Gordon Helps Dodgers Start 3-0 After Defeating Padres In 11
Dodgers’ Best Start Since 1999
SAN DIEGO (AP) Dee Gordon singled in the go-ahead run with two outs in the 11th inning and the Los Angeles Dodgers, who blew a five-run lead in the fifth, beat the San Diego Padres 6-5 on Saturday night for their third straight win.
It was Dee’s third hit of the night. He also walked twice, stole three bases and scored twice.
A.J. Ellis, who homered in the fourth, started the winning rally with a leadoff single off Anthony Bass (0-1) and was sacrificed by Justin Sellers. With two outs, Gordon singled down the right field line to bring in Ellis from second.
Todd Coffey (1-0) pitched the 10th for the win and Javy Guerra pitched the 11th for his second save in as many chances.
