Adam Jones went 4-for-4 and drove in two runs in the victory. Chris Davis had an RBI double and Jim Johnson pitched a scoreless ninth for his 39th save of the season.
The Padres, who had won six of eight coming into the game, had an RBI from Yonder Alonso. Edinson Volquez (8-9) took the loss despite a respectable six innings in which he allowed two runs on six hits.
