MLB: summary of Thursday’s games in the National, including that between the Dodgers and the Padres

The day after a match that ended in 16e round between the Dodgers and the Padres, Max Scherzer made sure that both teams got home much faster after the game. The former Nationals put 10 batters in the mitt to help the Dodgers post a 4-0 victory Thursday night at Petco Park in San Diego.

Scherzer has been on the mound for seven and two-thirds innings allowing just two hits and a walk for the Padres hitters. Only Trent Grisham and Victor Caratini were able to hit hits against the pitcher ace.

On offense, the Dodgers were propelled by an Austin Barnes two-run homer in the third inning. Corey Seager added his lead before the end of the set with a double that pushed Trea Turner to the plate. Cody Bellinger produced the last point of the game in the next set with a sacrifice ball that allowed AJ Pollock to score.

Reds avoid sweeping thanks to India

Jonathan India hit a three-run homer and the Cincinnati Reds ended a trip to Milwaukee on a high note on Thursday, winning 5-1 over the Brewers.

The Reds thus avoided a sweep.

India’s 17th home came in fifth, after singles from Eugenio Suarez and Tyler Naquin.

Nick Castellanos slammed a 24th circuit for the Reds, who want to keep their gains for the post-season.

Right now, the playoff game would pit the Reds against the Dodgers in Los Angeles.

Castellanos got a second cannon shot in two days.

Torontonian Joey Votto hit a sacrifice ball, producing his first point in five games.

Sonny Gray (6-6) gave just three singles in six innings, striking out six batters.

Gray hasn’t allowed a run in his last 13 innings.

The 31-year-old right-hander is 4-0 since July 30.

“A great start that comes at a great time,” said manager David Bell.

“Their pitchers did very well and there was the big home run. The Reds are a good club, ”was the point of view of his opposite, Craig Counsell.

Cincinnati opens a three-game series in Miami on Friday.

Luis Urias hit a long shot in a losing cause.

Rowdy Tellez had a 0 for 4 game, including being put out on a grounded with goals filled in the sixth. That ended the round.

Brett Anderson (4-8) allowed three runs and four hits in four innings.

Ruf breaks the tie for the Mets

Alternate hitter Darin Ruf broke the tie in the eighth inning with a single run, and the San Francisco Giants beat the New York Mets 3-2 on Thursday night.

Kris Bryant slammed a two-run homer to help the Giants sweep the honors in this three-game series.

Pete Alonso hit a long two-run left field, but the Mets still finished an important streak against the Giants and Los Angeles Dodgers, the two-top Majors, at 2-11.

These failures of the Mets dragged the New York formation

seven and a half games against the Atlanta Braves and first place in the East section of the National.

Now in third place, the Mets will play 15 straight games against the Washington Nationals and Miami Marlins, the two worst teams in the Eastern Division.

Bryant hit his home run in the first inning against Carlos Carrasco. It was his 24th long ball of the campaign and a sixth with the Giants, who acquired it from the Chicago Cubs before the trade deadline.

Alonso tied the game in the sixth inning with a four-goal stroke that knocked out starter Alex Wood out of the game.

Mike Yastrzemski slammed a single over Seth Lugo (3-2) to start the eighth inning and Curt Casali was hit with a shot. Ruf slipped the ball through the right side to give the Giants a 3-2 lead.

Casali, who starts the games as a receiver in Buster Posey’s absence, was replaced on the trails by Chadwick Tromp due to dizziness. He had been hit in the mask by a false bullet earlier in the game.

Reliever Jarlin Garcia (5-3) didn’t give up a run in one and two-thirds inning and José Alvarez put out substitute hitter Jeff McNeil on a grounded as the pads were all occupied at the end of the eighth inning.

Tyler Rogers had three quick outs in the ninth inning to register a 12th save this season.

Carrasco allowed two runs and three hits in seven innings of work. It was his longest start of the season and possibly his best in the Mets uniform, after missing several games with a hamstring injury.
