and third innings and finished with eight Ks in five-plus innings.

Neither starter got through six innings.

"I thought he battled really well today", Padres manager Andy Green said. Yasiel Puig threw out Solarte at third.

Is the over a good bet tonight when NL West rivals the Padres and Dodgers square off in San Diego at 10:10PM ET? Close to an inch of rain is forecast and temperatures are expected to be 15-20 degrees below normal. Gutierrez left the game in the sixth inning with hip tightness. And Padres rookie RF Hunter Renfroe had drawn only two walks while striking out 36 times.

Adrian Gonzalez in in his 14th Major League Baseball season, and he has never spent time on the disabled list.
