The Padres (8-12) scored less runs than the Miami Marlins (10-8) in the finale of three games at Petco Park, 7-3.

Luis Perdomo (0-0, 6.97) shut the Marlins out for five innings, but began the sixth inning with a single by Martin Prado, a walk to Christian Yelich, and an RBI single to Giancarlo Stanton. Craig Stammen relieved Perdomo and gave up a double to Marcell Ozuna that scored Yelich, a single to score Stanton, and Justin Bour topped it all off with a three-run home run. All with no outs. Kevin Quackenbush replaced Stammen and retired the next three batters to finish the inning. Perdomo’s final line was five innings pitched with four hits, three walks, and five strikeouts. In the ninth inning, Dee Gordon led off with a triple and scored two batters later on Yelich’s sacrifice fly.

In the fourth inning, Hunter Renfroe hit a two-run home run to dead center field.
