Cashner sharp as Padres best Phillies

Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) - Jedd Gyorko went 3-for-5 with an RBI and three runs scored as the San Diego Padres took an 8-2 win over the Philadelphia Phillies to open a three-game set.

Chase Headley, Ronny Cedeno and Rene Rivera each drove in two runs for the Padres, who have won four straight. Andrew Cashner (9-8) won for the first time since Aug. 2 as he gave up two runs on four hits with a walk and seven strikeouts in 7 2/3 innings.

Cody Asche hit a solo home run while Cesar Hernandez also had an RBI for the Phillies, who came into the game off a three-game sweep of the Braves. Tyler Cloyd (2-4) was tagged for seven runs on nine hits over four-plus innings.

The Padres got on the board in the first as Gyorko doubled with two outs and Headley followed with a single to right for a 1-0 lead.

In the fourth, Gyorko led off with a single and Kyle Blanks had a base hit two batters later. Cedeno chased one home with a double and Rivera followed with a two-run double for a 4-0 lead.

San Diego kept pouring it on with four more runs in the fifth. Gyorko singled in a run and Headley followed later with a single off Zach Miner to plate another runner. RBI singles from Blanks and Cedeno later in the inning made it an 8-0 game.

Asche's solo home run in the fifth, a shot to center, made it an 8-1 contest.

The Phillies got another run across in the eighth as Cesar Hernandez walked with the bases loaded to force in a run, but Michael Martinez struck out to end the frame.
