Erlin pitches Padres past D-backs

Phoenix, AZ (Sports Network) - Robbie Erlin sparkled in his return from the minors by pitching six solid innings and the San Diego Padres got home runs from Will Venable and Jesus Guzman in a 5-1 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Erlin (2-2), who was recalled from Triple-A Tucson and made his fifth major league start, allowed six hits and a run to help the Padres avoid a three-game sweep. The left-hander was taking the spot of the recently released Edinson Volquez.

Guzman had three hits and Venable knocked in three runs, as the Padres bounced back from a heart-breaking 10-9 loss in 10 innings Tuesday night.

Wade Miley (9-9) allowed seven hits and a pair of runs over seven innings.

Willie Bloomquist, who was activated from the 15-day disabled list prior to the game, went 3-for-4 and drove in the only run for the Diamondbacks.
