Wolf, Headley lead Padres in rout

Jul 9, 2008 - 5:47 AM By Tim Powers PA SportsTicker Contributing Writer

SAN DIEGO (Ticker) -- Randy Wolf tossed seven strong innings and rookie Chase Headley drove in a career-high four runs to help the San Diego Padres topple the Florida Marlins, 10-1, on Tuesday.

Scott Hairston had three hits, including a three-run homer, to help the Padres snap a nine-game losing streak at Petco Park.

Wolf (6-8) allowed just one run - a solo homer in the first by Jeremy Hermida - on five hits to break a personal four-game losing streak against the opponent that has defeated him the most in his career. The 31-year-old lefthander, who has 12 career losses to the Marlins, struck out seven and walked one.

"I had good extension on my fastball and that definitely worked for me," Wolf said. "Pretty much everything falls into place if I can throw my fastball, and I kind of just went from there. The adjustment I made (after the last start) wasn't that big, but the difference it made was pretty large."

Joe Thatcher and Cla Meredith each hurled one scoreless inning to secure the win.

"The first two innings, I saw (Wolf) maybe not quite as sharp as he was the last five," Padres manager Bud Black said. "I think it seemed to click in there in the middle part of the game. The rhythm came back and he started making pitches. We saw the end result."

After Hermida staked Florida starter Andrew Miller to a 1-0 lead in the first inning, San Diego jumped on the lefthander in the bottom of the frame. Headley's three-run double highlighted the rally to give the Padres a 4-1 advantage.

"Everything got real fast for me, and I wasn't able to throw anything for a strike in the beginning," Miller said. "By the time I figured out how to throw my fastball, I still didn't have any breaking ball. The first inning was just the exact opposite of everything I wanted to do."

Hairston's home run off Doug Waechter sparked a five-run sixth as San Diego put the game out of reach.

"It was nice to kind of get a win where we were comfortable throughout," Headley said. "We haven't had a whole lot of those all year."

Bryan Myrow belted his first major league home run, a pinch-hit solo blast in the seventh, on the same day he was recalled from Class AAA Portland.

"It was good to see Bryan get a home run in his first night here," Hairston said. "It's always great to come in and make an impact. That was big for us, when you have guys contributing right away."

Miller (5-8) yielded four runs on six hits over five innings, dropping his third consecutive decision. He walked four and struck out five.

"Other than (the first), he settled down and kept us in the ballgame," Marlins manager Fredi Gonzalez said of Miller. "There's a learning curve there, and we've seen him real good and other times he's had those (difficult) games. Randy Wolf on the other side, we had some opportunities and he made some pitches when he had to."

Florida's Cody Ross extended his career-best hitting streak to 12 games. Hanley Ramirez went hitless in four at-bats to snap a 14-game hitting streak for the Marlins, who lost for the sixth time in seven games.
