Corey Seager, Yasiel Puig Come Up Clutch to Beat Padres

Los Angeles Dodgers vs. San Diego Padres - 8/11/17 MLB Pick ...

Before the final game of the series against the Los Angeles Dodgers Sunday afternoon, the Padres announced they have extended manager Andy Green's contract for another three years through the 2021 season. Luis Avilan and Justin Turner made sure the lead held up. In five innings, Ryu gave up seven hits, including a home run, two walks and three runs.

With many blown chances over the first game and a half against the San Diego Padres, the game essentially lied in Corey Seager's hands as he came up to the plate, down 3-1 with the bases loaded and two outs in the bottom of the 6th inning. Kenley Jansen recorded his second save in as many nights by pitching a ideal ninth inning.

Maeda has lowered his ERA in each of his last five outings and looked sharp again on Tuesday against Arizona, allowing one run with six strikeouts over five innings.

Perdomo is looking to build on his solid outing against Cincinnati on Tuesday, when he allowed two runs over six innings in a 7-3 victory. However, Turner had another home run up his sleeve as well.
