After a fast start by the Dodgers propelled by an A.J. Pollock solo home run in the opening inning, the Padres rallied back in the bottom of the ninth to tie things up at 4-4, but of course with it being spring, the two teams decided to call it a draw after nine innings.
Aside from the three early runs allowed, Ryan Weathers had an otherwise decent start in the mound, striking out six batters and walking one. Nabil Crismatt, the 26-year old righty, pitched the game’s final two innings, recording four Ks and allowing a single hit.
Reserve catcher Webster Rivas led the Padres with a pair of RBIs while Jurickson Profar was awarded the third San Diego RBI after getting walked in the bottom of the third.
Brian O’Grady was able to scamper home on an errant pitch by Mike Kickham in the seventh to shrink the lead to 4-2 before Rivas smacked a two-RBI single to right to score O’Grady once more and Jorge Mateo, solidifying the final score fo 4-4.

Apologies for some reason thinking the Padres played yesterday. That was odd of me. However, the Friars (7-11) are 100 percent playing tomorrow at 1:10 p.m. against the Angels (10-7).
