Since 1914, Seager is just one of two Dodgers rookies to have at least two hits, two RBI and a double in his Major League debut. Russell Martin was the other.
Seager struck out in his first big-league at-bat, but he shook that off for what was a very fine debut.
The home run was Gyorko's 11th of the season, and he is now batting .316 with three homers and nine RBI over his last 10 games.
Solarte saved his biggest hits for late in the game. In the seventh inning, he crushed a pitch to deep left field for his 12th homer of the season--a solo shot which brought the Padres to within a run.
In the next inning, he laced an RBI-double to pad the Padres' lead to their final score of 10-7 in the victory over the Dodgers.
Solarte was in need of a big offensive performance, as he entered the game stuck in a 4-for-26 skid.
Rea was staked to an early 4-0 lead after the second inning, and he was able to keep the Dodgers off the board over the first four frames. But he allowed two runs to score in his final inning of work, though he left with a two-run lead.
The bullpen coughed up that lead, costing Rea a chance for his third big-league win.
