Dodgers Vs. Padres Game Recap: L.A. Drops 2nd Straight, 4-3

Chad Headley had two hits, including an RBI double, leading the San Diego Padres over the Los Angeles Dodgers 4-3 on Wednesday night at Dodger Stadium. The second straight loss for the Dodgers meant they finished their homestand with a 3-4 record, and remained 1 ½ games behind the St. Louis Cardinals for the second wild card in the National League.

Headley also singled in the seventh inning, moving Will Venable to third base, and Carlos Quentin drove Venable home with a sacrifice fly.

Aaron Harang allowed 10 baserunners in his five innings, but somehow managed to only allow three runs, all in the first inning. Harang pitched five innings and left off the hook as the Dodgers struck back for single runs in the second, third, and fifth innings.

Luke Gregerson pitched a scoreless ninth for his fifth save of the season.

The Dodgers have Thursday off, but will travel to San Francisco for a weekend series against the first-place Giants, beginning Friday night at AT&T Park. Josh Beckett will start the opener for the Padres, facing Tim Lincecum for San Francisco.
