MIAMI, Fla. (AP)
Venable connected on a 2-2 pitch from Brian Sanches (0-1), driving the ball just inside the right-field pole for his eighth homer of the season and breaking a 2-all tie. It was his third tiebreaking homer since Wednesday night and fourth homer in seven games.
Venable also had a two-run, go-ahead homer in the seventh Friday night for the Padres, who have won six of seven. He also broke a tie with a fifth-inning, two-run shot against Tampa Bay on Wednesday.
