Dodgers 10, Padres 2: Hey, no shutout!

The return of Pederson was initially supposed to spell the demise of Cody Bellinger's time with the Dodgers major league roster, but he will instead take over as the everyday first baseman in Gonzalez's absence.

Kenta Maeda and five relievers combined on a four-hitter for the Dodgers. Toles failed on the bunt attempt, worked the count full and ripped a two-run double into the right-center field gap that opened the door for the Dodgers to beat the San Diego Padres, 8-2, on Friday night at Petco Park. The Los Angeles Dodgers offense is on fire right now, and they've won eight straight games when scoring more than three runs.

Sergio Romo (1-1) got two outs in the sixth and collected the win, his first as a Dodger.

Dodgers outfielder left Saturday night's game against the Padres with hip tightness, the team announced during the game. Romo came on to walk Austin Hedges before striking out Hunter Renfroe and getting Erick Aybar to line out to third. Josh Fields posted his first save after throwing 1 1/3 innings. Yangervis Solarte walked and Ryan Schimpf hit an RBI single to right.

The Padres grabbed the lead with an unearned run in the fifth on Manuel Margot's sacrifice fly. The 21-year-old Bellinger has already obliterated Triple-A pitching to the tune of.343 with 5 home runs and 15 RBIs to go along with 7 stolen bases through his first 18 games. Puig trotted home with a run when Taylor bounced a ground ball off of third base for a hit. Justin Turner led off with a single, and Clayton Richard issued Gutierrez one of the six walks he allowed in his five frames. He allowed two runs, one earned, and three hits. He is on the disabled list for the second time this season with a blister on his left middle finger. Gonzalez had played 1,774 games without a DL trip, the most among active players.

Yes, it's a good thing the Dodgers kept Bellinger in the bigs after activating Joc Pederson from the disabled list. After being checked by the trainer and manager Andy Green, Sanchez was replaced by Hedges. You may recall it was Kershaw who got 14 runs in an Opening Day blowout at Dodger Stadium. McCarthy is now scheduled to start Sunday.
