Matt Kemp had a hit, two walks, stole a base and scored twice. Andre Ethier drove in a run with a fifth-inning single.
ON THE MOUND: Dan Haren improved to 5-1 by limiting the Marlins to three runs and seven hits over seven innings.

Setup man Brian Wilson, who inherited a 6-3 lead, served up a pinch-hit, two-run home run to Reed Johnson. Kenley Jansen earned his 12th save.
