San Diego, CA- Hyun-jin Ryu and the Los Angeles Dodgers shutout the San Diego Padres 1-0 for the second straight day to head into the All Star Break on a pathetic note. The Padres now head into the all-star break not having scored in the last 21 innings.

The Padres wasted another excellent start by all-star Tyson Ross, as he allowed only one run on six hits with eight strikeouts in seven innings of work. With the loss Ross falls to (7-10) on the season and also lowers his ERA to 2.85.
Hyun-jin Ryu dominated for the Dodgers allowing no runs on two hits and ten strikeouts in six innings of work.
Dee Gordon scored the only run of the game in the bottom of the 6th, as he scored on an RBI single by Yasiel Puig to give the Dodgers a 1-0 lead.
The San Diego Padres would threaten in the top of the seventh as the Padres had the tying run in scoring position with two outs, but would be unable to capitalize as Brooks Conrad lined out to left to end the threat.
Friars on Base
The San Diego Padres would threaten once again in the top of the 9th, with the tying run on 3rd with only out. Unfortunately as the San Diego Padres have done so often this season, they were unable to capitalize as Jake Goebbert and the Padres best hitter Seth Smith struck out to seal the win for the Dodgers.
As we’ve mentioned so many times this season, if the Padres could just be decent on offense to support their National League leading pitching staff then maybe we’ll have an interesting second half.
If not then Padre fans prepare yourself for another 60 plus games of painful baseball.
