[R] Plot: Distance between tick and tick label on y-axis

Hello,

I want to reduce the distance between my ticks and their labels. I managed to do it for the x-axis, but the y-axis puzzles me. Here's an example where there is no space between the x-asix ticks and labels.

par(las=1)

plot(runif(50), type="l",xaxt="n",yaxt="n",ylab="", bty="l")
axis(2)
axis(1,padj=-1.5)

#However,
axis(2,padj=-1.5) #does not work

I understand from ?axis that padj will take its direction from the par(las). In this case, padj will move labels up and down for both x-axis and y-axis. I want my y-axis labels to be horizontal.

I can I reduce the distance between y-axis ticks and labels?
