The Padres came back from an early deficit to take the game 7-4 over the Florida Marlins at Landshark Stadium today.
The Padres have now won 5 series this month and improved their record to 14-13 for the month of August. It is also their 7th series win out of their past 10.
Wade LeBlanc, who was called up yesterday, went 6 innings and gave up 4 runs on 2 walks and also contributed a single of his own.
Will Venable hit his 9th home run of the season, a solo shot in the 4th, and scored 2 runs.
Kevin Kouzmanoff came through in the clutch again and drove in the tying run with a single in the 7th. It was his 75th rbi of the season.
Tony Gwynn drove in what proved to be the winning runs with a triple in the 8th.
Oscar Salazar, who was filling in for Adrian Gonzalez at 1B, went 3-4 and drove in a run.
The Padres are still looking for their first series sweep of the year on the road.
