Terry Kennedy hit a two-run double and Broderick Perkins tripled in two more runs to highlight a seven-run eighth inning in San Diego as the Padres completed their first four-game sweep over Los Angeles since 1969.
The Padres were trailing, 3-2, entering the eighth but sent 13 men to the plate as they rallied for their fifth consecutive victory.
Garry Templeton led off with a single and Ruppert Jones singled him to third. After Lezcano popped up, Steve Howe replaced Dave Stewart (0-2) and Kennedy greeted him with his double down the right field line. Luis Salazar was walked intentionally, but Perkins tripled to center field to give the Padres a 6-3 lead. San Diego scored its final three runs on a wild pitch, an RBI single by Juan Bonilla and a bases-loaded walk to Sixto Lezcano.
Both benches emptied in the third inning when Los Angeles pitcher Bob Welch sailed a pitch behind Bonilla, leading off the inning. Bonilla took several steps toward the mound as several players charged from the dugouts, but no punches were thrown. The Dodgers said they were playing the game under protest because San Diego catcher Steve Swisher, still on the disabled list, left the bench during the fracas.
