Arizona Diamondbacks' pitcher Chase Anderson looks for a sign in the first inning of a baseball game …

PHOENIX (AP) -- Yasmani Grandal homered and drove in four runs, Ian Kennedy won in his second game back at Chase Field, and the San Diego Padres beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 7-4 on Sunday.

After struggling his first game back in the desert a year ago, Kennedy (10-11) was sharp against his former team before tiring late, striking out six in 5 2-3 innings.

Grandal provided plenty of support, hitting a deep sacrifice fly in the first inning and clearing the wall easily in the fifth with a three-run homer off Chase Anderson (7-6).

Pinch-hitter Will Venable added a two-run homer and Joaquin Benoit worked a perfect ninth for his eighth save to give San Diego manager Bud Black his 600th career win.

Cliff Pennington hit a solo homer and Miguel Montero had a two-run single for the Diamondbacks.
