SAN DIEGO - Adrian Gonzalez and Hanley Ramirez hit back-to-back home runs in the ninth inning to give the Los Angeles Dodgers a 3-1 victory over the San Diego Padres on Sunday.
Gonzalez broke a 1-all tie with a drive to right field off closer Huston Street, and Ramirez hit the next pitch to right-center to help Los Angeles split the four-game series. It was the second home run in two days for both players.
Street (0-4) has given up 10 home runs in 26 1-3 innings this season. Last year, he allowed two in 39 innings.
Brandon League (3-3) got the last out in the eighth and Kenley Jansen earned his fourth save.
Ramirez kept up his torrid hitting of late. He is 11 for 22 with six runs, seven RBIs and two homers in his last six games.
