    The Padres won on new Executive Chairman Ron Fowler's first day at the helm.

    Chase Headley is as hot as the month of August. He added two more RBI's on Wednesday to push his monthly tally to 30. Headley's two-run single in the fourth gave starter Eric Stults the breathing room he needed.

    Stults (5-2) pitched six strong innings, leaving with a 4-1 lead. The Padres added four more runs in the eighth to put the game out of reach.

    The Padres 8-2 victory gave them their third straight series win. The Friars start a six game road trip in Colorado on Friday.
