POST-GAME BRIEFING

While the pitching held for the Dodgers, the offense was a different story. The Dodgers went 1-for-8 with runners in scoring in position during tonight’s game. They had plenty of opportunities to score runs, but couldn’t capitalize. Pitching was strong on both sides: the Dodgers held the Padres to two runs thanks to a strong start from Dustin May and spectacular defensive plays. For the Padres, it was mostly a bullpen game; they used six different pitchers to hold the Dodgers to just one run.
