CINCINNATI (AP) — Jurickson Profar hit a three-run homer, MacKenzie Gore struck out 10 over five innings and the San Diego Padres beat the Cincinnati Reds 8-5.

Gore allowed a run on five hits as the Padres won for the seventh time in nine games.

Eric Hosmer drove in two runs, including a leadoff homer in the eighth.

San Diego will go for its second sweep of the season Thursday of the hard-luck Reds, who have lost 12 of 13 amid a rash of injuries and slumps.

Cincinnati's 3-15 record in the worst in the majors.

Reds starter Vladimir Gutierrez went four innings and was charged with six runs and five hits, walking six and striking out two.
