The road hasn’t been friendly for left-hander Eric Stults, but he made himself at home Wednesday night at Dodger Stadium. Stults and three relievers combined on a six-hitter, and the San Diego Padres beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 4-1. San Diego (59-66) defeated Los Angeles (71-57) for only the fourth time in the past 12 meetings and just the second time in the past eight contests. Stults is now 2-9 in 15 road starts this season.

The Dodgers already have placed five pitchers on the disabled list this month and plugged two holes in their rotation with trades for veterans Roberto Hernandez and Kevin Correia. Now they will try to avoid another problem by pushing right-hander Zack Greinke’s next scheduled start back two days. Greinke has been dealing with elbow discomfort for “the last month or so” and will not make his scheduled start Thursday against the San Diego Padres. Left-hander Clayton Kershaw will take Greinke’s start on Thursday on regular rest thanks to a day off Monday.

San Diego Padres outfielder Cameron Maybin was reinstated from the restricted list on Wednesday after testing positive for an amphetamine. Maybin had said he used the substance to treat his attention deficit disorder, for which he previously had a therapeutic use exemption granted. ”We talked quite a bit before the suspension and he went through a lot of pain,” Padres manager Bud Black said. ”He had some feelings on this, as far as how it relates to him coming back on the team.” At the time of his suspension, Maybin was hitting .247, with one home run and nine RBIs in 62 games.

After being swept by the Milwaukee Brewers over the weekend, the San Diego Padres were a welcomed sight for the Los Angeles Dodgers. Carl Crawford homered and drove in three runs, and the Dodgers rallied from a three-run deficit to defeat the San Diego Padres 8-6 at Dodger Stadium on Tuesday night. Crawford, who went 3-for-3, scored three runs and stole a base, drilled a two-run shot off Padres reliever Alex Torres in the seventh inning to help the Dodgers (71-56) end a three-game slide. The Padres (58-66) lost for the eighth time in their past 11 meetings, including six of their last seven with Los Angeles.

In a clash featuring the National League’s two best teams, the Milwaukee Brewers dominated the Los Angeles Dodgers in impressive fashion. Catcher Jonathan Lucroy homered and drove in five runs, leading the Brewers to a sweep of the Dodgers with a 7-2 victory Sunday at Dodger Stadium. “We played a really good series against a good team and we did a lot of things right in this series,” Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said, attempting to downplay any significance in winning the series and 12 of the past 16 at Dodger Stadium. Center fielder Carlos Gomez hit his 20th home run as the Brewers (70-55) handed the Dodgers their first three-game sweep of the season.

Carlos Torres is easily lost amid the young arms and big names on the New York Mets pitching staff. Torres, thrust into an emergency start Monday because scheduled starter Bartolo Colon went home to the Dominican Republic to be with his critically ill mother, threw five shutout innings but didn’t factor into the decision as the Mets fell to the Chicago Cubs, 4-1, at Citi Field. That Torres threw five shutout innings on almost no notice — he didn’t find out he was starting until he arrived at the ballpark — is impressive enough. He is the first major leaguer to throw at least five shutout innings on no days rest since Bruce Ruffin tossed eight shutout innings for the Philadelphia Phillies on June 21, 1991.

  Major League Baseball players frequently make great catches. Sometimes, they even make great catches with their bare hands . But have you ever seen a ballplayer make a great barehanded catch while also operating a heavy TV camera that costs thousands of dollars? A man who Fox Sports broadcasters called Jim Foley made such a play while filming an at-bat by Peter Bourjos of the St. Louis Cardinals on Sunday afternoon. Bourjos, stepping in against right-hander Blaine Boyer of the San Diego Padres in the bottom of the eighth inning, fouled off a 90 mph fastball to the right side. Foley, atop a platform behind the last row of seats in the lower bowl at Busch Stadium, kept his face focused on his viewfinder and reached out with his left hand to snag the ball. It was a great show of skill for amateur photographers who struggle to “get the shot” and still “live in the moment.” Foley appeared to do both. That’s why he’s a pro, folks!
