SAN DIEGO (AP) — Jose Pirela's two-out, two-run single highlighted the four-run sixth inning that carried the San Diego Padres to a 7-4 victory against the Philadelphia Phillies on Monday night.

Cory Spangenberg hit a leadoff homer in the eighth to finish with three hits and three runs. Pirela, Austin Hedges and Carlos Asuaje each had two hits, and Hedges also drove in two runs.

Philadelphia rookie Rhys Hoskins hit his first two major league home runs, a leadoff shot in the fourth off starter Travis Wood and a solo shot in the seventh off Craig Stammen. Hoskins made his debut Thursday after his contract was selected from Triple-A Lehigh Valley. He got his first hit and RBI on Sunday against the New York Mets.

The teams swapped the lead three times, with the Padres going ahead for good in the sixth on three hits and two walks off Ricardo Pinto (1-1). With the Phillies leading 3-2, Hedges hit an RBI single and Asuaje had a sacrifice fly to give the Padres the lead. Pirela followed with his two-run single.

Jose Torres (7-3) got the last out of the sixth and Brad Hand pitched the ninth for his 10th save.

Hedges also hit a sacrifice fly in the second, and the Padres scored on a throwing error by third baseman Maikel Franco in the fourth.

With runners on first and third and two outs in the third, Philadelphia's Odubel Herrera doubled in one run before Freddy Galvis was thrown out trying to score from first.

Both starters went five innings. Wood allowed two runs and six hits while striking out three and walking two. Philadelphia's Jerad Eickhoff gave up two runs, one earned, struck out five and walked three.
