July 14, 2012 at 12:58 AM   |   Comments

LOS ANGELES, July 14 (UPI) -- Mark Ellis put Los Angeles in front with a two-run homer in the sixth Friday, allowing the Dodgers to end a three-game skid with a 2-1 win over San Diego.

San Diego starter Clayton Richard (6-10) gave up three hits over five scoreless innings before suffering a brief lapse in the sixth.

Tony Gwynn Jr. led off the sixth as a pinch-hitter for Dodgers' starter Clayton Kershaw and reached on a bunt single. Jerry Hairston then hit a grounder back to the mound and Gwynn was erased on a fielder's choice at second, to bring up Ellis -- who launched a 1-2 pitch for his third homer of the season.

Kershaw (7-5) was credited with the win, having allowed a run on six hits with six strikeouts.

Three Los Angeles relievers worked an inning each. Kenley Jansen came on in the ninth for his 16th save.
