Aaron Harang continued his great pitching against the Dodgers this season, pitching eight scoreless innings to lead the Padres over the Dodgers 3-0 on Saturday night at Petco Park in San Diego. Harang entered tonight allowing one earned run on three hits in 12 innings against the Dodgers this season, and it was more of the same tonight, as the Dodgers managed just three hits and no walks against the right-hander in eight innings.

Matt Kemp singled in his first at-bat, but went hitless the rest of the game, including a double play against Heath Bell to end it in the ninth inning. Kemp did have a 400-foot flyout to center field in the sixth inning. Here is the updated look at the triple crown stats.

Batting Average Home Runs RBI
Ryan Braun .3309 Matt Kemp 37 Matt Kemp 119
Jose Reyes .3295 Albert Pujols 37 Ryan Howard 114
Matt Kemp .3253 Uggla / Fielder
35 Prince Fielder 114

Both Jerry Sands (12 games) and Dee Gordon (11 games) extended their career-high hitting streaks on Saturday.

Clayton Kershaw looks to lock up the National League Cy Young Award in Sunday's series finale. Cory Luebke pitches for the Padres.
