Recap


Padres 4, Cardinals 2:
Will Venable homered and Jason Marquis won his fifth straight start by outpitching phenom Shelby Miller as host San Diego defeated St. Louis.

Chris Denorfia had three hits, including the tying hit in the sixth, as the Padres won for the 16th time in 24 games. The Cardinals dropped to 13-5 in May.

Jason Marquis (6-2) gave up two runs – one earned – and three hits in six innings. Four relievers blanked St. Louis over the final three innings with Huston Street working a perfect ninth for his 11th save in 12 opportunities.

Miller (5-3) entered the contest with a 1.40 ERA but lasted just 5 2/3 innings and was charged with three runs and five hits. He departed with a 2-1 lead after walking two batters in the sixth before Denorfia smacked a game-tying single off Fernando Salas and Jesus Guzman was hit by a pitch with the bases loaded.

Chase Headley had a run-scoring single in the first for San Diego but committed an error with the bases loaded in the second to allow the Cardinals to tie the score. Venable’s homer was a booming shot in the seventh to give the Padres a two-run lead.

GAME NOTEBOOK: Cardinals 3B David Freese was scratched due to a right hand injury. He was spiked in Sunday’s game against Milwaukee. … Six of Venable’s seven homers this season have come at Petco Park. … St. Louis LHP Jaime Garcia (shoulder) is scheduled to visit Dr. James Andrews on Wednesday for a second opinion.
