Betts, Outman Homer as Dodgers Stun Padres 5-2

on Tuesday night. The Dodgers come from behind to beat the Padres 5-2 in extra innings. Mookie Betts hit a game-tying homer in the 9th, and James Outman hit a two-run shot in the 10th.

SAN DIEGO, Calif. (AP) - Mookie Betts' game-tying shot with two outs during the ninth inning was followed by a James Outman two-run homer in the 10th inning to give the Los Angeles Dodgers a 5-2 victory over the San Diego Padres.

The Dodgers defeated the Padres in the NL Division Series by two games to one.

After the Padres led 2-1, San Diego reliever Josh Hader recorded two outs until Betts hit a home run over the left center field fence.

Michael Busch's run in the 10th was the winning one, beating Outman's shot.

Caleb Ferguson, a Dodgers relief pitcher (2-0), earned the victory and Evan Phillips scored his fifth save in a scoreless tenth inning. Brent Honeywell, who pitched for San Diego in the 10th inning (2-1), took the loss.

The Padres had Manny Machado with three hits and one RBI. Fernando Tatis Jr. made a sliding catch and had a double in the second inning, denying Max Muncy a hit.

Joe Musgrove, Padres' starter, was more sharp in his third start than his first two. He struck out five and gave up just one run in five innings.

Will Smith's double drove in Freddie Freeman in the sixth inning. Freeman had reached second after a San Diego left-fielder Juan Soto made a two base error.

Tim Hill and Steven Wilson, relievers for the Padres, combined to get three outs without allowing the Dodgers to tie the game.

In the first inning, the Padres took advantage of Dodgers' starter Julio Urias. Tatis and Machado each hit consecutive doubles, giving San Diego the 1-0 advantage. Betts' glove was able to catch a ball that Xander Boaerts hit against the right-field wall, but he couldn't haul it in.

The Padres last regular-season home series win against the Dodgers was in 2021, when they won three games over the Dodgers from June 21 to 23. San Diego has since lost four consecutive series against Los Angeles. Since August 24, 2021 the Padres are 6-25 against the Dodgers in the regular season.

UP NEXT Dodgers : RHP Tony Gonsolin (0-0, 3.38) will take the hill on Monday to begin a three game series against the Milwaukee Brewers.
