Padres Beat Dodgers In Game 3, Most of them were dressed in brown and gold and they spent most of the night waving the gold flags they got at the gates. The 45,137 people who went to the game made it the biggest crowd at Petco Park in seven years. They were also the first people to see a postseason game in San Diego since 2006. They made the downtown ballpark loud and brown and gold. Let’s see how the Padres beat the Dodgers in the game.
Padres Beat Dodgers In Game 3
The Padres got them up and moving early and kept them on the edge of their seats for the whole National League Division Series Game 3 game. Now, everyone there on Saturday will have a chance to see the Padres move on to the NL Championship Series.
The Padres beat the Dodgers 2-1 to take a two-games-to-one lead in the best-of-five NLDS. It was a hard night for batters trying to drive in runners who were already in scoring position and it was hard to watch them try. In nine of the ten half-innings, a team had a runner in scoring position. Only two of the 14 people who ran in this way scored. Only one of them came in because of a hit.
Jake Cronenworth’s single with two outs in the first inning and Trent Grisham’s home run to start the fourth inning helped the Padres score. In the fifth inning, Mookie Betts hit a fly ball that scored a run for the Dodgers.
Max Muncy hit a double with one out and the Padres’ starting pitcher Blake Snell got a standing ovation as he left the field. Nick Martinez took over for Snell. He struck out Justin Turner and caught Chris Taylor on a dribbler in front of the mound, which he threw to first base with his bare hands. Also, Check”Antonio Brown Doubles”

When Taylor hit a ground ball, it was the 19th time in a row that the Dodgers didn’t get a hit with runners in scoring position. That had to do with their win in Game 1. Luis Garcia threw a scoreless seventh, Robert Suarez a scoreless eighth, and Josh Hader a scoreless ninth while the crowd chanted “Beat L.A.” loudly.
The Padres’ Bullpen Has Gone 13 Innings Without Giving Up A Run
In the first inning, the Dodgers left a runner at second base and the bases full. In the third inning, they scored a run but left a runner at second base. In the fifth inning, they scored a run but left a runner at second base. The Padres scored a run, but they also left runners on second and third in the first and second innings and on first and third in the third, fourth, and sixth innings.
With runners on base and a chance to score, the Padres were 1 for 10 and the Dodgers were 0 for 9. That meant that most of the loudest applause was for Snell and the other four relievers.
The crowd was much less blue than when the Dodgers came to town during the regular season. It was about to blow. This was true even before the teams were introduced, and the noise level was already high by the end of the first.
In the bottom of the first, Juan Soto’s first extra-base hit of the postseason helped the Padres get the early lead they said was so important. Soto’s 113.2 mph double to right field was also the hardest hit by a Padres player this postseason and the hardest ball hit by any Padres player.
Manny Machado walked before Josh Bell hit a pop-up to Turner at third base. This was Tony Gonsolin’s third start back from a forearm strain that kept him out for most of August and September. Soto scored and Machado moved to third when Cronenworth hit a split-finger fastball to center field on the seventh pitch he saw. Cronenworth drove in a run for the third time in four swings.

Machado walked to start the third inning, and on a fielder’s choice, Josh Bell switched places with him. Cronenworth got on base when a fly ball to left field hit shortstop Trea Turner’s glove. After that, Myers and Kim both struck out to end the inning. In the bottom of the fourth, Grisham didn’t wait for anyone to get to second base or even for a second pitch. Instead, he hit a home run to the seats in right field, making it 2-0. With two people on base and a chance to score, Bell struck out.

In the fifth, the Dodgers got their run, but things could have been a lot worse for Snell. The Dodgers’ No. 8 batter, Trayce Thompson, hit a single to right field to start the inning, and Austin Barnes’ double moved him to third. That brought up the best three players in the league at the top of the Dodgers’ lineup.
Betts quickly cut the Padres’ lead in half with a sacrifice fly to Soto in right field. Then, Snell got Trea Turner to hit a pop fly to Machado in foul territory and Freeman to hit a grounder to Machado.
