Ramon Hernandez put the Padres on the scoreboard in the second with a three run homer, his first of the young season. Odalis Perez was animated as soon as the bat hit the ball – knowing the ball was out of the park.
In the third, Mark Loretta led off with a double and scored when Phil Nevin doubled to left-center.
The Dodgers got to Jake Peavy in the sixth. A bunt base hit by Dave Roberts started it off. He stole second and Cesar Izturis singled, sending Roberts to third. Peavy was then called for a balk which scored the first run. Milton Bradley then singled in Izturis, chasing Peavy. Eddie Oropesa came in to get Sean Green out. Scott Linebrink came on to face Paul Lo Duca, but his help wasn't needed. Ramon Hernandez wiped out Bradley by throwing him out at second base to end the inning.
Antonio Osuna, pitching the seventh, could not hold the two run lead. Osuna gave up a single to Lo Duca and a homer to Adrian Beltre, tying the score at four.
Notes: Jake Peavy went 2-1 with a 2.45 ERA (6 ER/22 IP) in four 2003 starts against Los Angeles. In his first full season in the Majors, he led the Padres in wins (12) and strikeouts (165), allowing two earned runs or less in 15 of his 32 starts. He also allowed three runs or less in eight of his nine no-decisions.
