The SportsXchange

PHILADELPHIA - Andrew Cashner won for the first time in five weeks and Chase Headley and Jedd Gyorko each went 3-for-5 Tuesday night as the San Diego Padres beat the Philadelphia Phillies 8-2 for their fourth straight victory.

Cashner (9-8), whose last victory came over the New York Yankees on Aug. 2, pitched 7 2/3 innings and allowed two runs on four hits. Cashner, 0-3 over his previous five starts, struck out seven and walked one.

Headley drove in two runs, as did Ronny Cedeno and Rene Rivera. Cedeno, who has hit safely in 14 of his last 16 games, had two hits, as did Kyle Blanks.

The Padres tallied their most runs in the last 11 games and had 13 hits in all.

Phillies starter Tyler Cloyd (2-4) pitched four innings and allowed seven runs on nine hits. He struck out four without walking a batter.

Headley singled home a run in the first to give the Padres an early lead.

Rivera's two-run double was the key blow in the three-run fourth, and San Diego added four in the fifth to make it 8-0. Gyorko, Headley, Blanks and Cedeno all had RBI singles in the inning.

Philadelphia's Cody Asche hit a solo homer in the bottom of the fifth, his fifth of the season.

NOTES: Because Phillies RHP Roy Halladay battled a flulike illness last week, interim manager Ryne Sandberg announced before the game that Halladay and LHP Cliff Lee would flip-flop starts. Halladay, originally slated to face the Padres on Wednesday, will now go Thursday, while Lee will pitch Wednesday. ... Phillies OF Ben Revere, out since July 13 with a broken bone in his right foot, will go to Florida on Thursday for workouts, then play in a still-to-be-determined number of instructional league games. ... San Diego RHP Huston Street was selected the National League Player of the Week for Sept. 2-8. Street had four saves and a victory in the week, during which he saw his scoreless-innings streak snapped at 20 1/3. ... The Padres selected the contract of INF Tommy Medica from Double-A San Antonio. ... Phillies OF Domonic Brown, out since Sept. 1 with tendinitis and bursitis in his right Achilles, took batting practice Tuesday and will be brought along slowly, Sandberg said.
