This catch pretty much sums up the game and the homestand for the Dodgers.
The Dodgers managed 10 hits in less than five innings against Clayton Richard but all of them were singles and they settled for three runs, single tallies in the second, third and fifth innings.
The Dodgers scored more than one run in just three of their 69 innings on the homestand, and never more than two an any frame. The result was 20 runs scored and four losses in seven games.
The best chance at an extra-base hit came in the seventh inning when Matt Kemp hit a ball to the deepest part of the park in center field. But Cameron Maybin made a smooth leaping catch, robbing Kemp of at least a double. At first glance it looked like a would-be two-run home run but upon replay it appeared the ball might not have gone out. Ethier way, the catch preserved a 4-3 San Diego lead and left the Dodgers frustrated.
Aaron Harang allowed three runs in the first inning and somehow managed to not allow anything else despite letting 10 on base in his five innings.
After winning their first four home games against San Diego this season, the Dodgers dropped four of their last five games at Dodger Stadium against the Padres. After starting the season 21-5 at home, the Dodgers are 17-28 in their last 45 games at Dodger Stadium.
