SAN DIEGO (AP) -- Jake Cronenworth and rookie Ha-seong Kim homered off Clayton Kershaw, Blake Snell pitched five scoreless innings and the San Diego Padres got their third straight win against the rival Los Angeles Dodgers, 3-2.

The Padres improved to 6-3 this season against the Dodgers and will go for a three-game sweep Wednesday night.

Los Angeles swept San Diego in the NL Division Series last year en route to the World Series title.

Snell got his first victory in four career starts against the Dodgers, including three this year. He didn't factor into the decision in either outing earlier this season.
