The Los Angeles Dodgers reinstated outfielder Cody Bellinger from the injured list while placing first baseman Albert Pujols on the COVID-19 list prior to their 2-1 victory over the San Diego Padres on Tuesday night.

Manager Dave Roberts told reporters that Pujols had been vaccinated and was feeling side effects from his second jab.

“We got to take care of our own business,” said Trea Turner, who had three hits and scored his 100th run of the season. “Close game, but all that matters is we won. It’s good to start the week with a win.”

Walker Buehler tossed seven shutout innings, earning a career-best 15th victory. For the first time in his career, he reached 202-2/3 innings pitched, breaking his personal record of 182-1/3 in 2019.

The 27-year-old was also close to reaching another personal record of 215 strikeouts, also set in 2019. He went over 200 strikeouts, getting five to reach 201.

“Those two numbers together are something I’m definitely proud of,” Buehler said. “It’s a big thing for me as a starting pitcher to have a year like that.”

In his 32nd start of the season, Buehler (15-4) allowed three hits and walked two to win for the first time since September 11, also facing San Diego.
