Yasiel Puig homered early, and the Dodgers bullpen came through late to make a winner out of Zack Greinke in his 2014 debut, a 3-2 victory over the Padres at Petco Park in San Diego. Greinke allowed two runs on two hits and two walks in his five innings in his first start of the season, with five strikeouts. He threw 94 pitches. The Dodgers jumped on Ian Kennedy early, with a Carl Crawford single to right field followed by Puig's home run off the Western Metal Supply Co. building for a two-run lead just two batters into the game. Puig's first home run of the season traveled an estimated 410 feet. The Dodgers have scored first in all four games this season. Juan Uribe helped tack on another run with a two-out double to center in the fourth inning and advanced to third thanks to this throw from second baseman Jedd Gyorko.
