AJ Ellis Hits Walk-Off Sac Fly To Win It For Dodgers 1-0 Over Padres

LOS ANGELES (AP) — A.J. Ellis hit a bases-loaded sacrifice fly in the ninth inning, lifting the Los Angeles Dodgers to a 1-0 victory over the San Diego Padres on Saturday night.

Adrian Gonzalez greeted Kevin Quackenbush (1-2) with a leadoff double before Matt Kemp struck out and Andre Ethier was intentionally walked. Juan Uribe then worked out a seven-pitch walk that included two checked swings that were upheld on appeal by first base umpire Jim Wolf. Padres manager Bud Black then employed a drawn-in five-man infield, but Ellis was able to lift a 1-2 pitch to right field.

Kenley Jansen (1-3) pitched a scoreless ninth for the victory, striking out cleanup hitter Yasmani Grandal with runners at first and second. The Dodgers’ victory, coupled with San Francisco’s loss, put the Dodgers back in front of the Giants by a full game in the NL West.
