Padilla Tunes Up With Win

Vicente Padilla, expected to be promoted to start for the Dodgers Thursday in Colorado, tuned up for that one with a win at Triple-A Albuquerque Saturday night. Padilla allowed two runs on three hits in five innings, striking out five with three walks. He made 84 pitches and allowed a home run in Albuquerque’s 8-4 win over Nashville. Padilla was signed last week after being released by Texas. He will take over the spot of disabled Opening Day starter Hiroki Kuroda. — Ken Gurnick
