Atlanta, GA (Sports Network) - Alex Gonzalez went 2-for-3 and drove in four runs as Atlanta blitzed Los Angeles, 13-1, in the third installment of a four- game set from Turner Field.
Omar Infante collected three hits, scored three times and knocked in a run while Melky Cabrera and Brooks Conrad added two hits and an RBI each for Atlanta, which increased its lead over Philadelphia in the NL East to 2 1/2 games. The Phillies play the Mets later Sunday.
Jair Jurrjens (5-4) went seven innings and scattered six hits with one run, fanning seven and walking one.
Vicente Padilla (6-4) was torched in defeat for eight hits and tied a career high by allowing eight earned runs over 4 1/3 innings.
Atlanta exploded for four runs in the third and provided all the support Jurrjens needed.
Conrad led off with a single then scored when Cabrera followed with a double. Jurrjens laid down a sacrifice bunt then Infante stroked an RBI single. Rick Ankiel kept the rally going with another single to put runners on the corners before Gonzalez knocked in two with a triple.
In the fifth, a Brian McCann sac fly preceded a three-run blast from Glaus for an 8-0 game, and a Gonzalez sac fly with the bases loaded in the sixth made it a nine-run bulge.
Brad Ausmus' double-play grounder in the seventh put the Dodgers on the board, then Gonzalez, Glaus and Eric Hinske and Conrad added run-scoring hits in the eighth to cap the scoring at 13-1.
