NEW YORK, July 21 (UPI) -- Juan Uribe homered and drove in four runs Saturday, powering the Los Angeles Dodgers to an 8-5 victory over the New York Mets.

Uribe delivered a two-run double and later came in to score on a Luis Cruz single in the third inning, handing the Dodgers a 4-0 lead, and the Los Angeles third baseman added a two-run homer in the ninth to cap the scoring.

Matt Kemp went 2-for-4 with a run-scoring triple for the Dodgers, who clinched their three-game series against the Mets.

Chris Capuano (10-5) earned the victory, breaking a personal four-start winless streak. The left-hander allowed three runs on eight hits over seven innings, walking one and striking out nine.

Mets starter Miguel Batista (1-3) was touched for four runs on five hits in a three-inning effort.

Ronny Cedeno went 2-for-3 with a solo homer while Scott Hairston added two hits, including an RBI single, for New York.
