Tatís hit solo homers in the third and fifth off Clayton Kershaw, and Yu Darvish pitched seven strong innings in the Padres’ second consecutive win at Chavez Ravine.

Mookie Betts doubled and scored on Max Muncy’s single in the first inning for the major league-leading Dodgers, who have lost four of five amidst a major offensive slump.
