PHOENIX, April 25 (UPI) -- Stephen Drew's two-run, walk-off homer in the ninth inning Wednesday lifted the Arizona Diamondbacks to a 3-2 win over the San Diego Padres.

Down 2-1 in their last at-bat, Chad Tracy worked a one-out walk and Eric Byrnes popped out before Drew drilled a Trevor Hoffman pitch over the wall in right. Miguel Montero also went deep for the Diamondbacks, who snapped a five-game losing streak.


Hoffman (1-1) took the loss and blew his first save of the season.

Brandon Webb went eight innings for Arizona, allowing two runs on six hits and one walk. He struck out six. Tony Pena (2-1) earned the win by pitching a scoreless top of the ninth.

San Diego starter Jake Peavy matched a career-high by fanning 16 batters as part of a two-hit shutout over seven innings. He came within one strikeout of Tom Seaver's major-league record, but had to settle for a no-decision.

Terrmel Sledge was 3-for-4 with a home run and scored both runs for the Padres, who have dropped two of three. Kevin Kouzmanoff doubled and drove in a run.
