Russell Martin and Matt Kemp drove in two runs each in a four-run seventh inning as the Los Angeles Dodgers took advantage of shoddy outfield play to defeat the San Diego Padres 7-2 on Tuesday night.

The loss deprived San Diego’s Greg Maddux of his 351st victory for the sixth straight start. It also snapped the Padres’ season-high five-game winning streak.
