LOS ANGELES, April 30 (UPI) -- Solo homers from Juan Uribe and Matt Kemp Friday lifted the Los Angeles Dodgers to a 3-2 victory over San Diego.

Uribe broke a 1-1 tie with a shot to center in the fourth and Kemp added his homer in the seventh to hand the Padres their third straight setback.

Ted Lilly (2-2) gave up only a third-inning run on five hits with four strikeouts over six innings to get the win.

Jonathan Broxton survived a shaky ninth inning to pick up his sixth save. Broxton retired the first two batters in the ninth, then gave up a single to Will Venable.

Venable went to second on fielder's indifference and scored on Orlando Hudson's single. Hudson moved to third on Chase Headley's single to put the potential winning run on base.

Nick Hundley then hit the ball hard, but right at left fielder Tony Gwynn to end the game.

Clayton Richard (1-2) took the loss, giving up two runs on eight hits in 5 2/3.
