LOS ANGELES, Sept. 5 (UPI) -- Logan Forsythe singled in two runs in the top of the 11th Tuesday to give the San Diego Padres a 6-3 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Forsythe's hit, which ended the Padres' three-game losing streak, came after a throwing error by Luis Cruz put two runners in scoring position.

Chase Headley followed with a run-scoring single to add to the San Diego lead.

Headley had two hits and Chris DeNorfia and Yasmani Grandal hit home runs. Grandal's two-run homer in the eighth tied the score 3-3.

Tommy Layne (1-0) struck out the side in the 10th for the win. Luke Gregerson picked up his fourth save.

John Ely (0-1) took the loss in relief of Clayton Kershaw, who allowed one run on five hits and three walks and struck out nine over seven innings. He left with a three-run lead but the Padres tied it in the eighth on Grandal's seventh home run of the season.

The Dodgers' Mark Ellis tied the score 1-1 with an RBI double in the second inning and Shane Victorino drove in a run in the seventh.
