Los Angeles Dodgers starting pitcher Clayton Kershaw reacts after a called ball by umpire Toby Basner while throwing to San Diego Padres' Wil Myers in the eighth inning of a baseball game Saturday, May 6, 2017, in San Diego. He gave up two hits, threw a wild pitch and gave up an unearned run before Roberts came to get him. He also had two homers on April 29 in a win over the Philadelphia Phillies.
Roberts said Kershaw (118 pitches) will get an extra day's rest before next start.
"I was trying to go down and away with my sinker".
"I haven't seen too many people put a barrel on that, let alone hit a home run", Kershaw said.
Padres starter Clayton Richard issued six of those walks and chased then with seven hits allowed in 5.0 innings to take the loss. Three Dodgers pitchers each walked a batter in the inning.
Bellinger hit a grand slam and drove in five runs, and Los Angeles beat the San Diego Padres 10-2 on Saturday night.
Hernandez drilled a line drive down the left-field line that could have cleared the bases, but Franklin Gutierrez stopped at third base and had to exit the game with a hamstring injury. So Renfroe drew walks in each of his first two plate appearances against Kershaw.

Berkeley police has also reached out to local and state police forces to inform them if they might be calling for assistance. She told Florida-based radio station 850 WFTL on Wednesday, "I still wanted to do it but I'm running out of options here".
Said Padres manager Andy Green: "I've been aware of him for quite some time now and he took some very good swings today".
Josh Fields threw 1 1/3 innings for his first save. The 21-year-old Bellinger has already obliterated Triple-A pitching to the tune of.343 with 5 home runs and 15 RBIs to go along with 7 stolen bases through his first 18 games.
But Cory Spangenberg led off the fourth with a double and scored on Ryan Schimpf's single to tie it at 1. Justin Turner leads the Dodgers with 40 hits and 14 RBI while Corey Seager and Yasiel Puig have combined for 59 hits and 35 RBI. He struck out five. He is on the disabled list for the second time this season with a blister on his left middle finger.
Yes, it's a good thing the Dodgers kept Bellinger in the bigs after activating Joc Pederson from the disabled list.
Austin Barnes started behind the plate for a Clayton Kershaw start for the first time on Saturday, which was even more noteworthy because the Padres started Clayton Richard on the mound and Austin Hedges behind the plate.
