Corey Seager's bases-loaded single led to three runs, Cody Bellinger and Chris Taylor added solo homers and the Los Angeles Dodgers rallied from a sixth-inning deficit to beat the San Diego Padres 6-3 Saturday night

LOS ANGELES — The Los Angeles Dodgers have become so accustomed to winning this season, they are almost stunned when they do not rally to pull out a game.

After losing the series opener to the San Diego Padres, the Dodgers were not about to go quietly Saturday after falling behind 3-1 in the sixth.

This time it was Corey Seager coming up with the big hit, his bases-loaded single leading to three runs in the Dodgers' 6-3 victory.

"It's just what we do," said Dodgers manager Dave Roberts. "Just continually to get guys on base and get that big hit."

With their 27th win in 32 games, the Dodgers improved the best record in the major leagues to 82-34, on pace for 115 wins.

Trailing 3-1 in the sixth, the Dodgers loaded the bases when Chase Utley doubled between walks to Yamani Grandal and Yasiel Puig from Craig Stammen (0-2). Seager followed with a tying single to right as Puig took third, and when Seager overran first and got caught in a rundown, Puig broke for home and with a headfirst slide beat the throw from first baseman Wil Myers.

"It was the right play," Myers said. "I saw Puig out of the corner of my eye but I pulled the throw a little. I rushed it."

Cody Bellinger homered in the seventh off Carter Capps and with 34 home runs is one shy of Mike Piazza's team rookie record. Chris Taylor went deep against Phil Maton in the eighth.

Tony Watson (6-4) pitched a perfect sixth inning for his first win since the Dodgers acquired him from Pittsburgh at the July 31 trade deadline. Kenley Jansen allowed a pair of singles starting the ninth, then retired three in a row, including the last two on strikeouts, for his 31st save in 32 chances.
