Padres 2, Dodgers 1: Upton funks up Greinke

Ian Kennedy put the Padres in position to win, and Justin Upton made it happen. After a tough loss last night, the Padres bounced back to beat Zack Greinke.

Will Venable got the Padres off to a solid start by doubling off Greinke with one out in the first. Greinke got Upton to ground out, but ran into trouble with Matt Kemp.

(Turner had moved from first to third after Adrian Gonzalez, who had GIDP'd with rancho ardiendo in the...

Offensively, the Reds are anchored by third baseman Todd Frazier and first baseman Joey Votto. The two sluggers have combined for 26 home runs, with Frazier ranking 4th in the league at 16. The Padres are bringing some lumber of their own, with Justin Upton and his 12 home runs and the newly returned...
