LOS ANGELES (AP) - Adrian Gonzalez hit a tying single in the seventh inning, pinch-hitter Mark Ellis singled home the go-ahead run in the eighth and the Los Angeles Dodgers rallied to beat the San Diego Padres 2-1 on Saturday night.

Just as the game ended, the Dodgers announced they had acquired third baseman Michael Young from the Philadelphia Phillies for minor league lefty Rob Rasmussen.

The Dodgers ended August with a 23-6 record, their most wins in a month since moving to Los Angeles in 1958. The club record of 25 was set in July 1947 and equaled in August 1953, when the team played in Brooklyn.

Brian Wilson (1-0) came on in relief to earn the victory - his first since joining the Dodgers last week. Kenley Jansen pitched the ninth for his 23rd save in 25 chances.

Nick Vincent (3-2) took the loss, allowing two hits on nine pitches in the eighth after relieving starter Andrew Cashner.

Dodgers starter Chris Capuano allowed one run and eight hits in seven innings, struck out seven and walked one.

Skip Schumaker led off the eighth with a double and was sacrificed to third by Tim Federowicz. Schumaker scored on Ellis' single to center, one of the Dodgers' 13 hits, equaling their amount in Friday's series-opening win.

The Dodgers tied it at 1 on Gonzalez's RBI single with one out in the seventh. Pinch-hitter Jerry Hairston Jr. and Carl Crawford opened the inning with singles.

Cashner intentionally walked Andre Ethier to load the bases before Juan Uribe grounded out to end the inning.

Ronny Cedeno homered with two outs in the fourth for the Padres.

Cashner gave up one run and 10 hits while striking out seven and walking three. The Padres, who had 10 hits, have lost seven of nine.

NOTES: Dodgers OF Matt Kemp was set to be the DH again at Class-A Rancho Cucamonga on Saturday and Sunday. Kemp has been on the DL since July 24 with a sprained left ankle. ``His timing doesn't sound very good yet,'' manager Don Mattingly said. ``It's hard to jump in at 94-95 (mph) when you haven't seen it in a while. Matt wants to be swinging the ball good when he comes back.'' ... The Padres activated OF Kyle Blanks from the 15-day DL and optioned RHP Anthony Bass to Triple-A Tucson. Blanks was 1 for 11 with a run scored and a walk in four rehab games. ... Padres 3B Chase Headley, who left Friday's game in the fifth inning with back stiffness, didn't show much improvement overnight so he didn't play.
