With the Dodgers’ beleaguered bullpen providing seven scoreless innings of relief, the offense started the winning rally in the 12th after
Gonzalez sent a soft liner to center to drive in Callaspo and Hernandez.
Kenley Jansen pitched the bottom of the 12th to earn his ninth save and top a strong day for the bullpen. Six different relievers --
Nicasio got a big assist from Pederson. The Padres thought they’d won the game in the bottom of the ninth when they had two on and two outs for Dodger-killer
Upton jumped on a 95-mph fastball from Nicasio and drilled it to deep center. The outfield was playing shallow, but Pederson made a sprinting catch just before crashing into the wall. It was Pederson's best catch as a Dodger, but his fourth terrific catch of the day.

Only Shields bounced a single into right and things were about to get away from Bolsinger.
Upton, who had homered off Zack Greinke in the eighth inning to win Saturday's game, delivered again with a two-run single up the middle.
When Bolsinger came back to walk former Dodger Matt Kemp and load the bases again on his 31st pitch in the inning, it ended his day. Howell got the inning's final out to start the nice run by the bullpen.
Bolsinger, who held the Padres scoreless on one hit May 23, was charged with the two runs on six hits and three walks. In his 4 2/3 innings, he threw 89 pitches.
Meanwhile, the Dodgers could not cash in on multiple early scoring opportunities against Shields. They did not get to him until Andre Ethier hit a one-out, solo home run in the seventh. For Ethier, who had only four home runs last season, it was his ninth of the season.
Shields left after the seventh for a pinch-hitter. He gave up the one run on five hits and three walks, striking out six.
