Corey Seager, Cody Bellinger propel Los Angeles Dodgers past San Diego Padres

Corey Seager, Cody Bellinger propel Los Angeles Dodgers past San Diego Padres

Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Rich Hill was taken to the hospital as a precaution after being hit in the throat by a pitch in Friday's 4-3 loss to the San Diego Padres.

San Diego manager Andy Green would like to see more of those types of at-bats from his players. When the ball found its way to Myers at first base, Puig broke for home and Myers made an terrible throw up the 1st base line that allowed the Dodgers outfielder to dive in with the go-ahead run.

The Dodgers trailed 3-1, when Seager came to the plate with two outs and the bases loaded.

Bellinger is one shy of Mike Piazza's franchise record of 35 home runs by a rookie in a single season, and crushed his 17 home run of the year in the 7 inning or later.

Dovizioso beats Marquez to win Austrian GP
Last year's victor Andrea Iannone will start 10th on the grid after finishing nearly a second off the pace on his Suzuki. The Spaniard cleared teammate Dovizioso at Turn 1 and passed Marquez on the next straight, assuming control of the race.


"I was pleased with him", Green told the San Diego Union-Tribune after Perdomo's last start, when he allowed two runs in six innings of a 7-3 win Tuesday against the Cincinnati Reds.

Dodgers relievers Tony Watson, Brandon Morrow, Pedro Baez and Kenley Jansen each threw a shutout inning to help even the series heading into Sunday's finale.

Simultaneously, Yasiel Puig headed for home, sliding under the tag at the plate, as Seager advanced to second base and the Dodgers took a 4-3 lead.

Tony Watson (6-4) pitched a ideal sixth inning for his first win since the Dodgers acquired him from Pittsburgh at the July 31 trade deadline. He allowed one run and four hits with three strikeouts and four walks.

Neymar scores goal for PSG in opening game
Falcao scored twice before the break and once after to take his tally to four goals in two games, while Jemerson netted another. PSG grabbed a third goal in the 82nd minute as Cavani turned proivder to tee up Neymar , who fired into the roof of the net.


After working the count full, Seager delivered a single to right field that scored the tying runs of the game. Hunter Renfroe made the catch up against the stands but wasn't in good position to make a strong throw home. But Avilan, who had been on the paternity list and had not pitched in nine days, struck out Jose Pirela and got Yangervis Solarte to ground out.

San Diego has a few key hitters at their disposal.

Richard had a bad run where he gave up 19 earned over three starts, but calmed down in Pittsburgh with zero earned on five hits in 6.0 innings. Turner's throwing error from third base set up Wil Myers' sacrifice fly later in the inning.
