Padres Dominate Dodgers in Series Win

Yu Darvish was dominant on the mound, leading the San Diego Padres to a 4-0 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Sunday. The win capped off a successful series for the Padres, who took five of the eight games against their rivals this season.

Darvish allowed just two hits in seven innings, striking out seven and walking one. He lowered his ERA to 2.43 and extended his scoreless innings streak to 18, tying a career high.

"The plan was to kind of see how they reacted to the pitches," Darvish said. "The fastball was coming out of the hand right, it was working nicely. Obviously they are a very good team, but to be able to take the series against them, for sure it is going to give us some confidence moving forward."

Fernando Tatis Jr., Jake Cronenworth, and Xander Bogaerts all homered for the Padres, who have now won four consecutive series.

"It means that we can play good baseball at the highest level," Tatis said. "This series was as clean as possible for us."

Dodgers starter Walker Buehler had a rough outing in his second start of the season, giving up two runs, five hits, and two walks in just 3 1/3 innings. He surrendered back-to-back homers to Tatis and Cronenworth in the first inning.

"I'm not going to put much stock in two outings," Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said. "I think getting him back here, back in competition mode is a good thing and I think the stuff is good. My confidence and belief in him hasn't wavered at all."

The Dodgers dropped two of the three games in the series after a seven-game winning streak.

"They've been really unpredictable," Roberts said. "Part of it is attacking some of our hitters' weaknesses, going to their strengths. But I really think that they've just mixed and matched well and they've executed. Obviously they get up to play us, and they've played well."

The Padres drew a record crowd for a three-game series at Petco Park, with 133,970 fans attending over the weekend.

"Unbelievable," Padres manager Mike Shildt said. "This place is special. This is a baseball town.
