Chase Headley homered, doubled and drove in three runs, and the last-place San Diego Padres rallied to beat the NL West-leading Los Angeles Dodgers 4-2 Wednesday night, helping left-hander Clayton Richard snap his personal five-game losing streak.
Richard and two relievers combined on a five-hitter as the Padres beat L.A. for only the second time in eight games this season. The Dodgers have lost two straight since Matt Kemp went on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left hamstring.
Dodgers lefty Chris Capuano (5-1), who had won his previous four starts, took a two-hitter and a 2-1 lead into the sixth. Cameron Maybin and Chris Denorfia opened the inning with singles before the switch-hitting Headley doubled into the gap in left-center to bring them both in.
Capuano loaded the bases in in the seventh with a single, his throwing error and a walk. Javy Guerra came on and walked Maybin on four straight pitches to make it 4-2.
