Dodgers take first place after 3-2 win over Padres

Stripling struck out five and scattered six hits. He operated under stress for most of the evening, but avoided major calamity. His offense stayed quiet until the seventh, when they broke through against San Diego pitcher Tyson Ross. The Dodgers did not collect a hit against Ross until the fifth inning. He departed in the seventh as Toles, Matt Kemp and Joc Pederson all hit RBI singles.
