SAN DIEGO (AP) - Tim Stauffer shut down the Dodgers for 6 1-3 innings, Jason Bartlett homered and the San Diego Padres averted a three-game sweep by beating Los Angeles 3-0 Wednesday night.

Bartlett broke a scoreless tie with a leadoff home run in the sixth against Ted Lilly (7-11). The Padres stopped their five-game losing streak against the Dodgers.

Stauffer (7-8) gave up six hits, walked one and struck out two. Heath Bell, the subject of trade rumors prior to the July 31 deadline, posted his first save since San Diego opted not to deal the closer and his 31st of the season.
