Dodgers beat Padres 5-4 after 12th-inning power outage

first_imgTied 4-4, Padres pitcher Robert Stock (0-1) walked Kemp on four pitches to begin the 12th inning. Kiké Hernandez dropped down a sacrifice bunt, sending Kemp to second base. Turner was preparing to see his first pitch from Stock when the stadium’s power supply suddenly and completely cut out.Turner had to wait patiently for his turn to bat and the most patient among the announced crowd of 53,528 – having already seen a one-run lead squandered in the ninth inning – saw their patience tested even further. It was the second power outage at Dodger Stadium this season.This time, a circuit outage on the line supplying power to the stadium was the cause, according to the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power.Once the lights were fully restored, Turner popped the first pitch he saw just inside the right-field line. It landed in between three Padres, none of whom relayed the ball back to the infield in time. Kemp scored easily from second base despite getting a poor jump on the ball.“I think (the Padres) just felt that Matt was further along than he was,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said. “If they make a play on it, it’s probably a first-and-third situation, or second-and-third. Fortunately for us they didn’t finish the play.” Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Max Muncy and Manny Machado each hit their 30th home runs of the season, but Kenley Jansen allowed a game-tying homer to Austin Hedges in the ninth inning.Kenta Maeda pitched a scoreless 10th inning. Caleb Ferguson (4-2) pitched a scoreless 11th and 12th to pick up the victory.The Dodgers remained in third place in the National League West, 2 1/2 games out of first place. The Colorado Rockies’ win over the St. Louis Cardinals, combined with the Arizona Diamondbacks’ loss to the Seattle Mariners, left Colorado and Arizona tied for first in the division.Kershaw threw eight innings, matching his longest start of the season. He allowed seven hits, including five singles, did not walk a batter and struck out nine.Machado’s three-run home run in the first inning staked Kershaw to a 3-0 lead. The Dodgers failed to tack on despite putting runners in scoring position in each of the next three innings, and leaving the bases loaded in the fourth. They finished 3-for-12 with runners in scoring position and left eight men on base.A double by Manuel Margot, followed by an RBI single by Freddy Galvis, snapped Kershaw’s shutout bid in the third inning. A solo home run by Franmil Reyes in the seventh inning brought the Padres within 3-2. Muncy’s home to right-center field – also his longest of the year at 445 feet – extended the Dodgers’ lead to 4-2 in the seventh inning.San Diego took advantage of a fielding error by Machado to get a run back in the eighth inning. With Galvis on first base and one out, Wil Myers hit a routine grounder to Machado at shortstop. Machado charged in and tried flipping the ball to Brian Dozier for a forceout at second base, but he missed his target and the ball sailed into right field.The inning continued with Galvis at third base and Myers at first. If Kershaw had not backed up third base on the play, Galvis would have scored easily when Yasiel Puig’s throw from right field missed wide of the bag.Galvis scored anyway when the next batter, Eric Hosmer, grounded out to first base. The inning ended – mercifully for the Dodgers, painfully for the Padres – when Hunter Renfroe’s 106-mph line drive hit Myers in the arm, an automatic out.“I got bailed out,” Kershaw said. “That definitely would’ve scored some runs. It’s fortunate, no other way to say it.”Because of Machado’s error, Galvis’ run was unearned and Kershaw lowered his ERA to 2.39.In the ninth inning, Jansen was called upon to preserve the 4-3 lead. It was his third appearance and his first save opportunity since returning from the disabled list Monday. Like each of the previous two outings, it did not end well.His 2-and-1 pitch to Austin Hedges, a 93-mph cut fastball, missed over the middle of the plate. Hedges connected on his 11th home run of the season, a no-doubt shot to left-center field that tied the game at 4.Jansen finished the inning but knocked a container full of gum to the dugout floor in frustration. He’s allowed a total of five runs in the last three games, losing two and blowing a save Saturday for the first time since July 6.The Dodgers’ two consecutive wins against the Padres, owners of the National League’s worst record, are nice if not necessary. But Jansen’s sudden meltdown invites a larger concern.“This has never happened before,” he said after the game.Roberts said he would try to refrain from using Jansen in Sunday’s series finale. He said he has not decided who will close instead, though he conspicuously chose to remove Maeda after one inning in order to have the right-hander available Sunday.After the Dodgers’ off-day Monday, Jansen will be the closer again for Tuesday’s game against the Texas Rangers, Roberts said. The manager conceded that a mental break might benefit the veteran closer.“Ain’t no mental break,” Jansen said. “I’m fine. I’m good. I don’t need a mental break. Me and (Roberts) already had that conversation. It was a great conversation. Just got to figure out some stuff. I think (Sunday) will be a great day to figure out my stuff, sharpen up, and be ready to go.”center_img PreviousSeveral San Diego Padres players gather in the infield during a blackout in the 12th inning of a baseball game against the Los Angeles Dodgers, Saturday, Aug. 25, 2018, in Los Angeles.
