San Diego, CA (Sports Network) - Adrian Gonzalez stared down his long fly ball after it left his bat in the ninth inning.

The 225-pound first baseman followed the ball from the moment it left Huston Street's hand as a slider to when it found the sweet spot of his bat until it ultimately disappeared into the right-field seats.

Gonzalez eventually commenced a slow trot around the bases after hitting the home run that led the Dodgers to a 3-1 win over the San Diego Padres and a split of a four-game series.

Street (0-4) allowed two homers in the final frame, with Hanley Ramirez following Gonzalez's blast with an opposite-field shot to right field to give the Dodgers a two-run edge.

Los Angeles spoiled Andrew Cashner's stellar outing. Cashner took a no decision despite holding Los Angeles to one run on five hits over eight innings.

Dodgers starter Chris Capuano also took a no decision after tossing five scoreless frames. The left-hander gave up four hits and struck out five without yielding a walk.
