SAN DIEGO (AP) — Manny Machado had two impressive home runs and Nick Martinez threw seven strong innings to lead the San Diego Padres to a 2-1 victory against the Miami Marlins.

Both homers by the $300 million third baseman came off left-hander Jesus Luzardo.

Machado homered to straightaway center field with two outs in the first inning and then hit a shot into the second deck in left field with one out in the fourth.

Machado took over the team lead with seven homers. It was his first multi-homer game of the season and 31st of his career.

Padres closer Taylor Rogers pitched a perfect ninth inning to pick up his 11th save of the season.
