SAN DIEGO -- Adrian Gonzalez hit a three-run homer and Miguel Tejada had a two-run shot as the San Diego Padres beat the last-place Arizona Diamondbacks 9-3 on Wednesday night to take a season-high 6 1/2-game lead atop the National League West.

David Eckstein had three hits and three runs, and Tejada also scored three runs to help San Diego improve to an NL-best 76-49.

Arizona's Stephen Drew went 4 for 4 with two solo homers.
  
Drew winds up with home run after replay reversal
  
Drew wound up with a leadoff home run Wednesday night after umpires used instant replay to reverse the original call at Petco Park.

Drew led off the game against San Diego with a ball into the right-field corner. First base umpire Ted Barrett signaled fair ball as the shot off Padres lefty Wade LeBlanc ricocheted back onto the field and Drew pulled into second base.

The umpires huddled, then went to review video. Replays showed that the ball hit off a seat.

It was Drew's ninth home run.
