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.
