Dodgers can't decode the puzzle that is Padres lefty Eric Lauer in 4-1 loss

The Dodgers had faced Lauer on May 6 in Monterrey, Mexico, near the end of a hellish, 10-day road trip. Lauer blanked the Dodgers for six innings. In his next 11 starts, he pitched to a 4.58 earned-run average. He allowed opposing hitters to post an .899 on-base plus slugging percentage in those games.
