Padres 2, Pirates 0
Wil Myers hit a right single to shatter Tyler Anderson’s unsuccessful offer without a strikeout in the seventh, triggering a two-run rally that led host San Diego to pass Pittsburgh.

Anderson (2-3) allowed two runs on two hits and three goals with five strikeouts in 6 2/3 innings. Tim Hill (2-2), fourth of six Padres pitchers, took the win, and Mark Melancon made his 10th save with a ninth in a row.
