PHOENIX (AP) — Tuffy Gosewich doubled three times and drove in a career-high four runs, Rubby De La Rosa allowed three hits over seven innings and the Arizona Diamondbacks opened a four-game series against San Diego with an 11-0 rout of the Padres on Thursday night.
Paul Goldschmidt and Mark Trumbo homered and doubled in Arizona's third straight victory.
The Padres were shut out for the third time in the last four games.
San Diego's Odrisamer Despaigne (2-1) allowed eight runs and 10 hits in five innings. De La Rosa (3-2) struck out seven and walked two.
Arizona swept a doubleheader at Colorado on Wednesday and has scored 29 runs in its last three games. The Diamondbacks had eight doubles, tying the franchise record.
On the day the Wildcats signed catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia to a minor league contract, Goosefish, Arizona's everyday catcher with a meek .208 batting average entering the game, had his first three extra-base hits of the season. He has 14 career extra-base hits in 75 major league games and 246 at-bats.
The Diamondbacks jumped on Despaigne for four runs in the first. Trumbo homered with one out. David Peralta singled and scored on a passed ball, Chris Owings singled in a run and Gosewich, who has six hits in the last two games, doubled in another.
Designee got the start in place of Brandon Morrow, who went on the 15-day disabled list on Tuesday with right shoulder inflammation. Designee had won both of his previous starts this year, one of them against Arizona. In San Diego on April 14, he limited the Diamondbacks to one run and two hits through seven innings in a 5-1 victory.
San Diego didn't get a hit after Yangervis Solarte's one-out double in the fourth.
San Diego 1B Yonder Alonso was injured diving for a grounder in the eighth inning. He stopped the ball but had to throw with his glove hand after injuring his right arm. Alonso is among the league leaders with a .333 batting average.
Padres: Manager Bud Black says there's a good chance RH reliever Shawn Kelley, sidelined with a left calf strain, will come off the 15-day DL on Friday, the first day he's eligible to return. ... Black says RH setup man Jaquin Benoit is fully recovered from right shoulder inflammation. Benoit had not pitched in the last five games and seven of the last eight.
Diamondbacks: RHP Archie Bradley, sidelined since being hit in the face by a line drive on April 28, is scheduled to return and start at Philadelphia on May 16. ... Patrick Corbin, coming back from Tommy John surgery, is to pitch an extended spring training game on Monday, then will be sent to the minors. He is expected to join the big league club in early May.
Padres: RHP James Shields (3-0, 3.72 ERA) goes for his fourth consecutive victory, taking the mound in Game 2 of the four-game series in the desert. Shields is among the NL leaders in strikeouts with 48. He was the winning pitcher Sunday at Colorado, despite allowing five runs and nine hits in 5 1-3 innings.
Diamondbacks: RHP Jeremy Hellickson (1-3, 5.20), off to a rough start in his stint in Arizona, makes his second start of the season against the Padres. He took the loss, 5-1, at San Diego on April 14. Hellickson also was the losing pitcher in his last outing, 6-4 against the Dodgers in Los Angeles.
