Padres will play Game 2 against the Dodgers after home runs by Manny Machado and Jake Cronenworth.

Clutch pitching and timely hitting came with the help of the San Diego Padres. The San Diego Padres tied the NLDS Series 5-3 against the Los Angeles Dodgers on Wednesday night. Long balls were the subject of the game early on, but eventually Padres got the biggest advantage. Their team and potential National League MVP Manny Machado beat Dodgers legend Clayton Kershaw 1-0 to put them on the board with a line shot just inside a left field foul pole. After two Dodgers threatened to regain the lead late in the game, Jake Cronenworth fired a spectacular shot from Blake Treinen from right field to make Padres 5-3, providing adequate cushioning.

That’s because the expected pitching duel between Kershaw and Darbityu actually didn’t go the way some might have thought. This resulted in a 1-1 game at the end of the first inning.

The Dodgers immediately tied the situation together as the Dodgers once again relaxed their muscles after hitting a home run the night before. But what differentiated Padres with all these home runs early on, however, came down to clutch pitching late in the game. Right-hander Robert Suarez did his best to help the team take the lead and win under the belt on the bus to San Diego. Padres took the lead 4-3 at the top of the sixth goal. The Dodgers quickly found a runner in the lower frame. Will Smith and Muncy both hit, leaving runners in corners with no one out. Given the Dodgers’ potential on the plate, the tie game looked like a sigh of relief for San Diego.

The Dodgers’ FREDDIE FREEMAN battled against Padres before the NLDS game. At the bottom of the 7th, Suarez got into trouble with a second and third base runner and one out. However, he didn’t decide on his goal, keeping the 4-3 lead intact. Turner would ground, and after deliberately walking Freddie Freeman, he had Smith line out to finish the inning.

Brusdar Graterol gave up the lead from the lead in the bottom of the 7th and grabbed it bare-handed in a squeeze play and threw it home quickly, nailing Wil Myers’ attempt to score. The next hitter was Trent Grisham, who hit the ball all the way to center field, but Cody Bellinger kept track of it and made a great jump catch. But in the end, Padres’ bullpen didn’t have to go through such a tough moment. Nick Martinez got his first two outs in the bottom of the eighth before Josh Hader was put into a four-out save opportunity for the first time since 2020. And he did just that. ninth.
