Guerrero continued to swing a hot bat as he led off the fifth with a solo home run to left, cutting the Dodgers deficit to 2-1. Baker sat the Padres down in order in the bottom half of the fifth, striking out two.

Morrow followed suit by throwing a scoreless sixth inning. He gave up a lead off single to Ethier, but that was quickly erased on a 4-6-3 double play ball off the bat of Gonzalez. Grandal the popped up to end the inning.

The Padres failed to have a runner reach base in the bottom of the sixth, which included Upton striking out for the third time of the game. After the Dodgers were retired in order in the seventh, Norris hurt Baker again, this time hitting a one-out solo home run in bottom half of the inning.

Baker managed to get the next two outs to become just the third Dodgers pitcher to throw seven innings in one start (joining Zack Greinke and Brandon McCarthy). Joaquin Benoit took over for the Padres in the eighth and nearly gave up a solo home run to Pederson but Wil Myers made the catch at the warning track in center field.

Carlos Frias made his first appearance with the Dodgers this season and allowed nothing more than a one-out single in the bottom of the eighth. Trailing 3-1 in the ninth, the Dodgers failed to mount a comeback against Craig Kimbrel in the ninth and settled for a series win and not a three-game sweep.

The Dodgers finished 2-4 on their six-game road trip.
