Dinelson Lamet got the start on the mound for the Padres.

Lamet had early struggles. Joc Pederson hit a lead off homerun to start the game. Lamet hit Max Muncy in the next at bat giving the Dodgers a man on first with no outs. After forcing two ground outs, Lamet gave up an RBI double to Corey Seager giving the Dodgers a 2-0 lead after the top of the 1st.

The Padres were able to get to Dodgers pitcher Ross Stripling in the bottom of the 1st. After a lead off walk, Stripling struck the next two batters out. Wil Myers then singled to right fielder giving the Dodgers a man on first and third base. Francisco Mejia hit a double to the right-center gap driving both Myers and Greg Garcia in tying the game at 2 runs. Josh Naylor then singled on a ground ball up the middle giving the Padres a 3-2 lead.

The Dodgers led the 2nd inning off with a homer as well. Chris Taylor hit a solo home run over the center field wall. This home run tied the game at 3-3.

In the bottom of the 4th, Casey Sadler relieved Stripling. The Padres threatened Sadler quickly. After Garcia was intentionally walked, Manuel Margot flew out to center field getting Sadler out of the inning with no harm done.

Joc Pederson led the 5th inning off with his second home run of the game giving the Dodgers a 4-3 lead.

In the bottom of the 6th, Greg Garcia drove Seth Mejias-Brean in with a two out single tying the game up at 4.
