SAN DIEGO (AP) — Alexi Amarista singled in the winning run with one out in the 10th inning and the San Diego Padres beat the NL West-leading Los Angeles Dodgers for the second straight time in extra innings, 2-1 Saturday night.

The third straight extra-inning game tied the Padres' record.

Will Venable started the winning rally with a single to center off Jamey Wright (4-4) and stole second as pinch-hitter Rymer Liriano struck out. Amarista then lofted a single into center field and Venable slid in headfirst just ahead of the throw.

Padres manager Bud Black was ejected in the top of the 10th for arguing a call that Yasiel Puig checked his swing.

Tim Stauffer (6-2) pitched the 10th for the win.

The Padres had runners on first and second with no outs in the ninth when Yasmani Grandal lined a shot back at J.P. Howell. The reliever somehow caught the ball, turned and doubled Abraham Almonte off second. Brian Wilson came on and got Jedd Gyorko to fly out to left.

Starters Zack Greinke and Ian Kennedy both pitched well.

On June 12, 2013, Kennedy, then with Arizona, was one of six players and coaches ejected after a brawl with the Dodgers. Kennedy hit Puig and Greinke with high pitches.

Greinke held San Diego to one run and four hits in eight innings. He struck out eight and walked two.

Kennedy went seven innings, also allowing one run and four hits while striking out eight and walking three.

Kennedy doubled into the gap in right-center with one out in the third to bring in Rene Rivera and give San Diego a 1-0 lead. Rivera was aboard on a leadoff double down the left-field line.

Adrian Gonzalez tied it with a drive into a party deck on the right-field wall with two outs in the sixth. It was his 19th homer.

Gonzalez extended to 61 his record for home runs at Petco Park. He hit 47 when he was with the Padres from 2006-2010.

The Dodgers had runners on first and third with two outs in the eighth when reliever Nick Vincent got Carl Crawford to line out to second baseman Gyorko.

San Diego's Rene Rivera doubled off Greinke leading off the eighth and was replaced by Cameron Maybin. Maybin was picked off on a perfect throw by catcher Drew Butera.

Puig was back in the Dodgers' lineup a day after being benched because manager Don Mattingly felt the outfielder was frustrated. Puig struck out in his first two at-bats. In the sixth, he lifted a high fly ball to deep center field and flipped his bat, thinking it was a home run. Instead, it was just another long fly ball to the fence at spacious Petco Park.

Before the game, Trevor Hoffman was inducted into the Padres Hall of Fame. When he retired after the 2010 season, Hoffman was baseball's career saves leader with 601, 552 of them in 16 seasons with the Padres. He is currently the Padres' upper-level pitching coordinator.

TRAINER'S ROOM

Dodgers: LHP Hyun-Jin Ryu is scheduled to come off the disabled list and start Sunday's series finale. He has been out since Aug. 14 with a strained right hip.

Padres: Manager Bud Black said closer Joaquin Benoit will be sidelined because his right shoulder is sore again. He recently went 11 days between appearances because of soreness.

UP NEXT:

Dodgers: Ryu (13-6, 3.28 ERA) last pitched in a loss at Atlanta on Aug. 13, allowing three runs in 5 2-3 innings.

Padres: Eric Stults (6-14, 4.63 ERA) has allowed two or fewer earned runs in 10 of his last 12 starts.
