Villanueva homers twice to power Padres past Dodgers 7-5

LOS ANGELES (AP) Christian Villanueva always dreamed of being the best at whatever he does as a baseball player. If he wants to become known as one of the game's best power hitters, he's off to a good start.

Villanueva homered twice for his 13th and 14th home runs and Jose Pirela hit the go-ahead single in the seventh inning, leading the San Diego Padres to a 7-5 comeback victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Saturday night.

Villanueva leads big league rookies in home runs. And although it's just May, he has made history with the most homers in his rookie season than any other Mexican-born player.
