Jason Marquis and the Padres are on a roll.

Jason Marquis pitched a season high eight innings and collected his fourth win of 2013 as the Padres beat the Marlins 1-0 Wednesday afternoon at Petco Park.

Marquis and Miami starter Ricky Nolasco put on a pitching clinic. Nolasco did enough to win. He struck out nine, allowing just one earned run over seven innings. The lone run he gave up was a sacrifice fly by Yonder Alonzo in the sixth inning.

The Padres continue a remarkable turnaround. After the sweep of Miami, the Friars have won 11 of 14. Although Padres bats were relatively quiet (4-hits), Chase Headley got one of them to extend his hitting streak to 13-games.

Huston Street came on to pitch the ninth to get his eighth save of the season. The Padres begin a 5-game road trip Friday in Tampa Bay.
