Gonzalez's Homer Sparks Padres

Adrian Gonzalez's solo homer starts a rally that ends with the Dodgers in the losing column.

Gonzalez's began the three-run rally in the eighth inning that carried the San Diego Padres to a 4-3 win over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Thursday.
Closer Heath Bell got out of a jam in the ninth and the Padres salvaged a split of an opening, four-game series against the defending NL West champion Dodgers. The Dodgers had been working on a combined three-hitter before Gonzalez's one-out, opposite-field homer off the facade of the second deck in left-center pulled San Diego to 3-2.
