Los Angeles, CA (Sports Network) - Matt Kemp hit a pair of two-run home runs to help the Los Angeles Dodgers spoil the major league debut of Padres prospect Joe Wieland in 6-1 fashion on Saturday.

Kemp finished 3-for-4 and Andre Ethier contributed a solo homer for the red- hot Dodgers, who have won five in a row to open the season with an 8-1 record. That's their best start since 1981 when they began 9-1, on the way to the franchise's fifth World Series title.

Wieland (0-1) gave up six runs, all in the first two innings. His complete line included six hits, two walks and one strikeout in five full innings.

Ted Lilly (1-0) tossed seven frames, allowing just one unearned run on two hits and one walk while striking out four in his first start of the year. Lilly began the season on the disabled list because of neck stiffness.
