SAN DIEGO (AP) — Aaron Harang pitched six sharp innings, and Ryan Ludwick broke out of a slump with a go-ahead homer and Nick Hundley added a two-run shot in the San Diego Padres’ 7-2 win over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Sunday.

Cameron Maybin had a solo home run and an RBI triple as the Padres avoided a three-game sweep.

Ludwick was 2 for 23 on the season before he connected off John Ely (0-1), who was called up from Triple-A before the game, for his first homer leading off the fourth inning.

Harang (2-0) turned in his second solid performance, allowing two runs — one earned — on three hits.

The first run he allowed came without the benefit of a hit while the second scored on
Harang’s throwing error.

Harang and three relievers combined on a three-hitter.
