PHOENIX (AP) -- Ryan Ludwick homered and drove in three runs, Clayton Richard pitched into the sixth inning to end a four-game losing streak and the San Diego Padres beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 8-4 Monday night.
Cameron Maybin and Jason Bartlett had two RBIs apiece as the Padres roughed up Armando Galarraga (3-4) for five runs in the first two innings, giving Richard (2-4) plenty of cushion to earn his first win since April 2.
Chase Headley had three hits and drove in a run, and Mike Adams got the final five outs for his first save to give San Diego its fourth win in five games.
Henry Blanco hit a pair of solo homers and Justin Upton led off the eighth inning with his eighth of the season for Arizona in its seventh loss in 10 games.
