LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Jason Marquis pitched three-hit ball over 7 2-3 innings for his first win of the season and Alexi Amarista tied a career high with four RBIs, leading the San Diego Padres to a 9-2 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Tuesday night. Marquis (1-1) allowed his only run on Mark Ellis' bases-loaded sacrifice fly and struck out five. Nick Hundley and Yonder Alonso each had two RBIs, helping the Padres win their second straight over Los Angeles after a 2-10 start and handing the Dodgers their third straight loss. Chris Capuano (0-1) came out of the bullpen to make his first start of the season in place of 147-million right-hander Zack Greinke, whose collarbone was broken during a bench-clearing brawl with the Padres in San Diego last Thursday, after he hit Carlos Quentin with a pitch. Quentin, who charged the mound, served the second game of his eight-game suspension. Capuano made two appearances during his stint in the bullpen, facing 11 batters in 2 2-3 innings and striking out four. The Padres jumped on Capuano for five hits and four runs during a 27-pitch first inning that included an RBI single by Alonzo, a bases-loaded walk to Hundley and a two-run single by Amarista. One inning later, Capuano took another flip from Gonzalez on a grounder by Alonzo for the third out -- but hit the bag hard with his right foot and started hopping around before returning to the dugout. After Capuano began the third with a walk to Jesus Guzman, manager Don Mattingly and a trainer went out to check on him. Capuano tried a couple of warmup throws and was replaced by Matt Guerrier. One out later, Kyle Blanks doubled over the head of center fielder Matt Kemp and Hundley followed with a sacrifice fly to make it 5-0. Marquis hit Justin Sellers with a pitch in the third inning without incident. At the time, it gave the Dodgers two on and none out. Ellis came within just a few feet of his 100th career homer and fourth grand slam as center fielder Chris Denorfia raced back to haul it in as Juan Uribe scored. Amarista, who had only two RBIs in 34 at-bats this season entering Tuesday, extended San Diego's lead to 6-1 in the fifth with a sacrifice fly after a two-out double by Hundley. The Padres tacked on two more in the sixth against Josh Wall, who gave up Alonso's RBI double and Jedd Gyorko's RBI single. Amarista added another RBI single in the ninth off Brandon League. The Dodgers' other run came on a bases-loaded walk in the ninth by pinch-hitter Nick Punto against Andrew Cashner. Gonzalez was 0 for 4, ending his 13-game hitting streak against his former team. It was the first time he went hitless against the Padres since they traded him to Boston in December 2010. NOTES: Clayton Kershaw takes the mound for the Dodgers in Wednesday night's series finale, needing one strikeout for 1,000. He has pitched 967 1-3 innings, compared to Hall of Famer Sandy Koufax, another Cy Young-winning Dodgers lefty who needed 989 2-3 innings to get his 1,000th. "I like to watch Kershaw pitch because it brings back memories of Sandy," said Lou Johnson, who was Koufax's teammate for three seasons and is now a member of the Dodgers' community relations department. "I see a lot of similarities. One is the size of his hand. That has a lot to do with it. Another is he wants to be the workhorse. And they both have the same heart and killer instinct. I have said to him privately: Man, you pitch like another fella I know,' and he tipped his cap to me." ... The crowd of 35,898 observed a moment of silence for the second straight night in honor of the victims of the Boston Marathon bombing. Both the left and right field scoreboards went black, and the Dodgers took the field to the song "I'm Shipping Up To Boston," by the Dropkick Murphys. The flags were at half-staff, and Neil Diamond's "Sweet Caroline" was played on the p.a. system as a tribute to the Boston Red Sox fans.
