PHOENIX (AP) -- Mark Reynolds singled home Justin Upton with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning as the Arizona Diamondbacks edged the San Diego Padres 6-5 in the series opener last night.

Upton drew a two-out walk from Cla Meredith and stole second base before Reynolds lined a single into the left-field corner.

Jon Rauch pitched the ninth for the Diamondbacks, who've won three in a row for the first time since May 20 through 23.

Tony Gwynn Jr. went 4 for 5 with a stolen base and a run scored for the Padres, who lost for the fifth time in six games.

Game 2 of the three-game series is set for 6:40 tonight at Chase Field.
