In a game marred by a brawl and possible injury to Zack Greinke, the Dodgers got a boost when their home run leader hit a home run in the eighth inning to give Los Angeles a 3-2 win over the Padres at Petco Park Thursday night in San Diego.
The Dodgers are 14-7 at Petco Park since the beginning of 2011 and have not lost a series in San Diego during that span. All-time, the Dodgers are now 42-42 in Petco Park.
- Greinke's walk to Jedd Gyorko in the fourth inning was his first free pass issued this season, to his 35th batter faced.
- Adrian Gonzalez hit a two-run homer in the first inning, extending his hitting streak against his former club to 12 games. Gonzalez is hitting .442 (23-for-52) against San Diego.
- Andre Ethier went 1-for-4 to extend his hitting streak to 11 games, dating back to last season.
- A.J. Ellis was 3-for-4 with a walk on Thursday night.
- Nick Hundley, the Padres 29-year-old catcher who batted .157/.219/.245 in 225 plate appearances and was 1-for-17 against the Dodgers in 2012, was 2-for-4 with a double Thursday night and had himself quite a series. In the three games Hundley was 7-for-11 with a home run and two doubles.
- Greinke's ground out to end the third inning dropped the Dodgers to 0-for-12 with the bases loaded on the season.
