BALTIMORE (AP) — Matt Kemp doubled to spark a four-run seventh inning against the Baltimore bullpen, and the San Diego Padres overcame two home runs and five RBIs by Pedro Alvarez in a 10-7 victory over the Orioles on Tuesday night.
Kemp had four hits and Derek Norris homered for the last-place Padres, who have scored at least five runs in six straight games for the first time since 2011.
San Diego trailed 6-3 before batting around in the seventh. Kemp got things started with a double off Mychal Givens (5-1), who failed to retire any of the five batters he faced.
After Givens issued a bases-loaded walk to Norris, Oliver Drake immediately uncorked a wild pitch to let in the tying run before Christian Bethancourt delivered a run-scoring grounder.
Kevin Quackenbush (5-3) earned the win with one inning of scoreless relief and Fernando Rodney got four outs for his 15th save, retiring Adam Jones with the bases loaded in the eighth with the score 7-6.
