He avoided being sent back to the minors when Adrian Gonzalez went on the disabled list for the first time in his 14-year career. The Los Angeles Dodgers offense is on fire right now, and they've won eight straight games when scoring more than three runs.
Clayton Kershaw (5-2) allowed a run and five hits over 7 1/3 innings, striking out nine and walking four. Hunter Renfroe followed with the first of his two walks but Kershaw got Blash to fly out. After he leadoff home run to Schimpf, he almost got himself ejected after he argued a ball call by home plate umpire, Toby Basner, on a pitch that looked like it should have been strike three.
"I thought he battled really well today", Padres manager Andy Green said.

"I was trying to go down and away with my sinker", Chacin said.
But Cory Spangenberg led off the fourth with a double and scored on Ryan Schimpf's single to tie it at 1. That turned Manual Margot's deep fly ball to center field from an inning-ending fly out to a sacrifice fly, driving in the go-ahead run.

With over 130 games to be played, there certainly will be more ups and downs.
Yes, it's a good thing the Dodgers kept Bellinger in the bigs after activating Joc Pederson from the disabled list.
Padres: C Hector Sanchez was hit on the right foot by a foul ball by Pederson in the sixth. You may recall it was Kershaw who got 14 runs in an Opening Day blowout at Dodger Stadium. The switch was made because right-hander Brandon McCarthy, now scheduled to start Sunday, tweaked his left shoulder in the weight room.
Rookie Cody Bellinger homered twice and drove in four runs, and Kenta Maeda and five relievers combined on a four-hitter to lead the Los Angeles Dodgers to an 8-2 victory against the San Diego Padres on Friday night.
