Montero and Parra lift D-Backs over PadresMay 18, 2011 - 7:45 AM
Hudson (4-5) gave up only one run on eight hits and two walks in seven innings, and struck out six. He also added a hit for Arizona, which had dropped the opener of this two-game set on Monday.
"He pitched a good game," said Arizona manager Kirk Gibson. "Got into some jams, but got himself out of it. They were jumping his fastball early, and he started to throw some of the secondary stuff to really get them off that."
Tim Stauffer (0-2) allowed four runs on seven hits and a walk in 5 1/3 innings, and took the loss.
Chris Denorfia had three of San Diego's nine hits, but the Padres had their three-game winning streak broken after going 0-for-6 with runners in scoring position.
Arizona was holding on to a 2-1 lead entering the bottom of the sixth, and then put together a rally to take control. Chris Young doubled with one out to get it started, and after Stauffer hit Montero, Juan Miranda singled to load the bases.
That prompted a pitching change, and Cory Luebke came in from the Padres' bullpen. But Parra still took advantage of the situation with a two-run single to give the Diamondbacks a 4-1 edge.
Luebke struck out the next two batters to get out of the inning, but allowed two runs in the seventh. With runners on the corners and nobody out, Stephen Drew singled to plate a run, but was thrown out trying to reach second base on the play.
Still, Justin Upton was left on third and later scored on Montero's two-out base hit off Pat Neshek.
Armed with a 6-1 lead, Arizona's bullpen closed the game. Aaron Heilman pitched a scoreless eighth before Sam Demel tossed a 1-2-3 ninth.
Jason Bartlett plated San Diego's only run with a sacrifice fly in the first inning, after Denorfia had tripled. Arizona tied the game in the bottom half with Upton's run-scoring groundout, then moved in front on Montero's fourth- inning RBI double.
Eric Patterson had two hits, including a triple, and also walked for the Padres...San Diego closed an eight-game road trip (4-4). It begins an eight- game homestand Wednesday vs. Milwaukee...Arizona improved to 3-13 in games in which it does not homer.
