(AP) Will Venable homered and drove in three runs, Robbie Erlin pitched six effective innings in his return to the majors and the San Diego Padres avoided a three-game sweep with a 5-1 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Wednesday night.


Venable drove in the first of the Padres' two runs off Wade Miley (9-9) in the first inning and gave them a cushion with a two-run homer in the eighth. He's hitting .390 with eight homers in August and has an eight-game hitting streak.


Jesus Guzman also homered and had two RBIs for the Padres. Erlin (2-2) was sharp after being called up from Triple-A Tucson, holding the Diamondbacks to a run and six hits.


Willie Bloomquist had three hits, drove in a run and made some tough plays at shortstop in his first game off the disabled list for Arizona, which had its five-game home winning streak end.
