Dodgers 6, Padres 2
Andre Ethier follows through on his game-tying triple in the eighth inning. (Denis Poroy/AP)
Andre Ethier had four RBIs and scored the go-ahead run on Manny Ramirez's sac fly, as the Dodgers rallied and got help from the Giants, who also rallied to beat the D-backs. That means Los Angeles leads the NL West by 2 1/2 games.
