Dodgers pad lead

Dodgers 7, Padres 2

A pair of Manny Ramirez home runs and 5 1/3 sharp innings by Derek Lowe allowed the Dodgers to extend their NL West lead over the D-backs to a comfortable 3 1/2 games. Only a premature exit by Lowe in the sixth after he was struck by a comebacker mitigated the win.
