Los Angeles Dodgers
San Diego Padres
Zack Greinke allowed one run over seven innings, Yasiel Puig homered in the sixth and the Los Angeles Dodgers beat the San Diego Padres 2-1 on Sunday to complete a three-game sweep.
The NL West leaders earned their 10th sweep of the season and first against San Diego. They extended their roll from August, when the Dodgers went 23-6 for their most wins in a month since moving to Los Angeles in 1958.
Greinke (14-3) won his sixth straight start for the first time since winning nine in a row over the 2008-09 seasons. The right-hander gave up two hits, struck out seven and walked two. Greinke, who came in batting .340, also singled with two outs in the fifth.
Puig hit his 14th homer into the left-field pavilion on the first pitch he saw from Dale Thayer (2-5) with one out in the sixth, giving the Dodgers a 2-1 lead. The sellout crowd of 52,168 cheered the 22-year-old Cuban defector on Cuban Heritage Day.
Kenley Jansen retired the side in the ninth, including two strikeouts, for his 2...

It is baffling that folks still think it is a smart idea to test Yasiel Puig’s arm. The latest victim of the Puig cannon was Rene Rivera who tried to score on an Andrew Cashner’s single. The result was what you would expect it to be.

I’ll be honest, I’m slacking. I’ve been watching college football all day. There wasn’t a lot of baseball on.

I am stealing a segment from Real Time with Bill Maher – New Rule: no more running on Yasiel Puig.
So Saturday night San Diego Padres pitcher Andrew Cashner hit a single to right field which made Rene Rivera commit to running to home plate from second base. Keep in mind that there were already two outs with the Padres up 1-0 so maybe it could be argued that Rivera should have stayed...
