July 20, 2013 at 11:36 PM

ST. LOUIS, July 20 (UPI) -- Edinson Volquez went five innings for the victory and San Diego's bullpen combined for four scoreless frames Saturday in a 5-3 Padres win over St. Louis.

Volquez (7-8) pitched well enough to earn the decision, limiting the Cardinals to three runs on four hits. The right-hander walked one and struck out one, breaking a personal two-start losing streak.

Nick Vincent, Dale Thayer and Joe Thatcher each fired a scoreless inning of relief and Huston Street turned in a 1-2-3 ninth for his 16th save as the Padres evened their three-game series.

Carlos Quentin went 2-for-4 with an RBI while Everth Cabrera, Jedd Gyorko and Nick Hundley each drove in a run for the winners.

The Cards' Lance Lynn (11-5) was tagged with the loss after giving up four runs on six hits over five innings.

Allen Craig drove in two runs for National League Central-leading St. Louis.
