CINCINNATI, Aug. 14 (UPI) -- James Darnell knocked in a pair of runs and Orlando Hudson cracked an RBI triple Sunday, boosting the San Diego Padres to a 7-3 spanking of Cincinnati.

Darnell finished with two hits and Jason Bartlett added two hits and an RBI for San Diego, which avoided a three-game sweep at Great American Ball Park.

Wade LeBlanc (1-2) limited the Reds to three runs on two hits over six frames, recording his first victory of the season.

Reds starter Dontrelle Willis (0-3), meanwhile, was rocked for four runs over 2 2/3 innings before exiting with forearm soreness in his left pitching arm.

The team said the veteran hurler will be evaluated Monday.

Cincinnati saw its four-game winning streak snapped despite a three-run homer from Jay Bruce.
