Recap: Los Angeles vs. San Diego

Los Angeles, CA (Sports Network) - Aaron Harang set a Los Angeles record with nine consecutive strikeouts, one shy of the major league mark, and four consecutive Dodgers walked with two outs in the ninth inning to salvage a 9-8 win over the San Diego Padres on Friday.

"It's pretty cool to set the record when you consider all the history of the Dodger organization," Harang said.

Harang finished with a career-high 13 strikeouts while allowing four runs on four hits over 6 1/3 innings, but did not factor in the decision, because Kenley Jansen (2-0) blew his first save of the season by serving up a two-run homer to Chase Headley in the top of the ninth.

But Jansen recorded the win because Mark Ellis, Matt Kemp, James Loney and Andre Ethier were all issued free passes in the home half after Andrew Cashner (0-1) retired Dee Gordon and Tony Gwynn.

"[Cashner] couldn't get in the zone," said Padres manager Bud Black. "After getting the first two outs, it didn't happen for him."

Ellis walked and stole second before Kemp and Loney made it on base. The Paders then turned to Joe Thatcher, who walked Ethier on four pitches.

The Dodgers, who won their fourth in a row and are now 7-1 on the season, also tied a franchise record with 18 strikeouts in a nine-inning game.

Ethier's game-winning trot to first gave him three RBI on the night. He recorded his first two on a single in the third, three batters after Ellis smacked a two-run base hit.

The Dodgers also put four runs on the board in the fourth, beginning with back-to-back doubles from Justin Sellers and A.J. Ellis and capped off by a two-run blast from Kemp. Gwynn scored A.J. Ellis on a hit up the middle.

Will Venable ended Harang's bid for the major league record when he led off the top of the fourth with a homer just over the left-field wall. San Diego put two more on the board in the inning, and added three in the seventh on two walks, a hit batter, two hits and a sacrifice fly.
