Padres Ride Alonso’s HR To 7-6 Win Over Arizona

Posted By Sam Greenberg On May 4, 2013 @ 12:23 PM In MLB | No Comments

Yonder Alonso hit a go-ahead, two-run homer off Wade Miley in the fifth inning and the San Diego Padres held on to beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 7-6 Friday night for their seventh win in nine games.

With the Padres trailing 3-2, Alonso drove a 2-2 pitch from Miley (2-1) into the Jack Daniel’s Old No. 7 deck in right-center, his fourth. It would have been a home run even in Petco Park’s old configuration. The fences were moved in 11 feet from the home run porch in the right-field corner to the gap in an attempt to make the downtown ballpark play fairer. Jesus Guzman was aboard on a grounder.

The homer made a winner of Jason Marquis (3-2). Marquis allowed three runs and four hits in six innings, struck out five and walked five.
