    Andrew Cashner threw seven plus innings of shutout ball in Padres 5-0 victory over Miami.

    It took the Padres just over a month, but they are no longer the doormats of the National League West. The Padres shutout win over Miami coupled with the Dodgers loss to Arizona moved the Friars a half game ahead of Los Angeles into 4th place in the division.

    Jedd Gyorko homered for the second consecutive game and Andrew Cashner pitched a gem. Cashner went a career high seven-plus innings to notch his second win of the season.

    The Padres improved to 8-8 at Petco Park.
