Padres vs. Dodgers Goals: San Diego takes NLDS lead with bullpen and Trent Grisham helps dominate Los Angeles.

In the San Diego Padres’ first home playoff game with fans since 2006, the organizers thrilled the crowd as the Padres beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 2-1. The victory in Game 3 of the National League Division Series gave Padres a 2-1 lead in the best-of-five series. That means Padres is one win by eliminating the Dodgers, who won the franchise record 111 games during the regular season. Padres starting pitcher Blake Snell allowed one run in 5 1/3 innings, while the San Diego bullpen continued to score zero points. On offense, Trent Grisham hit his third home run of the 2022 postseason. The winner of this series advances to the NLCS to face the winner of the Philadelphia Phillies-Atlanta Braves NLDS. Now, for a takeaway in Game 3. Tony Gonsolin couldn’t give the Dodgers much. A forearm injury meant Gonsolin missed more than a month under the stretch and was ready for a short start against the Rockies on October 3. Came back on time. In Game 3 on Friday night, he wasn’t himself. Command was severely lacking and Gonsolin’s fastball speed dropped by a tick or so. He endured the first inning of 31 pitches and Dave Roberts was impressed with Andrew Heaney warming up in the first frame. Things could have been worse in the second game, but Gonsolin was partially averted by a misplaced Jurickson Profar bunt attempt. Roberts planned around 75 pitches for Gonsolin in Game 3, but managed to get 42 pitches and 1 1/3 innings. During that time, he allowed one run on four hits, along with one strikeout and one walk. In the first two games of the series, the Dodgers threw eight relief looks and eight relief innings. Despite a day off before Game 3 and a first-round bye, the LA Penns have been accumulating miles in recent days. The trend continued on Friday. Padres’ bullpen was ugly. In the first two games of the series, the San Diego bullpen recorded 9 1/3 IP, 4 H, 0 R, 9 SO, 4 BB. Then, in an important third game, the same pen was tasked with protecting a one-point lead during 11 outs. Once again, the San Diego Relief has taken on a challenge against one of MLB’s best offenses. Updated numbers for NLDS now: 13 IP, 5 H, 0 R, 15 SO, 4 BB. Trent Grisham continued the postseason fireworks. Pads center fielder and eighth hitter Trent Grisham endured the regular season quite hard at bat, but he did a terrific wild card series against the Mets, hitting homers twice in three games. Over the first two games of the NLDS against the Dodgers, Grisham didn’t do much, but rediscovered a first-round power strike in the fourth inning of Game 3. feet. With his third home run (only six games) of the 2022 postseason, Grisham joined an elite franchise company. At least two more games to tie or break Jim Leyritz’s record. Most importantly, Padres wouldn’t be where they are today without Grisham’s October power surge. The Dodgers struggled again with the runners in the scoring position. On Friday night, the Dodgers came out empty at RISP for their second straight streak. In game 3, they went 0 to 9 with RISP, which means they are now 0 to the last 19 at that point. The Dodgers have a few just-in-time hits that are very different from this series. History favors Padres. Naturally, Padres is in a good position in the best-of-five series. In the history of the best-of-five league division series, one team leads 2-1 in 67 series, of which 49 teams lead 2-1 to win the series. In other words, of the teams that lost 2-1 in the LDS, only 26.9% returned to win the LDS. Tyler Anderson heads for LA against Joe Musgrove and his first pitch is scheduled for 09:07 pm ET at Petco Park in San Diego.
