Adrian Gonzalez homered in his fifth straight game, Scott Hairston drove in the go-ahead run in a three-run seventh and the San Diego Padres beat the Cincinnati Reds 5-3 on Friday night to snap a six-game losing streak.
Manny Ramirez followed Orlando Hudson's two-run homer with a long ball of his own, and the Los Angeles Dodgers scored the go-ahead run in the seventh inning on an error by catcher Nick Hundley to beat the San Diego Padres 8-5 on Thursday night.
