Brady Clark’s RBI double in the 17th inning finally broke a 4-4 tie, giving the Dodgers the series. Los Angeles’ bullpen allowed one hit in 10 2/3 scoreless innings in relief of Derek Lowe, who allowed four runs in 6 1/3 innings. Jeff Kent and Luis Gonzalez belted homers in the third inning.
The Padres rallied to tie it in the seventh inning on Marcus Giles’ RBI single, but that was all the offense they could muster the rest of the way. The ‘pen held the Dodgers scoreless from the fourth inning until the 17th in relief of starter David Wells, who gave up four runs on nine hits in five innings.
