MLB: San Diego Padres at Los Angeles Dodgers Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

LOS ANGELES — The Dodgers spotted the Padres an early lead but then in a flash, the Dodgers scored five runs and then went on to win 6-4. The win continued the Dodgers unbeaten streak in series played. They have now won 16 out of the last 19 series. They tied the other three series.

Kenta Maeda got the win to go 11-4 and Kenley Jansen picked up his 32nd save.

Maeda also got good relief work from Josh Fields, Pedro Beez and Luis Avilan.

Trailing 2-0 in the fourth inning, Luis Perdomo had retired the first nine Dodgers in a row. But then he hit Chris Taylor. with a pitch.

Corey Seager followed with a single to center. Justin Turner came up and hit a three-run homer to give the Dodgers the lead.

Then with one out and Cody Bellinger on, Yasmani Grandal hit the second home run of the inning to extend the lead.

Kenta Maeda would have done really well had Cory Spangenberg not been in the lineup. Instead, Spangenberg homered twice off Maeda. The first time was a solo home run in the first and then he hit a two-run shot in the sixth to make it a one-run game.

Leading by one in the eighth, Justin Turner hit his second home of the game to give the Dodgers a little insurance.

Up next

After an off-day, the Chicago White Sox will come to Dodger Stadium to play a two-game series. Alex Wood will bring his 14-1 record to the mound and he will face Miguel González. First pitch is scheduled at 7:10 p.m.
