The Padres jumped out to a 3-0 lead in the fifth, when Denorfia scored on a bases-loaded single by Will Venable, Guzman came in on a fielder's choice and John Baker scored on a throwing error by Dustin Ackley.

San Diego added three more in the sixth, when Carlos Quentin scored on a double by Denorfia, Yonder Alonso came in on a single by Guzman, and Denorfia came in on Baker's one-out single.
