KEY MOMENT: Kevin Correia moved from the rotation to the bullpen, but the results were the same. Correia gave up the winning run to the Padres in a nightmarish 12th inning. He gave up a leadoff single to Alexi Amarista and walked Yangervis Solarte with one out. Correia than uncorked a wild pitch that advanced the runners to second and third base. Correia walked Abraham Almonte to load the bases. Seth Smith hit into a forceout at home. The game ended when Correia served up a walk-off single to Yasmani Grandal.

ON THE MOUND: Dan Haren pitched well, limiting the Padres to two runs (one earned) and five hits over six innings. Jamey Wright, J.P. Howell, Brian Wilson, Pedro Baez, Carlos Frias and Brandon League combined to pitch five scoreless innings.

AT THE PLATE: When Hanley Ramirez left the game in the bottom of the eighth inning, he was a triple short of the cycle. Ramirez drove in two runs, the first on a third-inning double and the other on an eighth-inning solo home run. Andrew Cashner, the Padres' hard-throwing starting pitcher, held the Dodgers to a run and six hits over six innings.

MEDICAL REPORT: Hyun-Jin Ryu is scheduled to be activated from the disabled list Sunday to face the Padres in the series finale at Petco Park. The Dodgers wanted the left-hander to face the Padres, against whom he is 3-0 with an 0.71 earned-run average in four career starts. Roberto Hernandez will start Monday against Washington.

ON THE FARM: Joc Pederson, an outfielder with triple-A Albuquerque, was named most valuable player of the Pacific Coast League. Pederson was the first PCL player in 80 years to hit 30 home runs and steal 30 bases in the same season.

UP NEXT: Zack Greinke (13-8, 2.79 ERA) will face Ian Kennedy (10-11, 3.75) and the Padres at Petco Park on Saturday at 5:30 p.m. On the air: TV: SportsNet LA. Radio: 570, 1020.
