LOS ANGELES, May 18 (UPI) -- The Florida Marlins took a 14-5 pounding as Olmedo Saenz hit a three-run homer and Jeff Kent added four RBI for the Los Angeles Dodgers at Dodger Stadium.

The Dodgers recorded a season-high 19 hits to go along with a season best in run production. Dodgers starter Derek Lowe (3-4) threw 6 2/3 innings for the win.

The Marlins' Dontrelle Willis (7-1), who lost for the first time in eight starts this season, threw five scoreless innings after allowing four runs -- three earned -- on four hits in the opening frame. The lefthander finished with six strikeouts and one walk while surrendering seven hits.

Florida's Josh Beckett (5-3) will pitch against Jeff Weaver (4-2) in the series finale Wednesday afternoon.
