Ciriaco Leads Padres Past Dodgers 6-3
SAN DIEGO (AP) — Pedro Ciriaco tripled in the go-ahead run in the seventh inning and hit a two-run homer in the eighth to lead the San Diego Padres to a 6-3 victory against the Los Angeles Dodgers on Thursday night.
The Padres, who had three terrific defensive plays, won for the eighth time in 10 games and popped above .500 for the second time this season.
Dodgers rookie Yasiel Puig homered on his first swing at Petco Park, giving him six overall and three against the Padres since his big league debut on June 3.
Nick Vincent (2-0) pitched the seventh for the win.
The Dodgers, who’ve been in last place in the NL West since May 6, have lost eight of 11.
It was L.A.’s first visit to Petco Park since the teams brawled on April 11.
