Dodgers 7, Padres 2

Don’t look now, but the Dodgers have won three out of four — and they have scored seven runs twice in their past three games. Russell Martin had a big night, but as usual, he is also having a big year. He went 3 for 5 with three RBI and three runs scored, and he is hitting .321. His power numbers are off slightly from last year, but in this lineup, whose power numbers aren’t off? Dodgers go to 31-33 and remain 3 1/2 behind the Snakes, who won at New York. … I tried to post a Petco photo earlier tonight, but it didn’t work. Going to give it another shot tomorrow, with the help of the head techster back at the office, who is going to coax me through it over the phone.
