SAN DIEGO -- Solo home runs by Alexi Amarista and Derek Norris powered the Padres to a 3-1 win over the Dodgers Sunday to avoid being swept in their three-game series at Petco Park and end a four-game losing streak. Norris also doubled in a run for the Padres.
Brandon Morrow allowed a solo home run to Alex Guerrero in the fifth inning for the only Dodgers run of the game. He pitched seven innings, allowing five hits to earn his first win since April 9, 2014 against Houston as a member of the Blue Jays.
