PHOENIX, Sept. 30 (UPI) -- San Diego Saturday qualified for the National League playoffs with a 3-1 win over Arizona.

Trevor Hoffman earned his 45th save.

Mike Cameron hit a two-run homer; Josh Bard hit a run-scoring infield single; while Dave Roberts scored a run and had two of the six hits for the Padres (87-74), who are tied with the Dodgers for the top spot in the NL West after a split of their last four games.
