MIAMI (AP) -- Will Venable drove in three runs and saved one with a diving catch in right field Friday night to help the San Diego Padres beat Ricky Nolasco and the Miami Marlins, 9-2. Logan Forsythe hit a two-run homer for the Padres and had three of their 15 hits. Edinson Volquez (6-6) gave up two runs in six innings for the Padres, who have outscored Miami 20-3 this season while winning all four games. Nolasco (4-8), the subject of trade speculation, allowed six runs and 11 hits in five-plus innings to match or surpass his worst effort of the season in all three categories. The Marlins' loss snapped a three-game winning streak that matched their longest this year. Nolasco is on the market because he is by far the highest-paid player for cost-conscious Miami, and he becomes a free agent after the season. San Diego is among the teams believed to be interested in the right-hander, who is the franchise leader in career victories. The Marlins' loss snapped a three-game winning streak that matched their longest this year. It was the first time in the past 11 games that they've allowed more than three runs. Miami managed at least one hit in each of the first eight innings but went 0 for 6 with runners in scoring position. Volquez struck out eight, including six looking, and lowered his ERA to 5.50. He also singled and scored. The Padres made it 1-all in the second when Chase Headley singled, stole second and scored on Venable's two-out single, the first of his three hits. They took the lead for good in the third when Volquez singled and Forsythe hit his third homer. With San Diego ahead 3-2, Miami had a runner at second base when Venable charged forward and made a diving catch of Nolasco's soft fly to end the fourth inning. The Padres ended Nolasco's night with four consecutive hits to start the sixth. Yasmani Grandal and Venable hit RBI singles, and another run scored on an error by shortstop Adeiny Hechavarria. Giancarlo Stanton singled with two out in Miami's first inning and came home on a triple by Logan Morrison. Stanton doubled home a run in the third. NOTES: Padres 2B Jedd Gyorko, who aggravated his strained right groin while on a rehabilitation assignment Wednesday with Double-A San Antonio, rejoined the Padres to undergo treatment and is expected to miss at least a few more games. He said he felt much better than when he was first hurt June 9. ... San Diego SS Everth Cabrera (strained hamstring) took part in pregame drills and might come off the disabled list Tuesday, the first day he's eligible to return. He's expected to go on a brief rehabilitation assignment before being activated. ... The barrel of Morrison's shattered bat flew into the 13th row when he grounded out in the eighth, but no one was hurt. ... The Padres signed OF Jordan Paroubeck, the 69th overall selection in this month's draft, and have signed 18 of their first 19 picks. ... Headley is 8 for 18 (.444) against Nolasco.
