Padres beat Marlins 5-4

The Padres took an early first inning lead but couldn't hold on very long. 

It wasn't until the 6th inning when Jerry Hairston Jr. hit a double over the head of the Marlins' left fielder that the Padres pulled away with a 3 run rally.  Ryan Ludwick came off the bench and paid early dividends with a base hit and a crafty slide into home that ended up making the difference.

It's also worth mentioning that Yorvit Torrealba continued his hitting streak and pushed it to 14 games with three hits today.

Heath Bell earned his 30th save on a nerve racking appearance where he allowed a run and left runners at first and third.
