Domonic Brown hit his 20th home run and tied a career high with four RBIs as the Philadelphia Phillies beat the San Diego Padres 6-2 Tuesday night. Kyle Kendrick (7-4) went eight innings, allowing two runs on seven hits with six strikeouts and no walks to pick up the victory. Jason Marquis (9-3), who had won eight straight decisions over his last 11 starts, went 4 1-3 innings, giving up six runs on six hits, walking five and striking out four to take the loss. He allowed back-to-back walks on eight pitches to Ryan Howard and Brown in the fifth inning, which led to Marquis' exit from the game and contributed to three more runs by the Phillies, who took their 6-2 lead. Philadelphia parlayed singles by Jimmy Rollins and Chase Utley along with three walks, a wild pitch and a sacrifice fly by John Mayberry Jr. for the three runs. Marquis, who hadn't lost a game since April 22 against Milwaukee, leads the majors in walks with 53. He has had four or more walks in 11 of his 16 starts. The Padres have lost five of eight since a season-high seven-game win streak. Brown, who walked with the bases-loaded in the fifth to drive in a run, had hit a three-run homer off Marquis in the third for a 3-2 lead. Rollins walked to lead off the third and stole second. He went to third on a one-out single by Michael Young. Marquis struck out Howard, but Brown hit a 2-0 pitch 411 feet into the right-center field stands. He is second in the NL in homers, one behind Carlos Gonzalez. It was his first homer since June 8, a span of 56 at-bats. He has 54 RBIs. The Padres had taken a 2-0 lead in the bottom of the second. Kyle Blanks singled to right and Yasmani Grandal doubled to left. Alexi Amarista's infield grounder to second scored Blanks, and Pedro Ciriaco's single to left scored Grandal. The Padres threatened in the ninth on Grandal's single and Ciriaco's third hit of the game, a double. But reliever Antonio Bastardo struck out Logan Forsythe for the final out. NOTES: Padres LHP Robbie Erlin (1-0, 4.15 ERA) will be called up from Triple-A Tucson on Wednesday and will make his second major league start against Philadelphia. ''We like we saw when he beat the Blue Jays. He's getting to a point where he's about to break through,'' said Padres manager Bud Black. LHP Cole Hamels (2-11, 4.50 ERA) will pitch for the Phillies in the final game of the series. . Padres 2B Jedd Gyro, on the DL with a right groin strain, flew to San Antonio on Tuesday and will play with the Padres Double-A team Wednesday and Thursday. If all goes well, according to Black, Gyorko would be activated and would join the team Friday in Miami ..Padres 3B Chase Headley batted cleanup Tuesday for the second straight day. However, Black said he will likely not stay there even if he heats up. ''We were hoping a different look would give him a different perspective on the game. I don't think it had anything to do with him getting two hits (on Monday).''. Phillies 1B Ryan Howard returned to the starting lineup after sitting out Monday's game with a sore left knee. Howard was batting .432 over his last 12 games with three home runs and 11 RBIs. . Phillies RHP Carlos Zambrano is scheduled to make another start at Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Friday before the club makes a decision whether to call him up. Zambrano, who last pitched in the majors for the Miami Marlins in 2012, is 1-0 in three starts with Lehigh Valley with a 3.18 ERA, 17 strikeouts and nine walks in 16 innings.

Salisbury Says Yankees Could Be Fit For Ruiz, Utley

Carlos Ruiz returned earlier that week. But in addition to Salisbury noting the scout’s presence, Salisbury called the following out: Three of those players –- Utley, Ruiz and (Michael) Young –- could be of serious interest to the Yankees, who are in the market for catching and corner-infield help. According to a baseball executive, the Yankees have already kicked around Ruiz’s...

Phillies face tough deadline choices

Every time Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr., proclaims, "We're not sellers!" he creates the perception that his franchise is in denial, that the Phils simply will not accept the inevitable transition that lies ahead. David Montgomery, the Phillies' CEO, disputes that perception. He disputes the idea that the team should concede in late June. And he disputes...

Haiku-arrhea: Week 12 in Padres Baseball

In an effort to stay close to our roots, the staff at Padres Public, will offer-up a haiku each Monday to describe the previous week in Padres Baseball. Restricting our feelings to 3 lines and 17 syllables to describe a week of play is a massive undertaking, but (un) fortunately, we are more than up to the task. The Padres started off the week great in San Francisco and then dropped...

Baseball Prospectus Releases ‘Mid-Season Top 50 Prospects’ List

Jason parks of Baseball Prospectus released his Prospects Will Break Your Heart: Mid-Season Top 50 Prospects list today and in it we see movement from the following Padres properties: Austin Hedges: From #19 to #13 Max Fried: From #61 to #47 Yes? Yes! That could have been the battery for UCLA in last night’s College World Series championship game. Sorry UCLA, I’m not sorry.

Led by Kendrick, Phillies rebound from tough loss

One night after perhaps the most devastating loss of their sub-par season, the Phillies were clicking on all cylinders as timely hitting, lights-out starting pitching, and crisp fielding led the Phils to a 6-2 win over the Padres. The Phillies have now won 22 of their last 29 games against the Padres, and have won 13 of their last 16 at Petco Park. Brown crushes 20th homer, drives...

The Phillies refuse to admit they are not contenders

The Philadelphia Phillies are 36-41 and have the second-worst run differential in the National League (and the third worst in baseball). They are eight games back in the NL East and nine games back for the NL Wild Card. By every appearance the Phillies are not a team in contention for a playoff berth and thus should be seriously considering selling off parts of their roster to begin...

Phils Lose to Padres in Disastrous Fashion

Us too, Cliff. This game marks the 1,000th game that Chase Utley and Jimmy Rollins have played together. They both acknowledged that there was a delay in reaching the milestone because of injuries. Cliff Lee pitched an absolutely great game tonight. He went 8 innings, had 8 hits, 1 walk,...

While You Were Drinking: Game 79 (SD vs. PHI)

Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after a night in the pub. Here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking. The Padres lost to the Phillies last night, 7-5 in 13 innings dropping them below .500 (39-40) for the first time in over a week. The good news is that Robbie Erlin was fantastic and the teams ahead of and even with (Arizona, Colorado)...

The Matt Harvey Express Rolls Over the Phillies

If the opponents in the National league east have not become impressed with Matt Harvey, the Philadelphia Phillies have. David Wright had a up close and personal view of the Philly hitters as the Mets ace (Yes I said since earlier this season, he is the ace) made believers of the Phillies. Wright knew it was going to be a good day. He saw the surprise on Jimmy Rollins’ face after...

What Would Happen? Dick Enberg Edition

Last night, on Fox Sports San Diego‘s Social Media Tuesday, reporter Megan Olivi made a comment that her next major project would be getting Dick Enberg to sign up and use Twitter. This led @Tater1021 to tweet the following: Thanks to @meganOlivi, I am now trying to imagine #TweetsFromEnberg — Nathan Z (@Taterz1021) June 26, 2013 @MeganOlivi I smell a SMT topic when he returns...
