The Padres increased their division lead over the idle San Francisco Giants to two games with their seventh victory in 10 games. The fourth-place Dodgers, whose sixth straight loss tied their longest skid this season, are a season-worst nine games off the pace after winning the last two division titles.
This game was a marathon of frustration. The Dodgers had 14 hits. The Padres had 14 hits. In the first three innings alone, the Dodgers left 300 men on base. It's true.
On the (barely) bright side, Matt Kemp went 5-for-5 with a HR and three RBIs, and George Sherrill made an appearance and didn't cause Dodger Stadium to collapse into Chavez Ravine. So there's that.
