SAN DIEGO (AP) — San Diego rookie Jake Cronenworth singled home the go-ahead run in the sixth inning for the Padres, who hit three solo home runs off Walker Buehler and beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 5-4.

Cronenworth’s hit gave ace Chris Paddack his first career win against the Dodgers.

Cronenworth also made several nice plays at first base, where he made his fifth start. First baseman Eric Hosmer is on the injured list with a stomach ailment.

Paddack allowed three runs and five hits in six innings, struck out five and walked none. Trent Grisham, Wil Myers and Fernando Tatis Jr. homered off Dodgers starter Walker Buehler.
