SAN DIEGO ( Associated Press) — Mookie Bates scored two home runs and Max Muncie scored a home and three RBIs as the Los Angeles Dodgers beat the San Diego Padres for the 10th straight time, 6-1 on Friday night.
The Dodgers led the Padres 57–23 in the winning streak that began on August 24.
Julio Urias (1-1) combined with five relievers on the four-hitter. Uriyas held the Padres to one run and two hits in five innings, hit a six and scored three runs.
Bates and Muncie thrilled several thousand Dodgers fans to a crowd of 44,482 at Petco Park while at home in the fifth inning. Bates also took the lead in ninth place, his second this season and his 20th career multi-homer game.
Bates tied the game at 1 with an impressive 420-foot shot to go fifth in the second deck in left field. Muncie gave the Dodgers the lead with a moonlight that cleared the wall into right field with two outsiders. This was his second.
Muncie’s homer chased Nick Martinez (0–2), who allowed two runs and four hits in 4 2/3 innings, scored five runs and scored four runs. Martinez went on loaded bases with one in the third and then fielded Justin Turner in a double play.
Muncie hit a two-run, base-loaded single in the seventh and Tree Turner followed with a sacrificial fly.
Dodgers: RHP Blake Trainen, their setup man with a right shoulder problem, was placed on a 10-day injured list. The move was retroactive to Tuesday, meaning he would be eligible to return on April 29.
LHP Tyler Anderson (1-0, 2.25) will make his debut for the Dodgers on Saturday in place of LHP Andrew Heaney, who is on the injured list with a left shoulder trouble. The Padres will take on RHP U Darvish (1-1, 6.28).
