SAN DIEGO (AP) — Yasmani Grandal singled in the winning run with two outs in the 12th inning and the San Diego Padres beat the NL West-leading Los Angeles Dodgers 3-2 Friday night.
Earlier in the inning, the Dodgers used a five-man infield, including a four-man shift against left-handed hitting Seth Smith.
With runners on second and third and a 1-1 count to Abraham Almonte, the Dodgers brought in center fielder Andre Ethier to play first base, with Adrian Gonzalez playing between first and second. Almonte walked.
Against a four-man shift against, Smith grounded to second baseman Dee Gordon, who forced Amarista at home.
Grandal then singled to right on a 3-2 pitch to bring in Solarte.
Amarista started the winning rally with a single to left off Kevin Correia (2-2). Yangervis Solarte walked with one out and both advanced on a wild pitch.
Tim Stauffer (5-2) pitched the 12th for the win.
