Perdomo pitches Diamondbacks to 9-1 win over Padres
SAN DIEGO (AP) Luis Perdomo ended a three-start losing streak, Travis Jankowski and Alex Dickerson homered, and the San Diego Padres defeated the Arizona Diamondbacks 9-1 Sunday for a four-game split.
Perdomo (6-7) took a shutout into the seventh and wound up allowing an unearned run and five hits in seven innings. Perdomo, a right-hander who had never pitched above Class A before this season, also beat the Diamondbacks at Arizona on July 4.
Arizona didn't have a runner in scoring position until the seventh and Phil Gosselin got there on a throwing error by Perdomo. Brandon Drury, who had two of Arizona's five hits, singled in Gosselin to cut the Diamondbacks' deficit to 7-1.
Alexei Ramirez added a two-run double in the eighth.
Braden Shipley (2-3) gave up seven runs and seven hits over 5 1/3 innings in a matchup of the teams with the poorest records in the NL West.
Jankowski, who has reached in a career-best 20 games, hit his second home run of the season in the second inning for a 2-0 lead. Adam Rosales had an RBI triple in the fifth and scored on a double by Perdomo, the first RBI by the pitcher in 25 career big league at-bats.
Dickerson's leadoff homer in the sixth and Brett Wallace's RBI double made it 6-0 and chased Shipley. Patrick Kivlehan singled in a run against Dominic Leone.
Diamondbacks: RHP Rubby De La Rosa (right elbow) will resume a throwing program, with the team seeking to build him up to 70 pitches for some September starts.
Padres: CF Jon Jay (broken right arm) took some swings off the tee on Sunday. He could return to the club in early September.
Diamondbacks: RHP Zack Godley (4-2) starts Monday in the opener of a four-game series against visiting Atlantas. Godley defeated the New York Mets on Wednesday, allowing two runs in a career-high 7 1/3 innings.
Padres: RHP Edwin Jackson (3-3) opens a three-game series Monday against the visiting Chicago Cubs. Jackson allowed a season-high eight runs over four innings in a loss to Tampa Bay on Tuesday.
