SAN DIEGO (AP) -- Chris Denorfia hit a two-run homer with one out in the eighth inning Wednesday that carried the San Diego Padres to a 2-1 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks, who had been the last unbeaten team in the major leagues.
Denorfia's clutch shot to straightaway center field -- his first of the season -- came on a 2-1 pitch from David Hernandez (0-1). Cameron Maybin was aboard on a walk.
Center fielder Chris Young lost his glove over the fence trying to make a leaping grab. Someone from the Padres' bullpen retrieved it for him.
Ernesto Frieri (1-0) threw 1 1-3 innings, and Huston Street pitched a perfect ninth for his first save with the Padres.
Until the homer, the Padres had only one baserunner advance as far as second.
Arizona was trying for the first 5-0 start in franchise history.
Hernandez had replaced Joe Saunders, who allowed four hits over seven innings in his season debut. He struck out four and walked two.
