LOS ANGELES (AP) — Jason Marquis took a no-hitter into the sixth inning and the San Diego Padres beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 6-2 on Wednesday night after dropping the first two games of the series.

Marquis (7-2) had his no-hitter broken up when Skip Schumaker doubled to deep center field with two outs in the sixth. Adrian Gonzalez followed with a RBI single that trimmed San Diego's lead to 3-1.

Earlier in the inning, Padres right fielder Kyle Blanks temporarily preserved Marquis' no-hit bid with a diving catch and slide on his belly that robbed pinch-hitter Jerry Hairston Jr.

Marquis left after Scott Van Slyke homered with one out in the seventh. The right-hander allowed three hits, struck out six and walked two while improving to 6-0 with a 3.28 ERA in his last eight starts.

Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw (5-4) struck out nine over six innings and was charged with three runs and seven hits. The left-hander gave up at least one hit in each of his innings.

The last-place Dodgers could have passed the Padres in the NL West standings with a victory, but they never led while falling to .500 at home.

San Diego extended its lead to 6-2 with three runs in the ninth. Jedd Gyorko and Yasmani Grandal each had a bases-loaded sacrifice fly, and pinch hitter Will Venable singled home a run.

Gyorko also had a leadoff homer in the fourth and walked and scored on Jesus Guzman's double in the sixth.

The Padres grabbed the lead on Grandal's RBI single with two outs in the second. Dodgers rookie Yasiel Puig went to field the ball with his left-handed glove and it went behind him, allowing Guzman to score.

Puig was hitless in four at-bats with two strikeouts after going a combined 5 for 9 in his first two major league games on Monday and Tuesday, when he had two homers and five RBIs.

NOTES: Dodgers LHP Scott Elbert will undergo Tommy John surgery next week and is expected to be out 12 to 16 months. ... Dodgers RHP Josh Beckett is confident he will pitch again this season, although he won't throw for another four weeks. Currently on the disabled list with a left groin strain, Beckett has been diagnosed with irritation of an upper arm nerve that causes numbness in his right hand and fingers. ... Marquis hasn't lost since April 22, a 7-1 defeat to Milwaukee.
