Final score: Padres 2, Dodgers 1. Cal Quantrill the winner (2-0), Dustin May the loser (1-1). Los Angeles hitters left six men on base and went 1-8 with runners in scoring position.

With the Rockies losing, the Dodgers blow a chance to move into first place.

Orel, listen up. Scott Alexander has Type 1 diabetes. It's an autoimmune disease. He has to take insulin in order to survive. Your comment that he is "Watching his food" is off base - that's advice for someone with Type 2 diabetes. You missed the point. Get your facts straight, please.

Dodgers had their best home record ever in LA last year, they have looked flat at home without the best fans in baseball

He stands straight to bat. That's one wide strike area.

Honestly, the Dodgers record is miraculous considering how many starters are hitting below .200

Looks like Roberts is going to pull May out of principle, which is a shame.

It’s gonna be interesting to see if Roberts let May pitch as long as he can, or just pull him out of principle.

Aren’t they supposed to have a genius hitting coach? I wonder what he’s doing with Bellinger.
