On Opening Night, Andrew Cashner was brilliant, pitching six strong innings, while only allowing one run and striking out five. The Dodgers took an early lead on a Carl Crawford RBI (1) Single in the fifth, but that would be the first and last run the Dodgers scored. The Padres struck back when Seth Smith hit a solo home run (1) and when Chris Denorfia hit a two run single (2 RBI). Hyun-Jin Ryu pitched seven scoreless for the Dodgers.
