The Dodgers finally got out of the rut after beating division rivals the San Diego Padres 12-1 last night.
Mookie Betts led by three in the first inning and a three-run homer in the fourth. Overall, the Dodgers’ offense looks like the one we’re used to seeing.
Julio Urias trades as usual, earning his 15th win of the season. Urias allowed only two hits in the process, six strong innings, 1 ER, and 2 K.
Everything went well last night, and the OC Register’s Bill Plunkett said the Betts credited the victory to some shut-eye.

But somehow you just have to get some willpower and get through, and we didn’t. Luckily we came out today , Julio pitched well, we played well.”
