Ian Kennedy (1-1) allowed one run and three hits in six innings for the Padres. He struck out five.

Four relievers then helped the Padres end a four-game losing streak, including two against the Marlins to begin the series. Huston Street pitched the ninth for his second save.

Amarista's home run came off Nathan Eovaldi (1-1), who held the Padres scoreless through six. Eovaldi struck out eight and allowed six hits.

The Marlins completed their opening homestand with a 5-2 record.
