SAN DIEGO (AP) -- Eric Stults pitched seven-hit ball into the seventh inning and Will Venable hit a two-run homer and drove in three runs, leading the resurgent San Diego Padres to a 5-1 win over the Miami Marlins on Tuesday night. Stults (3-2) walked two and struck out four in 6 1-3 innings as the Padres won for the 10th time in 13 games. San Diego, which began the season 5-15 and has won eight of its last nine at Petco Park, improved to 15-18. The Marlins have lost five of seven and have the second worst record in baseball at 10-24. The Padres touched up Miami starter Alex Sanabia (2-5) for four runs in the first two innings, highlighted by Venable's bizarre two-run homer, his fourth of the season. Sanabia, who is from the San Diego area of Chula Vista, left the game with one out in the fifth with right groin tightness and will be reevaluated Wednesday. In the second, Venable hit a fly that confused everyone. Marlins right fielder Marcell Ozuna backed up for what he thought was routine fly ball. Venable hesitated out of the box as he jogged down the first base line. Ozuna then threw up his hands and shook his head looking for the ball that landed seven rows up in the right field porch. Everth Cabrera then drove home Alexi Amarista, who had doubled, with the third run of the second inning. In the first, Cabrera walked, moved to third on a single by Chase Headley and scored on a sacrifice fly by Yonder Alonso, who also had two singles and also stole a base. Marlins second baseman Chris Valaika injured his arm on Alonso's stolen base in the ninth. Alonso slid into Valaika as he was trying to catch the throw from catcher Miguel Olivo. Alonso scored the final run a grounder by Venable. The Marlins scored in the fourth on a leadoff double by Matt Diaz and a two out single by Ozuna. Dale Thayer, Luke Gregerson and Anthony Bass pitched scoreless ball in relief of Stults NOTES: Headley, who extended his hitting streak to 12 games, was caught stealing in the fifth inning to snap the Padres' streak of consecutive stolen bases at 19. . Padres OF Carlos Quentin was not in the starting lineup, but Manger Bud Black said he would start Wednesday afternoon. "You have to use your entire roster," said Black. "You have to manage six months. We thought tonight was a good time to get Will and Alexi in the lineup and use Carlos off the bench." . Marlins OF Juan Pierre, who came into Tuesday night's game tied for the major league lead in stolen bases (12) with a 9-for-9 run in his last 15 games, was not in the starting lineup. "It think he (Pierre) got wore down a bit early in the season when (Giancarlo) Stanton went out he had to play quite a few days in a row and we couldn't give him a day off, but over the last week to 10 days I've got him a couple days off and I think it's helped him," said Marlins manager Mike Redmond. . Marlins starting catcher Rob Brantly was also given the night off as backup catcher Miguel Olivo got to play against his former teammates. Brantly has a tender finger on his throwing hand and Redmond suggested that he would give Brantly another day off Wednesday and there was a scheduled day off on Thursday. . Nick Green, who was designated for assignment on May 2nd, was back with the Marlins Tuesday night as a backup infielder. He replaced INF Donovan Solano, who was placed on 15-day DL with a strained left intercostal. Green made an appearance as a pinch hitter in the seventh.

Amazin’ Moments: Eric Valent Hits For The Cycle

Contributed by Gerry Silverman of MetsMerizedOnline.com Hitting for the cycle has always been one of the more singular batting feats in baseball. It is a relatively rare occurrence but not one that guarantees anything in particular for the team of the player who achieves one beyond a mention on the sports page. Granted, it involves getting four hits (a good thing) with three being...

MLB home run perplexes MLB players and announcers

This clip comes to us by way of last night's Padres-Marlins game.  A routine Will Venable home run turns into a blooper reel moment.  Marlins right fielder Marcell Ozuna has no idea where the ball is.  The Padres play by play man (not Dick Enberg, I believe it's Andy Masur, but I'm not sure) has no idea where the ball is.  Heck, even Venable himself has no idea where...
