With the game scoreless in the fourth inning, the Red Sox put David Ortiz, Mike Napoli and Jarrod Saltalamacchia aboard with two outs and Snyder belted a pitch that hit high off the left field wall, scoring all three runners.

Julio Iglesias later added a run-scoring single as the American League East-leading Red Sox took the opener of a three-game interleague set.

Rookie Robbie Erlin (1-1) absorbed his first major league defeat in his third career start for the Padres, surrendering three runs on five hits over 3 2/3 innings.

Jesus Guzman socked a solo homer for San Diego.
