LOUIS -- St. http://www.cheapredsoxjerseys.com/?tag=cheap-chris-sale-jersey .ca looks back at the stories and moments that made the year memorable. LOS ANGELES -- Scott Van Slyke became the fourth Dodgers player to match Matt Kemps season total for home runs since the two-time All-Star slugger hit his first of the year April 24 in New York. Thats still the only one Kemp has after 137 at-bats. Kemp had two singles for Los Angeles on Sunday in a 5-3 victory over the Miami Marlins, giving him 1,000 career hits and extending his hitting streak to 11 games. But manager Don Mattingly insists its only a matter of time before the homers come in bunches for Kemp, who hit a career-high 39 in 2011. "I feel like hes still going to hit his homers," Mattingly said. "Theyre going to come, but when youre forcing them, they dont seem to come. Thats the one thing I dont want him to do -- try to force home runs. When hes having good swings and starts to get his hits, the power is right there with it." Dodgers starter Chris Capuano (1-2) allowed a run and five hits in 6 1-3 innings with seven strikeouts and one walk. Last Monday, in his second start of the season and first off the disabled list, the left-hander gave up six runs over four innings against Arizona and threw a mini-tantrum in the dugout after being taken out. "Its been a bit of a nightmare the past week. Its nice to wake up from it," Capuano said. "I was trying to watch some of the good games I had last year, look at what I did to be successful and try to stick with my strengths instead of worrying about getting to the hitters weaknesses. I think its a good approach with any lineup, not trying to get too caught up in a hitters weaknesses. I had a pretty good changeup working today. And with the humidity and the moisture, I had that pitch working." Capuano started against the Marlins for the first time since last Aug. 12, when he threw eight innings of two-hit ball in a 5-0 win at Miami. "The last time I remember him being a little more fastball-friendly, to be honest. Today he just kind of off-speeded us to death and did a good job mixing his pitches," said Marlins centre fielder Justin Ruggiano, who homered off Capuano in the sixth. "We swung at a lot of pitches we shouldnt have been swinging at, so that shows you that they were pretty good off-speed pitches. But weve got to take some of the blame for that, too, because weve got to get the ball up on him." Brandon League finished in a non-save situation, giving up a two-run double by Adeiny Hechavarria with two outs in the ninth after allowing a game-deciding home run in each of his previous two appearances. The Dodgers, who ended an eight-game slide Saturday night with a 7-1 victory, took two of three in the series. This is the first time theyve won consecutiive games against the same team since April 10-11 at San Diego. Pedro Martinez Jersey. . Los Angeles remains last in the NL West with a 15-21 record and trails division-leading San Francisco by seven games. "Well, thats two," Mattingly said. "Once youve lost eight in a row, it doesnt sound like much to win a series. But its a start. Thats the way it feels." Van Slyke, recalled from Triple-A on Friday, opened the scoring against rookie Tom Koehler (0-1) with his third big league homer leading off the second. "That home run was off a guy Id actually faced a lot the last two to three years (in the minors)," Koehler said. "He kind of sped up his bat with a cutter right there and he did a good job of staying on it. But the first runs not the one that kills you, so the key there is basically making sure thats the only one. And that team, with all the veterans they have, if you let them start building momentum, they can put up a crooked number real quick." Koehler threw 79 pitches over five innings in his second big league start and first this season, allowing two runs and seven hits. The 26-year-old right-hander was recalled from Triple-A New Orleans on April 19 and made six relief appearances before replacing a struggling Wade LeBlanc in the rotation. Koehler faced a lineup loaded with left-handed hitters except for Kemp, Van Slyke and Tim Federowicz, who were a combined 4 for 7 against him. During his stint in the bullpen, righties were 1 for 23. "I dont feel much different than if I would have been starting consistently. So I guess thats a good sign, and now I can build off it," Koehler said. After Nick Puntos sacrifice fly gave Los Angeles a 2-0 lead in the fourth, Ruggiano got the Marlins on the board in the sixth with his seventh homer -- all on the road. The Dodgers extended the margin to 5-1 during a three-run seventh, as Mike Dunn gave up RBI singles to Van Slyke and Carl Crawford and a bases-loaded sacrifice fly by Andre Ethier that followed an intentional walk to Kemp. The first two runs in the inning were charged to Jon Rauch. NOTES: Miami RF Marcell Ozuna turned Kemps first-inning fly ball into a double play with a perfect, one-hop throw to third to get Crawford after he tagged up. ... Marlins reserve OF Austin Kearns, who has eight hits in 14 career at-bats against Capuano, was moved from the bereavement list to the restricted list. He will be spending more time with his mother, who had a heart attack on May 5. ... Dodgers 1B Adrian Gonzalez, who is 14 for 28 with runners in scoring position, got the day off because of persistent discomfort in his neck, which affects him in the field but not at the plate.
