Weaver (6-1), who improved to 11-3 in 19 interleague starts and 6-0 in his last nine, allowed two runs and three hits in seven innings. Two of Weaver’s three walks were issued to lead off the seventh, but he limited the damage to a run-scoring fielder’s choice by Alexi Amarista.

Will Venable homered for the Padres (14-26), who have the worst record in the National League.

Jeff Suppan (2-2) allowed four runs on six hits and walked five in five innings. The rough outing nearly doubled his ERA from 1.69 to 3.00.

The Angels scored three runs in the fifth inning to take a 4-0 lead and put the game away with three more in the ninth.
