Gonzalez, Ramirez lift Dodgers over Padres 3-1
LA DODGERS 3, SAN DIEGO 1

SAN DIEGO (AP) -- The Los Angeles Dodgers were celebrating Adrian
Gonzalez's tiebreaking home run when the crowd's roar directed
attention back to the field.



Hanley Ramirez sent the next pitch out, too, giving the Dodgers
a 3-1 victory over the San Diego Padres on Sunday and a split
the four-game series.



"Hanley's home run was the after-party that keeps the
celebration going," Gonzalez said. "This win was a big one for
us. We needed to split the series and build some positive
momentum. I'm glad we were able to do that."



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. It was the second home run in two days for both
players.



"We're 2-0 when Hanley and I homer in the same game," Gonzalez
said. "We need to keep that trend going. We need to produce in
the middle of the lineup."



The Dodgers also got solid efforts on the mound. Chris Capuano
threw five shutout innings on short rest and a shaky bullpen
held up when Padres relievers could not.



"A lot of good stuff happened today," Dodgers manager Don
Mattingly said. "We got a solid start and clutch hitting from
the middle of our lineup. That's what you want. That's what you
should expect from this club."



The Dodgers have been beset by injuries - Matt Kemp, Carl
Crawford and Ted Lilly remain out - but Mattingly doesn't want
to use that as a crutch. He believes the Dodgers are healthy
enough now to win consistently.



"We are pretty much at full strength," Mattingly said. "There
are no excuses at this point. We have the talent in the middle
of the order to produce in a big way. It's nice when those
thumpers come through for us in the clutch."



Street (0-4) has given up 10 home runs in 26 1-3 innings this
season. Last year, he allowed two in 39 innings.



"Bottom line ... it's location," Padres manager Bud Black said.
"Huston is a guy who changes speeds. He has impeccable control.
This year, at times, it's been spotty. We have to get him to the
point where he's consistently hitting his spots and making his
pitches."



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 Dodgers were in position to win because of Capuano, who
volunteered to start on short rest 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. He let only two runners reach scoring position and
was pulled before the sixth due to a 75-pitch limit. He threw
74.



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.



"I knew that I had a relatively stress free outing in New York
where I threw just 80 pitches," Capuano said. "I knew we were
going to need a starter for Sunday and I thought I was the guy
to take that responsibility. Given the way my body and my arm
felt, the assignment made perfect sense."



Capuano has pitched 11 shutout innings since returning from the
DL, a run he credits to a mechanical tweak that has improved
location and the life on his fastball.



Padres starter Andres Cashner had life on most pitches in one of
the best starts of his young career. He 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.



"The best part about it was the efficiency," Cashner said. "I
was able to keep my pitch count down and I threw some good
pitches when I was behind in the count."



The Dodgers have won two straight, but haven't won three in a
row since April 7th. Buried in last place, the Dodgers must go
on a run to get back in the NL West race. Mattingly knows they
need to do it soon.



"This is a time where we need to get on a roll and we build some
momentum," he said. "We've seemed to stall in the past. This
time, hopefully we won't."



NOTES: 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 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.
