LOS ANGELES (AP) — Wil Myers keyed a four-run ninth inning with a tiebreaking single, sending the San Diego Padres to a rain-delayed 7-3 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Tuesday night.
Clint Barmes, who entered as a pinch hitter in the seventh, led off the ninth against Chris Hatcher (0-1) with his second single. Barmes went to third when catcher Yasmani Grandal overran a sacrifice bunt to the right of the plate by pinch-hitter Cory Spangenberg that had a lot of backspin on it, and hit him in the back with his errant throw to first.
Myers grounded the next pitch to right field to put San Diego ahead. Derek Norris followed with a two-run double, and Will Middlebrooks capped the rally with an RBI single.
Joaquin Benoit (1-0) got the victory despite giving up the tying run on an eighth-inning homer by Adrian Gonzalez — his second in two days.
