LOS ANGELES — Cameron Maybin stole a win from the Los Angeles Dodgers and gave the San Diego Padres a series victory over their NL West rivals.

Maybin robbed Matt Kemp of a go-ahead homer in the seventh inning after Carlos Quentin put San Diego ahead with a sacrifice fly, and the Padres beat Los Angeles 4-3 Wednesday night after the teams had split a pair of 11-inning decisions.

Nick Vincent (2-0) retired all four batters he faced after relieving starter Clayton Richard with two outs in the fifth. Fellow rookie Brad Boxberger struck out Shane Victorino and walked Adrian Gonzalez to open the seventh, and Kemp followed with a long drive to center. Maybin timed his leap perfectly before pulling it down.

LOS ANGELES — Cameron Maybin stole a win from the Los Angeles Dodgers and gave the San Diego Padres a series victory over their NL West rivals.

Maybin robbed Matt Kemp of a go-ahead homer in the seventh inning after Carlos Quentin put San Diego ahead with a sacrifice fly, and the Padres beat Los Angeles 4-3 Wednesday night after the teams had split a pair of 11-inning decisions.

Nick Vincent (2-0) retired all four batters he faced after relieving starter Clayton Richard with two outs in the fifth. Fellow rookie Brad Boxberger struck out Shane Victorino and walked Adrian Gonzalez to open the seventh, and Kemp followed with a long drive to center. Maybin timed his leap perfectly before pulling it down.

Dodgers reliever Shawn Tolleson (1-1), who allowed seven runs and nine hits in 4 1/3 innings over his previous four appearances, struck out the side on 15 pitches in the sixth after replacing starter Aaron Harang. But the rookie right-hander gave up a leadoff walk in the seventh to Venable, who stole second and scored on Quentin’s sacrifice fly after being held at third on Headley’s single.

The loss kept the Dodgers 4 1/2 games behind the first-place Giants in the NL West, with a pivotal three-game series between the storied rivals starting Friday night in San Francisco. Los Angeles remained 1 1/2 games behind St. Louis for the second wild card. via  ESPN.com
