LOS ANGELES--Kenta Maeda struck out 12 batters and drove in both runs as the Los Angeles Dodgers beat the San Diego Padres 2-0 on Wednesday night.

The right-hander gave up three hits in 6 2/3 innings and reached double-digit strikeouts for the fifth time in the majors. He finished one short of his career high for Ks set in 2016 against San Diego.

Maeda (5-2) also helped his own cause at the plate with two hits, including a two-out, two-run bloop single to right field in the second. He became the first Dodgers pitcher to have two hits and two RBIs in a game since Zack Greinke in 2014.

Corey Seager also had two hits for the Dodgers, who went 7-2 on their homestand. Four of the wins were shutouts.

Kenley Jansen worked the ninth for his 14th save, aided by a diving play up the middle from second baseman Kike Hernandez. With two runners aboard, Jansen struck out Hunter Renfroe and pinch-hitter Alex Dickerson to end it.

Renfroe hit a game-winning grand slam off Jansen in San Diego on May 5.

Four Dodgers pitchers combined for a season-high 16 strikeouts.

Maeda threw 85 pitches, 64 for strikes. His 22 swinging strikes were the second-most in his career according to Inside Edge, with 14 coming on his slider.

Matt Strahm (1-3) went five innings and allowed two runs on seven hits. The left-hander, who has a 2.33 ERA in five road starts, struck out five.

Eric Hosmer had three of San Diego's four hits. The Padres dropped four of five on their road trip and are 4-7 in their last 11 games overall.
