Padres avoid sweep with 7-2 win over Dodgers

San Diego Padres' Nick Hundley watches his two-run home run to center field against the Los Angeles Dodgers in the sixth inning of a baseball game on Sunday, April, 10, 2011, in San Diego.

SAN DIEGO (AP) — Aaron Harang pitched six sharp innings, and Ryan Ludwick broke out of a slump with a go-ahead homer and Nick Hundley added a two-run shot in the San Diego Padres' 7-2 win over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Sunday.

Cameron Maybin hit a solo home run and had an RBI triple as the Padres avoided a three-game sweep.

Ludwick was 2 for 23 this year before he connected off John Ely (0-1) leading off the fourth inning.

Harang (2-0) turned in his second solid performance, allowing two runs — one earned — on three hits. The first run he allowed came without the benefit of a hit while the second scored on Harang's throwing error.

Harang and three relievers combined on a three-hitter.

Hundley, who has hit safely in all seven games he's played this season, took Ely deep into the Padres' center field bullpen in the sixth right after Ludwick drew a two-out walk.

Ely, who was recalled from Triple-A Albuquerque before the game, nearly matched Harang for the first five innings. Ely, who struck out five and walked three, struck out the first two batters in the sixth before he walked Ludwick and Hundley hit a first-pitch fastball for his second home run.

Ludwick struggled last year when he hit just .211 with the Padres after being acquired from St. Louis at the July 31 trade deadline in a three-team deal. Ludwick got off to a slow start this season as San Diego has scuffled offensively.

Tony Gwynn Jr., who had a big day against his former team on Saturday when the Dodgers won twice, led off the game with a walk, stole second and scored on Andre Ethier's ground out.

The Padres tied the score 1-all in the third as Jorge Cantu's RBI single scored Orlando Hudson, who reached on a double.

NOTES: Dodgers SS Rafael Furcal took the day off with a sore left wrist, but was available to bunt as a pinch hitter or as a defensive replacement. ... Padres manager Bud Black confirmed that LHP Clayton Richard, who pitched just one inning Friday night before a rain delay of 1 hour, 34 minutes, will pitch Tuesday against Cincinnati. Tim Stauffer, who had been penciled in for Tuesday, will be the starter Wednesday afternoon against the Reds. ... San Diego recalled LHP Wade LeBlanc from Triple-A Tucson and reinstated utility man Eric Patterson from the 15-day disabled list. ... The Dodgers originally were going to send down reserve C A.J. Ellis to Triple-A Albuquerque but changed course when they found out that C Hector Jimenez had inflammation in his right knee, forcing them to place Jimenez on the DL.
