SAN DIEGO (AP) — Ender Inciarte hit two doubles and a triple and drove in a career-high four runs to lead the Arizona Diamondbacks to an 8-4 victory against the San Diego Padres on Monday night.

Inciarte hit a two-run double in the second, when the Diamondbacks scored four unearned runs on five hits off Andrew Cashner and an error, and a two-run triple in the three-run eighth to help break it open. He also doubled and scored in the seventh.

Inciarte also had an outfield assist when he threw out Matt Kemp trying to go from first to third on Justin Upton's single to right in the eighth.

Rubby De La Rosa (2-0) held San Diego to three runs and six hits in six innings for his second straight win. He struck out five and walked one.

The Padres were coming off three straight wins against the defending World Series champion San Francisco Giants.

Cashner (0-2) allowed consecutive singles to Mark Trumbo and Jake Lamb opening the second before striking out Aaron Hill. Second baseman Yangervis Solarte fielded Tuffy Gosewisch's groundball but threw wide of first baseman Yonder Alonso for an error, allowing Trumbo to score. De La Rosa struck out before Inciarte hit a two-run double to left and Chris Owings hit an RBI single to right.

Alonso homered in the second, and Solarte helped pull the Padres within a run by hitting an RBI double in the third and an RBI single in the fifth.

Arizona's Paul Goldschmidt had an RBI groundout in the seventh and the Diamondbacks added three more runs in the eighth.

Cashner struck out nine and walked one in six innings. He allowed seven hits and four runs, all unearned.

TRAINERS ROOM

Diamondbacks: Manager Chip Hale said he'll carry two catchers through at least the Padres series and their right-handed heavy staff. C Oscar Hernandez (hand) remains on the DL.

Padres: Manager Bud Black said RHP Ian Kennedy, on the DL with a strained left hamstring, is making progress. Black said Kennedy could soon throw a bullpen session.

UP NEXT

Diamondbacks: RHP Jeremy Hellickson (0-1, 6.23) is scheduled to make his second start. He made his Diamondbacks debut in a 5-2 loss to San Francisco on Wednesday.

Padres: RHP Odrisamer Despaigne (0-0, 0.00) makes his first start of the season; he moved into the rotation after Ian Kennedy left Thursday's home opener with a strained left hamstring. Odrisamer relieved Kennedy and pitched 4 2-3 perfect innings of relief.
