Dodgers walk away with win over Padres

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.

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 Either were all issued free passes in the home half after Andrew Cashner (0-1) retired Dee Gordon and Tony Gwynn.
