Jon Jay goes 4 for 4 in 12-5 Padres win over Dodgers
GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) Jon Jay went 4 for 4, including an RBI single, to help the San Diego Padres to a 12-5 win over the split-squad Dodgers on Sunday.
The Dodgers were without scheduled starter Mike Bolsinger, who was scratched during pre-game warm-ups because of tightness on the left side of his abdomen.
Jay, the Padres likely lead-off hitter, opened the game with a single off Jeremy Kehrt, a career minor leaguer who was rushed onto the mound to start for the ailing Bolsinger.
After getting two hits in a scoreless first, the Padres erupted for six runs in the second on seven hits, including a Jay single to center that scored Melvin Upton Jr.
