The Dodgers had an eight-run second inning today, punctuated by Andre Ethier's grand slam. That should be enough to tame the woeful Padres, right? Actually, it ended up being close at the end, causing the Dodgers to employ Javy Guerra to get the save and secure the victory. Hiroki Kuroda (6.0 IP, 7 H, 4 R, 2 BB, 3 Ks and 2 HR) might not have known what to do with all that early run support, but Kenley Jansen was magnificent and the Padres eventually went down, and the Dodgers win their seventh in their last eight games. And eight, is enough, to fill our hearts with love.
