The Dodgers took a 1-0 lead in the second inning, and Muncie hit a home run through the right sideline for the seventh in the season.
Gonsolin unbalanced Padres out of the centerfield from Jurickson Profar's double in the third inning, and in the fifth inning Grisham's home run to the second deck just inside the right-wing foul pole. I put it in. It was the 7th season of Grisham.
Snell continued 5 innings for the Padres and was 13 against Arizona Diamondbacks last season, so he abandoned one run with four hits on four walks and his best. Achieved the total of three strikeouts.
The Dodgers regained their sixth lead when Bellinger hit a right-wing home run from right-wing Craig Stammen (1-1) after Snell left. Beringer is the 11th in the season and the 3rd in the last 8 games.
Freddie Freeman added the RBI double to the Dodgers seven times off the starting lineup. Los Angeles scored two goals in the eighth inning with a sacrifice fly from Beringer and a ground out by Austin Barnes.

Padres' Manny Machado was scheduled for a day from the starting lineup the day after returning from his sprained left ankle, which cost nine games. He hit in the eighth inning as a pinch hitter.
The Dodgers, the leader of the National League West, improved 4-1 to the second-placed Padres this season, scoring 2-0 at homestands in 11 games during the season.
