LOS ANGELES (AP) Brandon McCarthy won his second straight start after a 14-month recovery from Tommy John surgery, and the Los Angeles Dodgers scored a disputed run to beat the San Diego Padres 4-3 on Saturday.
McCarthy (2-0) gave up three runs in five innings, including a first-inning, two-run homer by Yangervis Solarte.
The right-hander retired 10 of the next 12 hitters, holding the Padres to a pair of walks. McCarthy's win came six days after he threw five scoreless innings in his return from major surgery.

Kenley Jansen pitched a scoreless ninth for his 26th save.
It was 3-all in the fifth when Corey Seager scored from second base on a throwing error by shortstop Alexei Ramirez as he tried to complete a double play. The Padres challenged that Justin Turner made a wide slide into Ramirez, but replay upheld the original call that it was a legal play.
