Chris Capuano pitched seven strong innings and the Dodgers rallied behind him. One second baseman drove in another in the eighth inning on Saturday night to give the Dodgers a 2-1 win over the Padres and their third straight victory.

Skip Schumaker starting at second base for Mark Ellis doubled to open the eighth inning. One out later Ellis was used as a pinch hitter and singled him home for what proved to be the winning run.

Capuano turned in his best performance in four weeks pitching seven innings. Capuano's eight hits allowed were mostly scattered though Ronny Cedeno hit one over the wall in right center field for his first home run of the season in the fourth inning.
