SAN DIEGO (AP) — Cody Ross and Gaby Sanchez homered off Wade LeBlanc and the Florida Marlins had just five hits in beating NL West-leading San Diego 4-2 on Friday night in Miguel Tejada's first game with the Padres.

Tejada, acquired Thursday from the Baltimore Orioles, started at shortstop for the first time this season and went 0 for 3 with a walk.

LeBlanc has allowed a team-high 16 homers, 11 in his last seven starts.

Ross homered into the second deck in left-center with two outs in the fourth, his 10th, to give the Marlins a 3-1 lead. Sanchez homered to left with one out in the sixth, his 12th, to make it 4-1.

The Marlins got their first two runs in the third on Hanley Ramirez's sacrifice fly and Logan Morrison's RBI single.
