Recap: San Diego vs. Houston

San Diego, CA (Sports Network) - Yonder Alonso tallied two hits, including a two-run homer, to go with three RBI and two runs scored as the San Diego Padres downed the Houston Astros, 8-2, in the second installment of a four- game set.

Cameron Maybin registered three hits, two RBI and a run scored, while Yasmani Grandal added a pair of hits, an RBI and a run scored for San Diego, which has won three of its last four on the heels of a four-game skid.

"Well played offensively," San Diego manager Bud Black. "We had some good at- bats, I think we took what Lyles gave us."

Ross Ohlendorf (3-0) fanned six and surrendered two runs -- one earned -- on six hits and one walk in six innings.

Jordan Lyles (2-6) was charged with five runs on 11 hits and two walks in six innings for Houston, which has dropped 14 of its last 16 contests. Marwin Gonzalez recorded three hits and scored a run.

"The biggest thing Jordan got off to a good start through those four innings and then he had those four straight hits...then they kind of got to our bullpen a little bit," Houston manager Brad Mills said.

With the game tied 2-2 after four, the Padres plated six unanswered runs -- two in the fifth, one in the sixth and three in the seventh -- to seize control of the contest.

Logan Forsythe slapped a one-out single to right-center and scored when Chase Headley hammered a double to left in the sixth. Headley came home two batters later on Grandal's base hit up the middle to make it 4-2 in favor of San Diego.

Alexi Amarista smacked an RBI single to left in the sixth, while Alonso's RBI double to deep center and Maybin's two-run ground-rule double to left made it 8-2 in the seventh.

Earlier, Houston struck first in the second on Carlos Corporan's RBI groundout, but San Diego retaliated and took the lead in the bottom half on Alonso's two-run blast to left.

The Astros got the run back in the third on J.D. Martinez's run-scoring base hit to left.

Game Notes

San Diego was 5-for-9 with runners in scoring position while Houston finished 1-for-6...Alonso's homer was his fourth of the season...Jordan Schafer stole a base for Houston, giving him 23 on the year.
