The Padres blew the game open with 7 runs in the 9th inning, as the team won for the 5th time in 6 games.

“The last week, the last 10 days, we’ve played probably our best baseball,” Tatís said. “We’re going to keep it going.”

“It ended up being a nice day offensively for us,” manager Bob Melvin said. “We won three in a row against Texas, we have a really tough night here the first game and then respond with two big games. Hopefully it’s a trend for us.”

Scheduled starting pitcher Joe Musgrove was scratched due to stiffness in his right shoulder. Nick Martinez served as the opener and tossed three scoreless innings.

“All my pitches felt good, all of my stuff felt pretty tight,” Martinez said. “I wasn’t missing too many locations.”

The Padres are off Thursday, then begin a 4-game series against the Los Angeles Dodgers Friday at Petco Park.
