Los Angeles, CA (Sports Network) - Adrian Gonzalez smacked a pair of
two run homers as the Los Angeles Dodgers cruised to a 9-2 victory over the
San Diego Padres.
Hanley Ramirez had two doubles, two RBI and a pair of runs scored, while
Yasiel Puig finished 4-for-5 with an RBI for the Dodgers, winners in three of
their last four games.
Hyun-Jin Ryu (13-5) allowed just one run on eight hits while fanning six over
6 1/3 innings to snap a two-start losing skid.
Edinson Volquez, who was signed to a one-year deal earlier on Friday, made his
LA debut. He gave up just one hit in one inning of relief. Volquez spent the
past two seasons with the Padres before he was released on Aug. 27.
With the win and an Arizona loss, the Dodgers extended their lead atop the NL
West to 10 1/2 games.
Logan Forsythe and Chris Denorfia drove in one run apiece for San Diego,
losers in three of their last four.
Eric Stults (8-12) was pegged with the loss after giving up four runs on eight
hits over 5 1/3 innings.
