SAN DIEGO (AP) — Wil Myers homered twice and doubled, Tommy Pham hit a leadoff homer and Chris Paddack struck out 11 in five impressive innings to match his career high for the San Diego Padres, who beat the Cincinnati Reds 8-2.

The Padres have hit seven homers in winning the first two games of the four-game series.

They came into the series struggling badly after losing 13 of 17 games, including going just 1-5 on a trip through New York and Colorado.
