MLB: Los Angeles Dodgers 7, San Diego 4

Randy Wolf scattered four hits, struck out five and gave up two runs in seven innings to earn his 100th victory Saturday as the Dodgers defeated the Padres 7-4.

Wolf has won his last five decisions and is unbeaten in his last seven starts for the Dodgers, who have alternated wins and losses for the last seven games and retained their 4 1/2-game lead over the Rockies in the NL West.

Andre Ethier, who went 2-for-5 with a homer, had two RBI. James Loney also drove in two runs and Matt Kemp one.

Kevin Kouzmanoff scored a run and drove in one for the Padres, whose four-game winning streak ended. Edgar Gonzalez and his brother and teammate, Adrian, each drove in a run.

Mat Latos (4-5) lost his fourth straight decision, giving up four runs, two earned, on three hits in three innings.

Jonathan Broxton picked up his 32nd save for the Dodgers.

The Dodgers have beaten the Padres in 10 of 15 games this season, including six of eight in Los Angeles.
