SAN DIEGO (AP) — Chris Capuano won for the first in eight starts and the Los Angeles Dodgers inched closer in the wild-card race, beating the San Diego Padres 8-4 on Thursday night.

Luis Cruz hit a two-run single to help the Dodgers pull within three games of idle St. Louis for the second NL wild card. Both teams have six games remaining.

Capuano (12-11) carried a 6-0 lead into the sixth. The left-hander allowed one run and five hits in 5 1-3 innings for his first win since Aug. 12 at Miami.

Cruz had three hits, including his key single in the fifth as Los Angeles scored four runs with two outs to go ahead 5-0.

The Dodgers had 14 hits for the second straight game. Before that, the struggling offense managed more than three runs in only four of 19 games.
