Dodgers 3, Padres 1

Associated Press  |  Last updated June 23, 2013
Adrian Gonzalez and Hanley Ramirez hit back-to-back home runs in the ninth inning to give the Los Angeles Dodgers a 3-1 victory over the San Diego Padres on Sunday. Gonzalez broke a 1-all tie with a drive to right field off closer Huston Street, and Ramirez hit the next pitch to right-center to help Los Angeles split the four-game series. It was the second home run in two days for both players. Street (0-4) has given up 10 home runs in 26 1-3 innings this season. Last year, he allowed two in 39 innings. Brandon League (3-3) got the last out in the eighth and Kenley Jansen earned his fourth save. Ramirez kept up his torrid hitting of late. He is 11 for 22 with six runs, seven RBIs and two homers in his last six games. The game was a pitchers' duel until the ninth. Padres starter Andrew Cashner allowed one run in eight innings. He generated 18 outs on the ground with efficiency uncharacteristic of a strikeout pitcher. He fanned only two, but was rarely challenged by the Dodgers. Juan Uribe broke a scoreless tie with a two-out double in the seventh that drove in Gonzalez, the former San Diego star. The lead didn't last long, though. Carlos Quentin opened the bottom half with a home run to left off reliever Peter Moylan. Chris Capuano volunteered to start on three days' rest for the Dodgers just days after returning from the disabled list. He was healthy, able and up to the task. The left-hander threw five shutout innings, struck out five and walked none. Los Angeles needed someone to start on short rest after playing a doubleheader Wednesday against the New York Yankees. Capuano pitched six shutout innings that day, showing no ill effects from the strained left calf that sidelined him on May 29. Capuano had pitched on short rest once before. He allowed three runs in 5 1-3 innings on Oct. 2, 2005. This time, he let only two runners reach scoring position and was pulled before the sixth due to a 75-pitch limit. He threw 74. Capuano's outing continued a positive stretch for Dodgers starters. The group has a 2.66 ERA over the last 17 games. NOTES: Dodgers CF Matt Kemp went 0 for 5 with four strikeouts Saturday in his first rehab game with Triple-A Albuquerque. He was the DH and will play center field throughout the rest of his assignment, the final stage of his recovery from a hamstring injury. It's scheduled for three games, but manager Don Mattingly said Sunday that the stint could be extended to ensure Kemp's timing at the plate is right. OF Scott Van Slyke (shoulder) also is on a rehab assignment with Albuquerque. ... The Padres recalled RHPs Miles Mikolas and Brad Brach from Triple-A Tucson and optioned RHPs Anthony Bass and Brad Boxberger back to their top farm team. The moves were made to add fresh arms to the bullpen, with RHPs Tim Stauffer and Tyson Ross unavailable following extended outings Friday night, when LHP Clayton Richard was removed with an injury in the first inning. ... There is no exact timetable for Padres 2B Jedd Gyorko (groin) to start a minor league rehab assignment with Class-A Lake Elsinore, but manager Bud Black believes it will be sometime next week.
