SAN DIEGO (AP) -- Dan Haren pitched seven solid innings, Chad Tracy and Mark Reynolds each drove in two runs and the Arizona Diamondbacks beat the San Diego Padres 7-3 Wednesday night.
Haren (11-5) gave up a leadoff home run to Jody Gerut, but went on to win his third straight start.
The NL West leaders are 5-1 on a 10-game road trip that concludes with a four-game series against the second-place Los Angeles Dodgers beginning tonight.
Arizona used a four-run fifth inning to overcome a 3-1 deficit. Tracy had the big hit with a two-run single that put the Diamondbacks ahead 5-3 knocking the starting San Diego pitcher out of the game.
