PHOENIX (AP) -

Josh Collmenter came two outs away from a complete game, holding the San Diego Padres without an earned run on four hits over 8 1-3 innings in the Arizona Diamondbacks' 5-1 win Friday night.

Collmenter (9-7) also tied his career high for strikeouts with eight and did not walk a batter. The Diamondbacks' victory ended a six-game losing streak.

Arizona scored three first-inning runs - two on a Miguel Montero home run -- and added another in the second inning on a two-out error by Padres second baseman Jedd Gyorko.

Odrisamer Despaigne (3-5) settled down after a rough start, but took the loss after going five innings and allowing three earned runs on five hits.
