(LOS ANGELES) — The Los Angeles Dodgers are red-hot to start the 2012 season. Dee Brown made sure of it with his walk-off single that gave the Dodgers a 5-4 win in the bottom of the ninth inning and major league best 9-1 start to the season.
Matt Kemp homered for the fourth time in three games and his team turned a triple play in the top of the ninth inning.
Jesus Guzman squared to bunt in the top of the ninth for the Padres (2-8), but the pitch came high and tight and hit his bat to get the elusive triple play started. Dodgers catcher A.J. Ellis picked up the batted ball and threw it to third after Jesus Guzman still failed to run to first base. By the time he got there, the triple play was completed.
Hall of Fame broadcaster Vin Scully returned to the booth after missing the last five games due to a cold on Jackie Robinson Day.
