In the battle of last place teams, the Phillies took advantage of timely hitting, a couple of Padres errors and a fine performance from starting pitcher Cole Hamels (5-1) to beat the Padres Sunday afternoon at Citizens Bank Ballpark.

Hamels, fresh off his five game suspension for beaning Bryce Harper of the Nationals, struck out five in seven innings of work. He allowed one earned run lowering his ERA to 2.28.

Jeff Suppan took the loss for the Friars. He pitched well but got very little run support. The Padres managed only two runs on just seven hits in a very hitter friendly ballpark.

After losing two of three in Philadelphia the Padres head to Washington for a two game series against the Nationals. Former San Diego State pitcher Stephen Strasburg is expected to throw in Tuesday's game. Tim Stauffer is expected to take the mound for the Padres on Monday, making his 2012 season debut.
