BOX SCORE | WILD CARD STANDINGS

LOS ANGELES (AP)—Center fielder Cameron Maybin robbed Matt Kemp of a go-ahead homer in the seventh inning after Carlos Quentin put San Diego ahead with a sacrifice fly, and the Padres beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 4-3 Wednesday night to take two of three games in the series.

The loss kept the Dodgers 4 1/2 games behind the first-place Giants in the NL West, with a pivotal three-game series between the storied rivals starting Friday night at San Francisco. Los Angeles remained 1 1/2 games behind St. Louis for the second wild card.

Nick Vincent (2-0) retired all four batters he faced after relieving starter Clayton Richard with two outs in the fifth.
