Padres rookie took funny shot at Dodgers after win

Padres logo

Eric Lauer may be a rookie, but he already knows how to win over a fanbase.

The San Diego Padres lefty stymied the Los Angeles Dodgers on Tuesday night, striking out eight batters over 8.2 innings of one-run ball to lead the team to the 4-1 victory. It was Lauer’s second career start against the Dodgers after a similarly dominant performance against them in May where he threw six shutout innings in a 3-0 Padres win.

After the game, Lauer was asked about his success against the Dodgers and got in a funny shot at them for good measure, per AJ Cassavell of MLB.com.

The 23-year-old Lauer has been notably less successful against non-Dodgers teams this season — he holds a modest 5-5 record with a 4.40 ERA in 15 starts on the year as a whole. Regardless though, throwing shade at the boys in blue is a great way to gain clout, as another NL West rival can attest to.
