Padres beat Dodgers 6-3 after Profar's 7th-inning 3-run double.

Los Angeles — The San Diego Padres won two of three in their weekend series against the Los Angeles Dodgers 6-3 on Sunday as Jurickson Profar's three-run double broke a seventh-inning tie and Jackson Merrill had three hits.

The Padres won two straight series at Dodger Stadium for the first time since 2013 after Profar's bases-loaded drive off the center-field wall against J.P. Feyereisen (0-1). Profar remarked, “We have a great team and they have a really good team over there. "To come in here and take two out of three is a message."  

Profar blasted a home run following a heated argument with Dodgers catcher Will Smith at home plate in the fifth inning Saturday. Two spoke after Gavin Stone threw an inside pitch. No blows were thrown as both benches cleared. Profar's sixth double of the season tied for the majors lead among left fielders  

A glue person for us. Manager Mike Shildt said Profar has 10 years in the majors. “His three-run double tonight was nice. But beyond that, Profar is a pro and a key part of the Padres.” With 14 walks from five Dodgers pitchers, the Padres had their most in a nine-inning game. Ha-Seong Kim walked in his first four plate appearances while Xander Bogaerts drew three.  

No Dodger pitcher has more walks since 1962's 16 against the Mets. In five-plus innings, Los Angeles starter James Paxton walked eight, the most since Matt Magill gave away nine free passes against Colorado in 2013.  

“It’s very alarming to watch the number of walks we had tonight,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said. “Every inning, you're trying to thread a needle and play perfect baseball, make a perfect pitch, or hit the ball at the right person in the right spot without hitting outfield grass. The game of fire is unplayable.”  

Dodgers have lost three of four after Max Muncy launched a two-run homer in the fourth. Yuki Matsui (2-0) won with 1 1/3 innings of hitless relief and Robert Suarez saved his sixth. The Dodgers scored three runs in the home half after Manny Machado hit a single homer in the fourth.  

Freddie Freeman doubled and scored on Smith's base hit. Muncy hit Yu Darvish's fastball into right-field seats. Muncy hit his fourth homer of the season and third in four games. San Diego tied at 3 in the sixth. Three walks opened the inning, but Luis Campusano grounded into a double play to score one. The Padres tied after Merrill's infield single. Despite an unusual second straight night of weather delays at Dodger Stadium, the game started after 36 minutes.
