Recap: San Diego vs. Philadelphia

San Diego, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - Alexi Amarista smacked a two-run homer among his three hits and the San Diego Padres topped the Philadelphia Phillies, 5-4, in the second test of a four-game set.

Rymer Liriano posted three hits and scored a run for San Diego, which has taken the first two games of the series.

Ian Kennedy (11-13) allowed three runs on three hits and four walks with seven strikeouts over six innings, while Kevin Quackenbush yielded a run in the ninth but still notched his fourth save of the season.

"I felt better than what the line score looked liked," Kennedy said.

A.J. Burnett (8-17) surrendered five runs -- four earned -- on eight hits and four walks over 5 2/3 frames for the Phillies. Freddy Galvis belted a two-run shot and Domonic Brown added a solo blast in defeat.

The Phillies led 3-2 before the Padres plated three two-out runs in the sixth to go ahead.

Jake Goebbert worked a two-out walk, stole second and scored when Amarista golfed his two-run shot into the front row of seats in right. Liriano and pinch-hitter Tommy Medica singled before pinch-hitter Jedd Gyorko brought Liriano home with a base hit to give San Diego a 5-3 edge.

Earlier, Will Venable's RBI single and Yasmani Grandal's run-scoring groundout opened the scoring for San Diego in the first.

Philadelphia pushed across a run in the second and two more in the fifth to take the lead.

Brown's solo blast to left in the second got the Phillies on the board, and they led 3-2 following Galvis' two-run shot to right in the fifth.
