Padres 7, Diamondbacks 1

Associated Press  |  Last updated June 02, 2012
Jesus Guzman's pinch-hit two-run homer ignited a sixth-run eighth inning and lifted the San Diego Padres to a 7-1 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Friday night. Guzman's shot broke a 1-all tie as San Diego sent 11 batters to the plate in the eighth off three pitchers. He connected on a 1-1 changeup off rookie Wade Miley (6-2) into the left-field stands to help the Padres snapped a six-game losing streak San Diego had managed just three hits off Miley heading into the eighth before Alexi Amarista reached on a one-out bunt single that brought up Guzman. Chris Denorfia singled after Guzman's homer and David Hernandez replaced Miley. Denorfia then scored on Cameron Maybin's triple. After a walk to Yonder Alonso, Carlos Quentin singled in a run. The Padres loaded the bases and scored two more runs on Nick Hundley's sacrifice fly and an error. Miley allowed four runs on six hits in 7 1-3 innings with four strikeouts and no walks as his three-game winning streak was stopped. Andrew Cashner (3-3) pitched the eighth for San Diego, which was coming off a 1-9 road trip. The Padres have worst record in the majors at 18-35. The Diamondbacks went just 1 for 8 with runners in scoring position. Arizona got on the board in the third inning on Miguel Montero's RBI single that scored Aaron Hill. San Diego evened the score at 1-all in the bottom of the inning after Amarista lined a one-out triple into the left-field corner and scored on pitcher Clayton Richard's ground out. Richard allowed one run on seven hits in 6 2-3 innings. The lefty struck out three and walked one. The benches and bullpens emptied briefly in the eighth inning after Chris Young drew a two-out walk off Cashner. Young apparently said something to Cashner after he reached first base. The two started walking toward each other and the benches and bullpens emptied for about 30 seconds before the umpires directed each team off the field. Young attempted to steal second base and was thrown out by Hundley. Notes: Diamondbacks 1B Paul Goldschmidt extended his career-best hitting streak to 10 games. . Miley reached safely on an infield single in the seventh inning to extend his hitting streak to eight games and set a club record for a pitcher. ... Maybin returned to the starting lineup for the first time since Saturday when he sprained his right wrist. . Arizona LF Jason Kubel returned on Friday after being placed on the paternity leave list Wednesday. . Padres closer Huston Street began a rehab assignment Friday night with Single-A Lake Elsinore. . Arizona RHP Daniel Hudson (1-1, 5.48) will face San Diego RHP Edinson Volquez (2-5, 3.46) on Saturday night.
