Robbie Ray took a shutout into the eighth inning, David Peralta had four hits, and the Arizona Diamondbacks beat the San Diego Padres 9-1 Saturday night for their fifth straight win.
Ray (3-3) limited the Padres to just two hits and three walks while striking out six in 7 2/3 innings. Tom Wilhelmsen struck out Wil Myers with the bases loaded in the eighth, and J.J. Hoover allowed the Padres' lone run on an infield single by Allen Cordoba in the ninth.
Paul Goldschmidt had a two-run single in the Diamondbacks' five-run first inning as the first four batters got hits against Luis Perdomo (0-1). Jake Lamb had an RBI double and Chris Herrmann added a two-run homer in the inning.
Lamb and Chris Owings each had two hits in the game, and only Rey Fuentes went hitless from San Diego's starting lineup.
Yasmany Tomas had a two-run single in the second and Lamb's run-scoring single in the fourth made it 8-0. Lamb also scored on a wild pitch in the ninth.
Arizona got off to a fast start for the second straight game, a day after scoring eight runs in the first in the series opener Friday night. The Diamondbacks have outscored the Padres 19-2 in the first two games of the weekend series.
Perdomo allowed a career-high eight runs in three-plus innings while walking one and striking out two.
Cory Spangenberg had two of the three hits for the Padres, who have lost five straight.
