Kemp, Alonso, Wallace homer in Padres' 3-1 win over Marlins

SAN DIEGO (AP) Matt Kemp, Yonder Alonso and Brett Wallace all homered to back seven strong innings from Andrew Cashner and lead the San Diego Padres to a 3-1 victory over the Miami Marlins on Friday night.

Wallace hit his first homer with San Diego leading off the fourth to tie the game at 1-all. Alonso and Kemp hit back-to-back homers in the fifth to make it 3-1.

Cashner (4-10) allowed a first-inning RBI double by Justin Bour, then clamped down on the Marlins as he ended their season-best three-game road win streak.

Joaquin Benoit pitched the eighth and Craig Kimbrel got the final three outs, including retiring Ichiro Suzuki on a grounder for the final out with runners on first and second. It was Kimbrel's 27th save in 28 chances.

Cashner hadn't pitched since July 8 because his last start on Sunday was rained out after he threw 4 2-3 innings. The right-hander, who lost eight of his previous 10 decisions, gave up five hits, struck out five and walked one.

The home runs by Alonso and Kemp came on consecutive pitches from Dan Haren (7-6). It marked the first time the Padres have hit back-to-back homers since July 27, 2013, at Arizona.

Kemp, who also had a double, continued his recent hot streak. Over his last 12 games, Kemp is hitting .386 (15 for 44) with five homers, six doubles, 11 RBIs and seven multi-hit games.

The Padres snapped a three-game losing streak during which they were outscored 20-4 and had just 13 hits.

Haren allowed three runs and eight hits over six innings. He has given up five home runs in his last two starts after having allowed just two homers over a five-game stretch.

Haren has one win over his last nine starts.
