PHOENIX, April 7 (UPI) -- Everth Cabrera drove in four runs and Chris Young turned in a solid six-inning start in the San Diego Padres' 6-3 win at Arizona Tuesday.

Heath Bell notched his first save of the season in relief of Young (1-0), who gave up just one hit and three walks and struck out five.

Adrian Gonzalez and Will Venable homered for the Padres.

Edwin Jackson (0-1) gave up three runs on five hits over five innings in his first start for Arizona since being acquired from Detroit in an off-season trade.

Cabrera staked the Padres to a 2-0 lead in the second inning with a two-run double. Venable's solo home run in the fourth made it 3-0.

The Padres extended their lead to 5-0 on a two-run triple by Cabrera.

A three-run Arizona seventh off a trio of San Diego relievers made it 5-3. Chris Young drove in one run with a double. Stephen Drew drove in the second run of the inning on a bases-loaded ground out, and Justin Upton brought in the third with a two-out single.

Gonzalez hit his second home run of the season in the ninth to close out the scoring.
